Freedom (¡Ánimo!)

Thank you the ancestros
shout out to all the pueblo
much love to the hermanas
siguele hechando ganas.

Guerras hay pa sobrar
things are so heavy OMG
toxic masculinity got us ill
white supremacy out to kill.

And that capitalism
got us thinking we can’t live without their system
make it hard to get free
they make it hard to resist them.

From the north to the south to the east to the west
in the country, barrio, hood, rez, and urban rez
an attack against earth is an attack against us all
they make us fight each other as they build pipelines and border walls.

****
Let us overcome our fear
and dismantle this broken system
restore relationship to earth
root ourselves in our indigenous wisdom.

Yeah we stuck out there in that hustle but we know about that grind
we can stop the cucuy if we first liberate our minds
gotta divest, take direct action, and decolonize,
push the red button, lose our fear, and fight for all life.
