Lyrics: Skrewdriver Warlord Cd

Posted by Label56 in Lyrics

One of my favorite Skrewdriver cd`s is easily Warlord both musically and lyrically. As for Skrewdriver as a whole,  I`ve always said that Ian Stuart`s lyrics were ingenious. For the most part they are lyrics that address political and social issues as well as honor the history of our people, but they are written in a way that can reach our people as a whole without being overtly “racist” and alienating. A few lyrics are posted below from the Warlord cd

Out In The Cold (Big Deal)

Out in the cold
Out in the cold now

The powers say to us now do as you’re told
Or you could find yourself out in the cold
They say they’ll use their agents to grind us down
They have their puppets everywhere as we have found

(chorus)

Out in the cold
Kicked out of the fold, yeah, now
Out in the cold
Yeah, but we’ll never sell-out to you
Out in the cold

They use paid traitors to air their views
They lied and they cheated and they use a ruse
They have their methods, yeah, spreading lies
They’ll never crush our spirit, it will never die

(chorus)

I’ve never seem then use such dirty tricks
They’re trying to use a law against guitar licks
And if the law ain’t legal well they say “so what”
It’s just another erosion in our nation’s rot, now

(chorus)

Out in the cold
Out in the cold now
Out in the cold
Out in the cold

Their Kingdom Will Fall

They came upon our people in the dead of the night
Death and destruction in the morning light
Jail for our fighters, bondage for the strong
They’ve had their own way for far too long

(chorus)
Their kingdom will fall
Their kingdom will fall

They put the people into debt and slavery
It’s not the way a healthy nation should be
They censored what we said, they censored what we thought
But now is the time that we cannot be bought

(chorus)
Their kingdom will fall
Their kingdom will fall

They tried to put us on a highway to hell
But now we’ll wake our people with the toll of the bell
Our land will be ours, our people will be free
Now we’re on the road to recovery

Soar Aloft

The country’s rugged heathland
See the nation’s sea and sand
This our people’s pride and joy now
Yeah, this our motherland

(chorus)
Soar aloft you Golden Eagle
High above the sea and sand
High above the dark oak forests now
Hail to you my motherland

Old ancient oak trees
And dark beech groves
Greening birch trees
Frame the meadow-land, soar aloft now…

(chorus)

Farmers and towns-people, of true blood stock
Always hail now to their homeland, in loyalty, soar aloft now
Here motherland, always be our watchword
Our loyalty to the homeland, in all times to come, soar aloft now…

The Warrior`s Song

Returning home from the battlefields
Take your seat in the hall of kings
Celebrating recent victories
Look to wars the future yet may bring

The warrior is he, fighting for victory!
The warrior is he, fighting for victory!

(chorus)
Let’s drink to our mighty warriors
Let’s drink to the northern winds
Let’s drink to our women’s beauty
Let’s drink before the war begins.

When you’re young you chose the lifestyle of the warrior
To live and die to keep your people free
You had good times, you had bad times, never did a thing by halves
Your life is built around honour and loyalty

The warrior is he, fighting for victory!
The warrior is he, fighting for victory!

(chorus)

Let’s drink to the coming battle
Let’s drink to the blood-soaked fields
Let’s drink to the thrill of combat
Let’s drink as our foes all yield

(chorus)

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

(chorus)
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

(chorus)

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

(chorus)
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?
