Maria

Lyrics

She smashed the radio
with the board of education
turn up the static left of
the state of the nation

Turn up the flame
step on the gas
burning the flag at half mast
she's a rebel's forgotten son
an export of the revolution

She is the first voice
of the last ones in the line
she'll drag the lake
to keep the vendetta alive

Bring in the head of the government
the dog ate the document
somebody shot the President
and noone knows where Maria went?

Maria,
Maria,
Maria, where did you go?...

Be careful what your offering
your breath lacks the convicion
drawing the line in the dirt
because the last decision.. is no!
