Attero Dominatus Album Cover

Back In Control


Sent to the islands to secure what is ours
Marching ashore in the cover of night
Hide until dawn and attack in the twilight
Shake them awake with the thunder of guns

Orders from the iron maiden, get the islands back
Failure will not be accepted, call for artillery strike, launch attack

We are Back in control, force them to surrender
Take what is ours, restore law and order
Back in control, push them further out to sea
Falklands in our hands, back under British reign

Push them back further and out from the islands
Into our fleet that will stop their retreat
Mark their positions and call in the airforce
Harriers and Vulcans strikes at our command

Lyrics:Brodén / Sundström
Historic Fact
The Falkland Islands are a group of islands in the South Atlantic Ocean. Although they are a British Overseas Territory, this is contested by Argentina, who also lay claim to them. On 2nd April 1982, Argentina invaded and occupied the islands. Three days later, on the 5th April, Britain sent a Naval Task Force to reclaim the Falklands. Following a conflict which lasted 74 days and in which 649 Argentine military personnel, 255 British military personnel and 3 Falkland Islanders died, Argentina surrendered on 14th June 1982 and the islands were returned to British control.
