Arrested - beaten black and blue
Confession - beaten out of you
You didn't do it - but you still get the cell
In prison - institiutionalised hell
23 hours - banged up day and night
Beatings - given out left and right
By the screws who want to put you down
Degradation - they rub your face in the ground
How many are imprisoned for a crime they didn't do
Don't think for one minute that it couldn't be me or you
So if you feel you're tempted to just ignore this song
Put yourself in their place and write to right the wrong
How many thousands of people
All around the globe are imprisoned
For crimes they never commited?
How many more for their political beliefs?
Or simply because they have fallen foul of vicious
Opressive legal systems that serve
Only to protect the wealthy and powerful elite?
What is perhaps the cruellest blow of
All to these people is when those of us
On the outside simply sit back
And allow them to rot in the cells.
Organisations like Amnesty International
And The Anarchist Black Cross have shown that
By using our collective strength
We can get out many of these people.
There is no excuse for inaction.
At the time of recording
Martin Foran is on hungerstrike
And John Perotti is on fast to death
How many more lives must be screwed up
And wasted before we face up to
Our responsibilities and
Work to support our sisters and brothers in captivity?
