Skrewdriver – Old Albion lyrics
The scent of an English meadow wafts gently through the bars
The sounds of summer harvesting can be heard from afar
The beauty of old Albion, a beauty hard to beat
But the heart has been corrupted, by the changing power-seat


Will we stand and watch them taking our freedom away?
Will we stand and watch them taking our freedom away?

Our warriors are slandered, and thrown into their jails
And kept from their loved ones, in dungeons deep and stale

They say that self-defense is no offense, until the law starts with their lies
They'll send you down for protecting your own, already guilty in their lying eyes

Our hearts are full of love and pride, for England is our home
The hills and dales are in our souls, and the forests ours to roam
But now we lie back in our cells, and think of times gone by
We think back of our lives and homes, and the girls who wait and cry
