English Lyrics for “Un violador en tu camino” (also known as “El violador eres tú”)

 

Patriarchy is a judge
Who judges us because of us being born
And our punishment
is the violence you don’t see

 

Patriarchy is a judge
Who judges us because of us being born
And our punishment
is the violence you don’t see

 

It’s femicide
Impunity for my killer
It’s the disappearance
It’s the rape

 

And it wasn’t my fault, nor where I was, nor how I dressed
And it wasn’t my fault, nor where I was, nor how I dressed
And it wasn’t my fault, nor where I was, nor how I dressed
And it wasn’t my fault, nor where I was, nor how I dressed

 

You were the rapist
You are the rapist

 

They are the police
The judges
The state
The President

 

The oppressive state is a male rapist
The oppressive state is a male rapist

 

You were the rapist
You are the rapist

 

Sleep peacefully, innocent girl
Without worrying about the bandit
Your sweet and smiling police-man lover
keeps vigil while you sleep

 

You are the rapist
You are the rapist
You are the rapist
You are the rapist
