Rage Against The Machine – Maria lyrics

Tha sun ablaze as marias foot
Touches the surface of sand
On northern land
As human contraband
Some rico from jalisco
Passed her name to tha boss
She stuffed ten to a truckbed
She clutches her cross
Here come tha exhaust
And it rips through her lungs
She's off fast to tha pasture
Like cattle shell cross
Degree 106
Sweat and vomit are thrown
And she prays and suffocates
Upon the memories of home
Of yanqui guns for blood debts on the loans
Of smoldering fields, rape, rubble and bones
Of graves hidden trapped up in visions of war
Of nothing, no one, nobody, no more

These are her mountains and skies and she radiates
And through historys rivers of blood she regenerates
And like tha sun disappears only to reappear
She's eternally here
Her time is nearnever conquered but here

To tear away at the mask

And now she got a quota
Tha needle and thread crucifixion
Sold and shipped across tha new line
Of mason dixon
Rippin through denim
Tha point an inch from her vein
Tha foreman approach
His steps now pound in her brain
His presence it terrifies
And eclipses her days
No minutes to rest
No moments to pray
And with a whisper
He whips her
Soul changed to his will
My job is to kill if you forget to take your pill
Her arm jerks
Tha sisters gather round her and scream
As if in a dream
Eyes on the crimson stream
Numb as her wrists spit shots of blood to tha floor
I am nothing, no one, nobody, no more

These are her mountains and skies and she radiates and through historys rivers of blood she regenerates
And like tha sun disappears only to reappear
Maria
She's eternally here
Her time is near
Never conquered but here

Uh
To tear away at the mask
Away at the mask
To tear away at the mask
Huh

Maria (whispered)

No minute to rest
No moment to pray
No minutes to rest
No moments to pray
No minutes to rest
It eclipses her days
Just a moment to pray

To tear away at the mask, huh
Away at the mask
To tear away at the mask, huuh
To tear away at the mask

    Kether flows like a circuit through the foot of maria, as the starlights power blinds, and as one foot is in water, the other on land- but sand is the intermediate, revealing that the action is a moment of realization and judgement- prophesized and executed in perfect time. Nonconformity and opposition is contraband, 10 is completion of self, and the exhaust is the smoke flaring from what change will ensue, her smokey breath results from the earth's tortured state, and reflects imbalance and restoration. The souls of animals catalyze a burning that maria will instill on humanity- symbolizing sacrifice like a christian mumbled dream. The sad truths of the hell of the earth paralyzes cognition "of nothing, no one, nobody, no more. "
    Maria calculates the deeds of man, remembering every ounce of bloodshed, regenrating with fire, and her balance, like the sun reappearing is a constant - yet not cyclical, for the time of now has never occured before but has been awaited.
