"Kingdom Come Undone" as written by and Christian/glanzmann Glanzmann....
While the noose is tightening
You still sit here on your fleeting thrones
So busy with your own little feuds
And your own blinker crowns

But we all are Gauls
And we are free at least by now
So take the fucking plunge
Rise and unite

Arise!
United we'll stand!

This is V for vengeance
This is V for vehemence
This is V for victory
This is V for Vercingetorix

Let them feel the Gaulish violence
Impetuous furor
The bite of our blades
Let them see our freedoms ensign
Let us raise our clenched fists in pride

What benefit will it be
To save your crowns but forfeit your freedom at last?
We are one folk and we can make a stand
So lay down your crowns now
Rise and unite

Arise!
United we'll stand!
Bestir!
Wake up!
As one we'll prevail!

Arise!
United we'll stand!
Bestir!
Wake up!
As one we'll prevail!

This is V for verdict
This is V for valour
This is V for venture
This is reVolt
This is kingdom come undone

    General CommentFrom the bonus DVD, section "A CLOSER LOOK AT THE LYRICS":
    "A song about Vercingetorix - a Gaulish warrior who definitely went down in history!
    During the Gaulish war he tried to unite the diverse tribes of Gallia (who partly even were at enmity) under one banner and so repel the Roman invasion and end it once and for all.
    The lyrics portray a passionate speech of Vercingetorix how he probably could have held it in front of assembled rulers of different Gaulish clans."

    Personally I'll just add that this venture failed miserably - Vercingetorix finally gave up and surrendered to the Romans in order to protect his people. He was publically executed in Rome.

    Is it just me or is there some "V For Vendetta" influence visible? ;)
