lyrics

Cleanse them of virtue, then scrub them of sin
A recipe to dehumanize the poverty stricken
Cleanse them of virtue, then scrub them of sin
Meet their defeat with a sickening grin

War!
War!
War!
They’re delaring war on the poor!

War!
War!
War!
Declaring war on the poor!

Detail the ways in which they fail to thrive
Poison their water to deplete their minds
Detail the ways in which they fail to thrive
Kill their will to stay alive
School then prison keeps the poor in their place
Every leg up comes with a spit in the face
School then prison keeps the poor in their place
25 to life for being a capitalist disgrace
The price the poor pay
For being born that way
On the bottom is where they’ll stay
The price the poor pay
For being born that way
The erasure of dignity, the American way
