This song is by Dan Bull and appears on the album Generation Gaming VI (2015).

Original video
An eagle soares as the streets all crawl with people
Stores and debris on the floor
We sweep up in awe at the cathedral walls
This city's laws are in need of rehaul
Freedom calls, soldiers amassing
And stacking their ammunition deep in the courts
Stand in a rank v. tattered banners and flags enacting a massacre
The assassins see this and leap from the walls
Unsure what the August Decrees did at all
Are you sure the Bastille couldn't fall?
We should rally morale and proceed with the war
Locks are chopped, the drawbridge drops
The raucus flock till they're reaching the courts
Ignoring the shots meat for the slaughter
Bleed on the floor just reeking of gore
Thanks a lot to the sans-culottes
For yanking off the breeches they wore
Breaching the walls and windows
Leap to the floor and the smokescreen it before
Defeating the bourgeoisie with a claw
I'm sure we've seen this before
Better catch and dispatch him or that
Matchstick'll blast this bastion to ashes
That sort of action's a burning mistake
Chat to my back 'cause I'm turning away
The earliest grave is the turn of your fate
Courtesy of the dear Third Estate

Alouette, gentile alouette
Alouette, je te plumerai
Je te plumerai la tête
Je te plumerai la tête
Et la tête, et la tête
Je te plumerai la tête

The blade of the guillotine drops
I look at my watch then put it in my pocket and hurry
I've got to run in and stop my unlucky target succumbing to harm
And crumbling under the chopping block
While onlookers watch in numbness and shock
Back to the backstreets and the cobble
No palace these chaps dream of a hovel
Run around the action, gunpowder blasting
Push past the crowds and leap up a shop wall
Two hops and I'm on the rooftop
Move to a new spot and then I'll soon drop
Assess the scene eagle-eyed
Who needs to bleed, who needs to die?
You need to read between the lines
And move the bleating sheep aside
This is the reason why I made the decision to leave Versailles
Grim Reaper, unsheathe my scythe then cleave
Aand leave deprived of the need to breathe or even be alive, at least
You see, I need to find Elise
'Cause she gives me a reason to be a lease on life as we unite

Alouette, gentile alouette
Alouette, je te plumerai
Je te plumerai la tête
Je te plumerai la tête
Et la tête, et la tête
Je te plumerai la tête
