Lyrics

The Joy brings many things it cannot bring you joy sons of mothers huddle here man and boy

1850 swung the doors and human sewage swept inside where victims speak in whines and where the hardened cried

I was sent here by a three-foot half-wit in a wig I took his insults on the chin and never did I flinch

A swagger hides the fear in here by this rule we breathe and there is no one upon this earth whom I’d feel sad to leave

You see we all lose we all lose

What those in power do to you reminds us at a glance how humans hate each others guts and show it given the chance

We never say aloud the things that we say in our prayers 'cos no one cares

Many executed here by the awful lawfully good but the only thing that makes me cry is when I see the sky

Brendan Behan's laughter rings for what he had or hadn’t done for he knew then as I know now that for each and every one of us we all lose rich or poor we all lose rich or poor we all lose.
