One day, the eyes of the suffering

will judge our conscience

and their tears will wash away our ignorance!

 

Oh you multinationals of greed,

the politicians of weapons and blood,

oh you the priests of corruption,

one day you will meet these eyes in the

very mirrors of your souls,

and on that day you will bow to these eyes.

 

 

 

―あなたを見つめる目―

ある日、苦しみの中にある人々の目が

私たちの良心を裁き、
彼らの涙が、私たちの無知を洗い去るだろう!

ああ、あなたがた多国籍者と同胞よ、

ああ、あなたがた腐敗した聖職者たちよ、

いつの日か、あなたはこれらの目を、

あなたの魂のただなかに映し見るだろう。

その日、あなたは

これらの目に頭(こうべ)を下げるだろう。
