Produced by
Carl Restivo & The Bloody Beetroots
Curtain rise and rooster crow
Clouds frame the lights below
Lightning over Mexico

Kiss the master's ring then go
Unearth the box of sharpened stones
Lightning over Mexico

Oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Ashes of unfavored souls
Arrow cocked in quivering bow
Lightning over Mexico

With martyr's blood, the San Juan flows
Drags tyrants 'neath the undertow
Lightning over Mexico

Oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Nos clavaron de entrada, nos taparon de las caras
Nos callaron las palabras, nos mataron la esperanza
Persiguieron con redada, acribillaron con las balas
Enterraran con las palas, en la escala somos los sin cara

Los sin nombre, los nadie, los nada
Somos los asesinados, cada uno en social democracia
Falsa

No estamos en tus museos
Y nuestros cuerpos no caben en tus medios
Somos cuarta, quinta categoría
Los humanos sin derecho, sin reparos, sin dinero, sin techo

Los que refriegan en tu cara
Que somos miles, miles y miles despiertos
Pensaste matarnos, pero nos multiplicamos
Somos la semillas que no murieron en vano
Y ahora nos toca, liberarnos, levantarnos
Somos el rayo
Somos el rayo

Buried us beneath the reeds
Didn't know that we were seeds
Buried us beneath the reeds
Didn't know that we were seeds
Buried us beneath the reeds
Didn't know that we were seeds

Oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
