Lyrics in English:
Turned a light on in the dark
A seed of hope for humanity
Prevention of violence with so much cruelty
With tools to calm the desire to do evil.
Alternative to Violence Program
AVP created to create coexistence
Because in this world evil has influence
So much bloodshed causes dementia.
There is a Power that you have the capacity to transform
Violent or destructive situations and behaviors,
In constructive experiences and cooperative behavior
In 1975 the program was born
between bars, founded to placate
so much violence.
With constructive workshops
Based on real life, without fictional content
Maybe I am not like Gandhi
But I do not like to see my brothers suffer
I do not compare myself to Mandela
But seeing so many crimes to my soul
Wrapped up in the delights of life
Blinded by the desire for revenge with no way out
With hate, resentment for humanity
But a light of hope clarifies my dark reality
With the learning of each workshop
Now I see the sunrise
Changing little by little, my bad routine
Using AVP tools I acquired.
Being a new person is not easy.
But fighting against violence you can get there.
It is not religion, but it makes the heart clean.
It is not a sect, only facts of daily life.
It is not obligation, just have the will
To be able to have another way of acting
Relate to people, respect,
Have empathy for others.
Understand that not everything is fixed
Reflect that life is
better when peace reigns.
