Price of Prohibition + Orion by Jonathan Machen

“Price of Prohibition + Orion by Jonathan Machen”. Music and lyrics copyright 2007 by Jonathan Machen

The Price of Prohibition of the lowly famous weed
To prosecute and persecute, your taxes we shall bleed

Your money goes to spend – what no logic could defend

To make a common criminal of one who does no harm
While revenue from alcohol raises no alarm

Your money goes to spend what no logic would defend

We think we are so smart as a society
We raise our children well – but with a lie we see

What is the price of prohibition
Keeping our brothers in submission
What are the laws we’re afraid to change
That divide our hearts and our brains
