I stroke the blade with my hand
Acaricio la hoja con mi mano

The sharp edge cuts the skin.
El borde afilado corta la piel

Blood drips to the rain-wet sand
Gotas de sangre en la arena mojada por la lluvia

My journey can begin.
Mi viaje puede comenzar

Once a slave, but now I'm free
Una vez fui esclavo, pero ahora soy libre

My honor is restored!
Mi honor es restaurado

Once again, I ride the seas
Una vez mas, cabalgo los mares

Free at last, from whip and oar
Libre al fin, del látigo y el remo

I slide the sword into a sheath
Deslizo la espada en la vaina

The ocean god is hailed
El dios del océano es aclamado

And as we push out to the sea
Y como nos empujamos hacia el mar

We raise the rest of sails
Elevamos las harapientas velas

I've missed the breeze of my home shore

The frozen lakes and winter snow...
But now my dream starts to unfold.
Father, I'm coming home!
The storm devoured without remorse
And water crushed the rails
The ship was thrown back and forth
A strong wind ripped the sails
The icy waves embrace my skin
I am going numb
The endless ocean swallows me
This will be my hollow tomb
Won't feel the breeze of my home shore
Nor see the lakes or winter snow...
My hopeful dreams lie ripped and torn
Father, I die alone, I die alone!
