[2012]
Una canzone realizzata da Miles Solay e soci, con l’apporto di Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine), Residente (Calle 13) e Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), all’indomani del parere positivo della Corte Suprema sulla durissima legge anti-immigrazione varata dallo Stato dell’Arizona nel 2010, un provvedimento che aveva suscitato fortissime proteste in tutti gli USA per via degli enormi poteri riconosciuti alla polizia nella repressione dell’immigrazione illegale.

Todos somos ilegales / We Are All Illegals
[Miles Solay]
I dream of fire but I sleep so cold
I raise the red flag on The Alamo
I want to show you how our lives unfold
Deep inside underneath it all
When you eat that salad and put on your shoes
Stare at that screen we’re looking out at you
The people who created, modern-day enslavement
“The greatest country!” Its a nation of sadists!
The babies who are buried before they can run
The children whose mothers have never known fun
The daughters whose bodies are sold for crumbs
Risk life and limb, its a planet of slums

[Chorus]
Todos somos ilegales, todos somos ilegales
The defiant ones, our time has come
Todos somos ilegales
Fighting for a new way and a new day
Todos somos ilegales

[Miles Solay]
I walk the desert in the dead of night
I crawl through sewers, no clean water in sight
I cross the river to the other side
The American land of parasites
I’m that secret, that dirty little feature
The bones in the closet, lies told by teachers
The food, the clothes, the land, the phones
The buildings where your computers grow
See, that border ain’t sacred or chosen
The land we stand on, every inch of it stolen
How obscene that there’s people illegal
Vilified survival, the journey is lethal

[Chorus]
Todos somos ilegales, todos somos ilegales
The defiant ones, our time has come
Todos somos ilegales
Fighting for a new way and a new day
Todos somos ilegales

[Residente (Calle 13)]
No necesito documentos
Mirame a los ojos
Para que leas mi acento
Prohibido como la droga
Ilegal como un nazi
En una sinagoga

Contra indicado
Clandestino
Lo identificable
Lo contamino
Más de siesciento millones de persona
Gritando luz verde
Pa invadir Arizona

No necesito diplomas
Lo que aprendi
Lo vivi y lo almaceno en mis neuronas
Las experiencias
Son mis talleres
La vida es un estudio
Desde que se nace
Hasta que se muere

Asi cruce pal’ norte
Buscando buena vida
Componente vacio
De materia consumida

Dejé a mi abuela
Sola pa’ besarle el culo a Ronald McDonald
y tomar coca cola

[Chorus]
Todos somos ilegales, todos somos ilegales
The defiant ones, our time has come
Todos somos ilegales
Fighting for a new way and a new day
Todos somos ilegales
We are all illegal, we are illegal
