Tribalistas - Diáspora (English translation)

English translation

Diaspora

The storm is calm
Those who dared face these seas yesterday
Perished
And those who shivered for a love
And that waited for destiny to fall from heavens live
 
We crossed the Aegean sea
The boat was full of pharisees
With Cubans, Syrians, gypsies
Like the Romans, without a Coliseum
We crossed to the other side
In the Red River of the sacred sea
The shopping centers crowed with
Migrants1, refugees
 
You, where are you?
Where are you?
Where are you?
 
Where is
My brother
Without a sister
My fatherless child
My mother
Without a grandmother
Giving someone a hand
Without a place
To be
The boys feel no peace
Where are you
My Lord
Where are you?
Where are you?
 
Lord
Oh, Lord, where are you
You don't answer
In which world
On which star
Are you hiding
Covering in the skies
Two thousand years ago I shouted to you
Since then this shout runs around the universe in vain
Where are you, my Lord?
