People Of The Sun
Yeah, people come up
Yeah
We better turn tha bass up on this one
Check it

Since fifteen-hundred and sixteen, minds attacked and overseen
Now crawl amidst the ruins of this empty dream
With their borders and boots on top of us
Pullin' knobs on the floor of their toxic metropolis

But how you gonna get what you need to get?
Tha gut eaters, blood drenched get offensive like Tet
Tha fifth sun sets get back reclaim
Tha spirit of Cuauhtemoc, alive and untamed

Now face tha funk now blastin' out ya speaker
On tha one Maya, Mexica
That vulture came to try and steal your name
But now you got a gun
Yeah, this is for the people of the sun

It's comin' back around again
This is for the people of the sun
It's comin' back around again, uh

It's comin' back around again
This is for the people of the sun
It's comin' back around again, uh

Yeah, never forget that the whip snapped ya back
Ya spine cracked for tobacc-oh I'm the Marlboro man, uh
Our past blastin' on through the verses
Brigades of taxi cabs rollin' Broadway like hearses

Troops strippin' Zoots, shots of red mist
Sailors blood on the deck, come sista resist
From the era of terror, check this photo lens
Now the City of Angels does the ethnic cleanse

Uh, heads bobbin' to tha funk out ya speaker
On tha one Maya, Mexica
That vulture came to try and steal ya name
But now you found a gun, you're history
This is for the people of the sun

It's comin' back around again
This is for the people of the sun
It's comin' back around again, yeah

It's comin' back around again
This is for the people of the sun
It's comin' back around agai

It's comin' back around again
This is for the people of the sun
It's comin' back around again

It's comin' back around again
This is for the people of the sun
It's comin' back around
Of the sun
