Back in the News, The Lies of Hillsborough

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 As the shouts for justice keep on coming
News breaks BBC see leaked documents
The lies they told were no surprise
We’ve heard it all before
Them blaming drunk and ticket-less fans
We know the truth
Whether we were there that day or not
But the lies will be believed
By those who never know anything else
It is our job, our duty
To educate the uneducated
To tell our story wherever we go
To hold our heads up high
And say…
We shall not tire nor shall we rest
Til the truth is known
Til justice comes
Til the lies and myths of Hillsborough are dispelled


I heard about the BBC seeing the documents when I put on BBC news at three o’clock a couple of days ago, I missed that start but watched it to the end and I looked at the time it was six minutes past three, I turned the channel over with tears in my eyes knowing the lies would once more be believed.
