"MELISSA" AGGRESSIVELY PLAYING IN THE DISTANCE
come with me
and you’ll be
in a world
I came of age and found a girl in a Tuscaloosa bar
She cleaned me out and hit it on the sly
I tried to kill the pain, I bought some wine and hopped a train
Seemed easier than just a-waitin’ ‘round to die
Honestly these people had the choice of having access to rights, which they gave up. My taxpayer money shouldn’t be making them comfortable. The more uncomfortable the experience the more likely it is to stick with them. This makes me sick.

The motto of the Alabama Department of Corrections is “Corrections is Working”- the double meaning implies that through the work the state “provides” for them, inmates will be properly rehabilitated so that they can be re-integrated into society. Everyone works in Alabama prisons. As someone who has marginal experience with the Alabama prison system, the lack of slave or nonexistent wages and horrific conditions (particularly in our ONLY women’s prison) only foster a sense of resentment for the state.
