New song: "The People Together Shall Change the Gate Forever"

Commissioned by the Campaign to Elect Ulder Ravengard

Every political campaign needs a great theme song. This one is inspired by the defiant folk songs I used to hear the grizzled old sailors from Amn sing when they were in port in Caer Westphal. With my crew and my family both missing, it is comforting to be reunited at last with the vihuela my father left me. It is as if I am whole again for the first time since being separated from Los Libertadores.

Much as it shocks me to say it, Ulder's political awakening seems genuine, and this bill he is announcing will be a great boon for the people of Baldur’s Gate — and, of course, a golden opportunity to perform in front of a crowd of thousands of cheering Baldurians!

THE PEOPLE TOGETHER SHALL CHANGE THE GATE FOREVER

Arise and sing! The people of the Gate!
The time is ours, no longer shall we wait!
Advance and fight for all that’s true and right
And soon they’ll see our song belongs to ev’ryone who
Works and toils to bring a better world.
Ulder’s decree will make us truly free.

The people together shall change the Gate forever!
The people together shall change the Gate forever!

Arise and march! We never will relent
Until we have a People’s Parliament!
Four councilors and they shall all be ours.
No more will we be ruled by patriars who do not
Heed our call: the Gate belongs to all.
Ulder’s decree will make us truly free.

And now all my brothers and sisters in the struggle
We fight for our city as in the Time of Troubles!


[FLUTE SOLO during chant]

The people together shall change the Gate forever!
The people together shall change the Gate forever!
The people together shall change the Gate forever!
The people together shall change the Gate forever!

Four councilors and they shall all be ours.
No more will we be ruled by patriars who do not
Heed our call: the Gate belongs to all. 
Ulder’s decree will make us truly free.

The people together shall change the Gate forever!
The people together shall change the Gate forever!
The people together shall change the Gate forever!
The people together shall change the Gate forever!
