Track Name: Bougie Ass White Girl
Bougie Ass White Girl
Who do you work for?
Excel sheet proficiency
Real estate, good credit score

Bougie Ass White Girl
Jogs the bridge called my back
She yells from 20 feet ahead
Brown girl, pick up the slack!

My latte, your latte
Tastes like democracy
Chai latte, soy latte
Tastes like democracy

Bougie Ass White Girl
Peace Corps to my homeland
Offers people bandaids
For the blisters on our hands

Bougie Ass White Girl
Will die in the revolution
In her luxury condo
Still denying gentrification

My latte, your latte
Bleeds like democracy
You ain't gettin your latte
Til we fight and we are free!
Track Name: Hands Off Our Balikbayan Box
Hands off
Hands off our
Hands off our balikbayan box!!

Inimpake ko na nga lahat
(i already packed all of it)
Ng dugo at luha't pawis ko
(all my blood, and tears, and sweat)
Sa isang katutak na kahon
(into a shit ton of boxes)
At basta basta bubuksan mo?!
(And you just tear them open?!)

Anong klase bang maltrato yan
(What kind of maltreatment is that)
Sa tawag mong bagong bayani!
(Towards the people you call modern heroes)
Lahat ng sakripisyo namin -
(All of our sacrifices)
Ay! Ikaw pala ang may ari!
(Oh! we didn't realize you owned it all!)

Hands off
Hands off our
Hands off our balikbayan box!

Busog ka sa remittance tax,
(You're full on remittance tax)
Kami ay gutom nagtatrabaho.
(While we work hungry)
Bilyung-bilyon ang pera mo,
(You already have billions of dollars)
Nagiipon ka pa sa aming sweldo!!
(Yet you still profit off our wages!)

Babagsakin itong systema.
(We're gonna break this system down)
Di mo kami basta matatabi.
(You won't be able to brush us aside)
Sige na maghanda ka ngayon
(You better get ready now)
Sa pwersa ng mga migrante!
(For the force of the migrant workers!)

Hands off
Hands off our
Hands off our balikbayan box!
Track Name: Ang Lupa Ang Dahilan (Because of the Land)
blood in the floorboards of our home
but we stand on mountains of gold
outright denial of war crimes
can’t silence lumad children’s rhymes

ang lupa
ang lupa
ang lupa ang dahilan

counterterror marks us dead
military troops paint our towns red
government watered down truth with lies
push seeds through soil, unearth, uprise!

ang lupa
ang lupa
ang lupa ang dahilan

bulldozers, machine guns
they threaten, and we run
gunshots, so vivid
evacuate, so livid

ancestors, they teach us
that our guns will not rust
our roots are forever
resist now or never!

ang lupa
ang lupa
ang lupa ang dahilan
Track Name: Manarchist, Brocialist
Manarchist, Brocialist
Fuck your autonomy.
When it’s an excuse
To manhandle me.

Manarchist, Brocialist
Fuck your liberalism
Token inclusivity
Book worship sexism.

Smash the patriarchy,
Transmisogyny,
hetero- and homo-normativity.
Smash it now!

Manarchist, Brocialist
Fuck horizontal
Mack-tivist pick up lines
Undesirable!

Manarchist, Brocialist
Fuck your stack
General meetings
When you won’t step back

Smash the patriarchy,
Transmisogyny,
hetero- and homo-normativity.
Smash it now!

Manarchist, Brocialist
Fuck your punk band
Groupie junkie
One night stands

Manarchist, Brocialist
Fuck your panel
Full of cis-dudes
Dressed in flannel

Smash the patriarchy,
Transmisogyny,
hetero- and homo-normativity.
Smash it now!
