01) Tomorrow belongs to Me

The sun on the meadow is summerly warm, the stag in the forest runs free. But gathered together to greet the storm-Tomorrow belongs to me! Tomorrow belongs to me!

The branch on the linden is leafy and green, the Rhine gives it’s gold to the sea. But somewhere a glory awaits unseen-Tomorrow belongs to me! Tomorrow belongs to me!

The babe in his cradle is closing his eyes, the blossom embraces the bee. But soon says the whisper, arise, arise-Tomorrow belongs to me! Tomorrow belongs to me!

Now Fatherland, Fatherland, show us the sign, your children have waited to see. The morning will come when the world is mine-Tomorrow belongs to me! Tomorrow belongs to me!


02) Phoenix Rising

I see a phoenix arising-Like a phoenix from the ashes raised! Sweeping evil before him-Marching on towards better days!

Marching to the cities, marching! Marching to the towns, marching! With your banners before you, marching! Spread what you say, and spread it all around now! Rising, phoenix rising!

There’s job to be done now-Don’t back down from the coming fight! We’re gonna lighten our load now and drag us back from the endless night!

Marching to the cities, marching! Marching to the towns, marching! With your banners before you, marching! Spread what you say, and spread it all around now! Rising, phoenix rising!

Now many flags are unfurling and standing up to the tyranny! Men and women with a common bond-Tell each other "You can lean on me now!"

Marching to the cities, marching! Marching to the towns, marching! With your banners before you, marching! Spread what you say, and spread it all around now! Rising, phoenix rising!


03) Gone with the Breeze

You’re gone with the breeze, just like the leaves on the trees. Gone are the times, with your family, with your family... You left life behind, you knew they had your death warrant signed, but there was no way, that you would compromise, no compromise.

You’re gone with the breeze, but you’ll always be there on our minds! You’re gone with the breeze, just a memory of those times! You’re gone with the breeze, yeah you left a lotta people that loved you! You’re gone with the breeze, but we’ll remember you!

You stood against lies, and you would never hide. You stood face-to-face, with the enemy, with the enemy... Against all the odds, danger’s path you trod. You knew it could only end in tragedy, yeah, in tragedy...

You’re gone with the breeze, but you’ll always be there on our minds! You’re gone with the breeze, just a memory of those times! You’re gone with the breeze, yeah you left a lotta people that loved you! You’re gone with the breeze, but we’ll remember you!

All ended in devastation, for a man who loved his nation. Another warrior they took away, yeah, they took him away... But in our hearts, he did not die, forever more his flag will fly! One day the land will stand in his memory, Robert Matthews!

You’re gone with the breeze, but you’ll always be there on our minds! You’re gone with the breeze, just a memory of those times! You’re gone with the breeze, yeah you left a lotta people that loved you! You’re gone with the breeze, but we’ll remember you!

You’ve gone with the breeze, but we’ll remember you! Yeah, you’ve gone with the breeze, but we’ll remember you! You’ve gone with the breeze, but we’ll remember you!


04) The Red Threat

This is a warning, against a red day a’dawning-With communists trying, to get into our head! Take over the Media, with Marx they force feed ya-Come on all you Whites, fight the threat that is Red! Come on all you Whites, fight the threat that is Red!

They encourage such mixing, to us it is sickening and they say, for the Third World, we must provide bread! Just for one occasion, let’s think of our own nations-Come on all you Whites, fight the threat that is Red! Come on all you Whites, fight the threat that is Red!

Come on all you Whites, fight the threat that is Red! Come on all you Whites, fight the threat that is Red!

We’ll fight in the cities, we’ll fight in the country and we’ll fight, the Red peril, our pride we’ll not shed! For the strength of White nations, will be our salvation-Come on all you Whites, fight the threat that is Red! Come on all you Whites, fight the threat that is Red! Come on all you Whites, fight the threat that is Red! Come on all you Whites, fight the threat that is Red!


05) The land is Ours

I feel a peace as I walk the leafy lanes-Look out over them hills, boy it looks like rain. See the distant mountains, with the storm clouds high above-This is my land, my country, the place I love.

We ain’t gonna like it if they take our land away-Looks like history repeating itself again. We ain’t gonna like it if they take our land away-If they steal our heritage, somebody’s gonna pay.

