about

"An agressive song about political and police excesses. About violence and protests that turned themselves into riots around the world in 2013. Reflection about corruption and media manipulation"

lyrics

Begun - Māyā

The world is on the streets
Pawns are waking up but got nowhere to go
How long you think it's gonna last
When dialogues turn into riot control

I got my reason and you got your gun
Isn't enough to have some fun?
This is the order of our progress
When you fight they make you run

We have kept calm for way too long
Behind the curtains the show goes on
An OC gas police makes vinegar people feel at home
The carnival has just begun

Corruption is in our veins
We learn to love our chains
And to believe our liars

They know how to make their scene
But now we're gasoline waiting for the fire

You got your reason and I got my gun
Isn't enough to have some fun?
It's not about your twenty cent lies
I got a million allies
Your argument makes me cry

We have kept calm for way too long
Behind the curtains the show goes on
An OC gas police makes vinegar people feel at home
The carnival has just begun

Ideas are bombs in the right hands
Right becomes wrong through the right lens
The real big brother and his globed-eye show
Our shouting is muffled by their cheering for the goal

You are not representing me
You are not protecting me
I don't care what they teach it's true
I'll show you who's to be afraid of who

We have kept calm for way too long
Behind the curtains the show goes on
An OC gas police makes vinegar people feel at home
The carnival has just begun

Go home mother fuckers!
I am the state!"
