Skrewdriver – Sick Society lyrics

You risked your life for this country when you were young
Never questioned orders that they gave
Because the love of the Red White and Blue was in your heart
And I never thought I'd ever see the day, when I'd hear you say
Now look at a sick society
Look back in time
Now look at our sick society
Who commits the crime
You did your time for king and country overseas
Spent years to keep this nation free
Now you're not allowed to walk the British streets today
Now you're fighting against a foe you cannot see
When you want to march in a democratic fashion
Through the streets of the country that you love
Then you're struck down by a mob of screaming monkeys
Raining in, with bricks from above
We'll remember the things that you have done
Against all odds you would not run
We'll remember the life you gladly gave
Put an English rose upon your grave
Now you have died whilst fighting for your country
Fighting against an enemy that's within
Now I'll make a promise to your memory, Albert Mariner
We'll keep on fighting until we win, we'll never forget you
