Seven Days Torture

Recorded at Shay’s Studio, April 2005

There’s a balanced view on the Nine O’Clock News
It’s the BBC – it must be true
Sinn Féin are on News At Ten
It’s lip-reading time again.

British Justice is the best in the world
Thon Carmen Proetta is quite a girl
Soldier F can fair handle a gun
Who needs a jury when you’ve got The Sun.

So open up your eyes
You can see right through the lies
No matter what they say
It’s seven days torture on the PTA.

When you stand up for democracy
You have to take some liberties
Silence politicians, censor the press
A license to kill for the SAS.

And the Branch open mail and they tap the phones
It’s nice to know that we’re not alone.
They protect us from the commies and micks
They should lock them all up like the Birmingham Six.

Chorus

The Europeans have got a bloody cheek
You can’t get confessions in less than a week.
But she won’t give in, she’s gonna fight
Their European Court of Human Rights.

And that Cathal Daly is such a nice man
I’d like to kiss him on the hand.
John Hume talks nothing but sense
In English, Irish, Latin and French.

Chorus
