Prison Song MP3


"Following the rights movement you clamped down with your iron fist," This is referring to the Civil Rights Movement of 1968."Drugs become conveniantly availible for all the kids." This is about to how drugs are easily availible for America's youth."I buy my crack, I smack my bitch, right here in Hollywood." This is about how Hollywood, and America is corrupted and filled with Felony and Drugs.It gives information on how there are nearly 2 million Americans in the prison system.The chorus is about how the prison system is filling up with petty law-breakers and minor drug offenders resulting in them building more prisons "for you and me to live in.""Minor drug offenders fill your prisons you don't even flinch," This is talking about how minor dug offenders fill up the prison system when they should fill the prison system with more serious criminals."All our taxes paying for your wars against the new non-rich." This is about how tax money is used by the government to pay for wars, but the wars do not involve the rich.Nowadays in the corrupted world, about 10 years ago in 1985 there were half the people in the prison system and it was less corrupted back then.The 3rd verse is about how drug research shows that treatment should be increased and we should do away with minimum sentences.Drugs are used to pay for secret wars and are the global policy that the government relies on for the wars. Drugs control the world.Drug money turns into taxes and is used to rig the elections of corporate dictators.




Prison Song MP3



Written by Serj Tankian and Daron Malakian, the song deals with various injustices within the United States prison system. The song expresses the belief that the government is responsible for the spread of inner city drugs and the abundance of homelessness. Though the song is mostly sung by Tankian, a few lines preceding the chorus are sung by Malakian, who mocks, "I buy my crack, my smack, my bitch right here in Hollywood", a reference to the rap lifestyle. The song was released as an unofficial airplay-only single, and a promotional live video of the song was released.


In my opinion. It's about the new world order. Drugs "open your mind" by allowing the ppl to have connected thoughts they can easily turn the world into what they want. Tv to rake in money. Control using stereotypes. "kill" people who stand out by war of others. Like the saying the nail that sticks out gets hammered. They're trying to build a prison by drugs and the "open mind" -killuminati


Idk about you guys but i think the reason why the government isnt actually treating the drug problem is because they are in on it, i can almost guarantee that somebody in the government is responsible for the drugs. In a Kottonmouth Kings song they say "uncle same is slinging sacks behind our backs" i pretty much have to agree that the govt is this corrupt and look for any way to make a buck.


This is the easiest song in the world to interpret because the lyrics say it straight up. The entire song is basically saying that instead of putting non-violent offenders in prison (specifically drug offenders in the case of this song) that they should be given treatment. Another issue is that drugs can be so easily bought and sold right here in America; "I buy my crack I smack my bitch right here in Hollywood!" Also, they are saying that the governments, not just ours but all over the world, are actually benefitting from drug money. I mean seriously, the lyrics "Utilising drugs to pay for secret wars around the world Drugs are now your global policy now you police the globe" and "Drug money is used to rig elections And train brutal corporate sponsored dictators Around the world" are right there! Their shouldn't even be a need for this song to be interpreted.


ok same thing as above but most people caught with drugs are repeat offenders and so its just a growing, ongoing cycle and they need to waste money on more and more prisons because they arent solving the real problem.....they need to put them through rehab to actually cure they're addictions or any other problems they have.


its about how people using drugs need rehab and that a large percentage of them are repeat offenders because they never got real help......he says they need to get rid of mandatory minimum sentences because just sending them away to prison is NOT going to cure them and so they have to build more and more prisons because the people are addicted and keep doing the drugs so they are sent away again......sort of like an ongoing cycle


I agree with the post above it's about drug laws and corruption and how drug abusers should be put in rehab. I think more so it's about how the government makes drugs illegal and the CIA imports drugs so they can be sold on the black market for profit. This money is the government's "black budget", money that is untracked and they can use for secret wars around the world. Also, a lot of people don't know that prisoners work for corporations in prison. Company's pay prisons for cheap labor, which makes the government money, and keeps them from making drugs legal and helping people recover from addiction


I think that serj and daron are just expressing their feelings on the government. Saying that the government are not cracking down on solving the problem of drugs and are just building more and more prisons for a short cut way of dealing with it.The justice system and how it uses its money for useless causes. When the money could be going to better uses. The government is just jailing minor drug offenders so it looks like they're doing something about the drug problem."drugs became convenientlyavailable for all the kids...". This is jus saying that (as you know) that their are so many drug offers, even little kids are availible to do so.I have much respect for soad for writing this song (and many of their others too). Not only are they amazing musicians, but they have great political views. And write songs about real issues throughout the world. Hence their name. (but you all know that, lol)


The song that "Mask Off" samples is called "Prison Song." It was written and performed by a playwright named Tommy Butler in 1978 as part of his musical Selma. Retelling the 60s civil rights movement and the life of Martin Luther King, Selma featured a basis of funk, soul, and gospel for its music, collected on an eponymous double soundtrack album. While the musical itself opened to disparaging reviews from the New York Times, the soundtrack managed to live on and seems to have become a minor crate-digging classic for beatmakers. Felt (a supergroup of Minneapolis duo Atmosphere and LA's Murs), Kool G Rap, and Method Man have lived in its grooves. Producing for Felt, Ant flipped "Prison Song" in 2005, 12 years before Future did, although he was also beaten to the punch by Swedish rap group Looptroop, who sampled it in 2000.


The fact that these are pristine, funky recordings on an obscure release are most likely why Selma found a second life among producers, but Meth took note of the pro-black sentiments and recontextualized them for "Uh Huh"'s intro. Felt didn't. When Ant sampled "Prison Song" for Felt's "Woman Tonight," he focused on two sung lines from which the later song derives its title. In true Slug fashion (despite his only rapping half the song) "Woman Tonight" concerns girl problems, and the analog warmth of the sample fits Ant's toolkit, so nothing's too out of the ordinary there. Recognizable samples are unusual for Metro, so the use of a traditionally-leaning (the drums are for modern audiences) hip-hop beat for "Mask Off," especially a break that's been around as much as "Prison Song," can be read as a move towards an older style of authenticity. It couches one of Future's vulnerable moments in the kind of beat that people used to be called "backpackers" over, but also one that any rapper can hear and recognize as demanding of emotional investment on their part even when removed from the original song's heavy topics. 041b061a72
