Lyrics

Children in pieces In Irish industrial schools Nuns called "mothers" And the Christian Brothers Kick the shit out of very frightened children

Judges and priests and Police and cardinals They look the other way When the weekend comes They'll make use of those

Children in pieces In Irish industrial schools Nuns called "mothers" And the Christian Brothers Kick the shit out of very frightened children

You say you wanna go home You say you wanna be left alone And so you turn to me... But instead of sympathy I find: My sentimental heart hardens My sentimental heart hardens "Get your hands off me Kid, you must be bad luck!" My sentimental heart hardens
