The Day Truth Died (15th April 1989)

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The LiverBird hangs her noble head
Her tears stains the earth with blood
For 96 of her children were lost that day
Her daughters and her sons

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The chimes of Justice silent still
The days still waits to dawn
To herald in the words of truth
That died, still not reborn

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A paper’s millions count the cost
Accountants shake their heads
Yet not for loved ones that day lost
But copies left on shelves

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 A grieving city closed its ranks
And comfort sought the light
The paper ran home to its banks
Then printed up its lies

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Some politicians saw a chance
Poured bile into those wounds
“Robbin’ Scousers, thievin’ scum”
“The S** says so it’s true”

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Leppings lane a killing field
Football’s Somme for sure
The 96 Souls remember them
Each name upon that wall.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 For The 96 Men, Women and Children…
