Song Of The Day: Must Be Undone Ft. Lia Rose, Son Of Nun And Tom Morello

The deep beat lingers as Lia Rose’s soothing voice starts the collaboration that is the new single from Firebrand Records, ‘Must Be Undone’. Lia’s partners in crime are protest rapper Son of Nun and Firebrand Records co-founder Tom Morello.

Lia writes on her Facebook page that the collaboration was inspired by this quote by Nelson Mandela:

“Poverty is not an accident. Like slavery and apartheid, it is man made and can be removed by the actions of human beings.”

“What’s been done/Can and must be undone/Enough is enough” Lia sings before Son of Nun enters the project with all guns blazing:

“Capitalism is lead paint and Ritalin
A new jail, high blood pressure and insulin
It’s why they can’t drink the water in Flint, Michigan
And why so many plead guilty when they’re innocent
It’s using the oven to keep your house warm
Cuz minimum wage won’t keep the lights on
It’s dying from diseases that are treatable
While drug company profits are unbelievable
It’s Coke killing union organizers
It’s darker nations in debt to colonizers
It’s saying climate change is still debatable
While the military knows it’s inescapable
It’s the schools in the hood with no heat
Cuz tax-free arenas ain’t taking a backseat
Capitalism is a bonus for the CEO
Closing plants here to open them in Mexico”

Mr. Tom Morello finally steps in with his guitar to end the music video with an emotional solo that is complemented perfectly with animation work by Jonny Lawrence.
