My Epitaph

If you don't question everything, you will know nothing and believe anything!

Bastille Day
William Dewey Loudermilk


Living in cell fifty-nine, living here until I die
it won’t be long with my death sentence 
for only trying to earn my pittance
we were so poor that we couldn’t take any more
stealing bread to stay alive for this crime I have to die
sleep tonight I don’t dare can you feel the tension in the air
the secret’s abound tomorrow there’ll be no crown
Heads will roll! Can you hear the guillotine call? 
Royal blood will fill the streets, Marie quiche the new Paris treat
on to Versailles and the Hall of Mirrors
knowing damn well that Louis fears us
Count de Money he tries to bribe, but pissboy cuts short his pride
the greatest sight i’ve ever seen the blade cutting through the queen
under the knife the King shall die a noble peasant will wear his hide
it could be hard and we might fail 
but we’d rather die and burn in hell
time will tell who will pay 
fighting forward we shall run the revolution has begun
Bastille Day, Bastille Day, Bastille Day, Bastille Day
Revolution, Revolution

And we will follow Napoleon until all of Europe we have won
then to the Giza plateau searching for what man used to know
he may be exiled, but it will only be for a little while
as we wait for his triumphant return 
because conquest is what we yearn
it could be hard and we might fail 
but we’d rather die and burn in hell
time will tell who will pay 
fighting forward we shall run the revolution has begun
Bastille Day, Bastille Day, Bastille Day, Bastille Day
Revolution, Revolution
