​Maria

This song is by Rage Against the Machine and appears on the album The Battle of Los Angeles (1999).

Original video
Tha sun ablaze as Maria's foot touches tha surface of sand
On northern land as human contraband
Some rico from Jalisco passed her name to tha boss
She stuffed ten to a truckbed, she clutches her cross

Here comes tha exhaust and it rips through her lungs
She's off fast to pasture, like cattle she'll cross
Degree 106, sweat and vomit are thrown
And she prays and suffocates upon tha memories of home

Of yanqui guns for blood debts on tha loans
Of smoldering fields rape rubble and bones
Of graves hidden trapped up in visions of war
I am nothing, no one, nobody no more

These are her mountains and skies and she radiates
And through history's rivers of blood as she regenerates
And like tha sun dissapears only to reappear
She's eternally here, her time is near
Never conquered but here

To tear away at tha mask

And now she got a quota
Tha needle and thread crucifixion
Sold and shipped across tha new line of Mason Dixon
Rippin' through denim tha point an inch from her vein
Tha foreman approach, his steps now pound in her brain

His presence it terrifies and eclipses her days
No minutes to rest, no moment to pray
And with a whisper he whips her
Her soul chained to his will
"My job is to kill if you forget to take your pill"

Her arms jerks tha sisters gather round her and scream
As if in a dream eyes on tha crimson stream
Numb as her wrists spit shots of blood to tha floor
I am nothing, no one, nobody no more

These are her mountains and skies and she radiates
And through history's rivers of blood she regenerates
And like tha sun dissapears only to reappear
Maria she's eternally here, her time is near
Never conquered but here

Uh, to tear away at the mask
Away at the mask
To tear away at the mask, uh

No minute to rest
No moment to pray
No minutes to rest
No moments to pray
No minutes to rest
It eclipses her days
Just a moment to pray, uh

To tear away at the mask
Away at the mask
To tear away at the mask
To tear away at the mask
