wonderdog I tried but I find the shortness of the tracks disorienting. For those into "screamo" this collection is not only a bargain, it's for a good cause.

Track Name: Homesick - Resist: Invasion/Rebuild: Solidarity
Our finger’s on the trigger
Slip from sanity
You know I’m losing it
Give in to this hate that’s been bred in me
Indoctrinated this from birth
Taught the foundations to live in this world with apathy

The powerless and enslaved
Gagged, bound and in chains
We are the hopeless generation

But still you wave your flags and say it’s all in the past
You say I’m free

And every Invasion Day
The attempted assimilation of my ancestry
Becomes so clear to me
The underlining racism and bigotry

But still you wave your flags and say it’s all in the past
It was cultural genocide
But still you wave your flags and tell me free

Don’t tell me I’m free

And in 1788 death was brought to this place
Cultural annihilation
A time in history that will resonate
But still you wave your flag and tell me I’m free

/

Brothers and sisters listen to me
I want you to be part of the struggle
Don’t just sit back and watch as we bleed

Don’t say you want to stand with us
I want to stand in solidarity
But solidarity is not enough
Got to take action and fight the system

There’s no freedom for any of us
Track Name: Novelas - Constellations
Our voices will carry still

Long shadows form
As the sun sets
On integrity and hopefulness
The restless lull
Of voices muse
Under pressure of social cues
And we partake
In shaking ease
I follow as you lead

Stumbling in darkness
As our bodies collide
Voices caught in hollow throats
I am trapped within your eyes
We were star-crossed constellations
That’s what you led me to believe
Wake me from the haze and sweat
I am fighting just to breathe
Wide mouths gape open
To taste what’s undeserved
You’re becoming obsessed
With the obtaining of flesh
No remorse
Nothing earned
I put trust in good intentions
I put trust in what was said
I put trust in a boy who created a toy
Out of the drugged girl
On the bed

But with these hands
I will fight
To the death
For the sake of the girl
Who can’t catch her breath

Catch her breath

Long shadows form
As the sun sets
On integrity and hopefulness
Long shadows form
As the sun sets
But our voices will carry still
Track Name: Gouge Away - Enough.
Eyes like wolves hunting innocent prey
Seeking out victims to play in your game
Manipulate to fill inside where you've dug your own void
Memories are creeping, and stalking, and haunting
Unfriendly reminders of fiendish behaviors still
Fingertips drag across flesh
Like fragments chisel in a headstone
Invading the hairs on my skin
Crawling up the spine, consuming the mind
Doubting myself because I didn't fight or scream
Keeping your transgression buried underneath
I've done enough believing in the devil
That I forgot who he was after.
Selfish ways have become sadistic
I wasn't born to die a statistic
Silenced by shame, I've hid in secret
I wasn't born to die a statistic
Questioned what I should have done different
I wasn't born to die a statistic
This isn't my guilt to live with
I wasn't born to die a statistic
I wasn't born to die a statistic
I wasn't born to die a statistic
Track Name: Pure Pressure - Open Case
through desserts and different bodies of water
carrying the weight of an unforeseen future
funny how they claim it's all part of some scheme
and with one single glance, go from human to thief

barriers built to keep out the fear
instead they reaffirm facts that aren't real
ne uno mas, ne uno olvidado
gotta stand for the voices unheard

it’s just what they want, doubt overflowing
rivers of hate eroding progress made
but if histories proven anything
it's that out of pain will come change

barriers built to keep out the fear
instead they reaffirm facts that aren't real
ne uno mas, ne uno olvidado
gotta stand for the voices unheard
Track Name: Maricón - No Means No
Don't be a fool
making me sick
think with your mind not your dick
we have feelings can't you see
Shedding tears with a smile on your face
abuse depression
it's driving me insane
enough is enough its time for a change
No MEANS NO
Track Name: Trust Issues - Cursed
Cursed
Whispers and daggered eyes
Ghosts of your past haunts me

Innocent voices knocking at your door
Pleading to be heard
Drag me down
Losing everything and everyone I love

Whispers and daggered eyes
Ghosts of your past haunts me

Lack of remorse
Shameful escape
Frustration written on my face
Mistakes I've never made ghosts of your past cursed me

I see you on the street, claiming you as a stranger
Your character holds no weight in my mind
This stems from fucking anger

It takes everything in me not to self destruct
I'm tired of knowing that you don't give a fuck
Track Name: Rebirth - Lilith
Words unsaid are louder in the silence. Screaming, knowing our compliance.
The bitten tongue, bleeds of guilt. Our sense of moral direction wilts.
A pain we will never feel, never given a chance to heal.
In the hands (of those) no different to our own.
Systemic oppression, objectified obsession. Still many viewed as a possession.
The pain ignored, will intensify. Accepted norms, few are willing to defy.
Lilith was punished for having her own mind. Seen as sin, time after time.
Bearers of the womb suffer this fate. Will they escape this oppressive hate?
Exiled from sanctuary. We enable this reality.
WE ARE GUILTY.
Track Name: Bitter Verses - Overload
YOU CALL IT PERVERSION - I CALL IT INDIVIDUALITY
YOU FEEL DISGUST - I FEEL LOVE AND HUMANITY
YOU THINK THERE IS A PREDESTINATION OF MAN AND WOMAN -
I THINK FREE DEVELOPMENT HAS SHOWN
- THE BOOK OF LIES IS OVERLOAD -
Track Name: Longclaw - Best Intentions
I saw the light
I made it shine
And I wonder if you feel with a heart like mine.

