Fortress

FORTRESS (Australian RAC)

Southern Stars above my head.
My homeland, the ground beneath my feet.
Yet our blood flows from a northern land,
The essence of our young country!

Little more than two hundred years,
We have walked upon this ground,
But the sacrifice of so many sons
Commands our sworn duty to keep it ours!

(chorus)
Ancient descent to a land anew,
Southern birth-Northern soul!
A spirit forged under a sky so blue,
Southern birth-Northern soul!

Can you hear the beat of the drum?
The star of the southern must rise once more!
And blood will stain on the wattle,
This time the battle to be fought upon your soil!

Only from our past can we claim a future
And we must fight like never before.
The finest hour for the sons of the cross
Will be the end of peace and we march to war!

(chorus)

Above: Fortress

There’s no peaceful way out of this mess. We’ve offered solutions, we’ve done our best! We’re attacked from all sides, our voice drowned out! The flame now burns a beacon in the crowd!

Within the hearts of all true men, a pride that can’t be tamed. A rite of passage begins, a holy war we’ll wage!

In the fires of our rage!

Government oppression, our people are led. Like lambs to the slaughter, we fight for freedom and bread. Our struggle reborn, anger set alight. The white resistance, blood and soil-Our sacrifice!

Smouldering resentment grows higher than the flame. It burns away all forgiveness, our whole world set ablaze!

In the fires of our rage!

Inflamed by the white heat of hate, no-one untouched in the fires of rage!

Do you swing to the right or swing to the left? We ask not, you’ll swing by the neck, there’s too much to stake. They’ll be no recompense for our children’s future, our races existence!

They brewed a melting pot that
scalds us with the shame,
that we allowed this to happen
Now we’re forced to fan the flames…

…of the fires of our rage!

SKREWDRIVER

Look to the future, outlaw
The storm is coming now, race war
The skies darken as night falls
The battle’s coming now, your race calls

We’ll carry on the fight ’til the day we die
Against the people that would kill us for the flags we fly
We wont surrender, we wont give in
We’ll fight the fight and we will win, now!

(chorus)
Stand up beside us and we’ll have our day
Stand up against us get out of our way

The tensions rising, the flood grows
The banks are bursting, overflow
Here it comes now, tidal wave
God help our people now, mass graves

Join the battle, join the few
Stand up for your race and your nation too
We know the traitors are in our midst
But now they’re running like the others did

(chorus)

People to the left, people to the right
People in the middle that don’t wanna fight
Traitors fight against us, showdown
People in the middle get knocked down

We fight for freedom, we fight to win
The colour of our uniform, is the colour of our skin
We’ve got the power, we’ve got the pride
When we get the unity, it’s alright!
