4FT FINGERS - Irish Eyes

rate me

For one hundred years my land's been town in two<br>

Bigoted people think that they are fighting for you<br>

A coded warning, a distant shooting<br>

I've never seen an army act quite like this<br>

A son without a father, another widow made, playing god<br>

They banded together in 1916<br>

Defending our island from the British regime<br>

The people they loved them for fighting their cause<br>

Where are the heroes now?<br>

But every day we take one step closer to a time in our lives<br>

Where we can't remember hate<br>

Our lives all the time moving where we're not afraid of you.<br>


Innocent children caught up in a war<br>

They've lived with bombing and terror since they were born.<br>

Their cause is replaced by greed<br>

They keep all their guns to help them fight for their drugs<br>

Politicians they tug at the threads of our peace<br>

Till nothing's left but a divided race<br>

Irish eyes aren't smiling anymore.<br>
