America

The boat is small but the view is good,
the stars shine so clearly tonight.
The wind has subsided and the sea is calm,
one already sees lights from land.
 
The men on the beach are as naked as children,
they laugh and help us onto land.
They offer us fruit, they offer us bread;
The women are not seen yet.
 
We have found America!
We have found America!
We have been guided by the stars,
we have found America.
 
The birds fly when the shot is fired;
the first ones who fall don't understand anything.
The ivory sand beach is spotted with blood,
But no one tries to leave.
 
We light a light for our beloved king;
We fall on our knees and become lost in prayer.
We thank the Madonna who brought us here
to this blessed land.
 
We have found America!
We have found America!
We have been guided by the stars,
we have found America.

Björn Afzelius wrote the following comments about this song:

"När spanjorerna 1492 kom till Karibien grundlades ett terrorvälde mot indianerna i nästan hela Latinamerika som man tydligt kan se följderna av än idag. Sången skrevs inför 500-årsminnet av detta förödande europeiska plundringståg."

When the Spaniards in 1492 came to the Caribbean, they founded a Terrorist Empire against the Indians in almost all of Latin American which one can clearly see the consequences of even today. The song was written before the 500 year's anniversary of this devastating European foray.

Thanks to Maria Stand for her help in editing the translation of this song.
