Krack Babies All Lined Up


Been fighting since they were born
If she only knew the true cost of her lust
There'll lined up, side by side
So young, yet so lost
There'll Krack Babies all lined up

Gates open inward, alarms sound off
You're inside now, there's no way out
County hospital in plain sight
Freedom rolls down Interstate 5
There'll Krack Babies all line up

They keep coming, twenty at a time
From Unit M1 to Unit S4
Doesn't matter if you're male or female
Doesn't matter if your brown or black
There'll Krack Babies all lined up

Just keep marching, side by side
Just keep moving on
Keep your hands held behind your back
You're only out for a few minutes at a time
There'll Krack Babies all lined up

Many will soon be young adults
While some are way too young
Still other's need that special care
Few will bear children of their own
But there're still Krack Babies all lined up

They listen to their PO's
Don't want to go to the hole
Where feelings of despair
Takes over their lost souls
There'll Krack Babies all lined up

Eastlake Juvi in such disarray
Crumbling buildings
Fences to mend
Small patch of green surrounded by walls
Home to Krack Babies all lined up

Society says you must pay for crime
But must you also pay for parents mistakes?
Sure there not innocent by any means
Didn't get here for stealing beans
There'll Krack Babies all lined up

One day soon they'll be free
Get back home
Maybe she'll be clean
Maybe she'll be in need
Just a Crack Baby that needs her love
