There’s no peace in war
no truth in lies.
And oh the good shepherd
don’t wear a disguise.
There’s no freedom in arms
no good comes from evil.
But that’s no what they’ll
have you think, though.

The value of you is
in the deeds you do.
Your worth should be
more than your money.
Change don’t come
from nothing,
and good don’t from dumbing.
So why are there things
they can’t tell us?

The kingdom of heaven
is a woman, her name,
Mother Earth,
quenching in full
a man’s ravenous thirst.
The heavens will settle
and she’ll help us feel good.
If and when
we’re good to her.

There’s no happy little slaves
we’re all created equal.
So get off your high horse
‘fore it topples.
I know it’s not me
I’d always share my blessings
and two-fold when
love is hard to find.

Let it out, let it out.
The people who care, oh
they should beware.
And, oh, they don’t see
they only worry.
You are as you as can be.

A song always lifts
no greed ever gives.
So to what are we giving
them power.
There’s no love in fear,
no right in might.
So you know
the good shepherd don’t
wear a disguise.




Dont Need No Democrat

I don’t need no Democrat
to make my world run right.
They say one thing at a press hearing
then sell away the light
all for the sake
of your American style prosperity.

I don’t need no Democrat
to make my world run well
gimme something I never did see
a clear conscience on the house
yea that corporate money,
real funny gonna bankrupt ya’.

I don’t need no Democrat
to wipe my ass thoroughly
how do they know what it’s like
they don’t look like you or me
And have they ever
endeavored to wipe their own?

I don’t need no democrat
to make my garden grow
I got all the tools I need
some chicken shit and a hoe.
But they want to lease me,
increase me auto-grow 2000.

I don’t need no Democrat
to give my globe a spin.
Ship it out to India then
shoot it back again.
What they saying they creating
I ain’t buying it.

I don’t need no Democrat
turn the tide around
It’s a tale of faries, it’s temporary
till the elephant’s back in town.
Then he stomps all over you
and the donkey steps aside saying
“What can I do?”

I don’t need no Democrat
for my commander in chief.
Why don’t I just put a smile
on the two-head hungry beast?
Ain’t nothing different
he’ll still eat you while
you’re sleeping. So wake up!

But I ain’t against no democrats
not any kind or creed.
I only hate the ones that say
red or blue is the only scene.
What is this football
or mother-fucking government?!

So give me libertarian
independant or green
even Democrat or Republican
I’ll vote for who I please.
Just one little piece of criteria.
Every time I see it makes me learier.
I’ll throw my chips on the one who isn’t
Bought and sold.



01-Fascist Dictator

Some people suck up the right
and spit out wrong
all along this sacred land.
And there are some who are evil,
and some who do bad
but are good they just
don\’t understand.
And this is for you:

Chorus: Fascist dictator, you\’ll find out sooner or later
that you voted for a
Nazi fascist dictator.

Don\’t be fooled, he ain\’t no cool dude
the bright future he talks about
it don\’t include me or you.
He ain\’t your friend, you\’ll find out when you find the freedom he wants
is the freedom to brainwash
your children.


And how can he be, man
any kind of Christian
you know that Jesus the Christ
himself would condemn him for sure.
For the lies upon lies
and disguising his ties.
A rich man\’s money in heaven will
all turn to dirt.


But ain\’t no fear
of death over here
but I fear for the scared ones
when the going gets worser.
What would they claim
or sign with their name
when faced with the threat
of a death by slow,
slow torture?


You signed on the line and
you gave him the time.
You read in the news
now the Muslims are Jews.

But I guarantee you
he\’ll get his dues
all criminals will
no matter how white their collar.
Better think of something
or \’bout how you\’ll be jumpin\’
off his silver ship
when we all learned it\’s
made with slave dollars.


And what awaits at the end
you\’ll find my friend
and when you do maybe then
we can talk.
For what\’s the point of listin\’
if you\’re not gonna listen
oh this man has a plan
and he\’s keeping it hid from
the flock.
Yes, fascist dictator
just like any other
the end will justify the means
no matter the horror.
But he don\’t see nothing
he only takes orders
and then he lies, lies, lies
but that\’s all part of being a…


