Vientos del pueblo

WINDS OF THE PEOPLE

Lyrics: Miguel Hernández
.
Music and arrangements: Ebri Knight

People of the bad weeds
want to put yokes upon you.
Yokes which you must leave
broken upon their backs.

Who has never put neither yokes nor hindrances
upon the hurricane,
nor who stopped the lightning
prisoner inside a cage?

My teeth will be clenched
and my beard decided.
If I die, may I die
holding my head up very high

Men who in the thick of the roots,
like gallant roots,
you go from life to death,
you go from the void to the void.

Dead and twenty times dead,
the mouth against the grass.
Twilight of the oxen,
Dawn is breaking.

My teeth will be clenched
and my beard decided.
If I die, may I die
holding my head up very high

Winds of the people carry me,
winds of the people drag me,
they spread my heart
and aerate my throat. 
Singing I wait for death,
for there are mockingbirds singing
on top of the rifles
and in the midst of the battles.
If I die, may I die
holding my head up very high.

We shall prevail
because we are titans,
smiling to the bullets
and shouting "Forward".
