They Came for the Gold

They came for the gold that's in our blood. 

Tried to purge it from within.

All that was was massacre.

They came for our souls.

Recognize the sin. 

Made promises they couldn't keep

Hard labor benefits from which they reap 

They came for the gold in our blood

And tried to leave us with mud

But from the earth and from the soil

From the water we rise

We are the gold they could not purge
