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
