Well, it is such a useless waste
filing all those folks away
but its business as usual, today.
See, they were tryin to get over
on a market that s been cornered
(carved by ol Joe Kennedy, and his like).
It doesn t have to be this way,
the stigma s built to tilt the play.
It doesn t have to be that way.
Between Lorrilard and Escobar
the difference is who writes the laws
when genocide s a racket in itself.
There is no debt to be fulfilled
by making people criminals
and turning loose the damned instead.
is made the villain.
This market s covered
by bad muthas.
It doesn t have to be this way.
I hope I m free to see the day
when business ain t so usual - one day.
