    Under a black veil of smoke
    the valley of anxiety opens
    concrete blocks and cement
    the saintly herb, the boxes of detergent
    in this valley of asphalt and lead
    chili, tortilla and salt to eat
    at xochimilco lake
    I imagine a golden eagle...
    down the Zaragoza exit,
    by the houses with grey walls,
    between the patios, the clotheslines
    the country's new clothes
    being forged by hands and labor
    stone on stone, the construction
    from the province, I brought a dream
    to this big lake, city of the Sun

    I cry for my beloved homeland
    because I am so far away
    with a saddened soul
    I also cry for her
    the one who is lost
    and I, lost for her

    Tooth and tooth, blood with blood
    valley of lead, mistaken machine
    crazy with asphalt
    dust, rain, thunders from the pay-off commission
    little scares you
    little you like
    everything you swallow
    everything you blame
    stone with stone
    data with data
    what is the bar code on your epitaph?

    Tooth and tooth, blood with blood
    no one responds for these streets
    in the distance, the electric cables
    make a nest of travelling shadows
    and at the corners all the dead
    the drains steal your dreams
    from millions, a rain of tears
    from their enchantments and frustrations

    Between the stones of a dead lake,
    the lament of a city is heard
    another colony extends itself
    another family, no salary and no home
    but the plant keeps blooming,
    everyone struggles to win each day,
    we all enjoy life for a while,
    transit passes, comes and goes
