Damunt d'una terra Over a land

Vailet, et diuen que a les guerres Boy, they say in wars
Tan sols hi ha tristeses, there is only sadness,
No s'hi guanya mai. No one ever win.
Damunt d'aquesta terra encesa Over this lighted land
Tot all• que ‚s feble everything weak
Vol ignorar els mals wants to ignore all diseases

I en Maurici va escoltar And Maurici heard
Per• segueix a terra sense fer-ne cas, but stays in land taking no notice,
PerquЉ uns altres li han dit tant because others said so much to him
Que la seva vida ‚s patir sota el fang that his life is suffer under mud

Recorda les raons que un dia Remember the reasons that one day
Varen canviar els signes changed the signs
D'aquell temps passat. Of that past time.
Ell ha marcat la teva vida He marked your life
Amb una ferida with a wound
Que tu has decorat you have embellished

I en Maurici va escoltant And Maurici keeps hearing
I pensa que ja sap and thinks he knows
El perquЉ dels mals. The cause to all diseases.
Per• se'n torna, I est... Dubtant, But he comes back, and is doubting
I altres veus and other voices
Ressonen tamb‚ al seu voltant. Echo too around him.

Vailet, no siguis anarquista Boy, don't be anarchist
I ves a la conquista(*) and go to conquest
De l'honor m‚s alt, of highest honor,
Que al teu costat tindr... S la for‡a cause you'll have the force by your side
Que ens porta a l'ordre that takes us to order
I ens permet la pau. And allows peace.

I en Maurici sap molt b‚ And Maurici knows very well
Que si nom‚s dubta poca cosa t‚ that if he just doubts he has little
En Maurici sap quЉ fer, Maurici knows what do to,
Trobar... Els companys he'll meet his fellows
I sortir... Al carrer. And will go out the street.

- 'conquista' (conquering) is wrong, it should be 'conquesta'.
- 'encesa' can mean 'lighted' or 'burning
