Lyrics

Birmingham, 1974, there occurred a bloody murder
Twenty-one people killed by bombs, Britain reeled in horror
Within three hours the British State found the first available scapegoats--
Five Irish men bound for Belfast, about to board the boat
And this is their story, very sad, but true
Of how six men were falsely imprisoned for something they didn't do
And if any should say, "British justice is the very best in the world"
Tell them, "Well of course it is, for the vested interests it serves"
The men were taken to Morkham to be tested for explosives
Tests which have since proved ambiguous but were at the time held as conclusive
One scientists' word was sufficient to condemn the Irish men
Like vultures the police moved in to begin interrogations
In the circumstances how well do you think the men's rights were observed?
The cops thought they had the bombers; do you think they kept their judgement reserved?
Does 'innocent till proven guilty' have any meaning at all
When you're alone in a police house surrounded by cops being kicked around like a ball
In a dark windowless room half a dozen detectives were waiting
Billy Power was thrown in, the serious questions about to begin
He was kicked and hit and punched from all sides, spread-eagled against the wall
They kicked him and hit him again, a voice from the dark said, "Stretch his balls"
Soon after, poor Billy surrendered, screamed, "I'll tell you anything you want me to say"
Sat in his own excretia, he could hardly speak he remained in a daze
Whilst cops compiled his statement of how he planted the bombs
They threatened him with the treatment again so Billy signed a confession
Thursday night became Friday night, the five men were took back to Birmingham
The threats and the violence continued--a taste of what was to come
Deprived of food and sleep, all part of procedure to break the men
Johnny Walker blacked out twice; they untied his hands while he signed his confession
And Richard McIlkenny was threatened with a gun
The cop said it was OK to shoot him, that the home officer'd given permission
The cop asked him if he was going to sign, put the gun against his head
Playing Russian roulette with a blank; when he banged McIlkenny thought he was dead
Hugh Callaghan, a sixth man, was picked up in Berm and tortured
He, too, hadn't done it but they made him sign a confession to mass murder
Six men