Yea the talk on the street
everybody you meet
they\’re off of their seats
yea they wanna IMPEACH
and you voted for the
nazi fascist dictator.
But ain\’t no on in the senate
got the balls to begin it
they\’re all a bunch of plastic-ass phoney american cheese heads.
And they voted for the nazi fascist dictator.
Yea they got velveeta brains and soda pop veins
and hamburger hearts now they\’re spreadin\’ to mars
where they\’re gonna make little Nazi fascist dictators.
You never looked at the past
now it\’s coming on fast
you\’re gonna have to choose
are you playing to loose?!
Cause you voted for a nazi fascist racist, classist globalist

I’ve seen the truth
I saw it on the tv, on the tv
Somebody discovered the truth
And they showed it on the tv
On the tv tonight
The camera, it just happened to be rolling
At that moment, at that moment
The camera shot the truth
And the camera don’t lie
It don’t lie to me

‘Cuz I’m just a guy
who likes to watch some tv in the evening
But all of a sudden the channel don’t change
The story’s the same
It’s so damn simple
I might as well be staring into space
While some rich guy keeps laughing in my face
I can’t find what I’m looking for
I can’t find what I’m looking for
That’s now what I’m looking for
What are you looking for?

Do you like watching colorful shapes
Float through the air like a video game
Do you like it when those same shapes
Shatter on the ground
And they don’t make a sound

Hey Mr. Commentator, Mr. Commentator
Tell me a story
I’ll regurgitate it later
Please don’t give too much information
That might just confuse me
And you don’t really want to confuse me
Do you
Then I might as too many questions
And you’d
Have to come up with an answer
That’s not
Necessarily written in your script
And you don’t want to seem like an dim wit
And anyway my opinion
Isn’t corporate




08 War Cry

I woke up this morning and I put on my shoes, I cut my hair and looked right in the mirror, and I looked right at myself and myself looked right back at me, I went into my kitchen and I sat down on my breakfast table and I had my breakfast. It was delicious. I walked out my front door and walked on the same street that I walked on for the last 15 years of my life. It was my street, my shoes, walking on my pavement. There was one thing that was different.


하늘을 우러러 보았을때 모든것이 하얗게 변했고
회색의 잿더미가 회오리로 돌아가고
태양은 사라지고 내 몸은 느껴지지 않고 더 이상 숨은 쉬지 않게 되고
똑같은 시간 똑같은 장소 똑같은 사람들 어디론지 사라졌고
세상이 반으로 갈라졌을때 이 느낌은 설명할수 없는 이 혼돈은 어떻게 해야하는지 어디로 가야하는지 누구에게 물어바야 하는지

The same birds, the same trees, everything was exactly the same. The same cars, the same neighborhood, the same neighbors, everybody said hello just like usual. Everything was the same, but then, something was really off, something was really really off. I asked myself, what is it, what is going on today that\’s different than every other day. Oh, my god, I know what it is. I read it in the paper, I saw it on TV, Oh, Shit, oh, shit, I know what it is.



01 – 1. Volver al futuro

It is a song inspired by Michelle Bachelet, current president of Chile. The narrator of the song, however, is situated in the future, the day of Bachelet’s funeral ceremony, year 2037. He looks back in time to some of the events in her life: before becoming president (her father was killed by the secret service of Pinochet and she herself was tortured after the military coup,) and after becoming president (when the right wing started a “fear and terror” campaign and started a Boycott against her, just like what happened in the early seventies with the previous socialist president democratically elected in Chile, Salvador Allende.)
It’s a song that protest against the Latin American privileged classes who start economic and politic domestic dirty wars in order to create the sensation of chaos, and thus, destroy any political movement that may put their privileges at risk.
In politics the same evil things happen from time to time, it is almost like I movie that we have seen before and plays over and over again. It is a song that suggests that History is circular.


Walking around the neighborhood
Near Central Station, pealing
From the belfry
The bell was pealing
For whom do you toll bell?
Has her heart been honored yet?
For whom does the cannon blow?
It was imprinted in paper
When you broke the law
Of the intelligence agent
Of the agent who sliced you
Now I remember when
They called the general boycott
You tottered with the weight
Of the key of power!
For whom do the children cry?
Has her heart been honored yet?
For whom does the cannon blow?
I look at time
You spoke for the lives
Of the mothers and the oppressed
That was hard labor
For whom do the children cry?
Has her heart been honored yet?
For whom does the cannon blow?
It was imprinted in paper
When you broke the law
Of the people
Of the people who sliced you



This is an original song by Vanessa Boyd and performed by Vanessa Boyd & Co., recorded in NYC 2007

You can dominate the world the way they dominate you with their laws and their guns and their Bibles in view, you can dominate your kids the way you dominate your wife, with your money and your dick and your righteous pride…
