This song was recorded on our very recent tour on october 15th, 2016 by Shawn decker of middleman records.
the sound clip at the end of the song is a live recording i took of a ceremony prayer at a Standing Rock benefit we played in Washington, DC. The prayer was done by the amazing indigenous folx of guatemala in solidarity with standing rock. LIsten to the prayer, it could bring closure in dark, difficult times as these.
They tried to bury us, they didnt know we were seeds!
They tried to silence us
but you cant silence a mind that's free!
appropriate to a system that
doesn't work for the marginalized.
the working class families
the broken home
children that roam
the barrios that will keep them from growing
WE LEARN TO HATE OURSELVES, THIS KEEPS US FROM GROWING
one day they will grow and they will breathe in the stench that pollutes our air. Look around the gentrification that takes place and realize that this land, this plan wasn't for our people. They tried to whitewash our identities.
