Sepultura - Roots Bloody Roots

Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody

I believe in our fate
We don't need to fake
It's all we wanna be
Watch me freak

I say we're growing every day
Getting stronger in every way
I'll take you to a place where we shall find our
Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots
Roots bloody roots
Rain bring me the strength to get to another day
And all I want to see
Set us free
Why can't you see?
Can't you feel this is real?

I pray we don't need to change our ways to be saved
That all we wanna be
Watch us freak
