about

La Ceja is located on the busy interface between the two cities of La Paz and El Alto, Bolivia. Inside this area, reminding / reminiscent in its shape of an inverted eyebrow (span. Ceja), criminal gangs control the streets and even cooperate with the ubiquitous but corrupt local police. In the middle of this social hotspot, thousands of homeless children have to face circumstances round prostitution, human trafficking, the whole spiral of violence in this society every day. The most of them even won't reach adolecence.
This song is dedicated to all nameless people living and dying on the streets.

lyrics

LA CEJA

SOCIETY IGNORES THIS SEGMENT OF REALITY
APART FROM SANCTIMONIOUS MEMORIES
UNDER TAWDRY CHRISTMAS TREES

CHILDREN OF LA CEJA – THEY`RE NOT THE MALEFACTORS
CHILDREN OF LA CEJA – THEY´RE PASSIVE REACTORS

THAT POLICE SETS FIRE TO MINORS
INHALING PAINT STRIPPER TO FORGET
OR TAKE THEM TO THE OUTSKIRTS - THEY WON´T EVER COME BACK

CHILDREN OF LA CEJA – THEY`RE NOT THE MALEFACTORS
CHILDREN OF LA CEJA – THEY´RE PASSIVE REACTORS

THERE´S NOTHING TO COMPROMISE IN STREET URCHIN´S LIFE
FOR THEM IT´S JUST ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE
THERE´S NO NEED FOR US TO TAKE THE CONSEQUENCE
FOR US IT´S ALL SHOW – NO SUBSTANCE!
