English term or phrase: "We need to hack off our chains, and this often leaves..."
Any suggestions for the translation of this sentence? The second part is what I find more difficult!

"We need to hack off our chains, and this often leaves raw and exposed tissue and bones"
soleil
Spanish translation:Necesitamos cortar nuestras cadenas a hachazos, lo que..."
Explanation:
a menudo deja tejido y hueso al descubierto y en carne viva"
To hack and chains? Need an axe at the very least (cortar a hachazos); raw tissue and bones: raw here is "en carne viva".
Anyway, hope what you translating doesn't get worse than this subject-wise. Cheers and luck :)

Explanation:

Es lo que alcanzo a ver estando ahora sí que sobre la respuesta de
Paul Roigé (o sea que fabriqué esto a partir de su respuesta, como se puede ver).
