Visa for a dream (Visa para un sueño)

English translation

Visa for a dream

It was five in the morning
a priest in training, a manual worker,
with a thousand documents of economic solvency
that don´t afford them the luxury of sincerity.
 
It was seven in the morning
going one by one to the slaughterhouse
since everyone has their price
looking for a visa for a dream.
(lie-la-lie, lie-la-lie)
 
The sun burning up his guts, phew!
a consolation letter
with a two-by-four photograph
that melts away in the silence.
 
It was nine in the morning
Santo Domingo, January the 8th
and the patience is running out
because there´s no longer a visa for a dream
¡Oh, oh!
 
Searching for a visa for a dream
Searching for a visa for a dream
Searching for a visa made of concrete and lime
who would find me on the asphalt?
 
Searching for a visa for a dream (oh)
Searching for a visa for a dream
Searching for a visa, the reason of being
Searching for a visa so as not to come back
Searching for a visa for a dream (oh)
Searching for a visa for a dream
Searching for a visa, oh how furious it makes me
Searching for a visa, a blow from the powers that be
Searching for a visa, what else can I do
Searching for a visa, to sink
Searching for a visa, fodder for the sea
Searching for a visa, the reason of being
Searching for a visa, so as not to come back.

Visa para un sueño

Eran las cinco 'e la mañana
un seminarista, un obrero
con mil papeles de solvencia
que no les dan pa' ser sinceros
 
Eran las siete 'e la mañana
y uno por uno al matadero
pues cada cual tiene su precio
