“Profound Wound” is directly inspired by the story of Mirtha Luz Perez Robledo. She is a mother whose daughter (Nadia Dominique Vera Perez) was murdered by criminals because she spoke out against corruption and was a political activist. This song is about the anguish and sorrow of a mother and the unhealed wound of her daughter’s violent murder. This song reminds us that “old news” is still “new” for those closest to it. That for many, justice still has not been served. We are reminded what can happen to those who advocate relentless for justice. We are reminded of the risks we take spiritually, emotionally, and physically for love.  

Profound Wound

Make noise, be silenced

Flame of my daughters’ ashes

Make form, to loss

Futile ache of my mother’s heart

Make noise, be silenced

Make noise, be brave

Die for cruel truth revealed

Live for eternity

Shout grief, held sacred

Solidarity tastes bittersweet

Defend memory, we suffer

Ghosts marching in disquiet streets

Make noise, be silenced

Make noise, be brave

Die for cruel truth revealed

Live for eternity

Country of crossfire, state of dishonor

Land of injustice, truth to the slaughter

(limp hearts, empty promises, full pockets)

Herida Profunda

Haz ruido, sé silenciado

Llama de las cenizas de mis hijas

Dale forma a la pérdida

Dolor fútil del corazón

Haz ruido, sé silenciado

Haz ruido, sé valiente

Muere por la revelación de la cruel verdad

Vive para la eternidad

Grita la pena, tal vez sagrada

La solidaridad no sabe muy bien

Defiende el recuerdo, sufrimos

Fantasmas marchando en calles

Haz ruido, sé silenciado

Haz ruido, sé valiente

Muere por la revelación de la cruel verdad

Vive para la eternidad

Fuego cruzado, estado de deshonor

Tierra de injusticia, matanza

(corazones inertes, promesas vacías, bolsillos llenos)
