Kolateral

"Stand By"

[CALIX - HOOK]
Laban mga tambay! Lagpasan mga hamon ng buhay! (x4)

[BLKD - Verse 1]
Teka teka teka lang sir
Di naman sa pag ma-ma-ma-marunong
Pero makatwiran at makaturangan na ba
Ang simpleng pag tambay humantong sa pagkakulong?

Tambay nga diba? Walang ginagawa
Walang ginagawang masama
Konting kwentuhan, konting inuman
Pang raos manlang sa bangis ng lipunan

Sa dinami-dami ng mga kriminal
Ng mga may mga ginawa nang illegal
Kami pa talaga ang una ninyong sinala
Pwede na bang ebidensiya ang hinala?

Sa mga kaso, gawa-gawang atraso
Kitang-kita, quota-quota lang ang panggagago
Sa gan'tong kaayusan, walang panalo
Dumarami ang tambay kapag walang pagbabago

[CALIX - HOOK]
Laban mga tambay! Lagpasan mga hamon ng buhay! (x4)

[BLKD - Verse 2]
Aming barong-barong diba sobrang liit?
Kung doon mag-lalagi, sobrang sikip
Mga tropang gipit, sa labas pumipwesto
Pagka't mas sumasaya kapag pumipresko

Nasan na mga parke't mga silid aklatan?
Mga abot kayang tambayan ng taong bayan?
Nasan ang edukasyon para sa lahat?
Nasan ang mga trabahong nakakasapat?

Sa buhay anong patunay ng aming sungay?
Kahirapan ang problema, hindi lang basta kulay
Wala ngang ginagawa, diba literal?
Hulihin niyo mga tunay nang kriminal

[CALIX - BRIDGE]
(oh yeah)
Kami nanaman ang ginawang palusot ng gobyerno
Bakit ba palaging mahihirap ang nagiging biktima ninyo?
Imbis na tulungan niyo kami, dinakip at pinosasan
Sa loob ng selda binugbog sabay tanggi sa kamatayan

[WYP - BRIDGE]
Mga tambay kami pero bakit kami
Ang nagiging target ninyo? x2

[CALIX - HOOK to OUTRO]
Laban mga tambay! Lagpasan mga hamon ng buhay! (x4)

--------------ENGLISH TRANSLATION--------------

[CALIX - HOOK]
Fight back, all you tambay! Rise above the challenges of our lives

[BLKD - Verse 1]
Wait a, wait a second, officer
Not to be a know-know-know-it-all
But would you say it is logical and just
For a simple tambay to end up behind bars?

You call us tambays, right? We don’t do anything
We’re not doing anything wrong
We’re just hanging out here, talking and drinking
To scrape by despite our city’s cruelty

Out there, there are countless criminals
Countless people who have broken the law
Why are we the ones you’re rounding up to arrest?
Is your suspicion enough evidence against us?

Look at our cases, our made-up offenses
It’s obvious that you’re picking on us to reach your quotas
With this kind of system, no one wins
The tambay multiplies if society doesn’t progress

[CALIX - HOOK]
Fight back, all you tambay! Rise above the challenges of our lives

[BLKD - Verse 2]
Look at our shanty house, isn’t it tiny?
If we hang out in there, we wouldn’t be able to breathe
Look at my broke friends, settling down outside
Where it’s cooler and we feel the breeze

Where are the free public parks and libraries?
Where are the places where ordinary people can hang out?
Where is the education for all?
Where are the jobs with livable wages?

In this life, where is your proof of our evil?
Poverty is the problem, not the color of our skin
You call us tambay, and we literally don’t do anything
Why don’t you arrest the real criminals?

[CALIX - BRIDGE]
Once again, the government uses us as scapegoats
Why is it that your victims are always the poorest of us?
Instead of helping us, you arrest us and cuff our wrists
A tambay was beaten to death in prison and you denied responsibility

[WYP - BRIDGE]
Yes, we are tambay but why are you picking on us?

[CALIX - HOOK to OUTRO]
Fight back, all you tambay! Rise above the challenges of our lives
