Track Name: Time Is Now
Everything’s burning, everything’s burning
Everything’s burning so bright
Everyone’s turning, everyone’s turning
Everything turns to the light

The time to be out here is now
The time to be out here is now

We have a reason, we have a reason
We have a reason to know
This is the season, this is the season
This is the season to go


Shed all our tears, shed all our tears
We’ve no more tears left to shed
Faced all our fears, faced all our fears
Nothing remains to be said

Track Name: Hasta Siempre Comandante
Aprendimos a quererte
desde la histórica altura
donde el sol de tu bravura
le puso cerco a la muerte

Aquí se queda la clara
la entrañable transparencia
de tu querida presencia
comandante Che Guevara

Tu mano gloriosa y fuerte
sobre la historia dispara
cuando todo Santa Clara
se despierta para verte


The English translation (only a part of the lyrics of this song) - it does sound better in Spanish, though:

Until Forever, Commander

We learned to love you
from the heights of history
where the sun of your bravery
put you close to death

Here remains the clear
deep transparency
of your beloved presence
Commander Che Guevara

Your glorious and strong hand
fires over history
when all of Santa Clara
awakens to see you
Track Name: Calling Me Home
This boy’s in love with you, but you are far away
I hear your voice, but it’s a voice on the radio

The sound comes from far away
It’s calling me home
Yes, it’s calling me home
Home to my father, home to my mother
Home to my sister, home to my brother

When the fighting’s over, I’m coming home to marry you (repeat)
I wear my wedding ring on the wrong finger for you (repeat)


The industrial palaces are crumbling into stones
I feel the music in my blood and my bones
