Matador (Torero)

English translation

Matador

Between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea
There's a land of coast and a lot of sun
Where, since yesteryear, people's been practicing
A disgusting and dirty tradition
 
Someone dressed up like a clown
Tortures and torments an animal till death
And the stands go crazy when the blade
Announces its end
 
Banderilleros* thirsty of violence
Torturing without any compassion
And the picadors* go on with the slaughter
Emphasizing stabs of pain
 
Seriously wounded, it charges with his fighting spirit
Against the cold blade that destroys it inside
Agonizing in a puddle of blood
The puntillero* finishes off the show
 
Celebration!! Criminal!! Shame!!
 
Matador, you are the shame of a nation
Matador, you are the violence on TV
Matador, you have a vocation for killing
Matador, your job disgusts me
 
Calling culture to the organized sadism
The violence, the death or the pain
Is an insult to intelligence
To the development of our evolution
 
Your indifference makes them powerful
Show your rejection to the criminal celebration
Don't collaborate with an insane game
People related to bullfighting must be included in the penal law!
 
Celebration!! Criminal!! Shame!!
 
Matador, you are the shame of a nation
Matador, you are the violence on TV
Matador, you have a vocation for killing
Matador, your job disgusts me
 
Celebration!! Criminal!! Shame!!

Torero

Entre el atlántico y el mar mediterráneo
Hay una tierra de mar y mucho sol,
Que desde antaño se viene practicando
Una asquerosa y sucia tradición.
