Lyrics:
Every official that comes in Cripples us leaves us maimed Silent and tamed And with our flesh and bones He builds his homes Southern fist Rise through tha jungle mist Clenched to smash power so cancerous A black flag and a red star A rising sun loomin' over Los Angeles Cause for Raza livin in La La Is like Gaza on to tha dawn of Intifada Reach for tha lessons tha masked pass on And seize tha metropolis It's you that it's built on Everything can change on a new years day Everything can change on a new years day Everything can change on a new years day And everything changed on a new years day, c'mon War within a breath It's land or death War within a breath It's land or death War within a breath It's land or death War within a breath It's land! Their existence is a crime Their seat their robe their tie Their land deeds Their hired guns They're tha crime Shots heard underground round tha rapture Tha world's eye captured At last in a Mexican pasture Tha masked screaming land or death Within a breath A war from tha depth of time Who shot four puppet governors in a line Who shook all tha world bankers Who think they can rhyme Shot tha landlords who knew it was mine Yes, it's a war from tha depth of time Everything can change on a new years day Everything can change on a new years day Everything can change on a new years day And everything can change on a new years day, c'mon Oh, Hear the masked scream War within a breath It's land or death War within a breath It's land or death War within a breath It's land or death War within a breath It's land or death It's land or death YEAAAH! oh, c'mon, c'mon, yes, yes, yes It's war within a breath It's land or death War within a breath It's land or death War within a breath It's land or death War within a breath It's land or death
