Album: Evil Empire (1996)
  • Flip this capital eclipse
    Tha vocal tone has got 'em sweatin' their own apocalypse
    Yes, rebel of tha grains stand masterless
    Tha masked ones cap one
    NAFTA comin' with tha new disaster
    And yes we in wit tha wind an tha plan de Ayala kin
    Are comin' back around again
    Tha slave driver saliva, one night power turns
    Them devils mouths dry, now Mexico burns
    So here they come one by one them killers of the new frontier
    Occupy, causin' fear, come on
    Wit the wind below
    We in wit the wind below
    Wit the wind below

    Flip this capital eclipse
    Them bury life wit IMF shifts, and poison lips
    Yo they talk it, while slicin' our veins yo so mark it
    From the FINCAS overseers, to them vultures playin' markets
    She ain't got nothin' but weapon and shawl
    She is Chol, Tzotzil, Tojolobal, Tzeltal
    The tools are her tools, Ejidos and ovaries
    She once suffocated, now through a barrel she breathes
    She is the wind below
    The wind below
    She is the wind below

    And all the shareholders gonna flex, and try ta annex the truth
    While the new trust is gonna flex, and cast their image in you
    Yeah all the shareholders gonna flex, and try ta annex the truth
    And while the new trust tries ta flex, and cast their image in you
    And GE is gonna flex and try and annex the truth
    And NBC is gonna flex and cast their image in you
    And Disney bought the fantasies and piles of eyes
    And ABC's new thrill rides of trials and lies
    And while the gut eaters strain to pull the mud from their mouths
    They force our ears to go deaf to the screams in the south
    Yeah!
    But we in wit the wind below!
    But we in wit the wind below!
    But we in wit the wind below! Writer/s: TIMOTHY COMMERFORD, THOMAS B. MORELLO, ZACK M. DE LA ROCHA, BRAD J. WILK
