El Agua

El Poder no se toma
Cultura no se toma
Gasolina no se toma
Riqueza no se toma
Tu moda no se toma
Técnología no se toma
Tu ley no se toma
La religion no se toma

El Poder no se toma
Cultura no se toma
Gasolina no se toma
Riqueza no se toma
Tu moda no se toma
Técnología no se toma
Tu ley no se toma
La religion no se toma

Si mi gente mi pueblo
no tiene agua
serán pasas de ese vino
que sigues bebiendo,
ese vino que no es
mas que sangre derramada
antes de nacer muerto,
muerto sediento,
dame de beber
pero como dijo el Dios Maya
que el agua te valga
te valga todo el lujo
que decoran tus palacios
tus autos tus joyas
que a la larga no valen nada

Nos quitaron la Lluvia
Nos quitaron los ríos
Nos quitaron el mar
se lo vendieron al mejor postor
y ya no agua que beber
ni aire que respirar
si no pagas el precio
a una multinacional

si no pagas el precio

You can not drink my country
You can not drink your power
You can not drink cultura
You can not drink family
You can not drink money
You can not drink computers
You can not drink oil
You can not drink gold

You can not drink a nation
You can not drink a weapon
You can not drink luxury
You can not drink hypocrisy
You can not drink ideas
You can not drink intentions
You can not drink business
You can not drink dreams

El Agua

You can't drink power
You can't drink culture
You can't drink gasoline
You can't drink riches
You can't drink your fashion
you can't drink technology
You can't drink your law
You can't drink religion

You can't drink power
You can't drink culture
You can't drink gasoline
You can't drink riches
You can't drink your fashion
you can't drink technology
You can't drink your law
You can't drink religion

If my people, my village
Have no water
They will become raisins
of that wine you keep drinking
That wine that is nothing
but blood that's been shed
Before being born dead
Dead and thirsty
Give me something to drink
But as the Mayan god said
you will pay for water
as you will pay for the luxury of your palaces
your cars and your jewels
but in the end they're worthless

They took away the rain
They took away the rivers
They took away the sea
And they sold it to the best bidder
Now there's no more water to drink
Nor air to breathe
If you don't pay a price

Multinational
Multinational
If you don't pay a price
To a multinational

You can not drink my country
You can not drink your power
You can not drink cultura
You can not drink family
You can not drink money
You can not drink computers
You can not drink oil
You can not drink gold

You can not drink a nation
You can not drink a weapon
You can not drink luxury
You can not drink hypocrisy
You can not drink ideas
You can not drink intentions
You can not drink business
You can not drink dreams
