The gringos block the roads
Inside your head
Are you sleepin git off
when you're not in your bed?
You pray in the darkness
Let me walk in your light
Let me die in my lover's arms
Let me love through this night

You are watching over my three brave soldiers
I have not forgotten
I will send you
Something...

So this is the city
So this is progress?
How can something so pretty
become such a mess?
There is no more than this steal and stone
More than this flesh and bone
there is a little piece of land in me
No other man can own

Who is watching my three brave soldiers
I have not forgotten
I will send you
Something...

Well shut my mouth
I have nothing to say
except, what is this life?
with no love along the way
You know that I'm good for it
You know I can pay
We don't have to look for it
It is right here
It's today

    General CommentBasically, the lines "what is this life / with no love along the way" describe devotchka's content in their songs. I must say instrumentally this song is a lot more developed and interesting than a lot of the older devotchka songs. plus, nick's vocals are lot more intense on this song.

    General CommentOddly enough, I heard about this song from the band Deftones (who are up there with my favorite bands.) I liked the whole spanish vibe to it. I think thisong is about bieng angry at God, or bieng frustrated in faith, and missing someone while they are out fighting in some sort of war.
