Why you gotta be so far away"

No one fortelling the depth and type of destruction
Dm              Am                       E
Nor the sadness trapped on the tongue of Malinche
Dm           Am                           E
Quetzalcoatl feathers strewn out over the altar
Dm                     Am                   E

Codices lost to a language that's been broken
