Lyrics
Come with me. Let us climb the volcano.
Break through the fog, history is bubbling there.
Morazon y Marti and all you brave people
Gambling with death for our freedom

We tried to get away. It was the 14th of May,
My man taken away with his thumbs tied.
I wept for him in my silence,
My youngest son in my arms.
When the soldiers came, I played dead,
Afraid my baby would cry.

I was hiding in the river for a long time.
My wet body is the earth,
Wounded mother earth,
Oozing tenderness from a gaping wound.

The soldiers do not see me
Nor the gringo who counts the dead,
Nor the yankee pilot in his gunship overhead.
They cannot see the guerilleros
Disguised as ancient sentinels.

With the woman of Sumpul let us climb the volcano.
Break through the fog, history is bubbling there.
Morazon y Marti and all you brave people
Gambling with death for our freedom
