1.Tomorrow Belongs To Me

The sun on the meadow is summery
warm and

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 and

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 and

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

2. 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 a 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

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”

3. 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

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

4. 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

5. 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, and 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

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’ll 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

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

6. 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 ways

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

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

7. The Green Fields of France

Well, how do you do young Willie
McBride?

Do you mind if I sit here down by your grave side?

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 1916

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 1916

In that faithful heart are you forever 19

Or are you a stranger without even a name?

Enclosed and forever behind a glass frame

In an old photograph, 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 these 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?

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?

8. 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

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 dullen,
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

9. 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?

10. 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…

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

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

verybody

Everywhere

Everybody

Needs, something to believe in

12. The Snow Fell

He sat in a room, in a square
the colour 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

and the snow fell, freezing the blood and the wheels

and the snow fell, they had to keep warm for survival

and 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 sleet and the ice
cold showers

As the snow fell, covering the
dreams and ideals

and the snow fell, freezing the blood and the wheels

and the snow fell, they had to keep warm for survival

and 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 many people who had hailed them once now turned and looked
away

These people now knew that the beast was on its way

As the snow fell, covering the
dreams and ideals

and the snow fell, freezing the blood and the wheels

and the snow fell, they had to keep warm for survival

and 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

Still it sickens my heart to see the picture of the Red flag in
Berlin

As the snow fell, covering the
dreams and ideals

and the snow fell, freezing the blood and the wheels

and the snow fell, they had to keep warm for survival

and the snow fell, and defeated the beast’s only rivals
