    esconde la vergüenza que el luto de su padre clama en él

    Hello everyone, this phrase is from the song "Hamlet" by Tierra Santa:

    Se finge loco y en su mente oculta
    un odio eterno hacia su madre y su rey
    bajo la pena esconde la vergüenza
    que el luto de su padre clama en él


    And my attempt to translate it:

    He acts insane but in his mind, conceals
    eternal hatred of his mother and his king
    beneath the sorrow hides the shame
    that mourning his father cries out within him (?)


    I also tried a looser translation, "beneath the sorrow hides the shameful cry of mourning for his father", but I'm not sure about that either.

    I look forward to any suggestions. Thanks!

    Perhaps "beneath the pain / sorrow hides the shame that his mourning for his father provokes."

    I like that, I hadn't thought of it quite that way. Thanks!
