Christy Moore - Burning Times

In the cold of the evening, they used to gather
Di malam yang dingin, mereka biasa berkumpul
Neath the stars in the meadow, circled near the old oak tree
Di bawah bintang-bintang di padang rumput, berputar di dekat pohon ek tua
At the times appointed by the seasons
Pada waktu yang ditentukan oleh musim
Of the earth, and the phases of the moon
Dari bumi, dan fase bulan

In the center, often stood a woman
Di tengah, sering berdiri seorang wanita
Equal with the others, respected for her worth
Setara dengan yang lain, dihormati karena nilainya
One of the many we call the witches
Salah satu dari banyak yang kita sebut penyihir
The healers, the teachers, of the wisdom of the earth
Tabib, guru-guru, dari kebijaksanaan bumi

And the people grew in the knowledge she gave them
Dan orang-orang tumbuh dalam pengetahuan yang dia berikan kepada mereka
Herbs to heal their bodies, smells to make their spirits whole
Herbal untuk menyembuhkan tubuh mereka, mencium aroma roh mereka
Hear them chanting healing incantations
Dengarkan mereka mengucapkan mantra penyembuhan
Calling for the wise ones, celebrating in dance and song
Menyerukan orang-orang bijak, merayakan tarian dan nyanyian

There were those that came to power, through domination
Ada yang berkuasa, melalui dominasi
They were bonded in their worship of a dead man on a cross
Mereka terikat dalam penyembahan mereka terhadap orang mati di kayu salib
They sought control of the common people
Mereka mencari kontrol dari orang-orang biasa
By demanding allegiance to the church of Rome
Dengan menuntut kesetiaan kepada gereja Roma

And the Pope, he commenced the inquisition
Dan Paus, dia memulai inkuisisi
As a war against the women, whose powers they feared
Seperti perang melawan para wanita, yang kekuatannya mereka takuti
In this holocaust, in this age of evil
Dalam holocaust ini, di zaman kejahatan ini
Nine million European women, they died
Sembilan juta wanita Eropa, mereka meninggal

And the tale is told, of those who by the hundreds
Dan kisah itu diceritakan, tentang mereka yang oleh ratusan
Holding hands together, chose their deaths in the sea
Berpegangan tangan bersama, memilih kematian mereka di laut
While chanting the praises of the Mother Goddess
Sambil melantunkan pujian Ibu Dewi
A refusal of betrayal, women were dying to be free
Penolakan pengkhianatan, wanita ingin bebas

Now the earth is a witch, and we still burn her
Sekarang bumi adalah penyihir, dan kita masih membakarnya
Stripping her down with mining, and the poison of our wars
Melucuti dia dengan pertambangan, dan racun perang kita
Still to us, the earth is a healer, a teacher, and a mother
Masih bagi kita, bumi adalah tabib, guru, dan ibu
A weaver of a web of light, that keeps us all alive
Sebuah penenun jaring cahaya, yang membuat kita tetap hidup

She gives us the vision to see through the chaos
Dia memberi kita visi untuk melihat melalui kekacauan
She gives us the courage, it is our will to survive
Dia memberi kita keberanian, itu adalah keinginan kita untuk bertahan hidup
