    About

    The battle of Rorke's Drift takes place in 1879 during the Anglo-Zulu war and might be one of the more well known last stands in history. A small mission station became an unlikely battleground when somewhere between 3000 and 4000 Zulu warriors attacked the just over 150 men strong British garrison on the 22:nd of January. The battle lasted into the next morning and the British who had barricaded themselves behind mealie bags, biscuit boxes and old furniture only lost 17 men.

    Lyrics

    News that came that morning told that the main force had been slain
    Chance for peace and justice gone and all talks had been in vain
    A prince had been offended and he has gone the path of war
    Now that 1500 men are dead and the Zulu's at the door

    Zulus attack
    Fight back to back
    Show them no mercy and
    Fire at will
    Kill or be killed
    Facing awaiting

    A hostile spear a new frontier the end is near
    There's no surrender
    The lines must hold their story told Rorke's Drift controlled

    Later on that fateful day as they head towards the Drift
    Stacking boxes fortify preparations must be swift
    Spears and shields of oxen hide facing uniforms and guns
    As the rifles fire echoes higher beating like the sound of drums

    Zulus attack
    Fight back to back
    Show them no mercy and
    Fire at will
    Kill or be killed
    Facing awaiting

    A hostile spear a new frontier the end is near
    There's no surrender
    The lines must hold their story told Rorke's Drift controlled

    1879 when a few held the line
    Back to back attack the dead are stacked
    Where a last stand was made and the empire saved
    Back to back attack the dead are stacked

    Zulus attack
    Fight back to back
    Show them no mercy and
    Fire at will
    Kill or be killed
    Facing awaiting

    A hostile spear a new frontier the end is near
    There's no surrender
    The lines must hold their story told Rorke's Drift controlled [X2]
