Skrewdriver - Sick Society (Albert Mariner R.I.P.)* lyrics

You risked your life for this country when you were young

Never questioned orders that they gave

'Cos 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 a sick society, who commits the crime?

You did your time for King & Country overseas

Spent years to keep this nation free

Now you're not allowed to walk the British streets today

And you're fighting 'gainst a foe you cannot see, and I hear you say

(Repeat Chorus)

When you wanna 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 with bricks from above, and I hear you say

(Repeat Chorus)

Middle Eight:

We remember the things that you have done

Against all odds you would not run

We remember the life you gladly gave

Put an English Rose upon your grave

(Repeat Chorus)

Now you have died, whilst fighting for your country

Fighting 'gainst an enemy that's within

Now I'll make a promise to your memory, Albert Mariner

We'll keep on fighting, until we win

Yeah, we'll never forget you

(Repeat Chorus) x2

And what happened to the inquiry?

* Albert Mariner was a pensioner killed by anti-NF protesters in Tottenham. The then Home Secretary promised a full inquiry into his death. It was never held.
