"Tegernakô" as written by and Christian Glanzmann....
A folk of cheeriness and strength
content with the life they lived
So-called barbarians yet with eyes cleered
for what they truly need and what damn not

free and plain

Barbarians, farmers and savages
counted as ignorant and uncivil
But told to bow before the emperors throne
they were at least not venal

True and plain freedom - of this natures clan
True and plain pride - of this celtic clan
True and plain dignity - Tegernako!

Not for riches, not for sway
not for economic benefits
met they the emperors requirements
for freedom can't be bought

    General Commentyou're probably right, the songs stick to a common theme, but the music is amazing, so does it really matter?
