Lyrics

Children in pieces
In Irish industrial schools
Nuns called "mothers"
And the Christian Brothers
Kick the shit out of very frightened children

Judges and priests and
Police and cardinals
They look the other way
When the weekend comes
They'll make use of those

Children in pieces
In Irish industrial schools
Nuns called "mothers"
And the Christian Brothers
Kick the shit out of very frightened children

You say you wanna go home
You say you wanna be left alone
And so you turn to me...
But instead of sympathy I find:
My sentimental heart hardens
My sentimental heart hardens
 "Get your hands off me
  Kid, you must be bad luck!"
My sentimental heart hardens
