Lyrics:

THE STREET EXPLODES AS THE BRAIN
FROM THAT CHILDHOOD
BETWEEN THE BADNESS AND THE GOODNESS
THE FIRE THAT FREEZES THE BULLET
THAT RICOCHETS AND IMPACTS
AGAINST A COTTON DOLL
THE POSSIBILITY OF WAR WITHOUT HUNGER
OF HUNGER WITHOUT CRYING
OF PAIN WITHOUT WHIPS
THE AIR OF THE AFRICAN BEAUTY WHICH
WITH HIS POWERFUL MAGIC
REBELS AGAINST AN IMPLACABLE AND DARING WORLD
LIFE SLACKING AND RUPTURING
THE NONSENSE OF THE LEGEND
THE VOICE OF ALL THOSE WHO BELIEVE

THE WIND WITHIN FOUR WALLS
COLD AND BLACK
HITTING LIES STRONGLY

THE WAR IN OPEN FIELD
WHICH INFAME
SEEPED IN THROUGH THE PIPES OF THE REVOLUTION

THE RACE BURSTS INTO THE WORLD
WHICH FLEES AND TRAPS LIKE A WEED
INFECTED WITH PARASITES.

-

LIGHTNING FLASHES IN DEADLY TIMES
RAW AS DEAD FLESH
MISERY THAT LIES TO TOOTHLESS PEOPLE 
AND TAKES ADVANTAGE TO REPRESS THEM

POWER THAT SHINES FOR THE STOLEN GOLD 
AND FEEDS THE UNDESERVING PEOPLE
POWER THAT BECOMES DISPROPORTIONATE 
AND BLOWS UP AS A BOMB

LINKED TO A FIERCE BATTLE
ALIVE  AND BLOODY AS WATER
THE SEARCH FOR FREEDOM
FREEDOM, FREEDOM, FREEDOM!

THE CAVERNS FULL OF COLLAPSED 
AND NON ENDING TUNNELS
SPILLING REBELLION FROM THE FULL WISDOM
A SHADOW CONFRONTING TWO SORTS OF HUMAN BEINGS

ONE IS THE INHUMAN FARCE 
THAT HAS LASTED MORE THAN 400 YEARS.
FLASHES OF LIGHT REFLECTING A ROTTEN SOCIETY:
THE OPPRESSION OF HUMANITY

SLIT LIVERS BUT PURE HEARTS
THEY STRUGGLE FOR CIVIL RIGHTS
UNITY AND EQUALITY
TO COMBAT IMPERIALISM, TO FIGHT OPPRESSION

AGAINST THE UNSCRUPULOUS BEING, THE SOUL THIEF
THAT BURNS OUT AS A GAS CHAMBER
IN CLOTHES AND NAILS

AND IT BLOWS UP LIKE A VOLCANO!

A SHOT IN THE BACK AND AN EXPLOSION IN THE FACE
WALLS THAT WANT TO BURY JUSTICE UNDER DEPRAVED NUMBERS
THE REVOLUTION IS RIGHT PRESENT 
AND VISCERALLY TIMELESS
IN WARRIORS, FOR TRUTH AND LIBERATION
HONEST PEOPLE WHO WON THEIR FREEDOM IN THE PAST
AND WILL KEEP ON WINNING 

SO IN THE FUTURE

-

LACRIMOGENOUS GAS EXPANDING
AVOIDING SUPPORT TO THE WEAKEST
IN FRONT OF THE UNHAPPINESS AND THE OPPRESSED

PRESSURE ROCKETS BURNING 
THE CLEVERNESS OF THOSE WHO ARE RISING
EVERYONE, OF ALL COLORS

CUT HEADS WARNING BLOOD RIVERS
GETTING WET BY THE HOT RAIN
WAKE UP BEFORE DYING LIKE A DOG

HOPE IS BORN WHEN THE FIRST APPLE FALLS DOWN
FROM THE HANGED TREE

NO LONELINESS, FENCES NOR CANNONS
WILL BE ABLE TO DEVASTATE
THE INCREDIBLE HEART OF FREEDOM

THE BEAST MARKED BY CARBON AND BOMBS
BY THE GREED OF THE BLIND
AND THE ONE-EYED PERSON

GUNS OF JUSTICE BURIED
IN A WELL OF VIOLENCE AND TRICKS
A VILE SENTENCE

AT POINT-BLANK RANGE
THE FIGHT OF WOMEN AND MEN
IN THIS LAND

– 

SHE’S A POET
SHE’S A REVOLUTIONARY
SHE’S A BLACK MAMA
SHE’S A BLACK BLACK MAMA

SHE’S A POET
SHE’S A REVOLUTIONARY
SHE’S A BLACK MAMA
SHE’S A BLACK BLACK MAMA