Through the darkest clouds
our ignorance resounds
and miss the beauty in the world that truly astounds

I can see there's an ocean of pain,
a collective shame I did nothing to erase.
We can hear a deafening cry,
a culture that stood by and did practically nothing.

I saw the light.

x2

I still feel with a heart, no matter how much pain affects it.
I still feel with a heart, a heart with the best intentions.

I can see there's an ocean of pain,
a collective shame I did nothing to erase.
We can hear a deafening cry,
a culture that stood by and did practically nothing.
I can see there's a promise to make,
a decision to take a stand and not just sit by.
We can lend a hand to the weak,
Pull them up to their feet - no one else should be victimized.

I saw the light,
I made it shine,
and I wonder if you feel anything at all.
Track Name: Mala Mente - La Pelea
black snake

kill the black snake

poison
in
our
waters
in our mother
spilling our blood

abuse of all power
such a shame

la pelea continuará

abuse of all
such a shame

we will protect the land
hands off
the ancestors will be waiting

hunt
you
down
like the "civilized" animal u are

if we ever March
it'll be over the colonizers sickening face
when we strike
it will be in the dark
with a six inch blade


500 YEARS OF THIS SHIT

indigenous people are the
most
forgotten
most neglected

Don't water down our history
not everything is yours
to take to grab
entitled scum
fuck your manifest destiny ways

you will not take the last of what is ours to tend
the people are resilient

the truth is in our history

¡ya basta!
Track Name: Relevant Anger - Retaliate
bombs strike again
millions still die
scapegoats are us
we pay the cost


This slaughter wouldn't happen if you left them alone
instead you keep giving them more broken homes
your death stars and stripes is what made them attack
As well as your freedom and this patriot act

bombs strike again
millions still die
scapegoats are us
we pay the cost

You want my kind to leave this country
So you'll allow your kills and hate speech

bombs strike again
millions still die
scapegoats are us
we pay the cost
you want us all dead to the ground
Track Name: Mala Racha - Hora de Pagar
¿Quién te crees que eres con tan perra actitud?
Quieres que te trate con respeto mientras tú
Me tratas como mierda por que somos diferentes
Por eso te la pasas discriminando a mí gente
Estamos cansados del racismo y agresion
Te sientes superior
Solo eres un puto ratón
Siempre maltratando a mis hermanas y hermanos
Solo queda hacer justicia con mis propias manos

Aunque intentes salir de esta te lo juro no podrás
Nos cansamos de aguantar y es tu hora de pagar
Track Name: Maladjusted - Nobody, No One
How could you approach me
Look into my weathered eyes
Tell me you are an ally
Then break me down
Took my fucking voice
Left me empty bodied
Took my fucking choice
I was just a place to cum
I'm taking it back
I'm taking it back
Track Name: Lowest Priority - Speak Now
When will you see?
the consequences of the actions we never take
turning your cheek to violence that happens everyday
blood shed in the streets, now who's to fucking blame?

I want to know and fucking make a change!
MAKE A CHANGE

Gripped in a chokehold, help up tight
enough is enough, join the fight!
Gripped in a chokehold, help up tight
a united vision that we can ignite!

Face the facts, it's reality
make a choice in society

Speak out now!

Now is the time!
Track Name: NoxThanks - University Ave.
It's not your body
It's not your business
Keep your goddamn opinions to your fucking self

It's not a compliment
It's just harassment
Walking in public shouldn't carry a price

Every human being has a right to feel safe
No keys between her knuckles and no carrying mace

You tell her to smile
To face your abuse
She doesn't owe you shit
You've got no fucking excuse

And If she's not having
Any of your shit
You call a her bitch
For standing up for herself

It's not about your mother
It's not about your sister
It's having respect for people other than you

Time and time again
I've heard your shit
I've had it with you
And I'm not holding my tongue

If intimidation
And being a creepy fuck are your way of talking to woman
Then I bet they could do without a catch like you

I'm not a big man
And I'm not quick to fight
But if I hear you cat calling tonight

There's gonna be a price.
Track Name: TraumaXQueen - Test Me
A friend or a fucking foe?
The consent was in her clothes
If she's asleep she'll never know
You can deny and refuse
But you can't hide the truth

No means fucking no
Your lack of self control
Ain't an excuse yet you choose
To take the trust that I used to know

If you thought for a single second
That I would give myself to you
You've got it twisted,
Deliberately misconstrued

Can't fuck with you

A plague to the world
A fucking waste is your existence
To fake consent of a girl
Disguised as a friend but a snake in the end

Do you know what it's like when the world is out to get you?
Labeled by a thief for the rest to come and test you
Guarded by your friends like a hornet in the nest
You're a fucking rapist
That's a life you chose to live
Track Name: Amygdala - Semillas
They tried to bury us, they didnt know we were seeds!
They tried to silence us
but you cant silence a mind that's free!

assimilate, procreate,
appropriate to a system that
doesn't work for the marginalized.

the working class families
the broken home
children that roam
the barrios that will keep them from growing
WE LEARN TO HATE OURSELVES, THIS KEEPS US FROM GROWING

one day they will grow and they will breathe in the stench that pollutes our air. Look around the gentrification that takes place and realize that this land, this plan wasn't for our people. They tried to whitewash our identities.
