about

Find yourself immersed in a merging of music and literature on this original track co-written by the great Guatemalan author, Marvin DeLos Reyes, and featuring Marc Saucer of Bad Mooka on vocals, as part of a special project in which we tell the tale of Marvin's book "Sueño en Llamas."

lyrics

Sueño… Sueño en llamas
Burning dreams… burning flesh
Listen… there’s a tale…. There’s a dream… there’s a fact…
Dream… keep on dreaming….keep on searching… and you’ll find your truth
Sueño… Sueño en llamas
keep your eyes closed…. Better keep your eyes closed

cuz there’s a monster burning your past in his hands
burning your tale in his hands
But there’s an angel whose face’s my face
And tells me I’ve got nothing to fear…

Una vida peor de lo que ves en tus programas
Me quemo en el fuego cuando sueño en mis llamas
Las historias que tiré son mis hijas abandonadas
Dejé a mi país, hoy le debo de palabras
Cuando lágrimas caen en mi tierra se hace lodo
Isolated inside my culture por eso siempre salgo solo
So I made a barrier, lines of looseleaf beneath my pencil
Tengo mis memorias pero perdí mis sentimientos
So my dreams burnt out and from the ashes my conscience was born
En una grieta del concreto se puede nacer una flor
Pero me miran por la calle y me llaman la escoria
So paria de la sociedad, mendigo de historias
