Skrewdriver – Flying The Flag lyrics

We live on the streets now, we fight for our lives
We fight for the flag now, we're all willing to die
We don't run from anyone, we never back down
If we see a Red flag, we tear it to the ground

Flying the flag, we fight the Red peril
Flying the flag, we'll fight 'till we die
Flying the flag, we'll never give up now
Flying the flag, we hold our heads high

Survival is our life, we live from day to day
You never know who you're going to meet in our money making state
Everybody lives here now, the dustbin of the world
An unwelcome pool of labor, with our promises of pearls

(Repeat Chorus)

For so long now, we've heard their lies
When will they heed our people's cries
When our people take that bitter pill
If the Reds don't kill you, the rich man will.

Take it from me now, we haven't got long
Just follow your feelings, the media's always wrong
They're making up stories, to cover themselves
They're lining they're pockets with the nation's hard earned wealth

(Repeat Chorus)

Flying the flag
Flying the flag
Flying the flag today
Flying the flag
Flying the flag
Flying the flag okay!
