Terroristic russia is bombing Ukraine now.

Ask to switch them off SWIFT, payments, exports, EVERYTHING!

Giorgio Gaber "Dove andate?" lyrics

Translation to: EN

1
Dove, dove andate?
E perché le vostre spade sono state sguainate,
se nel fodero eran già riposte?

Voi credete che sia stato poco
il sangue versato in terra ed in mare
per trascinare il nemico in catene
e per causare le vostre rovine.2

Nemmeno i lupi, nemmeno i leoni,
infieriscono sugl’animali della loro stessa specie.
Che cos’è che spinge voi?
Che cos’è che vi trascina
a placare il desiderio della violenza?

Nessuno viene a darmi risposta,
nessuno può sul suo viso nascondere la paura.
Siete spinti da un tragico destino,
e i fratelli uccidono i fratelli
fin da quando la Terra fu macchiata dal sangue di Remo.3

Dove, dove andate?
E perché le vostre spade sono state sguainate,
se nel fodero eran già riposte?
Voi le avevate soltanto nascoste.

Where, where are you going?
And why have your swords been unsheathed,
if they were resting inside their scabbard?

You think it has not been much,
the blood spilt on land and sea
to drag the enemy in chains
and to cause your destruction.2

Not even the wolves, not even the lions,
are so merciless towards the animals of their own species.
What is driving you?
What is dragging you
to quench your desire for violence?

Nobody comes to answer me,
nobody can hide the fear on his face.
You are pushed by a tragic fate,
and brothers kill brothers
since the time the Earth was stained by Remus’ blood.3

Where, where are you going?
And why have your swords been unsheathed,
if they were resting inside their scabbard?
You had just been hiding them.
