Without A Face

Album: Evil Empire (1996)
  • Uh! Got no card so I got not soul
    Life is prison, no parole, no control
    Jura got my number on a wire tap
    'Cause I jack for similac, fuck a Cadillac
    Survive, one motive, no hope
    'Cause every sidewalk I walk is like a tightrope
    Yes, I know, my deadline sire, when my life expires
    I'm sendin' paper south under the barbed wire
    The mother of my child will lose her mind at my grave
    It's my life for their life so call it a free trade
    "Por vida" and our name upon the stall
    I took a death trip when I tried to cross the white wall

    Walk unseen past the graves an the gates, born without a face
    One motive no hope ah, born without a face
    Walk unseen past the graves an the gates, born without a face
    One motive no hope ah, yeah, born without a face
    Without a face

    Yeah, I tried to look back to my past long lost
    A blood donor to the land owner holocaust
    Pops heart stopped, in came the air drop
    Flooded the trench he couldn't shake the toxic shock
    Maize was all we needed to sustain
    Now her golden skin burns, insecticide rain
    Down with DDT, yeah you know me
    I'm raped for the grapes, profit for the bourgeoisie
    War tape boomin', path is Luminoso
    I'm headed north like my name was kid 'Cisco
    To survive one motive no hope, ah
    It's hard to breathe with Wilson's head around my throat
    Strangled and mangled another SS curtain call
    When I tried to cross the white wall

    When I tried to cross the white walls

    Walk unseen past the graves an the gates, born without a face
    One motive no hope ah, born without a face
    Walk unseen past the graves an the gates, born without a face
    One motive no hope ah, born without a face

    You say fortify, reaction, you divide
    And you say fortify, reaction, reaction
    And you say fortify, reaction, reaction
    You say fortify, reaction, you divide Writer/s: Brad J Wilk, Timothy Commerford, Tom Morello, Zack M De La Rocha
