Coyote's gone with most our money

And all our hope.

Left us just this side

Of Mexico. 

Home feels like heaven

I know the buzzards overhead

Hold salvation in their kiss. 

It's this bad, crazy sun

That makes me think like that. 

I lost my mind

And I lost my soul

dividida entre dos tierras y convertirte

en el puente entre dos países.

Inmigrante de primera generación.

tal vez todos somos inmigrantes
