El Espejo
Maná Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Con duda yo pensaba si lo haría, si era de ida y de regreso
El espejo seductor en su reflejo lo tenía que cruzar
Lo toco con la punta de mi miedo que se hunde en el mercurio, del cristal
Lo cruzo y lo dejo a mis espaldas, no hay regreso, está fatal

Quedé atrapado
En un espejo azul
¿Qué voy a hacer Dios mío?
Estoy perdiendo la razón

Quedé atrapado
Quedé fundido
En otro tiempo
En otra dimensión

Voy caminando por el hall del monasterio medieval
El padre Aurelio me instruyó ("Bienvenido, pase ya")
"Todo lo que vea es de usted, se lo voy a regalar" me dijo el cura sin piedad
"Usted pudo llegar hasta aquí y jamás podrá escapar"

Uoh-oh-oh, uoh-oh-oh
Por pecar y blasfemar
Uoh-oh-oh, uoh-oh-oh
Con la vida pagarán

Quedé atrapado
En un espejo azul
¿Qué voy a hacer Dios mío?
Estoy perdiendo la razón

Quedé atrapado, oh
Quedé fundido
En otro tiempo
En otra dimensión

Cayendo, huyendo, están equivocados
"Maligno, mezquino" me grita un fraile bizantino
Y en el río la jauría de los frailes me seguía
Me atraparon, me golpearon de regreso a la abadía

Y en el patio del convento exorcistas me gritaban
"No hay remedio, a la hoguera" "No lo hagan, no"

(No lo hagan, no) no me maten por piedad
(No lo hagan, no) no me maten por piedad
(No lo hagan, no) no me maten por favor
(No lo hagan, no) no, por piedad





Piedad Dios mío

Overall Meaning

The song "El Espejo" by Maná is about a man who is reflecting on a decision he made to cross a seductive mirror, which he describes as a one-way journey. He touches the mirror with the tip of his fear, and as he crosses it, he leaves everything behind, feeling trapped and losing his mind. The lyrics suggest that the mirror may represent a portal to another dimension or reality. The second verse of the song introduces a new character, Father Aurelio, who welcomes the singer to a medieval monastery and tells him that everything he sees is his. The singer is then trapped in the mirror and transported to another time and dimension. He finds himself walking through the medieval monastery, but is soon chased by a group of angry friars who believe he has sinned and blasphemed. The lyrics suggest that the singer is eventually caught and punished, with the exorcists yelling for him to be burned at the stake.


The meaning of the song is open to interpretation, but it seems to be about the consequences of giving in to temptation and how it can lead to a loss of control and even punishment. The mirror may also represent the dangers of getting too caught up in one's own reflection or desires. The lyrics are poetic and powerful, and the band's use of rock and Latin rhythms creates a haunting and intense atmosphere.
