Soothsayers (Canto XX) Lyrics

8. Soothsayers (Canto XX) (4:33)
down the bridge
eyes to the plain
all, crying face and feets stumbling backwards

Dante, walking on a bridge, sees damned With their face torn backwards as counterpass. This horror hurts him to tears
not human
pity forced tears out my heart
facing the horror
i was touched

who are you, to cry on
those lost souls, sinners who
in their life played on others ?

Virgilio tells Dante not to cry, because those damned deserve the pain
you are right
but what I see
glancing in the dark, is pure cruelty

Cannot stand!
Whatever the sin,
all of this is far
from justice

Dante however can’t stand the sight of those inhuman Creatures, who were human beings
don't ever dare to doubt
you're a merely mortal
and not allowed to discuss
the divine judgement given

Virgilio reproaches him, remembering not to discuss God’s judgement
No one can discover the future
reading the vast constellations
only god
set the divine rules of fate

Here are fortunetellers, who try to foresee the future, but only God can: thus condemning them to hell
and in this circle are comndamned
those who looked too much far before him
and now they're forced forever just look back
as counterpass! adulterating holy laws
and justifying the lies of the lords
that's all,we walked away
