Prison Trilogy (Billy Rose) (4:23)

Billy Rose was a low rider;

Billy Rose was a night figher

Billy Rose knew trouble like the sound of his own name

Busted on a drunken charge

Drivin' someone else's car

The local midnight sheriff's claim to fame


In an Arizona jail there are some who tell the tale how

Billy fought the sergeant for some milk that he demanded.

Knowing they'd remain the boss

Knowing he would pay the cost

They saw he was severely reprimanded


nIn the blackest cell on A Block he hanged himself at dawn

With a note stuck to the bunk head

Don't mess with me, just take me home.


Come and lay, help us lay young Billy down.


Luna was a Mexican the law called an alien

For comin' 'cross the border with a baby and a wife

Though the clothes upon his back were wet

Still he thought that he could get

Some money and things that make a life.

It hadn't been too very long

When it seemed like everything went wrong

They didn't even have the time to find themselves a home


This foreigner, a brown-skin male

Thrown into a Texas jail


It left the wife and baby quite alone.


He eased the pain inside him with a needle in his arm

But the dope just crucified him

He died to no one's great alarm

Come and lay, help us lay young Luna down

And we're gonna raze, raze the prisons to the ground.


Kilowatt was an aging con of 65

Who stood a chance to stay alive

And leave the joint and walk the streets again

As the time he was to leave drew near

He suffered all the joy and fear

Of leaving 35 years in the pen


And on the day of his release

He was approached by the police

Who took him to the warden, walking slowly at his side

The warden said You won't remain here

But ist seems a state retainer

Claims another 10 years of your life.


He stepped out in the Texas sunlight

The cops all stood around

Old Kilowatt ran 50 yards then threw himself down on the ground


They might as well just have laid the old man down

And we're gonna raze, raze the prisons to the ground

Help us raze, raze the prisons tho the ground
