As I gazed from afar I saw nothing but horizon For my eyes were closed From the beauty of my nation

I never refused to see The bountiful wealth of my country But big businesses robbed us with impunity Leaving us into deep poverty

Liberalized mining hoards our mineral wealth Trees were cut down, our mountains languish The people are displaced, their homes perished In search for gold, mining corporations see us as filth?

In the name of greed, the environment wails I see my people stood up without a fail But the government remains deaf, mining prevailed What future will this bring to the children of today?

Now I can't see the beauty of my nation All I can witness is the struggle against oppression In defense of the national patrimony against aggression Together with my people we will march for liberation.#
