New music: “BRICS from below”

[intro]

[verse one]

Capital B to the R to the I C S / 5 letters suggest who writes the cheques / but never checks the rights / so the people’s lives are economically “bloc”ed by these Capital lies / Time to learn about these letters that we capitalize / Keep the people lowest level while they rapidly rise / Can’t control the police / the education ship sank / so how you think you’re gonna run a BRICS bank? / The people we all know where the capital lies / Daveyton / Ficksburg / where the blood still dries / Maite tells us not to criticize coz they’re bringing us a “boom” like industrialize / but we don’t want more construction / corruption and drama / eyes still wet from the tears of Marikana / ‘s just another power bloc / fokkol change / 99% playing in a 1% game

[chorus]

If they are guilty they must pay…If they are guilty…If they are guilty they must pay…they…must…pay!

Building blocks and blocs that don’t build

Bricks that build and BRICS that never will

Building blocks and blocs that don’t build

Bricks that build and BRICS that never will

[second verse]

They wanna caste new bricks while bricks are being cast / flown from the fists of the lowest class / They wanna fly the flag / should be flown at half mast / remembering the people that have passed / The freedom can’t last can’t breath we gasp in suffocation / choke in the smoke from the self-immolation / You can bet in Tibet the people wonder how / the Dalai Lama we reject but welcome Hu Jintao / Democratic means I’m freely disputing / the faith that we put in Putin / Freedom of Speech what? / I don’t buy it / I’ve got two words for you Vladimir: Pussy Riot / We don’t need anymore / that’s enough right there to shoot a flare in the air for the people everywhere to prepare / for a fresh attack / Whip crack on the bare back / See the boss building up the share stack / with blue chips to fit whips with blue lights to cruise with / sitting in position / top deck of the cruise ship / Who built the ICC ?/ Who gets to use it? / That’s a big ass ego / let me bruise it: BRAZIL – RUSSIA – INDIA – CHINA / Africa’s open like bullet holes in miners / but hold up! Something you should know: / You dropping BRICS from above?/ We’re throwing BRICS from below…

[chorus]

If they are guilty they must pay…If they are guilty…If they are guilty they must pay…they…must…pay!

Building blocks and blocs that don’t build

Bricks that build and BRICS that never will

Building blocks and blocs that don’t build

Bricks that build and BRICS that never will

[outro]

It goes 1 2 3 / kick a rhyme to keep the people free / they’re bringing BRICS but they’re not building / makes you wonder where the money go / where oh?

It goes 1 2 3 / peace freedom equality / that’s the justice policy / When we building from below we grow
