lirik lagu bobby sands mp – 47 black


my name is bobby sands, mp
born in the city of belfast
divided by religion
i grew up fast

i was stabbed and i was spat upon
my family run out of its home
there was only one solution
turn the whole system upside down

but the system had other ideas
i got lifted for carryin’ a gun
in a trial without a jury
i got fourteen years from the judge

screws beat me regularly
but they couldn’t break me because
i had the love of my comrades
and a burnin’ faith in my cause

still i left a girl outside pregnant
married her while on remand
now i got a son and a pain in my heart
when he doesn’t recognize his old man

your soul’s on ice oh oh oh oh
but they can’t stop the desire
to break on out oh oh oh oh
when your heart is on fire

we wouldn’t wear their convict clothes
so they stripped us to the bone
threw in some threadbare blankets…

and when they jeered us about our nakedness
as we slopped out down the halls
we wouldn’t come out of their prison cells
we smeared sh*t on their prison walls

stuck in an eight foot concrete box
with a bible, a mattress
and the threat of violence every day…

can i make it through these fourteen years
will my son remember my face
i don’t blame her for the separation
but for christ’s sake let him keep his name

your soul’s on ice oh oh oh oh
but they can’t stop the desire
to break on out oh oh oh oh
when your heart is on fire

five simple things we ask of them
five simple things denied
but thatcher will not compromise…

i ask my mother’s permission
to finally break her heart
we have come to a decision
…hunger strike

three comrades starve behind me
i pray to god that my
death will lead to compromise…

i can no longer see your face
my bones break through my skin
i’m goin’ back to belfast city
you can’t cage my spirit in

your soul’s on ice
but they can’t stop the desire
to break on out
when your heart is on fire

change
i remember you back in 1992
when they were putting us down
trying to tramp us into the ground
you exploded like a flame in the night
with a righteous indignation
told us “everything gonna be alright”

change come slowly like the ocean
but it keep on comin’ nonetheless
take my hand, oh dear companion,
we may not find happiness
but peace and then some real contentment
and a measure of social justice
oh change come slowly like the ocean
but they can’t stop the tide
and they’re never ever goin’ to stop us

they’ve got the bullets and the guns
and the propaganda machine
all we ever had was an impossible dream
you stood tall as steel in the flaming night
said “let us have no fear
the victors will be those who can the most endure

sally came to me with flames in her eyes
and her long hair blowin’ in the breeze
she said “dry up your tears, boy, we’ve been down too long
it’s time we were up off our knees”

oh the stars in the heavens are blazin’ tonight
the moon she is glidin’ on high
and the drum roll of liberty beats in my heart
as the warm winds of change blow by

don’t ask me to be a slave anymore
i couldn’t be if i tried
for the pipes scream an anthem of hope in my heart
as the warm winds of change blow by

she moved like a ghost through the enemy lines
but her laugh was defiant and clear
she kissed me hard on the mouth and said “goodbye,
i’ll love you forever, my dear”
