Manifest

Sepultura

Friday, October 2nd, 1992
Chaos has descended in "Carandiru"
The biggest penitentiary complex in South America
Over a hundred inmates dead and
Hundreds injured on the massacre
The police arrived with helicopters
And over two hundred armed forces

They took the jail block
Called "Pavihão Nove"
And opened fire on the inmates
In a holocaust, method of
Annihilation, the government of the city
Of São Paulo cannot control
The brutality of its police

Holocaust, body piles
Confrontation, mutilation
Discipline, ignorance
Conflagration, torture

Over eighty percent of the inmates were
Not sentenced yet, the bodies were filled
With bullets and bites from the police dogs
The police try to hide the massacre saying
There were only eight deaths

The violence of Brazilian cops is very well
Known outside of Brazil, this kind of
Extermination is a method that they use to
Get rid of the over population in the jails
The violence of the cops left the whole
Pavilion destroyed after the rebellion
