  • Lead singer Zack De La Rocha (from the "Live and Rare" disc): "It seems as soon as the wall of Germany fell, the US government was busy building one between the border between the US and Mexico. Since 1986 as result of a lot of the hate talk and hysteria that the government of the United States has been speaking, 1500 bodies have been found on the border. We wrote this song in response to it." >>
