Never again shall we stand alone without justice or reason,
No more shall we rely upon the common social cohesion,
>From now on we shall reform the world for us and our descendants:
>From this day forward we shall create a world of independence.
We shall sow the seeds of life, we shall carry out our own pursuits,
We shall watch the tree as it grows and we shall reap it of its fruits,
No more shall we adhere to laws or rules with which we don't comply,
Never again shall we forsake individuality's "I".
Never again shall we submit to every fear we are force-fed,
No more shall we idly accept order and let ourselves be led,
>From now on we shall surpass legislation and mass government,
>From this day forward we'll have liberty and live our lives content.
We shall break the chains of charity, we shall quell slavery's binds,
We shall get beyond any ignorance and we shall use our minds,
We shall earn our freedom, we shall earn our lives --earned with our good
We deserve the right to create: we deserve our independence.
