Hey, look at me, I'm in prison, big deal, the walls of

Societal retribution keep me contained in a small

Confined space but I won’t be miserable about it. 


They feed me three meals a day, what can I say?

The convict’s norm is to gripe and complain,

But that won’t lessen my plight.


I won’t be like the many who cite abuses and misuses and

Ignores the cause of the effect,


Yeah, I'm in prison where you can’t see who the gangsta’ is

Or who the real men be, got us locked down but still

We move around, around and play the game like we

Ain’t gone,

Jones in this Jones’ in that, still stuck in a corner

Trying to flip that stack,

Mo’ killa’s in here, so I gotta be slick,

Got on the internet and see if I hit.


It aint always like that though, some get in and learn

They don’t want no mo, turn they life round and grow,

They givin’ out degrees up in here, so


I’d be a fool not to up my stock,

And give this education thing a shot.


Yeah, in prison I learned something new

What they say about “Knowledge is power” is true,

I come to realize this aint new at all, just new to me

And I refused to be, the same ol’ me that I used to be

You can look at me and see, I might be in prison

But prison aint in me. 


I'm in Prison
