Justice For The 95?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 ‘Justice for the 96′ we know the chant well.
All the flags have the same message to tell.
The headline news always reads the same.
’96 innocent victims’ we recall every name.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When candles are lit or when the bells ring.
’96’ counts we hear, just like when we sing.
Now finally we’ve reached the justice stage.
And ‘victory’ headlines make the front page.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But read the small print in Tony Bland’s case.
No questions or prosecution will anyone face.
Because it was 4 years after that fateful day.
When 22 year old Tony Bland passed away.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 ‘Too much time had elapsed’ a ‘cut off rule’
The Law of the Land, for Tony’s family cruel.
But when justice is achieved, you can be sure.
It’ll be in Tony’s name too, that’s scouse law!
