about

A song about the Catholic church and all the damage they've done to Irish society

lyrics

You controlled this country for many long dark years
You maintained an empire built on shame and fear
You were the moral authority, telling us about right and wrong
I can't believe the irony,lokk at what was going on

For all your talk of morals you were the ones without them
You can stuff your sermons now 'cause no-one gives a fuck about them

Slave labour in the Magdalenes, abuses in religious schools
How could an entire country have been taken for fools
Of course you had your allies in the law and politics
Who let you abuse your power, well it makes my stomach sick

There should be a reckoning, make the Catholic clergy swing
Line them up against the wall, and everyone responsible

Mumble weak apologies to your victims in defense
Refuse to do the decent thing and offer recompense
I know if I had my way I would take your last cent
And give it to those people, I'm sure you'd then repent

You claimed the keys for Heaven and the keys for Hell below
If Heaven's full of you lot, I know where I'd rather go
You were getting away with raping little kids
And telling ordinary people to be ashamed for what they did
“It's a sin to have sex if you're not married, it's worse if you are Gay”
But systematically abusing children in your eyes is ok...
