Roger Waters - Adieu Louis for You It's Over lyrics

MARIE MARIANNE Adieu Louis, for you it's over Too many carpenters and bookkeepers and gardeners Gave their ordinary lives to be free On the battlefields of the Tuileries REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST To be King is a sacred trust But you betrayed us Poor King Louis We must take your life Clean the slate, start anew Poor Louis, it's over for you TROUBLEMAKER The time for grief is not yet here It's to build a world without tears That we toll the funeral bell And shed our precious blood Poor Louis and your precious blood as well CHILDREN'S CHORUS Poor King Louis, you'll soon be dead Poor King Louis, far from your bed TROUBLEMAKER Far from your bed CHILDREN'S CHORUS Life must always end to start anew REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST Poor King Louis It's over for you QUEEN It's always the terror you can rely on To eat its way into your heart Like rust and there to spy on The blood, the blade, the speeches made That mingle in your very entrails
