The Bastille was broken;
Out emerged warriors of freedom,
Chanting ‘liberty, equality, fraternity’.
Terror has struck human hearts!
Humans live half-dead,
And sleep half-alive;
Fear is rampant here and there,
Fear must be trampled, everywhere.
Let us strive to reach heights, phenomenal,
Making lives sensational,
Dreams come true,
It takes dreams to make the truth happen.
God, grant us fairy wings,
A nectar-soaked soul to break unholy rings,
Let us harness our creative sensibilities,
Bring to suppressed people - an opportunity,
To live with dignity.
Happy must be young minds,
Eternal joy is what it must find.
Happiness is full of sensibility,
Sorrow must become impossibility.
We will reach our destination,
Worthy of inspiration!
Some men can chain bodies,
Who can chain the spirits?
The spirits are always free!
They will fly to the destination of their dreams,
Screaming with maddening joy,
Celebrating with stupefying fervour,
Who can stop the march to freedom?
The Bastille will once again be broken!
