The Broadways – 2Nd Grade Cells lyrics

Tears are not enough to change a system,
Do we want an equal race for education,
Shop, buy, comsume, this is what we teach our children to look up to,
Economic security doesnt't seem to be the meaning of education to me,
We need to teach about diversity, compassion and love,
About the effects of technology,
To be aware that we destroy while we consume,
To question all authority,
No money for public education
But ample funds to keep people in prison,
Jails can now be run by major corporations,
Prisons offer more and cheaper labor,
Found courage in the center of a bomb, green back dollars,
We can blow up anything we want,
Since when is national defense more important than teaching children,
Im afraid it's always been, state of the union,
Catch phrase builds public opinion in the closed eyes of a nation,
Work around the problem, sweep it under carpets,
Lock it up in prisons til it's forgotten,
Were approaching the millenium,
Education is more important than bombs,
More police on the streets isn't solving problems,
Who are we going to turn to
To teach our children to question this machine, education,
The dead american dream,
In indiana the number of cells built is determined by
The socio-economic status of a class of second graders,
The cells all must be filled,
With every prison that we build we lose four or five more schools,
Tears are not enough
