God is in the other side of world they say.
Right now on Blood Red Hill,
God is in the other side of world they say.

But I am believing.
The savior is you.
You, are the savior.
I am waiting. On Blood Red Hill.
I am waiting for you. On Blood Red Hill.

El Terremoto Clama Justicia.
El perro aúlla como un lobo, con un sonido poco común para este noble animal, es una manera distinta de actuar y ladrar. Ramón, solo tiene 35 años y es un anciano para este pueblo de acuerdo al censo del año pasado. No hay viejos en este pueblo, porque desaparecieron hace varios años. La gran mayoría son menores que él. Ramón dice: mi abuelo desaparecido solía contarme cuando era niño, si los perros ladran de esta manera, es que habrá una desgracia natural como un temblor fuerte y hasta podría ser un terremoto o un nuevo asalto de los militares. Ramón no sabe cuál será peor el terremoto o el asalto de los militares. Él en carne propia conoce los golpes militares, las marca en su cuerpo recuerda esos crueles días.
¡Nadie pone atención a sus palabras! Los niños siguen jugando, la mujer cocinando y Ramón reparando una herramienta.
A pocas cuadras de esta casa en una calle principal del pueblo se leía en la pared de adobe de pintura blanca frente al estacionamiento de buses. ¡Mata un rico y salva el planeta tierra!
