"Quilombo" as written by and Massimiliano A. Cavalera....
This is a true story of a slaveman
Who fled his people from the white man
So I'll say that he showed me the way
To be brave, brave, don't be afraid
*Zumbi* his name, *Quilombo* his place
Our root you can never erase
*Zumbi* his name, *Quilombo* his place
Our root you can never erase

Thirty thousand Zumbi refugees
Fight the right, the right to be free
Rape the city, the masters of greed
Follow the warrior, the warrior Zumbi
No more no more no more slavery
No more no more no more misery
No more no more no more suffering

Zumbi Zumbi
Blow them away

Here we come, here we come slave drums
Here we come, here we come Quilombo
Time for war in tha land of the sun
I know God will not leave us alone
I know God will never leave us alone

Zumbi Zumbi
Got to be free

Quilombo Quilombo
