Track Name: Hacienda Luisita
KOM X
Call to action, the people reactin'
Conditions were ripe cuz the movement’s expandin’
Four hundred years they were held down in chains
Had to break their bonds when the uprising came

The land belonged to the people and the country
When the Spanish came through, the people went hungry
They forced the masses to grow sugarcane
But the peasant starved, not a cent to their name

The years passed, and the country was divided
While the US and Japan made war for profit
The slave master kept making big bucks
but when revolution happened he was dumb outta luck

The devil bought the land by taking from the people
Cojuangco took the throne, to become a new evil
He paid the farmers nine pesos a day,
And forced them to strike, so rebellion was made

ET
Back in the day, before he passed away
Ninoy promised farmers he would give em back they place
Where they chop cane every single day
Building up the wealth of the family's estate

When Cory came, throwing L's in the sky
So well she replied so the land was denied
Til 2004, so bad, had to strike
Po's let the bullets fly, 14 died

KAY D
Now it's August 2010, no one remembers when
the farm workers gave their permission
Negotiators claimed they want stock distribution
But who wants paper when your land's been taken?

Land is life, the personal's political
I see the day when justice is literal
(But) we have to bring it, we are the storm
For genuine agrarian land reform

***
HOOK
Say a prayer for the workers who got murdered by the cops
Hacienda Luisita, where the echoes never stop

***
JEDI
Out in the fields with the broken back and hands
Conditions they be dealin' just to get to a cent
Whole land owned by the rich klan
Aquino in his palace trying to do business

Shed blood on the yellow ribbon he was given
Cory passed away and hand it to the children
Now, still ain't no justice to be found
So we keep fightin' till this system goes down

JOSH (INTELLECT)
Liberation we making
Corruption they fakin'
Farmworkers' rights and the lives of the taken
These politicians out here, suckers for war
Puppets for Uncle Sam and they suckin' for war

In the countryside, farmers continue to unionize
Semi-feudal country with a dictator, brutalized
There's no democracy cause we ain't free
From the chains of greediness and slavery

VICOY
Hindi nyo ba nakikita aming nakikita
(Dont y'all see what we see)
Lupa ng magsasaka iba ang kumikita
(Its the land of the farmers but the landlord makes the money)
Magsasaka ang nag tanim
(The farmers planted the crops)
Inaani ng mga sakim
(Harvested by the greedy)
Simple lng ang hinihiling
(Our wish is simple)
Ibalik ang lupa ng syang saamin
(Just give back our land)
Bakit kailangang gumamit ng baril
(Why do you need to use a gun)
Amin naman ang aming sinisingil
(If we are just trying to take back whats ours)

L.U.V.
I hope when they light that cigarette they'd taste blood in the leaves
Inhale reminders of the lives lost in Tarlac, Philippines
6 years & 14 souls still cry out
When the rich kill the poor, see we multiply
They just waiting on a dead regime
With people power 1, 2, but death comes in 3's
Till the soil grows crops instead of feudil designs
Fuck a yellow ribbon,
Red star, til bullets rewind..
