Fan translation of lyrics: We start talking from the bottom (people) to the top (governors). [If you] Close your ears, don’t listen, ignore, i’ll use a megaphone. Living in life, like a statue, that doesn’t sell anything in the market. Open that mouth, speak, freedom, your tongue free. Your tongue is FREE ! This is my country, i speak within it, i ain’t crazy. This is my country, i speak within it, i ain’t crazy! Where is freedom when you see the prisons (torture). The police is drowning in money, as they sell the law. Where is the press? Where? Where are the people? Where? Where is the television? Where are the intellectuals? Where are the people? Where are you, O scholar! In every shop you find the picture of the boss (politicians). Paper.. Pen, Against the wind.. Against the wind.. Paper.. Pen, Against the wind.. Against the wind! Don’t hide, what you think is right, what you think is right. Lot of pits, be careful to fall down. Live tough, stay strong, STRONG! stand on your dignity! Speak, talk, discuss, tell, LIBERTA! LIBERTA!
