lyrics

Did the plane slap down like a seagull’s arse?
Were you conquered cold in the long-term parking?
Did clouds beat down on your forehead, dark like a cartoon anvil?
Did you see a photograph ten feet tall
Of a golden crozier and Pope John Paul?
Did you hear the hairy marys call “Pray for Ireland”?
And did you fail, and fail again?
Did you fall on filthy knees?
Did you feel your mouth go “Please”?
And did you see colours in the fading evening glow?
Did you see colours of a Harry Clarke window
In the strobing aerodrome?

Did the laughing school girls line the walls
At the Santry exit near Beaumont Hospital?
In avenues did leaves fall?
Were there two young lovers?
And did they kiss, and kiss again?
Did the clouds part way to earth?
Were there several virgin births?
You bet there were flying colours
In the fading evening glow
Did you see colours of a city draped in gold
Or did you just drive straight on home?