My father worked this land as his father did before and they’d turn in their graves, if they knew what was in store. Someone came from some big city, and tried to buy our farm-Threw our life’s work out to rot, they’ve done a lot of harm.

We ain’t gonna like it if they take our land away-Looks like history repeating itself again. We ain’t gonna like it if they take our land away-If they steal our heritage, somebody’s gonna pay.

The pride in our community, the media’d love to kill-They hate to see our unity, intact against their will. Tried to take our livelihood, tried to take our guns-If we left ‘em take our pride, then surely they have won.

We ain’t gonna like it if they take our land away-Looks like history repeating itself again. We ain’t gonna like it if they take our land away-If they steal our heritage, somebody’s gonna pay.


06) Stand by your Own

The storm clouds are gathering, the Liberals are bleating-The vultures are looking down on the land of South Africa. The traitors are crowing, ‘cos they see the Whites falling-They lie in their papers, about apartheid’s evil way.

Stand by your own, that’s the best way! Stand by your own, from the ruins it came! Stand by your own, the only sane cry! Stand by your own, Red Terror will die!

False prophets are moaning, and the bankers are groaning as the leaders of the weak. White west prepare to sell-out the white man again-We sit here in Europe, and wonder what the future holds. The murdering ANC, walk free around our countries.

Stand by your own, that’s the best way! Stand by your own, from the ruins it came! Stand by your own, the only sane cry! Stand by your own, Red Terror will die!

As we look to the future, and hope that our kin survive-All we can do now, is pray for them all...

Stand by your own, that’s the best way! Stand by your own, from the ruins it came! Stand by your own, the only sane cry! Stand by your own, Red Terror will die!

Stand by your own, Red Terror will die! Stand by your own, Red Terror will die!


07) The green fields of France

Well, how do you do young Willie McBride? Do you mind if I sit here down by your graveside? And rest for awhile in the warm summer sun-I’ve been walking all day, and I’m nearly done.
-
I see by your gravestone, you were only nineteen when you joined the great call-up in nineteen sixteen-And I hope you died quick, and I hope you died clean, or young Willie McBride, was it slow and obscene?
-
Did they beat the drums slowly? Did they play the fife loudly? Did they play the death march as they lowered you down? Did the band play the Last Post and chorus? Did the pipes play the Flowers of the Forest?
-
Did you leave a wife or a sweetheart behind? In some faithful heart is your memory enshrined. Although you died back in nineteen-sixteen-In that faithful heart are you forever nineteen.
-
Or are you a stranger without even a name? Enclosed and forever behind a glass frame. In an old photograph, torn, battered and stained and faded to yellow, in a brown leather frame.

Did they beat the drums slowly? Did they play the fife loudly? Did they play the death march as they lowered you down? Did the band play the Last Post and chorus? Did the pipes play the Flowers of the Forest?
-
Well the sun, now it shines, on the green fields of France as the warm summer breeze, that makes the red poppies dance. And look how the sun shines from under the clouds-There’s no gas, no barbwire, there’s no guns firing now.
-
But here in this graveyard that’s still no-man’s land-The countless white crosses stand mute in the sand. To man’s blind indifference to his fellow man-To a whole generation, that was butchered and damned.

Did they beat the drums slowly? Did they play the fife loudly? Did they play the death march as they lowered you down? Did the band play the Last Post and chorus? Did the pipes play the Flowers of the Forest?
-
Young Willie McBride, I can’t help wondering why do those that lie here know why that they died? And did they believe when they answered the call-Did they really believe that this war would end war?
-
The sorrow, the suffering, the glory, the pain-The killing and dying were all done in vain. Young Willie McBride, it all happened again-And again, and again, and again, and again...

Did they beat the drums slowly? Did they play the fife loudly? Did they play the death march as they lowered you down? Did the band play the Last Post and chorus? Did the pipes play the Flowers of the Forest?


08) Who Cares?

A phone is on the table, just along the hall-But due to lack of food and drink, you cannot move at all. The pension that they give you, can’t stock you up for long and in your heart, the anger grows, ‘cos you know that they done you wrong!

What about the wars that you fought? For the peace that you sought? But for you, my old man, just see what peace has brought-The peace has brought you nothing!

The light around you darkens, as you weaken every hour and never in your long hard life, have you ever felt so sour. You’ve got to see a doctor, or you’re going to fade away-You’ve got to see somebody, or you won’t last another day!

