Track Name: 45 Years
Rocksteady beat gets to your soul
you raise your voice with the strength of oi!
Streets and pubs with the lads
the only people that you trust
they will be there for anything
Love your crew, hate society
Fighting racism, we've always known
is the right way, we go on and on

Listening to those old reggae songs
rhythm'n'blues or soul
you remember the roots of something
you live for

For 45 years, no racism in here
Skinheads don't fear
For 45 years, no racism in here
Skingirls don't fear

No flag takes a places in my heart
There's no colour for which I'll die
Bastards made it clear since day one
One law for them, another one for us
We can loose our freedom but not our dignity
Hate the coppers, ACAB
This is our lovely way of life
Worldwide skinheads unite and fight!

Listen to the politicians
see them spread their lies
But we won't ever let them fool us
We've had enough

For 45 years, no racism in here
Skinheads don't fear
For 45 years, no racism in here
Skingirls don't fear

Since 1969, music, laughs and fights
Skinheads for life
Since 1969, friendship fun and pride
Skingirls for life
Track Name: 1886
Only the workers can protect themselves
And a look at history helps us remember everyday
A great tale of strength, honor and fighting
Took place in Chicago streets

They gave their lives so we could have more freedom
8 martyrs punished without any cause or reason
So our tribute is to continue their fight
We defend what's ours, we defend what's right

They fought, they died
With their heads held high
Their story and their power
Will guide our steps to fight
Confront their guns
With our stones and sticks
We can change history as in 1886

8 men were judged for claiming to be anarchists
First they took your life, now they're exploiting your memory
But a flame so bright will never cease to give us light
Even if they kill us, we will never die

1 bomb, 2 shots, death for both, 8 men being sentenced
But with such strong ideals, greeted death with a smile on their faces
So our tribute is to continue their fight
We defend what's ours, we defend what's right

They fought, they died (...)

"We are sentenced to death for anarchy and as It is our believes that are being judged I will shout it out loud. I'm an Anarchst! Anarchy is a hostile doctrine opposed to brutal force, this criminal production system and to the unjust distribution of wealth. You and only you are the agitators and conspirators. I despise you, I despise your order, I despise your law, your force and your authority. Hang me now!" (Extract of the speeches given right before being hanged by the 5 men sentenced to death for the Haymarket events)
