Bandera de Manos (Flag of Hands)
Hagamos todos
Una bandera con manos negras
Una bandera con manos blancas
Por un mundo mejor…
En este momento
Hagamos todos
Una bandera con manos mestizas
Una bandera con manos inmigrantes
Por un mundo mejor
Ya que estamos cansados
De tantas historias vencidas
Tantas promesas nunca cumplidas
Alcemos el alma y la voz
Y hagamos el amor
Como una manifestación
Que la guerra no da explicación
A seguir así
Quemando la piel de tus manos
Let’s all make
A flag with Black hands
A flag with White hands
For a better world…
In this moment
Let’s all make
A flag with mixed hands
I flag with immigrant hands
For a better world
Since we are already tired
Of so many defeated histories
So many unkept promises
Let’s lift up our soul and our voice
And let’s make love
Like a declaration
That war give no explanation
To continue like this
Burning the skin of your hands
Bandera de Manos (Cont.)
Que son las manos mías
De tu alma
Que es como el alma mía
Que ironías
Las que nos da la vida
Mientras miles se mueren de hambre
Los líderes compran arsenales
Y así siembran dolor
Hagamos todos una solo bandera todos
Derribemos fronteras todos
Por un mundo mejor
En este momento sembremos paz
Más justicia más dignidad
Libertad con más igualdad
Por un mundo mejor
Ya que estamos cansados
De tantas historias vencidas
Tantas promesas nunca cumplidas
Alcemos el alma y la voz
That are the same as my hands
Of your soul
That is like my soul
Oh, the ironies
That give us this life
While millions die of hunger
The leaders buy weapons
And create pain
Let’s all make a single flag
Breaking down boundaries between us
For a better world
In this moment let’s make peace
More justice, more dignity
Liberty with more equality
For a better world
Since we are already tired
Of do many defeated histories
So many unkept promises
Let’s lift up our soul and our voice
Bandera de Manos (cont)
Y hagamos el amor
Como una manifestación

Quemando la piel de tus manos
Que son las manos mías
De tu alma

Que ironías

Mientras miles se mueren de hambre
Los líderes compran arsenales
Y así siembran dolor
Y compran arsenales
Y así siembran dolor
And let’s make love
Like a declaration
That war give no explanation
To continue like this
Burning the skin of your hands
That are the same as my hands
Of your soul
That is like my soul
Oh, the ironies