What about the wars that you fought? For the peace that you sought? But for you, my old man, just see what peace has brought-The peace has brought you nothing!

The pills they will not dull the aching in your head-You try once more to reach the telephone, but you cannot leave the bed. Then you fall back, the pain has gone, and you see your life’s last sight-A bare stark wall, so very small, and you say your last goodnight!

What about the wars that you fought? For the peace that you sought? But for you, my old man, just see what peace has brought-The peace has brought you nothing!


09) White Blues

Everybody gets the, gets the blues some time! Everybody gets the, gets the blues some time! And the government listens to everybody’s, ‘cept mine!

If you belong to a minority, well then that’s alright! If you belong to a minority, well then that’s alright! But if you’re just a simple British person-You’ll have to stand and fight, for what’s right!

And no one ever asked us, exactly what we think-No one ever asked us, exactly what we think! As far as the powers are concerned-They’ve let the country sink!

Well I just hope we don’t lose, things that once were ours! Yeah I just hope we don’t lose, things that once were ours! I think we better stand up, and rock ‘em in their ivory towers! Yeah I think we better stand up, and rock ‘em in their ivory towers-I said I think we better stand up, and rock ‘em in their ivory towers…


10) Suddenly

We live in changing times-When certain thoughts are now a crime! Power flows through an evil pen and freedom’s light in growing dim!

One day if suddenly, I’m forced to take my leave-Will you still carry on, with the things that we believe? One day if suddenly, they take my life away-Will you still be fighting to win a bright new day?

The people who’ve stood against us-They seem to be above the law! With the power to listen into private moments in our lives-And the power to come kick down your door!

One day if suddenly, I’m forced to take my leave-Will you still carry on, with the things that we believe? One day if suddenly, they take my life away-Will you still be fighting to win a bright new day?

Our strength has come from ideals many years’ old-A strength that has survived within our blood! A strength our foe has recognized, and sworn to drag it down-He wants to drag our people through the mud!

One day if suddenly, I’m forced to take my leave-Will you still carry on, with the things that we believe? One day if suddenly, they take my life away-Will you still be fighting to win a bright new day?


11) Something to believe In

However hard you may think you are-Something comes along that’ll touch you! It may be the death of somebody close-But any way it’ll find you!

Everybody, everywhere! Everybody needs, something to believe in!
However high your barriers are-Something will arrive that will climb them! For no one can survive while standing all alone-We all need somebody, to help us carry on!

Everybody, everywhere! Everybody needs, something to believe in!
They say a problem shared is a problem halved and as time passes by it will prove it! We all need somebody to lend a helping hand and when the chance arrives just grab it!

Everybody, everywhere! Everybody needs, something to believe in!


12) The Snow Fell

He sat in a room, in a square the color of blood-He’d rule the whole world, if there was a way that he could. He’d sit and he’d stare at the minarets on top of the towers-For he was the beast, as he hatched his new plans to gain power.
-
As the snow fell, covering the dreams and ideals. As the snow fell, freezing the blood and the wheels. As the snow fell, they had to keep warm for survival. As the snow fell, and defeated the beast’s only rivals...
-
They took the old roads, that Napoleon had taken before-They fought as the forces of light against the darkness in a holy war. One day they were looking out in the sunshine on the cornflowers-The next day they were freezing to death in the snow and the ice cold showers.

As the snow fell, covering the dreams and ideals. As the snow fell, freezing the blood and the wheels. As the snow fell, they had to keep warm for survival. As the snow fell, and defeated the beast’s only rivals...
-
Then came the deadly road back on the steppes of their retreat-The cold racked their bodies, but worse was the pain of defeat. And people who had hailed them once now turned and looked away-These people now knew that the beast was on his way.

As the snow fell, covering the dreams and ideals. As the snow fell, freezing the blood and the wheels. As the snow fell, they had to keep warm for survival. As the snow fell, and defeated the beast’s only rivals...
-
You finally came back to the borders of your Fatherland-Now enemies came, traitors everywhere at hand. Many people had fought and died, knowing that they had to win-And still it sickens my heart to see the picture of the Red flag in Berlin!

As the snow fell, covering the dreams and ideals. As the snow fell, freezing the blood and the wheels. As the snow fell, they had to keep warm for survival. As the snow fell, and defeated the beast’s only rivals...
