Por más guerra que nos echen, mas golpes que nos peguen; mas abierta está esta mente, para combatir la destrucción. Aunque nos llenan de mentiras con hambre queda el alma, silenciosa la violencia, por eso es que se canta. Que sigan disparando el movimiento no se mata. Nacimos en la noche crecimos en la palma. Somos humo, de la boca de un ancestro va flotando. somos mano sanadoras, sonrisas escondidas, donde balas hacen zonas. Somos peyote, somos coyote, somos estrellas, somos tierra sin bandera, somos maquinas, somos lagrimas, We are beautiful we’re irrefutable we are omnipotent we’re militant, resilient we’re autonomous we are the consequence we are consciousness We are the heartbeat of every freedom fighter who came before us and all who will come after Alcatraz, Arab spring, one billion rising freedom schools, the maroons, rebellion thriving we been rising since the dawn of Creation sun in the blood of our veins liberation runs from Muhammed Ali to Sundiata and Assata Rigoberta Menchu, Nkrumah to Zapata Mahatma Gandhi, y Co-Madres daughters and every activist of the global intifada from lunch counter sit ins to million man marches underground railroads, demonstrations, desert crossings bodies on the line stopping amazon logging Wangari’s greenbelt movement to community gardens much love to the legacy of Harriet Tubman alive in the veins of Patrisse Marie Cullors high five to Palestine, and picket lines in Cochabamba respect to Grace Lee Boggs, big up Detroit Summer! shout out to hunger strikers in Pelican Bay and the South Central Farmers representing LA Can’t stop Immokolee or the Brown Berets or Safe Streets, Strong Communities from making real change Can’t stop freedom and we on the train bound for glory, new story, going all the way to the place where we can all attain emancipation from oppression, break the chains from Haiti to Tibet, and worldwide don’t forget the resistance in our roots, and resilience in our breath in the blood of our veins liberation runs we are standing on the shoulders of the ancient ones the power of the people is louder than the evil deceitful and coward people in power all power to the people it’s the hour of the peaceful freedom is ours, yeah freedom is ours En la sangre un desierto cruzando fronteras como muerto para que no pillen la luz dentro del pecho. El movimiento es un techo y casa de ladrillo, ventana hacia el mañana aunque no tenga vidrio. Espiritu en carne viva que nos maten cada día, idea no se muere con sangre inocente ayahuasca en el vientre, historia insurgente Zapatista y profesora estudiante y rebelde buscando libertad del sur al occidente de Cuba hasta Chile humano valiente Latino Americano Africano del oriente Indigena y extraña alien residente, somos billones un movimiento independiente buscando liberación dentro del Corazón insurgente. the power of the people is louder than the evil deceitful and coward people in power all power to the people it’s the hour of the peaceful freedom is ours, yeah freedom is ours
