Yo no creo en fronteras, yo no crea en fronteras, yo cruzaré, yo cruzaré
(I don’t believe in borders, I don’t believe in borders, I will cross them, I will cross them)


Basically most of their songs are, just like this song, very moving and energetic.
Also there are meaningful lyrics to the tracks.

Y bailaré sobre tu tumba. ................................ And I'll dance on your grave.
Y bailaré sobre tu tumba. ................................ And I'll dance on your grave." ♫


Pueblos del mundo ("Peoples of the World") and Cuenca minera ("Coal-mining Area"):



chorus:

Dejad que continúe la evolución.........................Let evolution go on.
esterilizad a vuestro hijos...................Sterilize your children.
Juntos de la mano............................Let's go together hand in hand
