PART TWO: RED DAWN

Our flag
The corporeal symbol of our voice
An embodiment of the trials endured
For the banal liberty of speaking our tongue

The red disc, the blood of our forefathers
We remember with the setting of the sun

The lush green fields
The verdant land, rife with soil rich
The trophy of their sacrifice

Now hear our voices
Without persecution, without fear
