Howard McGillin:
God has smiled upon you this day
The fate of a nation in your hands
And blessed be the children
Who fight with all our bravery
Till only the righteous stand

You see the distant flames
They bellow in the night
You fight in all our names
For what we know is right
And when you all get shot
And can not carry on
Though you die
La Resistance lives on

You may get stabbed in the head
With a dagger or sword
You may be burned to death
Or skinned alive or worse
But when they torture you
You will not feel the need to run for
Though you die
La Resistance lives on

Shelia Broflovski:
Blame Canada
Blame Canada
Because the country's gone awry
Tomorrow night these freaks will fry.

The men of South Park:
Tomorrow night
Our lives will change
Tomorrow night
We'll be entertained
An execution
What a sight
Tomorrow night

Satan The Dark Prince:
Up there, there is so much room
Where baby's burp and flowers bloom
Tomorrow night up there is doomed
And so I will be going soon

Terrance and Phillip:
Shut your fucking face uncle fucker
You're a boner biting bastard uncle fucker

Phillip:
Looks like we may be out of luck

Terrance:
Tomorrow night we're pretty fucked

Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski, Eric Cartman:
Why did our mothers start this war
What the fuck are they fighting for
When did this song become a marathon

Satan The Dark Prince, Shelia Broflovski:
I want to live up there
When Canada is dead and gone there'll be no more Celien Dion

Howard McGillin:
They may cut your dick in half
And serve it to a pig
And though it hurts you'll laugh
You'll dance a dickless jig
But that's the way it goes
In war you're shat upon
Though you die
La Resistance lives on

    General CommentFunny song -- a combination of all of the songs in the movie. It actually sounds likr a parody or lose imitation of "One Day More" from Les Miserables, but I could be wrong...

    General CommentThe arrangement of this song is really, really well-done. People don't give them enough credit for all their talent.

    and I almost forgot... one more person from the band Offspring
    Dexter Holland.
    Anyways here's the um.. medley so hope you'd enjoy it


    Maynard James Keenan:
    God has smiled upon you this day
    The fate of a nation in your hands
    And blessed be the children
    Who fight with all our bravery
    Till only the righteous stand

    You see the distant flames
    They bellow in the night
    You fight in all our names
    For what we know is right
    And when you all get shot
    And can not carry on
    Though you die
    La Resistance lives on

    You may get stabbed in the head
    With a dagger or sword
    You may be burned to death
    Or skinned alive or worse
    But when they torture you
    You will not feel the need to run for
    Though you die
    La Resistance lives on

    *"Jerk Off" Plays*
    Brittany:
    *Spoken but p**sed off*
    Blame Miley
    Blame Miley
    Because the sl*t's gone awry
    Tomorrow night that s**t will *starts to scream* die.

    Kenny:
    Someone told me once
    that there's a right and wrong,
    and that punishment
    would come to those
    who dare to cross the line.

    But it must not be true
    for jerk-offs just like you.
    Maybe it takes longer to catch a total @$$hole.
    but I'm tired of waiting.

    Brittany:
    *Screaming* DIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! B**CH!

    John L. Cooper, Jen Ledger:
    Tomorrow night
    Our lives will change
    Tomorrow night
    We'll be entertained
    An execution
    What a sight
    Tomorrow night

    James Hetfield:
    Up there, there is so much room
    Where baby's burp and flowers bloom
    Tomorrow night up there is doomed
    And so I will be going soon
    HEY!!

    Maynard and Dexter:
    Shut your f*cking face uncle f8cker
    You're a b*ner biting b*stard uncle f*cker

    Maynard:
    Looks like we may be out of luck

    Dexter:
    Tomorrow night we're pretty f*cked

    Stan Marsh, Kyle Taylor, Eric Cartman:
    Why did our mothers start this war
    What the f*ck are they fighting for
    When did this song become a marathon

    *"Lateralus" plays*

    Kenny:
    *Quietly* Black then white are all I see in my infancy
    Red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me, let's me see

    As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
    Drawn beyond the lines of reason
    Push the envelope, watch it bend

    James Hetfield and Maynard James Keenan:
    I want to live up there
    When Obama is dead and gone. And even though, there'll be no more Barack Obama!!

    Maynard (reprise):
    They may cut your d*ck in half
    And serve it to a pig
    And though it hurts you'll laugh
    You'll dance a d*ckless jig
    But that's the way it goes
    In war you're shat upon
    Though you die
    La Resistance lives on
