La Noche Oskura or "The Dark Night" was created in the summer of 2008 in Sacramento, CA. They began playing the sounds of Ska, Reggae, and Rock in a hot garage, which would always have to change locations due to the POPO and noise complaints. Since 2008, LNO has been coming out the City Of Trees with a new sound, a new movement and new hope. La Noche Oskura can represent the long dark night which one struggles in the desert to pursue the "American Dream" for a better life or it can simply represent a new beginning or the night before the better day. Our music is inspired by love, struggles one faces everyday and movements of resistance from all over the world that call for justice and peace.

Pensando En Ti


Son tus besos, tus caricias que no me dejan dormir.

Light Up



You light up my darkness, you are my sun.
When I am down girl, you are the only one.
So light up my darkness, cause your touch feels so right.
Hold me forever and hold on tight.
Excuse me girl, what is your name.
Although I just met you, I'm going insane. (insane, insane)
The essence of your body is just calling my name.
(calling my name)
Ohh girl, you’re a sweet one, truly a unique one.
(ohhh ohhh ohhh)
I want to sweep you off your feet and we can dance rocksteady, all night long.

Oh Honey



(I said oh honey, where ever you go I'll go too.
I said oh honey, my love grows and grows for you.
I said oh honey, don't deny what is true.
I said oh honey, I'll come through, I'll come through for you.)

Oh honey girl I've been knowing you for a while, 
you put the spark in my life which ignites my smile. 
You are the one that I long for, supreme love. 
Making memories with you is what I dream of, 
walking hand and hand, leaving footprints in the sand, 
going to shows of our favorite band, growing old with you is the plan. 
And until I come home to see the beauty of your presence, 
I'll be sitting, waiting, praying, the future becomes the present. 

(I said oh honey, where ever you go I'll go too.
I said oh honey, my love grows and grows for you.
I said oh honey, don't deny what is true.
I said oh honey, I'll come through, I'll come through for you.) 

No river, or no valley, or no mountain, or no beast, could keep me away from you.
I'll travel all the lands and travel all the seas, till I get to you.
I've got lint in my pocket but my heart is full of love,
take my hand and I'll give you riches from above.
Show you the world right through my eyes,
lying under the sun will just fly and fly away.

(I said oh honey, where ever you go I'll go too.
I said oh honey, my love grows and grows for you.
I said oh honey, don't deny what is true.
I said oh honey, I'll come through, and I’ll come through for you.)
			

Maiz



(Sangre indígena se levantara otra vez, sangre indígena se levantara otra vez.
Sangre indígena se levantara otra vez, sangre indígena se levantara otra vez!)

Esta tierra es de todos, todos, todos, para que pelear,
esta tierra es de todos, todos, todos, para que pelear.
Si podemos vivir juntos sin violencia, para que segregar,
si podemos vivir juntos sin violencia, para que segregar.
No, no, no, no es asi.

Zapatistas a la calle, calle, calle, 
vamos a marchar, (vamos a marchar).
Zapatistas a la calle, calle, calle, 
vamos a marchar, (vamos a marchar).
Para que nos oiga el de adentro,
para el cambio lugar, (el cambio lugar)
para que nos oiga el de adentro,
para el cambio lugar, (oh yeah yeah, si, si, si.)

(Sangre indígena se levantara otra vez, sangre indígena se levantara otra vez.
Sangre indígena se levantara otra vez, sangre indígena se levantara otra vez!)

			

Dreaming



Dream on, dreaming. Dream on, dreaming. 
Dream on, dreaming. (yeah)
Dream on, dreaming. Dream on, dreaming. 
Dream on, dreaming. (yeah)
I said I dream, and I dream, and I dream, and I dream.
I said I dream, and I dream, and I dream, and I dream.

So can you hear it, so can you feel it?
The time is now and I'm back to steal it (yeah).
Land and air and water always should be free, 
but the government, they try to own every fucking thing.
Stop! You've done it all before.
History repeats itself, the books they try to own.
I'm from the city of the king of kings,
where rebellion it just grows, like trees underneath a beam.
With thoughts about tomorrow, we got to save ourselves,
because strength is in unity and not to fight ourselves. 
Strength is in unity (oh yeah) and not to fight ourselves (no).

Brother get up off your knees, 
you're worth more than demand can meet (oh yeah).
Oh trust me, oh trust me, oh trust me (yeah, yeah).
We go from rags to riches and forget about the ones, 
who can barely eat, the ones who can barely eat, 
the ones who can barely eat (Seen).
Evil society trys to change the way I and I think,
but never they will conquer my mind, 
cause I can see right through their eyes.
All the lies they hide through the video screen, 
but don't give up cause the movement is on its way.
Enough is enough, so ya basta! 
Never put your fist down, keep fighting till the end. 
Idle no more, idle no more, idle no more.

			

POPO



Pinche popo, pinche migra, pinche misma porquería.
Ya me canse de tu injusticia, ya me devaste de tus intensiones negativas.
Óyeme bien que nomas te digo, una sola vez y no me repito.
Largense ya pinches puerquitos, déjenme en paz o les rompo el hocico.
Pinche popo, pinche migra, pinche misma porquería.
Pinche popo, pinche migra, pinche misma porquería.

Don't enlist continue to resist,
don't enlist continue to resist,
don't enlist continue to resist,
don't enlist continue to resist.

Pinche popo y pinche migra, pinche misma porquería.
Ya me canse de tu injusticia, ya me devaste de tus intensiones negativas.
Óyeme bien que nomas te digo, una sola vez y no me repito.
Larganse ya pinches puerquitos, larganse ya o les romperé el hocico.
Pinche popo, pinche migra, pinche misma porquería.
Pinche popo, pinche migra, pinche misma porquería.

Corruption, destruction is all you do, to protect and serve that's not what you do.
Corruption, destruction is all you do, to protect and serve that's not what you do.
So I ask, to resist and resist and resist and resist, put a fist in the air,
to resist and resist and resist and resist, put a fist in the air,
resist and resist and resist and resist, put a fucking fist in the air,
resist and resist, put a fucking fist in the air.

Pinche popo, pinche migra, pinche misma porquería.
Ya me canse de tu injusticia, ya me devaste de tus intensiones negativas.
Óyeme bien que nomas te digo, una sola vez y no me repito.
Largense ya pinches puerquitos, déjenme en paz o les rompo el hocico.
Pinche popo, pinche migra, pinche misma porquería.
Pinche popo, pinche migra, pinche misma porquería.

			

Noche Oskura



Todas las noches, las noches que te vi,
tenia en mi mente lo que iva suceder.
A pesar de tu maldad, a pesar de tu amor,
no quiero que te olvides de lo que paso. (x4)

No quiero que te olvides de lo que tuvimos tu y yo.
Tuvimos tu y yo, tuvimos tu y yo, tuvimos tu y yo, 
tuvimos tu y yo, tuvimos tu y yo, tuvimos tu y yo,
tuvimos tu y yo, tuvimos tu y yo.

So where my rastas at, where my rastas at,
(Skat).
Where my rastas at, where my rastas at,
(Skat).

No quiero que te olvides de lo que tuvimos tu y yo. 
Tuvimos tu y yo, tuvimos tu y yo, tuvimos tu y yo, 
 tuvimos tu y yo,  tuvimos tu y yo,  tuvimos tu y yo,
 tuvimos tu y yo,  tuvimos tu y yo!
