Description : Jail ain't fun but writing songs about it is. I recently watched a movie on Netflix - "Imperial Dreams," I believe it was called - a great film about the odds stacked against ex-cons trying to live right. The system doesn't want you to succeed because prisoners are commodities that can be exploited for profit. That's why there's so many of them in America, land of the free - more than any other country on earth, including China, a totalitarian state with 4x our population. And yet we sit meekly by and applaud the disastrous war on drugs as it continues to destroy the lives of millions to no good purpose whatsoever. OK, jesus sorry, there I go again. Sunny War on vocals and guitar. Nice funky guitar and an old-school rock-out break. I'm proud of this song. It will be on the TRIBEZ album, which we look good to finish this week. Please comment - it's always encouraging and helpful.

    Hello Mofo.
    Wow mate I do love the voice in this track.
    The drum at the beginning it give you for a few second only some sort of anticipation feeling like you awaiting to be executed then the voice takes over to give you come and in your comfort zone feeling.
    I absolutely love it and can't wait for the album to be released.
    Really well done to you mate bravo.

    Thank you, Jamid. I did not mean to make you feel like you were about to be executed, but yes, that voice - if I have to die, well it'd be ok listening to Sunny's voice. Just not anytime soon though! We'll be in the studio tonight doing another new song, so just days away from finishing the album. So 8'll be done tonight, with 2 half-done. I can't wait either. :)

LITTLE CLOWN

by Citizen Mofo

I remember what the guard said
“See you soon, little clown”
Now I’m sleeping in a hard bed
Rented room downtown

Well, I may not be a demagogue
Or a society queen
But at least I ain’t no little cog
In the prison machine

CHORUS
I’ll never surrender
My soul or my splendor
I’ll never surrender
I’ll never surrender to you

Sure, I’ve done some stupid things
And I’ve paid the price
I wasn’t born with angel’s wings
But at least I’m nice

To the people I meet on the street
Every man and woman
Cuz every person that I greet
Just like me is human

CHORUS

Let’s talk about what pays your wages
Yeah, mass incarceration
We got more human beings in cages
Than any other nation

Put there by the war on drugs
Forty-six years of it
Turned the government to thugs
Profiteers love it

Unconstitutional in every way
Crime of three centuries
Let’s shut the whole thing down today
And clear the penitentiaries

And then let’s mass incarcerate
Everyone who played a role
To create or administrate
The War on Our Soul
The War on Our Soul
The War on Our Soul
The War on Our Soul
The War on Our Soul
The War on Our Soul
The War on Our Soul
The War on Our Soul

CHORUS

I remember what the guard said
“See you soon, little clown”
Now I’m sleeping in a hard bed
Rented room downtown

Well, I may not be a demagogue
Or a society queen
But at least I ain’t no little cog
In the prison machine
