I heard the sound of marching feet, but none that march for me.
The banners, flags and speeches are but cheap and tawdry dreams.

Long live independence! [x4]

The loves we shared we tore apart, and tossed aside like kisses
now stand we tall in ashes of our vainglorious times.

Long live independence! [x4]

There comes a time in every man's life when he must pick a side not stand aside,
and hide his face in shame. There comes a time in everyman's life when neither abstinence, nor decadence, wir, or wealth or elegance will do, or the whiplash of leaders can stay his righteous hand.

There comes a time in everyman's life like for Charlemagne or Caesar, Jean Paul Sartre or Nietzsche, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Primo Levi, or Ferdinand Celine.

When enough is enough, and the waiting must end, and the end must be brought to a head, (so we sing):

Long live independence! [x8]
