Slow Coup

New Song Released 4/19/2020

  

What do we do whey they bring us down?

What do we do when they bring us down?

We make slow grooves. We make slow grooves.

Oh say can see where democracy’s gone?

Stolen by the hands of the 51.

It’s a slow coup. It’s a slow coup. 

Seja Bolsonaro or 45

Fascismo continua muito much alive.

O povo oprimido já tá sabendo dessa história.

Same ish different day nessa longa história. 

Lava Jato, Petrobras, or even Stupid Watergate

O Povo exigindo que á justiça can’t wait.

O que que você vai fazer quando cai democracia?

Fique lá na praia tomando cervejinha?

That’s the sound of the shredding of the constitution

Tell me is time for a new solution?

It’s a slow coup. It’s a slow coup. 

What do we do whey they bring us down?

What do we do when they bring us down?

We make slow grooves. It’s a slow coup.
