Your true lies / Tus mentiras verdaderas

It is raining unity and you do not feel its
forgetfulness, quietly laughing at the weeping
around you and the reality that is diluted
uselessly in your sordid fascinations.

How good it is to live in the tricolor reverie
of the people sullied by your true lies
diluted in your dreams of clarity and beauty
without any remorse of conscience.

It is thundering peace while you whistle
to war, and you give up one by one
the stars of my country to your entourage
of voices, forgotten of their own humility!

Today I am happy because I see a different future
where revoked dreams are not impossible,
because down the road the shadows shall die
diluted beneath the clarity of the true moon…

Esta lloviendo unidad y tu no sientes
el olvido, riéndote apaciblemente del llanto
que te rodea y la realidad que se diluye
inútilmente en tus sórdidos embelesos.

Que bueno es vivir en el ensueño tricolor
de un pueblo mancillado por tus mentiras
diluido en tus sueños de claridad y belleza
sin ningún remordimiento de conciencia.

Esta tronando la paz mientras tu le silvas
a la guerra, y le vas regalando una a una,
las estrellas de mi patria a todo tu séquito
de voces, olvidadas de su propia humildad!

Hoy soy feliz porque veo un futuro distinto
donde los sueños revocados no son imposibles,
porque al final del camino morirán las sombras
diluidas bajo la claridad de una verdadera luna…

    My gosh, I love your last words – “down the road the shadows shall die
    diluted beneath the clarity of a real moon…” Excellent, excellent.

    There’s quite a depth to you, Gavriel.
