"Your Gaulish War" as written by and Christian Glanzmann....
Fraught with so much greed, imperial needs.
Satisfy your hunger for might and blood!
With greedy claws the eagle flew
Leaving chaos and widows on his hunt.

We do not accept to bear the half-moon on our feet
Nor to bow, to the laurel wreath!

"Haec terra mea est" - the urge of your own want
spurring the horse towards the devastating aint.
It's the pauper that accrouches - bared indigence
Your need should cost unnumbered lives!

might and riches you have sought,
willing to pay the price in human lives!

False and fallacious, killing and omnivorous
depleting the value of human life!
But we always knew: You came with fortune
and one day you'd come with steel!

We did not accept to bear the half-moon on our feet!
A tort that pays it wage death?

Well, how does it feel, the blood on your hands?
I hope you had a ball in effacing lives!
Well, how does it feel, the blood on your hands?
I hope the gold you've won bestows your delight!

...standing at the top of all the ruin you have left...
watch our wives remigrate with crooked backs...

    General Commentit probably means that they don't want to sacrifice their lives for a land that isn't theirs...

    Song MeaningClearly it's a song from the view of a Helvetian, who's land has been conquered by Rome. Any student of history knows exactly what this is about. The Gaulish Wars vs Rome.

    General CommentIt's about the Romans conquering Gaul (France.) The laurel wreath and the eagle are both symbols of ancient Rome. Verse three mentions the Roman tactic of paying the Celtic tribes to fight each other to weaken them.
