No Cash – Knowledge Is Power lyrics

Detention, suspension and power tripping "teachers"
Feed me candy flavored lies like priests, nuns and preachers
Told what to wear and what to think when to piss and when to speak
Indentured to my dejected state. Spiritless 5 days a week

Discipline, conformity, walking single file down a dead end street
If it's not taking me where I need to be, fuck education, at least my mind is free
12 years down the drain for me, useless facts and lies of your white history
If it's not taking me where I need to be. Fuck education, at least my mind is free

Crooked pigs ward the halls with armor and a loaded piece
Random "routine" locker searches, they now own yer property
Told to graduate and get a job, fulfill the old American dream
So stay in school and be molded into a fucking gear for their machine!
