lyrics

Something's wrong with
This international zone
Maquila born of dirt
Give work and mechanical hum

Media freeze
At international zones
Maquila girl gets murdered
They know but nothing ever gets done

Victims unknown
A name will never come cheap
Too many faces gone
They are the ghosts of industry

Third world at work
On the factory line
What's good for theirs
Ain't good for mine
I heard you have to be rich to be right

KFZ
Watch the IMF crush the PNP
Kington's funky soul ain't enough
To get out of this cheat

I know someone's in the pocket
Behind the free trade market
Air for sale, projections fail
Just privatize and profit

Victims unknown
A name will never come cheap
You're gonna face this ghost
Like an American arm on a Mexican street

Third world at work
On the factory line
What's good for theirs
Ain't good for mine

I don't wanna be rich to be right
Don't wanna be cured to be white
Same blood but stirred this time

Country first before you eat
A global scheme is on repeat
It's for your health
If you never sleep
There's no waking up
