about

This song is a critique of the prison industrial complex and its most recent expansion into the business of incarcerating immigrants. Probably the most experimental track on the album, this song is a genre-bending assembly of raw punk and Dominican rhythms such as Palo and Gaga.

lyrics

Cannibalistic by nature,
There’s no food that can satisfy
The hunger, the greed;
It’s unquenchable.

Vicious appetite... for profit
There’s no food that can satisfy,
And the greed
Is unquenchable.

¿Quién promueve la xenofobia?
¿Quién lucra del odio racial?
El infierno, prisión para inmigrantes...
Fresh blood keeps feeding the complex.

Prisons get filled with innocent lives
South at the border
They’re building a wall
For Profit!
For Profit!
For Profit.

And the greed is unquenchable.

¿Quién promueve la xenofobia?
¿Quién lucra del odio racial?
El infierno, prisión para inmigrantes...
Fresh blood keeps feeding the complex.

South at the border
They’re building a wall
For Profit!
For Profit!
For Profit.

Immigrant blood more fuel to feed the complex.
