lyrics

ANGELA SIMONS

The morning she changed her name
Identity was left far behind,
Her family didn't mind...

Eight in the morning and the streets awaken!
Angela Simons applies for a job,
A new employee for society,
America, you have a new daughter!
One more "other" to protect.

The factory maid
Was found in an alleyway
With a picture of her darling baby boy.
At least that's what the police said.-
'Her dress torn apart
And the collar of her mother
Stained with soil'.
Angela Simons was found dead in New York
Her hand on her bossom and her
Legs stretched to the the floor...

The morning she passed away
Reporters flew from all parts of town
To tell the story of Angélica,
Angélica...

"Illegal imigration",- you hear them say.
'Has suffered a hard blow today.
Mexico mourns the loss of a woman
26 years of age'.

Who nourished hatred?
Who cornered her?
And took her to the open
And beat the life out her?
Angela Simons was found dead in New York, today.
Another deceased whose story will pass away,
No matter if she's gone, others will follow the chain.
Angela Simons was found dead in New York, today...

Eight in the morning and the streets awaken!
Broadcast goes live to interview her relatives.
'Live, from Los Angeles, Angela's father,
Guillermo Simón...'

America, America!
The dreams you sell
We can count them in dollars,
That's what your morality worth...
