about

Recorded at Guerrilla Euphonics, Oakland, CA, February 1995, with Myles Boisen engineer.
In December 1994 I went to Chiapas during the Zapatistas' relampago that re-oocupied 58 of the Estateo Chiapas' Municipios. People in San Cristobal and in the countryside touched and impressed me. Lyrics and melody came to me and early in 1995 Myles Boisen and I put together this song.

lyrics

"Chiapas Is Everywhere"

Rich 'a go Open Doors
Always knock down the poor
Discos, Bonds off Satellites
Patterns like butterflies
Rise from our outer lights
Respect the old, respect the earth

Everything comes from somewhere
Everything comes from somewhere
Go round and round and round and round
Round and round and round and round
They're coming for you They're coming for you
They'll take you right through They're coming for you
The people from the hills goin' to make it through
The people from the hills goin' to make it through
They're coming for you They're coming for you
The little people from the hills goin' to take you through
The little people from the hills goin' to take you too

Chiapas is everywhere Chiapas is everywhere

Chiapas is everywhere Chiapas is everywhere
The Mayan is everywhere.
