we never saw you coming
we never saw you there
no explanations
or things to prepare

we don't believe in myths
or fairy tales
there were no symbols
or signs to beware

but you, you came at night
you, all dressed in light
offering us safety
offering us free
when you were the ones
who wanted to invade me

you wear no faces
you bear burning flames
imperial take over
try to take our name
& we stand to defend
where are feet are placed
we refuse
eradication of race

but you, you have no fear
you think everyone
will lay down here
rumbling machine
thunder aloud
pistols are drawn
firing at crowds


you never saw us coming
you never saw us there
we're not invisible
we claim our rights to bare
we believe in defending
our right to exist
there were no symbols
or signs to resist

& we, we fought at night
we, defend our rights
defending our safety
defending our free
defending ourselves from the ones
who wanted to invade me



from When The City Sleeps (Pt. 1), released August 8, 2016
