You gotta keep 'em separated

The kids are strappin' on their way to the classroom
Like the latest fashion
Like a spreading disease
The gangs stake their own campus locales
Getting weapons with the greatest of ease

And if they catch you slippin' then it's all over pal
CHORUS
If one guy's colors and the other's don't mix

They're gonna bash it up
Hey man you talkin' back to me?
Take him out
You gotta keep 'em separated
Hey man you disrespecting me?
Take him out
Hey they don't pay no mind
You gotta keep 'em separated
If you're under 18 you won't be doing any time
Hey come out and play

By the time you hear the siren
It's already too late
One guy's wasted and the other's a waste

It oges down the same as a thousand before
One goes to the morgue and the other to jail
No one's getting smarter
Your never ending spree of death a violence and hate
CHORUSNo one's learning the score

Is gonna tie your own rope
