lyrics

While you wait, while you wait, while you wait a long time
Many people are suffering pain of all kinds
Who are you, who are you that you could tell us what to do?
I will never, no, I’ll never, ever listen to you

I know mad heads who tried to spar with dope
Got K.O.’d and thrown over the rope
Let us now examine this systemic epidemic
I see for many victims it’s beginning with a medic
Givin’ ’em Percocet for this, givin’ em Vicodin for that
The proletariat’s prone to soreness in the back
They don’t want you doing yoga, or even Tai Chi
And they stigmatized the almighty, natural remedy
That magnificent plant that grows like a weed
And aids almost any ailment for anyone in need
I saw a show about a kid that cold had me in tears
She’d been suffering hundreds of seizures a week for years
They left her catatonic like her brain was fried
On the feeding tube, everything was tried
They needed something good, something decent and pure
CANNABIS PROVED TO BE THE MIRACLE CURE!
Now she smiles and laughs, her life is finally positive
She’s playing on the swing-set with the other kids
Meanwhile my Grandmother’s layin’ in pain
They give her pills that scramble her brain
She’s seeing rats crawling on the hospital floors
And this is why you can’t trust doctors because
They’ve got a special interest in the opiate trade
Cancer is a business they own to get paid
And all I know, is the plant will grow
It’s here for a reason, It must be so
These bone headed baboons who claim to be our leaders
Are just a bunch of bullies who prey on helpless creatures
Pot dealers are the modern day Robin Hood
I thank you for your service, everyone who bought it should
‘Cause if you get caught and your shop is marauded
They’ll throw you in a cell and the cops are applauded
Well, news flash, cops smoke weed too
I smoked a joint with Officer O’mally at the zoo
Lamenting the animals locked in the cages
We grabbed the law book and started tearing out the pages
And burned the rest, posted a sign
It read one rule, no victim, no crime
O’Mally said yo, D, rock another rhyme
So I grabbed the microphone, ‘cause the time felt prime
A crowd gathered round as I started to kick it
Then a meter maid walked up, to write me a ticket
O’Mally said stand down, Devlin is a friend
The meter maid ran and locked himself in the lion’s den
People cry that it ain’t worth being alive
Diggin’ Graves and saying goodbye
After seeing someone suffer as the class they call upper
Profit on the lower while lockin’ up the grower
I swore to my Sifu I would never break jaws with tiger claws
Unless self-defense was the cause
Though, I’m angry in my bones, to losin’ it I’m close
I’m clenching my teeth and throwing ‘bows at the post
Trying to live in peace, out of reach of the system
But you don’t have to be choking to become a victim
So let’s get our minds right and prepare for attack
You can’t be on crack if you wanna fight back!

While you wait, while you wait, while you wait a long time
Many people are suffering pain of all kinds
Who are you, who are you that you could tell us what to do?
I will never, no, I’ll never, ever listen to you
