Born in Flames
The Red Krayola Lyrics


At a new life we took aim
We set the vast conglomerates aflame
The working class avowed its name
Of America's mysteries none remain

We broke the hidden tyrannies
Of the reptilian joint-stock companies
Nor did their armed brutality
Ever bring us to our knees
We are born in flames

Into the darkness of the past
We've thrown the shamans of the ruling class
The struggle of the exploitеd mass
Has broken the oppressors lash

Wе are born in flames

The war of great heroic deeds
Confirmed the death of inhuman creeds
The people now can fill their needs
On truth and reason now we feed

We are born in flames

Hi Everyone,

Here are the lyrics for Born In Flames

BORN IN FLAMES

At a new life we took aim
We set the vast conglomerates aflame
The working class avowed its name
Of America’s mysteries none remain

We broke the hidden tyrannies
Of the reptilian joint-stock companies
Nor did their armed brutality
Ever bring us to our knees

We are born in flames

Into the darkness of the past
We’ve thrown the shamans of the ruling class
The struggle of the exploited mass
Has broken the oppressors lash

We are born in flames

The war of great heroic deeds
Confirmed the death of inhuman creeds
The people now can fill their needs
On truth and reason now we feed

We are born in flames

Against external perturbation
The party-hearth of culture education
Achiever all history’s confirmation
Our social democrat consolidation

In brotherhood and sisterhood
We are prepared to give our blood
Defend new life- crush those who would
Deny the right for which we stood

We are born in flames

A song by Mayo Thompson for the film Born In Flames

I've listened to this song for a long time and never gotten a full handle on exactly what she's saying. Here's a shot at the lyrics:

"At a new life we took aim, we set the vast conglomerates aflame
The working class avowed its name, of America's mysteries
None remain!
We broke the hidden tyranny of reptilian joint-stock companies
Nor did their armed brutalities ever bring us to our knees

We are born in flames
We are born in flames
We are born in flames

Into the darkness of the past we've thrown the chains of the ruling class
The struggle of exploited masses has broken the oppressor's lash

We are born in flames
We are born in flames

The war of great heroic deeds confirms the [debt/death/depth] of inhuman greed
People now can fill their needs,
Of truth and reason now we sing

We are born in flames
We are born in flames

Against external ... [the party of] ... education
And ... all history's confirmation of social ... 
In brotherhood and sisterhood we are prepared to give our lives

Fight tonight, crush those who would ... 
... for which we stood—we are born in flames

We are born in flames
We are born in flames
We are born in flames
We are born in flames

Any suggestions?
