People of the Sun
by Rage Against the Machine

Hey, people come up
Yeah, you better turn the 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?
The gut eaters, blood drenched get offensive like Tet
The fifth sun sets get back reclaim
The spirit of Cuauhtémoc, alive and untamed
Now face the funk now blastin' out your speaker
On the 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
Your spine cracked for tobaco, 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 sister resist
From the era of terror, check this photo lens
Now the City of Angels does the ethnic cleanse, uh
Heads bobbin' to the funk out your speaker
On the one, Maya, Mexica
That vulture came to try and steal your 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 again

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

@Toren Bezaro And we make it unhealthy for anyone and I do mean anyone who fucks with us.

This song is about 'Mexicans', which I wouldn't be surprised if you knew already. But I think the Irish and Mexicans have many things in common. Both unhealthily Catholic, both unhealthily enjoy alcohol, and both were persecuted for being outsiders. Hence the Chicano and Morrissey phenomenon.

@Ramon Come back to us anytime brother, you're always welcome, always.

My history teacher played a video with this song in it because we were learning about the conquistadors

Damn my history teachers avoided TEACHING us about the horrors the spainards commited towards the indigenous people. Actually I ended up finding out MY history till got I got older. Which is sad tbh. Talk about a serious identity crisis.
