"Van A Rodar Cabezas" as written by and Jose Mario Martinez Arroyo Gonzalez Jesus Maria Hernandez Gil....
Si he de morir, será luchando
Por ver crecer a mi pueblo aquí
Y perderé en un suspiro
Lo que en una vida tardé en construir

Si he de vivir, no será mendigando
Por mi cultura y por lo que creí
Si he de caer, será al menos luchando
Porque no secuestren mi libertad

Si he de callar, lo haré dejando
Que hable por mi, el viento de aquí
No quiero ver a mi pueblo adorando
A un dios que no puede al sol oír

Si he de gritar mi odio irá levantando
Tal tempestad que ira os helará
Si he de matar no será asesinando
El hombre blanco lo hace
No por sobrevivir
Se que llegará el día
En que llueva libertad
Y que escrito en la luna
Con la tinta de un clavel
Se lea “vive en paz”

No dejes que la melancolía
De tu memoria sea el retrovisor
No dejes que una frontera consiga
Determinar el país de una flor

Beso el suelo y de rodillas
Me despido de la mar
En otra vida volveré
Hoy van a rodar cabezas
Hoy van a rodar

    Heads Will Roll


    If I must die, it will be fighting
    To see my people grow up here
    And I'll lose in a sigh
    What took me a lifetime to build

    If I must live, it won't be begging
    For my culture and for what I believed in
    If I must fall, at least it will be fighting
    So they can't kidnap my freedom

    If I must keep quiet, it will be letting
    The wind from here speak for me
    I don't want to see my people worshiping
    A God that can't hear the Sun

    If I must scream, my hate will raise
    Such tempest, that my anger will freeze you
    If I must kill, it won't be murdering
    The white man does it, not to survive

    I know that the day will arrive
    In which freedom rains
    And that written on the moon
    With the ink of a carnation
    You can read "live in peace"

    I know that the day will arrive
    In which freedom rains
    And that written on the moon
    With the ink of a carnation
    You can read "live in peace"

    Don't let the melancholy
    Of your memory be the rear-view mirror
    Don't let a border
    Determine the nation of a flower

    If I must scream, my hate will raise
    Such tempest, that my anger will freeze you
    If I must kill, it won't be murdering
    The white man does it, not to survive

    I know that the day will arrive
    In which freedom rains
    And that written on the moon
    With the ink of a carnation
    You can read "live in peace"

    I kiss the ground and on my knees
    Say goodbye to the seas
    In another life I'll return
    Today heads will roll
    Today they will roll

    General CommentIt's about the time when the Spaniards conquered Mexico. Montezuma's mindset...


    It's a popular folk tale here in Mexico that when the Spaniards captured Montezuma, when he refused to make the Aztecs surrender to the Spaniards, Cortés himself had him and another Aztec laid down, tied up and had his feet burned.
    The other Aztec screamed in agony and begged for mercy, and meanwhile Montezuma calmly asked him, "what are you whining about?"
