No Sanctuary 07:09
Contorted glass spires Etching shadows // Fissured valleys Wantage erasure Ever slowly crushing Against stone & steel sky Our hands cannot give way Expel the other Resign them to mass graves The foundations of hubris // Built in haste Dissenting reverberations Rupture faulty mortar Cultured hostility // Liberal artifice Revamped red lining // Explosion of houselessness Fat of the land For the gluttonous echelon Left to waste sides // Outskirts Make-shift islands // Sea of dispossession Increased police presence Enforce privatized dominion chorus: A lack of compassion Society claims We are without worth Disproportional affliction // Against marginalized communities Denied access A life without dignity We cannot lay idle Whilst unchecked ravagers // Tear us apart Repetitive precision // Unremitting intent No sanctuary // Nowhere to rest Our heads are plagued // With fears and uncertainties Skyrocketing costs Income inequality Food desertification Health services eroding Our disparity // Will not be our death blow This is no sanctuary // No safe harbor

Ku i // Ka pono Ku'e // No ka aina Ka'a kaua (war tactics) Besieged to cultural famine Those without ha Exhale industrialization Empires // Plantations Constricted // Suffocation 13 conspired Abrogation of a nation Unleashed free reign Expansion // Divided aina Fueled by ko Consumption drove chorus Hewa machines No longer can make us bleed Take back haloa Take root // Hold ground Unlearn their fallacy Defend our sovereignty Madmen have poisoned us To enslave our future Mano haole Took scent // Bloodtrails Desperate to erase Toppled ahupua'a Rainbow of agents Oligarchs footsteps Trails of toxins Followed in their wake Knowledge from our kapuna (we will) reclaim ka 'aina Haloa in hand Return to malama Import disease // Enforce labor suppression Displacement of kanaka // Extreme globalization Install caste systems of racial division Wave after wave of environmental destruction I ku mau mau I ku wa I ku mau mau I ku huluhulu I ka lanawao I ku wa I ku lanawao I ku wa I ku wa huki I ku wa ko I ku wa a mau A mau ka eulu E huki e Kulia Ku'e no ka aina

Hechicería 01:57
En este país donde es dificil encontrar amor Por estar en medio de puro Egocentrista Materialista Egocentrista Materialista! Encadenada a tu mente con tu lengua avientas hechizos Luchando por desencadenarme a lo que siempre Senti falso Ya no puedes creer en la lengua que solo ilusiona y envenena No, no, No,no creas Sus sentimientos no existen No, no No,no creas juramentos de mierda Avientas hechizos creas tu propio infierno Avientas hechizos creas tu propio infierno Infierno que consume y envenena No, no No,no creas Sus sentimientos no existen No,no No,no creas juramentos de mierda

Debauchees obsessions with 19th century vestiges Autocrats will sacrifice all life For the last drinks of black blood Extrinsic to reality Selling neoliberal process Globalization It's failures should not supersede our survival Rising tides know not time Nor the fever of our situation Droughts // Hurricanes Coastal inundation Acidification // Famine Denial // Indifference Akin to genocide Escalating warfare Blistering temperature // Further acceleration Mass diaspora of the afflicted Severed cultural connections Will there be recompense for vanishing homelands Or xenophobia Rising tides Know not time Nor the fever of our situation Droughts // Hurricanes Coastal inundation Acidification // Famine There must be a drastic shift From our current trajectory Emboldened trans-nationalist Encased in disillusionment Crashing us into global crisis Rendering our world uninhabitable Rise up against their injustice Knowledge // Divestment // Direct action
