lyrics

This Divided Kingdom

This smoke stained decor hasn’t been changed for 30 years
Amongst show band memorabilia & empty cans of Russian beer
Pictures of my sweetheart still hang upon these shabby walls
But she is just a shadow in this grey suburban sprawl
This use to be our castle but now it’s dusty dark and damp
All the windows smashed and the doors & sills are rotten
The cheques we sent back fueled their economy
But the emerald isle has forsaken & forgotten us

Coming here was our biggest mistake
Caught in a loop & we cannot go forward
Lost is a memory of her embrace
Praying better days are coming fast towards us

Once we were in such demand on these sites around the city
when we were handsome & our bodies were much stronger
but now we are a by-product of this divided kingdom
Now our backs are broke and we can work no longer

Coming here was our fatal mistake
every day perpetual torture
lost in a memory of yesterday
praying better days are coming fast towards us

And now the only way we can ever catch that boat
is if they send us back in a wooden overcoat

Coming here was our only mistake
Caught in a loop and we cannot go forward
Lost in a memory of her embrace
Praying better days are coming fast toward us
Praying better days are coming fast towards us
Praying better days are just around the corner
