"Back To The Primitive" as written by and Massimiliano A. Cavalera....
Un, dois, trêis, quatro,
Back to the primitive
Fuck all your politics
We got our life to live
The way we want to be

Back to the primitive
Fuck all your politics
"Who feels it, knows it"
(Bob Marley)
And God will guide me

Back to the primitive
Fuck all your bullshit
We're back to set it free
Confronting the negative

Back to the primitive
Fuck all you wannabes
You don't mean shit to me
Let it bleed

(tribal)
Primitive
Primitive
Primitive
Primitive

Back to the primitive
Fuck all your politics
We got our life to live
The way we want to be

Back to the primitive
Fuck all your politics
How it used to be
Check your reality

Back to the primitive
Fuck all your politics
Fuck all you wannabes
Argh!

Back to the primitive
Fuck all your politics
Forever we will be
What we want to be

(tribal)
Primitive
Primitive
Primitive
Primitive

(tribal)
Primitive
Primitive
Primitive
Primitive

(tribal)
Primitive
Primitive
Primitive
Primitive

    General Commentits about rejecting all the false pretension and bs that seems so prevalent in everyday life and instead following your (primitive) instincts and being yourself.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about the government, its saying how they want more freedom to be who they want to be.

    "Back to the primitive
    Fuck all your politics
    We got our life to live
    The way we want to be"

    They are saying we dont need your politics to tell us how to live our life. Its out life lets us live it how we want to.

    "Back to the primitive
    Fuck all your bullshit
    We're back to set it free
    Confronting the negative"

    "Confronting the negative" confronting the corrupt and negative aspect on and in government and how they control our everyday decisions and lives sometimes.

    "Forever we will be
    What we want to be"

    we will always be what we want to be, not what you tell us what we have to be.
