Don’t expect to be accepted, unless you have something to bring.
There are two types of “cons,” that separate the mass.
You have the weak and the timid and those that will kick your ass!
I guess you can say that you gotta fight
To stand up for yourself is your God given right.
But not everyone will they’d rather stay small.
Not everyone’s cut out to be down and stand tall.
It is us few that’ll stand up for the rest
Facing the enemy is the ultimate test.
We are the underdog, outnumbered 10-1
You must be a warrior, because a coward would run.
Many battles have been fought on many a prison yard
Many have survived but many have died hard.
Prison is a constant war of this you can be sure
There is NO love here only hatred is pure.
There is no happiness, no smiles or sunshine
Just mean as hell convicts paying for their crimes
If you are weak just stay the hell outta my way
If you step on my boots you will surely pay
To survive in this world it takes a special kind
He has to be tough with a strong body and mind
Time has certainly broken many a con down
You could either laugh now or shed the tears of a clown
So if you go to the “pen” be strong little brother
Stay down with your people and always protect one another
Stay strong and stay sharp show no sweat on your brow
Be tough kid because you are in my world now.
