lyrics

The night they shot that poor child down
The cheers rang out as the glass rained down.
Not one witness, or empty casing found
Along the rows of shops and bars
The shutters they stayed down.
They say on any given night
The craic here’s hard to beat
There’s no craic dying on a dead end street.
Once a year now on that day
Family comes, leaves flowers and prays.
Later drunk men kick those wreaths away
“What the hell they doin comin back again?”, they say.
They say a warmer welcome, in this world,
You’ll never meet
Cold blows the ashes down a dead end street.
So..’War is over, if you want!’ was just some rock star’s
PR stunt?
Was ‘Peace and Love!’ then really just a front
For all the hate we hold beneath
that no-one dares confront?
They say its great to see
This place back on it’s feet,
But what have we learned?
Empty words and still we burn.
Are we so far down we can’t get turned
On this dead end street?
