Qué alegre y fresca la mañanita!  Me agarra el aire por la nariz:  los perros ladran, un chico grita  y una muchacha gorda y bonita,  junto a una piedra, muele maíz.  Un mozo trae por un sendero  sus herramientas y su morral:  otro con caites y sin sombrero  busca una vaca con su ternero  para ordeñarla junto al corral.  Sonriendo a veces a la muchacha,  que de la piedra pasa al fogón,  un sabanero de buena facha,  casi en cuclillas afila el hacha  sobre una orilla del mollejón.  Por las colinas la luz se pierde  bajo el cielo claro y sin fin;  ahí el ganado las hojas muerde,  y hay en los tallos del pasto verde,  escarabajos de oro y carmín.  Sonando un cuerno corvo y sonoro,  pasa un vaquero, y a plena luz  vienen las vacas y un blanco toro,  con unas manchas color de oro  por la barriga y en el testuz.  Y la patrona, bate que bate,  me regocija con la ilusión  de una gran taza de chocolate,  que ha de pasarme por el gaznate  con la tostada y el requesón.

These streets are like oceans Without you The august, wintry fall has brushed us up And I’m sure we’re through   I throw about my energy That I would have spent on my life again That I would have spent Rebuilding broken ties Replacing wasted lies Ooh futility And I don’t know if I am over it yet   And I see you there And I see you there The razor glares and stolen stares that never should have been That we cannot bear   These tainted streets are oceans And I don’t know if I can bare to see you here again ‘Cause I miss your sweet soft touch And I long for you so much it makes me want to Reach out and start things All over again   And I see you there And I see you there The razor glares and stolen stares that never should have been That we cannot bare To see, to see   And don’t you think we need a little more time to think this over? And don’t you think we need a little more time just to be? It seems we’ve lost our grip And now the memories slowly slip To the crevices below And don’t you think we need a little more time To be sure we’re through?   These empty streets are oceans But you fill them, but you fill them Fill them, yeah   And I see you there And I see you there The razor glares and stolen stares that never should have been That we cannot bare   When can I see you again? When can I see you again? The razor glares and stolen stares that never should have been That we cannot bare To see, to see, to see   These streets are like oceans

A las mujeres les dicen que sean buenas Que se ajusten, que se aguanten A las mujeres les dicen que sean lindas Que sean dulces, no se amarguen A los hombres les dicen que sean firmes Que sean duros, que maltraten Yo no puedo aceptar esas cosas Yo no suelo conformarme Ponle fin, pon fin, a eso Ponle fin, pon fin, a eso Ponle fin, pon fin, a eso Ponle fin, pon fin (x2) Hay personas que quieren decirte A quienes tu puedes amar Y después te llaman pecadores Por quererte bien casar Inmigrantes viven con horror Que los vengan a deportar Y los negros de la policía Que los suelen fácil matar Ponle fin, pon fin, a eso Ponle fin, pon fin, a eso Ponle fin, pon fin, a eso Ponle fin, pon fin (x2) Hey, what year is this so I can just Start the list of places not to take trips in a time-ship But if you happen to be stranded or on assignment Look to your left, you'll see color and racial bias The first of the two have already been proven by science To just be the difference of sun shine I'm just saying that the basis of races is determined by Melanin our skin from evolving in different places And that doesn't, change the fact that I'm human That doesn't change the fact that these isms are just illusions Alternative facts can't justify what they are doing so don't give me reasons why we should start our movements Let's do it come on No a el machismo No a la explotación No a la homofobia No, te digo no No a la intolerancia No a la deportación No a el racismo No, te digo no No a el machismo No a la explotación No a la homofobia No, te digo no No a la intolerancia No a la deportación No a el racismo No, a Donald Trump

When you were here before Couldn't look you in the eye You're just like an angel Your skin makes me cry You float like a feather In a beautiful world You’re so very special I wish I was special But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo What the hell am I doing here? I don't belong here I don't care if it hurts I want to have control I want a perfect body I want a perfect soul I want you to notice When I'm not around You're so very special I wish I was special Whatever makes you happy Whatever you want You're so very special I wish I was special

It was a warm warm day you said you loved me so you said you'd never go that day you said you'd like to stay   But now you're gone now you're gone now you're gone   It was a clear black night you told me about your dad and then you cried out loud to me and then you took my hand And it was in this room I took the time we spent and put it into shapes with you unsure or where it went   There was this other time you thought I might be right you thought that it was just too hard to keep our love alive

It’s about that time of year When you forget your fear When you forget your fate Is a little more certain, oh You begin to disappear When it’s becoming clear Deep desolation shows The unknown is growing, oh Now and then you reappear A little more less severe Now that your highs are low And your lows are higher, oh And it fills you like a void Like something you can’t avoid Something like a veneer And it shows you’re broken, oh

Prefiero morir, morir bailando Prefiero morir, morir de amor Mejor estar sola y tranquila, ay Que en el engaño de tu sudor Prefiero morir, morir bailando Prefiero morir, morir de amor Mejor dejar atrás tus mentiras, ay Que maltratar este corazón Con ese ritmo viene la noche Con el calor llega la aventura No hay que vivir con la amargura, ay Que siempre trae el desamor Y cuando bailo me lleva el ritmo Con la cintura te digo todo Solo volver amar lenta lenta lenta lentamente Con alguien que me trate mejor Tú me dejaste muy bien plantada No volveré entregarme toda Que mi felicidad es mía Que nadie más me la quitará La música es mi compañía Amor que nunca marchitará Como el espíritu de mi gente En este trópico continente En mi país hecho de calor

I’ve got a small confession I’m not made for this, I know Might be fun and games for us now But I’m not made for this, I know I’m not made for this I wanted to be true to the deal That we’d struck up, we’d agreed on But I still knew that I was weak And you made it confused Spoke with your hands Spoke with your heart Muddled my thoughts You missed me too This much I know I tried to pretend that I could do What others do, keep you apart Not get too deep, and keep my cool And you wanted to be free to be free Free to say yes Free to move on I should have known It’d end this way Will we ever see What we’re meant to be? Or did this whole thing Just run its course, run its course?

Letras: Que linda es mi tierra Tierra complicada Llena de temblores y gran explosiones Repleta de ternura Y de corazón Que lindo es quererte Que amargo es dejarte Que dulce es tu amor Mi tierra, mi tierra nacida en mi Tan lejos estas, tan lejos me fui Partí por razones, te desconocí Mi sangre caliente me llama a vos Lo siempre serás, mi querida sos Tu canto refleja tristeza y alegría Nostalgia de mi gran herencia y familia Tus sones los toco en buena compañía Con gusto y orgullo a mi tierra de sol Tu siempre serás, mi querido amor

El volcán es un símbolo místico que captura la imaginación del ser humano. La mezcla de tierra y fuego simboliza la pasión del amor, dolor, agresión, destrucción, y protesta de este disco. A la misma vez, el volcán también es simbólico del renacimiento de la tierra, de la oportunidad de poder comenzar de Nuevo que representa la esperanza que impulsa la rebelión y la lucha. Es el sueño de construir un mundo mejor para todos. // The volcano is a mystical symbol that captures the human imagination. The mix of fire and earth symbolizes the passion of the love, pain, aggression, destruction, and protest of this album. At the same time the volcano is a symbol of rebirth of land and of the opportunity to start over which represents the hope that propels rebellion and struggle. It is the dream of constructing a better world for us all.
