lyrics

Cochambamba water capitol of Bolivia
Aguas de Tunari Italian mambo dynasty
come dance now in the floods of follia
in the waters of life is the evolution of me

crack open a hydrant there's a party in the streets
i don't want you rights like i don't want your police
my mother our earth is hurting silent tears she cries
the literal and figurative well’s not empty yet but it's looking dry

fuggedabout your rights
ignite your life

mni wiconi under my feet
sacred water of my Momma run thru bad mans streets
i let no privateers put an end to my fun
them too join in my evolution

would if they knew it be good for them — and me and you
100 monkeys gathered i can feel the tipping point comin on soon
look inside see that light within?
you don't need no ringleader to tell ya that you're free every single moment of your time

con ruido de león hoy to digo ya basta
hoy abro mis alas de condor y retomo mi libertas
hoy como nunca me despierto de la pesadilla
y abandono las cuerdas
esas cuerdas que me atan

chaymi chay runa
imarayku qollqeqa ñawpaqta kawsanchismanta?
manam munanichu
paqariypaq kawsayniyki, khunan ruwasqayki
(such is man
why place money before life?
this is not what I want
the cause of your future will be your present)

international styling unification is the key

el underground hoy se levanta para gritar ya basta
grande es su maquina y su gente nos aplasta
nuestro sacrificio siempre les llena la panza
y no descansa la esperanza en que algún día
reine el equilibrio y acabar con ese delirio
de diferencia de razas superioridades o de cualquier dominio
llenemos de cualidades
pensemos con ingenio
hagamos hermandades
sin imponer imperio

love and respect for each and everyone
Kuyayky & Askultura coming rougher as one
united we stand to mother earth we belong
no more policeman no more machine gun
big brother attacking imposing his oppression
wants to drill our land to make a water corporation
raids, depression, upbringing deportation
embracing the underground is the only solution

nothing belongs to us in governments we do not trust
the water it finds rust our bodies they find the dust

we want nothing to do with this no anarcho-communists
no liberation-theory marxists nor happy capitalists

in the western hemisphere can we live without interfere
from european politricks and religions of the hypocrites?

turtle island time to rise up maka'takiya pachamamma,
nothing belongs to us it’s in the water that I trust

el pueblo unido jamas será vencido
un pueblo cosiente nunca mas será asiente

"it's in water that I trust"
