"Tribe" as written by and Massimiliano A. Cavalera....
Zumbi e o senhor das guerras
Zumbi e o senhor das demandas
Quando zumbi chega
E zumbi quem manda (crenca popular)

Your tribe, our tribe
Your life, our life
Your tribe, our tribe
Your life, our life
Your tribe, our tribe
Your life, our life
Your god, our god
Your tribe, our tribe


Your tribe, our tribe
Your god, our god
Your tribe, our tribe
Your tribe, my tribe

Hear the drums, they come from the sea
Bring the tribal spirit on me
Cause my pride and my roots I believe
No, this tribe you can't take it from me

Apalai apiaca arara botocudo
Goitaka guarany yamamadi ypixuna
Maori aboriginal zulu banshee
Mohican masai hopi panga
Omai asaro xingu buli
Guaikuru tukano tupinamba karo

    General CommentI agree this is one of soulflys best. Its obviously about tribes and dedication to tribal culture and i'm not sure but i think soulfly may have some connection with that sort of thing. (The drum at the start of this song is awesome!!)

    The last bit, from what i've gathered is all the different tribes from all over the world. Aboriginal are the tribe from my great country (Australia!!), Maoris are native to New Zealand, Zulu are from somewhere in Africa and they have a whole other song dedicated to the Mohicans (see L.O.T.M). I dont know any of the other ones. Maybe you do?

    General CommentIs a battle cry of the tribes that are threatened from the west. They just want to live their lifes as they wish, to worship their gods without restrictions. But the west wants to consume this tribes and bring them to the "civilized" world. For centuries was forbiden for many tribes to worship their gods or even in some cases even speak their language. Now the world had changed and we don't think about any tribe that is uncivilized, we care about their ways and we want to protect them but the western presure is continued.
