[man:]
"Senti, io esco... e cerco di arrivare fino al blocco 14, perché... è necessario. Ieri ho visto Paul e..."

[woman:]
"E la sua ragazza?"

[man:]
"Niente, non ce l'ha fatta, lei non ce l'ha fatta"

[woman:]
"Caspita"

[man:]
"Però comunque così prendo una... così la tuta protettiva... e spero che sia sufficiente"

[woman:]
"Solo la tuta protettiva, forse è meglio che prendi anche la maschera, cosa pensi?"

[man:]
"Okay, così parto ora"

[woman:]
"No, è meglio aspettare ancora un quarto d'ora, venti minuti prima di uscire, che faccia più buio"

[man:]
"Guardo fuori come stanno le cose"

[woman:]
"Guarda fuori adesso sì"
"Hai guardato fuori che cosa succede?"

[man:]
"Niente"

[woman:]
"Niente? Come niente, c'èqualcuno fuori?"
[man:]
"No, tutto uguale come prima. Sembra che nulla si sposti. In effetti vale la pena tentare. Dammela!"

[woman:]
"Sì, sì, va bene, te la porto, va bene, sì, sì, vado"

    General CommentIn the community of Vangelis fans it is well known that this song deals with Seveso disaster of 1976, a catastrophic industrial event on chemical plant in Italy, which resulted in numerous hospitalizations but luckily no human deaths, though a huge number of wild and domestic animals either died or was killed later to stop the chemicals from getting into the food chain.

    It should be known that current version of lyrics is incomplete. It only features spoken Italian parts, completely omitting the sung lyrics in the middle section of song, performed by Jon Anderson (of Yes and ABWH).

    TranslationAnd this was reported as pretty accurate translation of spoken Italian lines to English:

    Attention! Attention!
    All persons with children immediately go to shelter B37!
    Attention! I repeat! Attention! All families with children go to shelter b37!
    All families with children are requested to go immediately to shelter B37!
    Attention! Attention!
    Attention! Attention!
    I repeat! Al parents with children go to shelter B37!
    All families with children go immediately to shelter b37!
    Immediately to shelter B37!
    Immediately to shelter B37!
    Immediately to shelter B37!
    Immediately to shelter B37!
    Immediately to shelter B37!
    Immediately to shelter B37!
    Immediately to shelter B37!
    I repeat! Parents with children go immediately to shelter B37!

    ...

    [man:]
    "Listen, I go out... and I try to reach block 14, because... it's necessary. Yesterday I have seen Paul and..."

    [woman:]
    "And his girlfriend?"

    [man:]
    "Nothing, didn't make it, she didn't make it"

    [woman:]
    "Don't you say so"


    [man:]
    "But anyhow so I take a... so the protective suit... and hope it will be sufficient"

    [woman:]
    "Only the protective suit, maybe it's better you also take the mask, what do you think?"

    [man:]
    "O.K., so I leave now"

    [woman:]
    "No, it's better to wait a quarter of an hour, 20 minutes before going out, so it will be darker"

    [man:]
    "I look outside how things are"

    [woman:]
    "Yes look outside now"
    "Did you look outside what happens?"

    [man:]
    "Nothing"

    [woman:]
    "Nothing? What do you mean nothing, is there anybody out?"

    [man:]
    "No, everything the same like before. Seems nothing is changing. In fact it's worthwhile trying. Give it to me!"

    [woman:]
    "Yes, yes, all right, I'll bring it to you, all right, yes, yes, I go"
