Pillars of Oppresion


Pillars of Oppression

Have you believe the only truth that matters is their own
The more melanin the less evidence needs to be shown
Whether you live or die depends on your pigmentation
Past echoes scream loud memories of the plantation
Humanity drowning in prejudice while its home is dying
We’re about to go extinct and the 1%ers are still smiling

they tag us with false labels to rob us of our dreams
push us to be mindless cogs in corporate machines

A packet of sweets in his pocket mistaken for a weapon
The cop relieves his guilt with a church confession
And what right had he to be in that neighbourhood
Patrolled by those who mistake factuality for falsehood
Removed from the situation, in a world that shows no kindness
Laws controlled by suit-daemons masquerading behind politeness

they tag us with false labels to rob us of our dreams
push us to be mindless cogs in corporate machines

The story rhymes in different continents, the fear is the same
The deciders use brutality to ensure protests appear to be in vain
The sun shines and a father drives his children to a christening
Passer-bys begged them not to shoot, they’re not used to listening
The sun sets and his death is ignored by the elect monsters in power
His children grab his cold hands, the rest of their lives will taste sour

they tag us with false labels to rob us of our dreams
push us to be mindless cogs in corporate machines

Across the globe fundamentalists kill and abuse those of different persuasions
Anger is swallowed and hate spewed even by the youngest of generations
His first victims were a family on their way to their place of worship
‘Thoughts and prayers’ say the fascists, they dare ask us for our mercy
“Get over it”, “it was a long time ago” until shots were fired inside the synagogue
Too white to be called a terrorist, in the oppression machine he’s a functioning cog

they tag us with false labels to rob us of our dreams
push us to be mindless cogs in corporate machines

"just a boy from the favela" they told him his whole life
used all his breaths to change world, they hang on to their spite
Sell borders so you believe your confinement is the best
The Earth contains only two countries, the rich and all the rest
One well-acquainted with violence, starvation and danger
The other to empathy, kindness and generosity, a stranger
