“Yo vivía muy feliz
con mi familia a un lado
pero sabía muy bien
lo que era mi trabajo,
Que ironías de la vida, ese sueño Americano
me alejó de mi familia, me llevó
a un país lejano, a pelear por conflictos políticos
a matar seres humanos.
Hoy por la ley soy un soldado americano
pero en realidad soy inca, soy catracho,
soy boricua, soy chapin, soy 100 % mexicano.
Soy guerrero, soy latino, soy hispano
si no le temí a la furia del desierto y rió bravo
no le temo a el enemigo, no le temo ni al diablo
para que sepa de que estamos hechos
señor presidente, a mi mándeme al frente.
No le saco a mi destino
por mi sangre soy valiente
pero si quiero volver
con mi gente.
