Música: trilha sonora para tempos difíceis

Alex Rodríguez tomando uma dura
com seu "zoot suit", tornado "ilegal"
durante a segunda guerra.
Estátua de Cuauhtémoc
















People of the Sun
Rage Against the Machine


Yeah people come up

Yeah, we better turn tha bass up on this one
Check it,

since 1516 minds attacked and overseen
Now crawl amidst the ruins of this empty dream
Wit their borders and boots on top of us
Pullin' knobs on the floor of their toxic metropolis
But how you gonna get what you need ta get?
Tha gut eaters, blood drenched get offensive like Tet
Tha fifth sun sets get back reclaim
Tha spirit of Cuahtemoc alive and untamed
Now face tha funk now blastin' out ya speaker, on tha one Maya, Mexica
That vulture came ta try and steal ya name
But now you got a gun, yeah this is for the people of the sun

It's comin' back around again!
This is for the people of the sun!
It's comin' back around again! Uh!

Yeah, neva forget that tha wip snapped ya back
Ya spine cracked for tobacco, oh I'm the Marlboroman, uh
Our past blastin' on through the verses
Brigades of taxi cabs rollin' Broadway like hearses
Troops strippin' zoots, shots of red mist,
Sailors blood on tha deck, come sista resist
From tha era of terror check this photo lens,
Now tha city of angels does the ethnic cleanse
Uh, heads bobbin' to tha funk out ya speaker, on tha one Maya, Mexica
That vulture came to try and steal ya name
But now you found a gun, you're history, this is for the people of the sun

It's comin' back around again!
This is for the people of the sun!
It's comin' back around again! Yeah!

It's comin' back around again!
This is for the people of the sun!
It's comin' back around!
Of the sun


[Agradeço a uma aluna da pós aqui que, no fcbk dela, me lembrou do Rage Against the Machine, banda que faz uma trilha sonora apropriada para os tempos cabulosos em que vivemos. A banda é prova também de uma certa América Latina oculta aos olhos de quase todo mundo. Uma América Latina que fala e escreve em inglês também, e que existe debaixo do nariz de uma gringolândia em geral hostil a ela. Mas o que interessa aqui nos berros de Zack de la Rocha é que mais de 500 anos depois uma vida humana dentro de um corpo com a pele mais escura parece que ainda vale muito pouco quase nada nessas Américas.]
