es lo que es

las noticias de la vida

todo cambia pero

quedan las heridas

y yo que fui

tan perdido por aquí

me encontraré

la paz sin ser

cometido ha mentiras


(musical interlude … lots of horns)


Y es lo que es

la vida por noticias

nada cambia pero

quedan injusticias

y yo que fui

educado por aquí

me encontraré

razon sin ser

cometido ha malicias


 (repeat music … end with horns and cymbals)

but you have to remember

the addendum, my brothers,

     not that we are equals,

     but that some “are more equal

               than others.”

Just because you’re paranoid,

doesn’t mean you’re not being watched.
