The mountains
    The milapas
          The hummingbirds
               The rain

All fade away...

The rainbows
     The flowers
          The incense
               The candles

All fade away...

The Santos
     The drumbeats
          The cofradias
               The Ancianos

All fade away...

The marimba from the cemetary
slowly fades away...It dies a note at a time.

And the old men And the old women
take off their masks and stop dancing.
