‘Sunday Bloody Sunday (30, January 2022)’

I can’t believe the news today
I can’t close my eyes and make it go away
How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long? How long?
‘Cos tonight
We can be as one, tonight, tonight.

Broken bottles under children’s feet
Bodies strewn across the dead-end street
But I won’t heed the battle call
It puts my back up, puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday
Alright, let’s go

And the battle’s just begun
There’s many lost, but tell me who has won?
The trenches dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters 
Torn apart

Sunday, bloody Sunday
Sunday, bloody Sunday

How long, how long must we sing this song?
How long? How long?
‘Cos tonight we can be as one, tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight 
Tonight, tonight 

Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe the tears from your eyes
Sunday, bloody Sunday 
Sunday, bloody Sunday 
Wipe the tears from your eyes 

Here at the murder scene 
The virus of fiction, reality TV 
Why so many mothers cry
Religion is the enemy of the Holy Spirit guide 
And the battle just begun 
Where is the victory Jesus won
