Convulsiones Nicas

Latin Alliance [1991]

De Nicaragua yo vengo directo / vengo en efecto 
decilo correcto / contalo que es cierto

Telling the truth about where I come from NICARAGUA
the Lyrical Latin is a Central American
telling the story of the glory of the land
a once beautiful country now free of command
but something went wrong
with a strong form of government—
they tried to give it an adjustment . . .

Así comenzó la guerilla  / donde matan a sangre fría
Cold-blooded; not giving it a second thought
the love of freedom was the reason that so many fought
The start of corruption and the destruction
when given an order – you follow that instruction.
This is the place where everyone takes command: no man’s land . . .

No man’s land / meaning no exit or entry: place of no choice / wishing and envy
Force of this kind / brainwashing the mind / families split apart and left behind

todo comenzó con la revolución / gente no estaba satisfecha con la función
that the country had  / and the system it was running
plans were now made and war was now coming
tiraron los Somoza y entró el Sandinismo / cuando pasó eso entró el comunismo

my people use their own people
they got greedy with the power to not treat’em as an equal
this is the place where everyone takes command: no man’s land…

♪♫♫ MUSIC ♪♪♫ 

Niños tirados a la guerra / también mujeres peleaban como fieras
so many people were tortured and killed, so much pain / so much blood spilled
I can’t believe / no lo puedo creer como la gente cambian cuando tienen poder
colors of the flag replaced in fact: the red means blood and death means black
and in the center of the flag: F.S.L.N / la bandera Sandinista se sostiene

hopefully one day we’ll all be at peace
and all of these countries will soon be released
so we won’t sink into the communist quicksand: no man’s land…
