Las cometas siempre vuelan en agosto

Crecimos con el peso del pasado en nuestra espalda
Todo pintaba para mal
Donde las mujeres van con miedo por la calle si se ponen falda
Recuerdos que aún se empolvan con cenizas de nogal
Todo pintaba para mal
Y a un país de mierda el noticiero de las nueve le daba el final
Porque el humor se había apagado, enmascarando tantas cicatrices
Difuminando la promesa de que llegarían tiempos felices
Y aunquе un avión era un sinónimo de fuego prеndido en el aire
Sé que rendirme a las condenas del pasado sería ser cobarde
 
Seguro que entre la locura hay ilusiones enterradas
Aunque la noche siga oscura y todavía no vemos nada
Aunque nos tiemblen las rodillas, las calles hay que caminarlas
No hay una sola pesadilla que sea inmune a terminarla
Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh-uh-uh
Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh-uh-uh
 
Porque sé
Que aunque el vestigio del pasado tiene un costo
Y aunque haya días con tristeza en nuestro rostro
Sé que las cometas siempre vuelan en agosto
 
El sí y el no partieron a las víctimas en dos
Lo pienso y se quiebra mi voz
El realismo mágico nos tienta a más de uno a decir "adiós", mmm
Y aunque estoy cansado de quejarme y que el gobierno todo lo improvise (Todo lo improvise)
También me tengo que sumar, no soy el hombre que yo siempre quise
Y a lo mejor me suena falso cuando intento ser tan positivo
Porque hay más de seis mal razones para seguir siendo negativos
 
Seguro que entre la locura (Entre la locura) hay ilusiones enterradas (Ilusiones enterradas)
Aunque la noche siga oscura y todavía no vemos nada
Aunque nos tiemblen las rodillas, las calles hay que caminarlas
No hay una sola pesadilla que sea inmune a terminarla (No)
Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh-uh-uh
Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh-uh-uh
 
Porque sé
Que aunque el vestigio del pasado tiene un costo
Y aunque haya días con tristeza en nuestro rostro
Sé que las cometas siempre vuelan en agosto
 
[Outro]
Mmm

The comets always come back in August

We grow up with the burden from the past on our backs
Everything seemed bad
Where women went on the streets with fear if they wear skirts
Memories that are still dusted with walnut ashes
Everything seemed bad
And to a shitty country the nine o'clock news gave the end
Because the mood had gone out, masking many scars
Blurring the promise that good times will arrive
And although an airplane was synonymous with fire in the sky
I know that to surrender myself to the damnation of the past would be cowardly
 
I'm sure that within the madness there are buried hopes
Even though the night continues to be dark and we still do not see anything
Even though our knees shake, the paths have to be walked through
There's not a single nightmare that's immune to being over
Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh-uh-uh
Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh-uh-uh
 
Because I know
That although traces of the past have a cost
And although there are days that we have sadness on our faces
I know that the comets always come back in August
 
The "Yes" and "No" divided the victims into two
I think about it and my voice shatters
The magic realism tempts more than one of us to say "goodbye", mmm
And although I'm tired of complaining and the government making up everything (Making up everything)
I also have to connect, I'm not the man I always wanted
And it might as well sound fake to me when I'm trying to be positive
Because there are more than six bad reasons to keep being negative
 
I'm sure that within the madness (within the madness) there are buried hopes (buried hopes)
Even though the night continues to be dark and we still do not see anything
Even though our knees shake, the paths have to be walked through
There's not a single nightmare that's immune to being over (No)
Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh-uh-uh
Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh-uh-uh
 
Because I know
That although traces of the past have a cost
And although there are days that we have sadness on our faces
I know that the comets always come back in August
 
[Outro]
Mmm
 
Thanks!

Author's comments:

From Morat themselves, the commentary on their song goes as follows (Translated):

"The purpose of this song is to illuminate the faces of some social leaders that risk their lives to see a Colombia in peace. This is a tribute to the burden that they carry on their backs and a call to hope for our country.

The stronger the wind blows, the higher comets fly."
