lyrics

Where the white rocks make no sound
Isandlwana laid em down!
laid em down! laid em down!
Isandlwana laid em down
Thirteen hundred left in the ground
Isandlwana, laid em down!
laid em down! laid em down!
Isandlwana laid em down!

The eyes of God witnessed the drama
Under the eclipse at Isandlwana
Where Zulus fought until the Devil fell
and had his soul sent back to hell
armed invaders, with their guns
And all got laid down one by one
Encircled and annihilated
By a nation underestimated at the
Ntshingwayo Khoza's command
Heaven’s Heroes with spears in hand
Left 1300 predators in all
to be judged under God's law now
On that hill, all that's left, at the
where invaders took their last breath
are piles of white rocks
that make no sound
At Isandlwana where they laid em down!

(Chorus)

First on the planet
Undeniable fact and they can't stand it
So punks with guns hunt spears and shields
David vs Goliath is what this reveals
Men verse beast the war’s at hand
until the beast lays down
in the presence of Man
In eighteen seventy nine it was God’s Plan
to leave the 24th regiment in the sand
under God’s reflection of the future and past
the sun rose for us first
and will set on us last
now you can take what you will from the cream of the Earth
but what the Devil destroys
will be redeemed in the birth
like three days later to a Christian - listen
You can’t kill what God has intended
To live here forever
so when it was all said and done here
You might of won some
but they just lost one here
Where the white rocks make no sound
Isandlwana laid em down!
laid em down! laid em down!
Isandlwana laid em down
Thirteen hundred left in the ground
Isandlwana, laid em down!
laid em down! laid em down!
Isandlwana laid em down!
