about

Loosely based on the book "Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent" (in Spanish Las venas abiertas de América Latina) written by Uruguayan journalist Eduardo Galeano in 1971.

lyrics

I want to open up your veins
I want to watch your blood pour out
I want to hear you scream in pain
I want to hear you hit the ground

You have something I really want
But it's been part of your whole life
Cultural synthesis only lasts
As long as I have benefits

I know what you're goin' through
But there's nothing that you can do
Left evidence will not support your case
Rest assure my life's improved
While yours old friend must start anew
The trend in history will always last

When I secure the upper hand
That's when your system will collapse
Rendered helpless when I attach
Declared hostile when you fight back

I know what you're goin' through
But there's nothing that you can do
Left evidence will not support your case
Rest assure my life's improved
While yours old friend must start anew
The trend in history will always last
