Jail Mein
Jail Mein
Tihar Jail Mein
Central Jail Mein

Makhi gira garam tel mein
Tihar Jail Mein
Central Jail Mein

Rehena parega Tihar Jail mein
Central Jail mein
Jail Mein

This place is full of half time crooks
Nuff little boys with a wicked man look
Nuff innocent man weh mistook
And nuff half time crooks who really feel shook

Then you have some politician and hardened criminal
Separate ward for political prisoners
Life is sour like vinegar
The judge will come sign my fate
Seal it off with the signature

Then they locked us down ina the Andamans
And ina Kala Pani
Devil’s island
What do they want from me?
Nuff innocent man caught up ina jail
But you know we must prevail
But you know we must prevail

Media blackout ina government crack down
Who pass the order
Right from the top down

FTII lock down
Hyderabad lock down
JNU lock down
Knowledge is lock down

On the run from goons and cops now
RSS want to draw some blood now
Run the streets avenues and blocks now
Violence must stop
The violence must stop now
