English term or phrase: I wonder if the dead are disturbed by the sound of a one way pass to eternity?
I'm not counting on an answer for this question. I know it's more than 10 words, but I hope someone can give it a shot. I suppose this is just an odd rhetorical question. I really don't know how else to explain the context of it.
Sumi
utinam scirem si iussu resonanti ut sine reditu ullo in aeternitatem abirent mortui turbarentur.
Explanation:
utinam scirem si iussu resonanti ut sine reditu ullo in aeternitatem abirent mortui turbarentur.

A paraphrase of your sentence, approximately meaning: "If only I knew whether the dead are disturbed by the resounding command that they depart for eternity without ever returning."

The notion of a "one-way pass", based on the whole construct of public vehicular transportation systems, cannot be reproduced literally in ancient styles. So my rendition gets at the general sense.
