VOLVER AL FUTURO – BACK TO THE FUTURE (NUTRIA NN, BROOKLYN))

01 – 1. Volver al futuro

It is a song inspired by Michelle Bachelet, current president of Chile. The narrator of the song, however, is situated in the future, the day of Bachelet’s funeral ceremony, year 2037. He looks back in time to some of the events in her life: before becoming president (her father was killed by the secret service of Pinochet and she herself was tortured after the military coup,) and after becoming president (when the right wing started a “fear and terror” campaign and started a Boycott against her, just like what happened in the early seventies with the previous socialist president democratically elected in Chile, Salvador Allende.)
It’s a song that protest against the Latin American privileged classes who start economic and politic domestic dirty wars in order to create the sensation of chaos, and thus, destroy any political movement that may put their privileges at risk.
In politics the same evil things happen from time to time, it is almost like I movie that we have seen before and plays over and over again. It is a song that suggests that History is circular.

VOLVER AL FUTURO-BACK TO THE FUTURE

Walking around the neighborhood
Near Central Station, pealing
From the belfry
The bell was pealing
For whom do you toll bell?
Has her heart been honored yet?
For whom does the cannon blow?
It was imprinted in paper
When you broke the law
Of the intelligence agent
Of the agent who sliced you
Now I remember when
They called the general boycott
You tottered with the weight
Of the key of power!
For whom do the children cry?
Has her heart been honored yet?
For whom does the cannon blow?
I look at time
You spoke for the lives
Of the mothers and the oppressed
That was hard labor
For whom do the children cry?
Has her heart been honored yet?
For whom does the cannon blow?
It was imprinted in paper
When you broke the law
Of the people
Of the people who sliced you
