Bring me my burning red chariot of fire
and the mighty pards of Bacchus, the god!
Let me have my shield, sword and throwing spear!
I have had enough, let me tread alone
down this treacherous path of war, tonight!
Have I not been waiting hard and too long,
for Liberty to come the easy way
but Liberty is a bloodthirsty soul
and at his swollen feet I hope to make
a dark crimson sea of blood, deep and wide!
Have I not cast all my dreams far away
because human beings should not dream in chains!
So, here I am off to seize both night and the day,
for the sake of Liberty, to drive them insane!
