Nathaly Ortiz - Utopia: Sinner to Saint

  1. 1. “This is the point from which I could never return And if I back down now then for- ever I burn This is the point from which I could never retreat Cause If I turn back now there can never be peace This is the point from which I will die and succeed Living the struggle, I know I’m alive when I bleed From now on it can never be the same as before Cause the place I’m from doesn’t exist anymore.” - Immortal Technique “But that will never be me, cause I am leavin’ the past Like an abused wife with the kids, leavin’ your ass Like a drug addict clean and sober, leavin’ the stash Unbreakable Technique leavin’ the plane crash I’m out with the black box and I refuse to return I spit reality, instead of what you usually learn and I refuse to be concerned with condescending advice Sinner to Saint. cause I am the only motherfucker that could change my life.” - Immortal Technique by nathaly l ortiz
  2. 2. “Internally bleeding, cold blooded Stripped of emotion, I go through the motions, but there’s no Life in my eyes, it’s like I’m hooked up to a respirator Waiting to die, hooked up to the fucking chair Waiting to fry, sooth an electrocution currently used In my execution, producing thoughts at the speed of light Burning confusion, I’m loosing my sight, breathing is tight The evening is white, I made my peace with the Lord and now I Stand on his right..” - Immortal Technique “As days go by my world gets colder I’m older, experience got my heart bolder Hold up, better days ahead that’s what I hope for There’s beauty in the eyes of the beholder I told ya.” - Cyne
  3. 3. “Dreams are, the building blocks of my heart and my soul The meeting unfolds, hoping that my story is told Driftin, with eyes closed but seeing the deeper meaning Of what I want in life, precisely when I’m dreaming It’s so misleading, but yet I gotta follow through Holdin true to myself in rhythm is what I wanna do Searchin, through Bible verses, books in the Koran Lookin for the meaning of life and the essence of all.” - Cyne “So I’m drifting away like a feather in air letting my soul take me away from the hurt and dispair So I’m keeping the vertical forever elevator Riding the escalator to the something that’s greater.” - Nujabes
