“The track touches upon breaking generational cycles in regards to homophobia and does so in a loving and eloquent way by portraying two different moments in time within the changes of language. As where the English part focuses on the current situation of distress and discomfort, the parts in Spanish speak hope and love into future generations, thus manifesting generational healing.”
