lyrics

Laws Made for Us
Went to Workman Jr High
Dallas to the East, Fort Worth to the West
There were laws made for us
That kid who brought a saw blade to class
pulled it out and whipped some ass
now no one can bring their bag to class
in the whole damn state of Texas
There were laws made for us
Race riot’s at 3, right after P.E.
you got the Asians and the Blacks
Hispanics and the Whites
Crypts and the Bloods and the Latin Kings
There were laws made for us
Who remembers Andy Chambers
academic title Assistant Principle
shot in the back with a .22 revolver
back in ’89, we were prime time
There were laws made for us
