You are not welcome here
You are not wanted here
This land is my land
and my land only
since the day I stole it
from your people
The mass murdering and cultural dismantling of your people
Your people
are not welcome here

I have tried to explain to him
I am from here
Es la tierra donde nacĂ­
I am more American than he’ll ever be
despite the ethnicity of my family.
This land is mine
The origin of where my people derived
And still he shouts
in the name of God
Leave

I’m tired
Y que pobre es mi historia
I search for a fire
but the torch has been extinguished
Leave
he says
You are not welcome here
You are not wanted here
