And he's feeling really bad
And he's sitting in a prison
Should he lie down do nothing
Should give in or go mad " "And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
Torn apart" "Belfast Brigade" Written in 1920's to tune of "Battle Hymn of the Republic"
Mentions Irish freedom
