Liberty

TROUBLEMAKER
We want to get rid of the Guillotine
And abolish pain somehow
But to make a world free of tears
We build these scaffolds now

OFFICER
Come dry your tears and pray explain
How can we abolish pain?
If we don't build these scaffolds now
These instruments of injustice
These tools of execution

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
We've given to the Guillotine
More blood than you have ever seen
What end could justify these means?

OFFICER
We've given more of our blood

MALE CHORUS
We've given

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
We've given more of our blood

MALE CHORUS
We've given

OFFICER
We've given more of our blood

MALE CHORUS
More of our blood

CHORUS
We've given, we've given
More blood than we could turn to love

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & OFFICER
Than we could ever hope to turn to

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
Love

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & OFFICER
More blood, than we could
Ever hope could turn to love

CHORUS
We've given, we've given
More blood, than we could turn to love

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
Come angles of mercy
Come doves of peace
Shine a light on all these warring clubs and cliques

OFFICER
The jackal and hyena who prowl these city streets
Would turn in their own mother for a little extra meat

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
From the piles of dead the Republic comes to life
Her mutilated body reeling like a drunken fishwife
Gives birth to the future

OFFICER
Gives birth on the street

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST, OFFICER & CHORUS
Impure and exultant she gives birth to the dream

RINGMASTER & MARIE MARIANNE
When the dream

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
When the dream

RINGMASTER & MARIE MARIANNE
Is understood

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
Is understood

RINGMASTER, REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & MARIE MARIANNE
That no man should live in chains
That the great and the small are equal after all

RINGMASTER
And in the bushes where they survive
The winder hail and the slaughter
The birds were attacked by the dogs and the rats
Hiding round every corner

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
When you're a rat caught in a trap with not even cheese you get mean

CHILDREN'S CHORUS
But we are not rats

OFFICER
When you're a rabid dog you need to spread your disease

CHILDREN'S CHORUS
But we are not dogs

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & OFFICER
When you're a man and they say you should be an angel

CHILDREN'S CHORUS
We're not even human

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
When you're less than nothing

OFFICER & MALE CHORUS
Less than nothing

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST, OFFICER & CHILDREN'S CHORUS
Less than nothing as sure as the sparrows sing

MARIE MARIANNE
If wishes give us power to make it all come right
If we could walk through mirrors
If we could touch the light
We'd shrug off our illusions and what was left would be
The strength and bravery
To feel what we feel
And be what we'd be...

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
Of all the woman none can hold a light to liberty

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & CHORUS
With wings to fly and eyes to see

TROUBLEMAKER & CHORUS
She's the one who loves us
The one that we adore
When you're laughing with the sun out
Or lying wounded in a dug out

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
With wings to fly and eyes to see
Freedom is her name

OFFICER
She makes a fearsome ally
If you stand up with no shame

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
But liberty is nothing if you love her on your knees

OFFICER & MALE CHORUS
And liberty can't hear you when you're hanging from an olive tree!

RINGMASTER
If we don't founder in pursuit luxury
In forgetfulness of others needs
And in the depths of our own believes

MARIE MARIANNE
If we don't hide in that solitary dream
Safe in our shells
In respect for the powers that be
And in fear of our selves

CHILDREN'S CHORUS
If wishes could come true
If mirrors could be seen through
No more mystery
Only the strength and bravery
To help one another
To see what its like to be...
Happy!
No bird needs to be afraid
To leave his nest and to parade
Up and down the boulevard all day,
All day, all day!
No bird must be greedy
And eat up all the seed
'Til every bird has had enough,
Every bird
Be he rich or be he poor
Be he great or be he small
Every bird, every bird, every bird, every bird
Will go to the ball

RINGMASTER
If this life's a journey we take

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
If the secret the sharing cake

MARIE MARIANNE
Holds the key, holds the key to joy

RINGMASTER
And unlocks these doors inside

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
Where Republic must surely hide

MARIE MARIANNE
If wishes really could come true

RINGMASTER
If we see through the illusions

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & CHORUS
And abide by the constitution

MARIE MARIANNE
There'll be human rights for everyone

CHORUS
Unique and universal

COMPANY
For everyone
Under the sun!

RINGMASTER, REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST, MARIE MARIANNE, TROUBLEMAKER & OFFICER
If we are not lost in these towers of ivory
In respect for the strong
And in fear of our need to belong
The promise of Republic lies within
«a Ira

COMPANY
«a Ira!
