Katarungan


Canzone che parla delle persone ingiustamente incarcerate (Katarungan=Giustizia), durante il regime di Marcos, ben 11 anni di legge marziale, numerosi oppositori, tra cui Benigno Aquino furono arrestati.
Sa isang kulungang bakal ay
May taong malungkot, umiiyak
Ang tanong n'ya sa sarili ay
Kailan magigisnan ang liwanag
Malayo ang iniisip at
Nakakuyom yaring mga palad
Bakit daw s'ya nagdurusa
Sa kasalanang 'di n'ya ginawa

Kahapon lamang ay kapiling
N'ya kanyang asawa at anak
Namumuhay nang tahimik sa
Isang munting tahanang may tuwa
Ang kaligayahan ay pinutol
Ng isang paratang sa kanya
S'ya daw ang may sala sa isang
Krimen na 'di naman n'ya ginawa

Wala na bang katarungan ang
Isang nilalang na katulad n'ya
Ilan pang tulad n'ya ang magdurusa
Nang walang kasalanan
'Di ba't ang batas natin pantay-
Pantay, walang mahirap, mayaman
Bakit marami ang nagduru-
Sang mga walang kasalanan

Mga ilang araw na lang
Haharapin na n'ya ang bitayan
Paano n'ya isisigaw
Na s'ya'y sadyang walang kasalanan
Tanging ang Diyos lamang ang s'yang
Saksi at s'yang nakakaalam
Diyos na rin ang s'yang bahalang
Maningil kung sino'ng may kasalanan

Dumating na ang araw, hahara-
Pin na n'ya kanyang kamatayan
Sa isang upuang bakal na
Kay dami nang buhay na inutang
O, ang batas ng tao kung
Minsan ay 'di mo maintindihan
Ilan pang tulad n'ya ang
Magdurusa nang walang kasalanan

JUSTICE

In an iron prison
Someone is sad and crying
He asks himself
When will I see the light
Thinking deeply and
His hands are clenched
Why is he suffering
For the offense he didn't commit

Just yesterday he was
With his wife and child
Living in peace
In small home of joy
Happiness was cut
By an accusation
That it was his fault for
A crime he didn't commit

Is there no justice
For someone like him
How many more will suffer
That isn't guilty
Isn't the law equal
No rich nor poor
Why is that many are suffering
The innocent ones

In a few days
He will face the gallows
How will he shout
That he is innocent
Only God is his
Witness and knows
God will
Collect from the guilty ones

The day has come
He will face his death
In a steel chair that
Has claimed many lives
O, the law of man
Sometimes can't be understood
How many more will suffer
That isn't guilty
