Establishment Curse

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You cut a very brave figure Anne, you really do.
And we’re right behind you, all the way through.
They took a life from you, we all know the facts.
Now have you ever seen so many covered backs?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The world needs to know just what they’ve done.
How they turned a woman into a grieving Mum.
You searched for the truth but the truth was scarce.
Stitched up at every turn, the establishment curse.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 It’s so cruel what they’ve done, nobody can deny.
How come the rules of justice to you don’t apply?
You cut a very brave figure, we’ll support you ‘till the
We’ll straighten every law that they’ve tried to bend.
