"Viva La Revolution" as written by Peter Jonnathan Davison, Melvin Leroy Ellis, Michael Davison and Keith Warren....
Into the Dungeon with evil men
The people has risen we're free again
Come out of the closet
Come out of the hole
Come out of the woodwork
Come into the fold
Rebels and fighters, a license to kill
Unite with the bandits down from the hills
Open your windows
Open your doors
Open your minds
To a freedom of thought
Raise our voices, raise our flag
Smash the symbols of the life never had
Long live the symbols
Long live the scheme
Long live our hopes
Long live the dream
Dance in the streets at the carnival
Celebrate the victory now
Drink the wine from the rich man's cask
This revolution won't be the last

    General Commentthis song has no real historical or life meaning and for the adicts is very out of character. but this song is great to dance in the pit to and nothing beats seeing them live it is always a life changing experiance

    General CommentYou've all comprehensively missed the point. Read the last line, then read Animal Farm, and explain in 100 words or less what happens at the end of a revolution.

    General Commentin an interview they asked Monkey what the meaning behind the song was and his response was like all the freedom and partying one feels when they rise up in a revolution but eventally all the hype will die out but with the song he wanted to stay at that climax during the revolution when everyone is happy!. hence... VIVA LA REVOLUTION!!
