"Victor Jara's Hands" as written by Jairo Zavala Ruiz and Joseph G Burns....
Wire fences still coiled with flowers of the night
Songs of the birds like hands call the earth to witness
Sever from fear before taking flight

Fences that fail and fall to the ground
Bearing the fruit from Jara's hands

Me siento solo why perdido una vela alumbra mi camino
Cruzando tierras que nunca he visto
Cruzando el rio de mi destino
Solo soy un chico mas que suena en alto why mirando al mar

Fences that fail and fall to the ground
Bearing the fruit from Jara's hands
Fences that fail and fall to the ground
Bearing the fruit from Jara's hands

    General CommentVictor Jara was a chilean songwriter from the 60' and early 70'. He was captured by Pinochet and was tortured. His tongue was cut off and his hands were beaten untill they were completely broken, after that he was killed. Victor's songs are part of the history of Chile, same with Violeta Parra's songs.
