…Sunday, Bloody Sunday…

..Many thanks to U2 who continue to inspire me…

{in the tune of Sunday Bloody Sunday}

I can’t read the news anymore
Oh, I can’t cry anymore
To make it all better

How long…
How long must I see this shit
How long, how long…
‘Cause tonight… I need some relief
Tonight

Broken dreams for my children’s fate
Bodies strewn across the judge’s bench
I need not turn on the news
It makes me seethe with rage
Makes me seethe with justified rage

Sunday, Bloody Monday
Tuesday, Bloody Wednesday
Thursday, Bloody Friday

And the news just came in
There’s so much gone, but let me explain
The hole is dug within the system
And the families of sisters and brothers
Buried apart

Saturday, Bloody Sunday
Monday, Bloody Tuesday
Wednesday, Bloody Thursday

How long…
How long must I see this shit
How long, how long…
‘Cause tonight… I need some relief
Tonight

Friday, Bloody Saturday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Wipe the blood from your hands
Wipe the blood away
Oh, wipe that blood away
Oh, wipe that blood away
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

Sunday, Bloody Sunday, Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday, Sunday, Bloody Sunday

It’s not true we are immune
When fiction is fact and Reality TV
And today the millions morn
We go on and on while tomorrow they die

Sunday, Bloody Sunday

The real news came in
To claim victory Common Sense won
On and on…

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday…
