Svegliatevi nel core
furie d'un alma offesa,

L'ombra del genitore
accorre a mia difesa,
e dice: a te il rigor
figlio, si aspetta.

Bestir yourselves within my heart,
furies of an injured spirit,
and take vicious revenge
upon a traitor!

My father's shade
rushes to my defence,
saying, "My son, 
retribution is expected of you.
