Revolution/Revolución
Ill Niño Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

We are given this knife, now we're taking their life
The pact is made, we sold our souls for nothing more
The strands of life were once frayed and now we're sacred and afraid
Living out the dreams that seem to be delayed

Que somos libre' pero un cancer
You say that you have found the answer
The future's not for me, in your society
The light you see is never what it seems to be

Confusion, illusion
The nation that you took from me is one in which I won't burn
Because you won't learn
That this is my turn to return

You can't sell us what you steal
We won't buy what isn't real, eh-eh-eh
Our lives aren't secure
Our hearts won't endure
Fuck you and your
Ways

Y mi futuro es negro, que yo soy un peligro
The vision that is sold just never seems to grow
The life that you cannot mold, tú dices que es tu dolor
The fact is played, the story's old, I'm fucking cold

To be like you and have your actions
To buy into the new perceptions
Of how my life should be, the vision I should see
The future and the light is not what seems to be

Confusion, illusion
The nation that you took from me is one in which I won't burn
Because you won't learn
That this is my turn to return

You can't sell us what you steal
We won't buy what isn't real, eh-eh-eh
Our lives aren't secure
Our hearts won't endure
Fuck you and your

Ways
Fuck you and all your ways
(Fuck you and all your ways) Re-re-re-re-
Revolución, revolution
Revolución, revolution
Revolución, revolution
Revolución, revolution




Revolución, revolution
Revolución, re-
