"Thousandfold" as written by and Christian/henzi Glanzmann....
Sprinkled by the trappings
Of words that make the outlines
Blur on the showplace of made history
The folk is willed
To parrot the dishes up tale
The lure of a higher meaning

Cheat to had to create
An enemy stereotype
To receive your absolution
A frothy poor excuse for your foray
To disengage from deeps
Of your encumbrance

Behold
All our gold
Thousandfold
Bereave me
Declined
Truths ensign
Forever mine
Bereave me

March in with ten legions
Whilst the crucial weapons not the pilum
But the feather held in your hand
Penned in blood
Your tall-tales rule the forum
Altering it into the battlefield

I, the spectral guise
Evoking these barring fears
Pestering your conscript fathers
I smile at my demise and while I die
I cherish the roots of my perseverance

Behold
All our gold
Thousandfold
Bereave me
Declined
Truths ensign
Forever mine
Bereave me

Behold
All our gold
Thousandfold
Bereave me
Declined
Truths ensign
Forever mine
Bereave me

    General Comment100% exact lyrics, straight from the booklet.

    As for the meaning:

    Chrigel Glanzmann, the leader of the band and the author of the lyrics:
    "The song is actually about the character of Orgetorix, who was a Helvetic warrior. We know him from Ceasar's book about the Gallic war and according to the offcial version Orgetorix became kind of an usurper and he was put to trial and commited suicide in the end. As we know today this so-called "official version" according to Ceasar is in wide part of it very political propaganda and so, of course, we want to question it. In our version of the story Orgetorix actually did not commit suicide but was basically killed by the Romans."
