"Naxalite" as written by Aniruddha Das, John Pandit, Steven Savale, Sanjay Tailor and Saidullah Zaman....
Brothers and sisters of the soul unite
We are one indivisible and strong
They may try to break us but they dare not under estimate us
They know our memories are long
A mass of sleeping villages
That's how they're pitching it
At least that's what they try to pretend
But check out our history
So rich and revolutionary

A prophecy that we will rise again
Again and again until the land is ours
Again and again until we have taken the power
Again and again until the land is ours
Again and again until we have taken the power

Deep in the forest
High up in the mountains
To the future we will take an oath
Like springing tigers we encircle the cities
Our home is the undergrowth
Because I am just a naxalite warrior
Fighting for survival and equality
Police man beating up me, my brother and my father
My mother crying can't believe this reality

Again and again until the land is ours
Again and again until we have taken the power
Again and again until the land is ours
Again and again until we have taken the power

Jump into the future dub zone
Roots rockers

And we have taken the power
And the land is ours
And we have taken the power
And the land is ours
And we have taken the power
And the land is ours
And we have taken the power
And the land is ours

Because I am just a naxalite warrior
Fighting for survival and equality
Police man beating up me, my brother and my father
My mother crying can't believe this reality

Iron like a Lion from Zion
This one going all the youth, man and woman
original Master D upon the microphone stand
Cater for no skeptical man- me no give a damn
'cause me a naxalite warrior

    General CommentThis Song is about Naxalites who are pro communist ppl in India mainly in the state of west bengal and and bourdering neightbour bangladesh.When the vocalists says "They know our memories are long
    A mass of sleeping villages
    That's how they're pitching it
    At least that's what they try to pretend " he tlaks about the naxalites watching over villages and see if there is any problems which they use to theier advantage and turn them over to their side.They woudl watch over coz they were gurrila's u know gurrilla warfare?this song reminds me alot of ratm coz its like zach obssesion with the zapata movemnt

    General CommentThe Naxalites, also sometimes called the Naxals, is a loose term used to define groups waging a violent struggle on behalf of landless labourers and tribal people against landlords and others. The Naxalites say they are fighting oppression and exploitation to create a classless society. Their opponents say the Naxalites are terrorists oppressing people in the name of a class war. alot like the zapata movement in mexico

    General Commentsure, but the zapatistas are nonviolent, whereas the naxalites will actually attack and assassinate.

    General CommentI dont think Deeder and co. are endorsing Maoism, its being used as a metaphor for resistance ("Fighting for survival and equality"). Amazing lyrics.
