    Date: 04.07.08 | by Judge Tom.


    Who broke the law, we broke the law

    i got locked up for hitting my brother in the jaw

    i got caught with cocaine and a gun

    now im locked up and i cant see the sun, now im in jail it aint much fun                                                                             

    im tired of my mother throwin water in my face

    she get me so tight i threaten her then leave the place

    i know i did wrong so now im in jail

    thats wack they cant give me a bail

    i had to go to court for cutting school

    i was stupid i feel dumber than a fool

    i spit in my moms face but i was only nine

    my mother chose to call the cops instead of kicking my behind

    these stories keep on going but dont blame the judge

    its our fault we broke the law with no budge

    now who has survived – well some of us did and some of us died

    now who has survived – well some of us did and some of us died

    now who has survived – well some of us did and some of us died.




    Alex was inspired by some of the teen stories he read in “They Broke the Law, You Be the Judge” by Free Spirit Publishing.
