I GOT NO MENS REA!
Written by THE KINGPIN from 201 Poplar


NO VICTIM, NO CRIME, NO GUILTY MIND;
SO WHY AM I DOING MOTHER FUCKING TIME?
I TOLD THE JUDGE I GOT NO MENS REA
HE LAUGHED IN MY FACE AND SENT ME AWAY.
HE TOLD ME SOMETHIN' BOUT' THIS LEGISLATION
BASED ON DECLARATION, PROCLOMATION
IF WE GO FREE THEN THEY GO BROKE
SO POT HEADS GO TO JAIL IN A PUFF OF SMOKE
I GOT NO MENS REA
I GOT NO MENS REA
THEN I WENT TO TRIAL TO FACE MY VICTIM
INSTEAD THEY MADE ME ANSWER TO THE SYSTEM
PERPETRATIONS ON THE PEACE AND DIGNITY
THIS JIM CROW STATE STILL ENFORCES BIGOTRY
I AIN'T LIVIN' MY LIFE AT THE BACK OF NO BUS
THEY TALKIN' BOUT' WE LIKE THEY AIN'T US.
I GOT NO MENS REA
POT IS A PLANT NOT SOME DEADLY DRUG
THEY BUSTIN' TOKERS LIKE A 2-BIT THUG
POT SNIFFIN' PIGS OUT HUNTIN' FOR THE LOUD
GUNNIN' FOR NIGGERS TO SHOOT EM' DOWN
DEAD IN THE STREET WITH A BLUNT IN THEY HAND
THE PIGS GOTS A MEDAL FOR BEIN DA' MAN.
I GOT NO MENS REA
WHEN IT'S YOU AND YOURS YOU'LL GET THE CLUE
WHAT GROWN FOLKS DO AIN'T UP TO YOU
I AM THE LAW; I GOT THE FINAL SAY
UNTIL I VIOLATE YOUR RIGHT OF WAY
I'VE GOT NO MENS REA
I'VE GOT NO MENS REA
I'VE GOT NO MENS REA
