Et Diuen Que Hi Ha Llibertat / They Tell You That There Is Freedom - Poem by Xavier Panades I Blas

They tell you that there is freedom (original in Catalan below)

Nine of the night, in our village
There is not spirit, thereis not garbage
Nor lights of colors, not even a fly,
There is not anybody
There is not anybody
I am nobody

You do not agree with the situation
You go out in the streets, shout to everybody
You can moan, you can complain
Thre is freedom
There is freedom they say
There is freedom

You continue feeling emptiness
There is not fight that continues
Constant Coolness in your heart
Feels the world all dead

Small onions cost a euro
Roasted Chicken food of rich man
Cow's Milk at price that scratches
There are not more wages
There arenot more wages
I have no more wages

 Children who can not read
Children floured that drink wine
Absurd TV fire in the Montseny
There is no future
There is no future
I do not have future

You ask yourself the value
Of shouting in freedom
Of all social troubles
If you cannot change the following day

Et diuen que hi ha llibertat

Nou de la nit, al nostre poble
No hi ha esperit, no hi ha brossa
Ni llums de colors, ni una mosca,
No hi ha ningú
No hi ha ningú
No soc ningú

No estàs d'acord amb la situació
Surts als carrers, crides a tots
Pots gemegar, pots queixar-te
Hi ha llibertat
Hi ha llibertat et diuen
Que hi ha llibertat

Continues sentint el buit
No hi ha lluita que continuï
Fredor constant al teu cor
Sens el mon tot mort

Cebes petites costen un euro
Pollastre rostit menjar de ric
Llet de vaca a preu que esgarrapa

No hi ha mes sou
No hi ha mes sou
No tinc mes sou

Nens que no poden llegir
Nens enfarinats que veuen vi
Televisió absurda foc al Montseny
No hi ha futur
No hi ha futur
No tinc futur

Et preguntes el valor
De cridar en Llibertat
Tots el mals socials
Sinó pots canviar l'endemà.
