Broken Arrow

 

The lights turned on and the curtain fell down,

And when it was over it felt like a dream,

They stood at the stage door

and begged for a scream,

The agents had paid for the black limousine

That waited outside in the rain.

Did you see them, did you see them?

Did you see them in the river?

They were there to wave to you.

Could you tell that the empty quivered,

Brown skinned Indian on the banks

That were crowded and narrow,

Held a broken arrow?

 

Eighteen years of American dream,

He saw that his brother had sworn on the wall.

He hung up his eyelids and ran down the hall,

His mother had told him a trip was a fall,

And don't mention babies at all.

Did you see him, did you see him?

Did you see him in the river?

He were there to wave to you.

Could you tell that the empty quivered,

Brown skinned Indian on the banks

That were crowded and narrow,

Held a broken arrow?

 

The streets were lined for the wedding parade,

The Queen wore the white gloves,

the county of song,

The black covered caisson her horses had drawn

Protected her King from the sun rays of dawn.

They married for peace and were gone.

Did you see them, did you see them?

Did you see them in the river?

They were there to wave to you.

Could you tell that the empty quivered,

Brown skinned Indian on the banks

That were crowded and narrow,

Held a broken arrow?

 

Flecha Rota

 

Las luces se encendieron y cayó el telón,

Y cuando terminó pareció como un sueño,

Estaban de pie en la entrada del escenario

y pedían un grito,

Los agentes habían alquilado una limusina negra

Que esperaba afuera en la lluvia,

¿Los viste? ¿Los viste?

¿Los viste en el río?

Estaban allí para darte la señal.

¿Te fijaste con la aljaba vacía,

Con el indio de piel morena en los bancos,

Que estaban apiñados y estrechos

Y sostenía una flecha rota?

 

Dieciocho años del sueño Americano,

Vio la blasfemia de su hermano en la pared.

Cerró sus párpados y echó a correr por el pasillo,

Su madre le había dicho que el viaje fue un declive,

Y no mencionó nada de los bebés.

¿Los viste? ¿Los viste?

¿Los viste en el río?

Estaban allí para darte la señal.

¿Te fijaste con la aljaba vacía,

Con el indio de piel morena en los bancos,

Que estaban apiñados y estrechos

Y sostenía una flecha rota?

 

La gente abarrotaba las calles en el desfile de boda,

La Reina llevaba los guantes blancos

del condado de la canción,

El negro furgón cubierto que tiraban los caballos

Protegía al Rey de los rayos del sol matinales,

Se casaron por la paz y desaparecieron.

¿Los viste? ¿Los viste?

¿Los viste en el río?

Estaban allí para darte la señal.

¿Te fijaste con la aljaba vacía,

Con el indio de piel morena en los bancos,

Que estaban apiñados y estrechos

Y sostenía una flecha rota?
