lyrics

Ringing that bell

Still they keep on ringing that bell
Through the blacked-out windows of my bedsit hell
From the steeple top they’re taunting me
Smug with impunity
They ring it without guilt or shame
And no regard for my pounding brain
Truths were told and numbers fell
But still they keep on ringing that bell
Through the blacked-out windows of my bedsit hell
Still they keep on ringing that bell

How I wish Justine was here
I would whisper I’m sorry in here ear
When she left me years ago she said
I can’t share you with the ghosts in your head
Oh sweet Justine my Brixton Queen
She never knew what they took from me
Some stories hurt too much to tell
And there are fires that only drink can quell
Through the blacked-out windows of my bedsit hell
Still they keep on ringing that bell

Still they keep on ringing that bell
While I’m counting up coins for a bottle of Glen’s
In last night’s clothes I’ll make a start
And drink a curse to the sacred heart
And all sanctimonious cunts out there
From Letterfrack to St Peter’s square
No more holy than Cromwell
Still they keep on ringing that bell
Through the blacked-out windows of my bedsit hell
Still they keep on ringing that bell

Oh sweet Justine my Brixton Queen
She never knew what they took from me
Some stories hurt too much to tell
And there are fires that only drink can quell
Through the blacked-out windows of my bedsit hell
Still they keep on ringing that bell
