Many lines are so finely drawn
In Belfast town, hard to see the divide
difficult to know when you have crossed
the divide into, another
Dimension of hatred and bigotry
A name, a word, an incident
spoken in the wrong place
at the wrong time earns you
the eternal right to die,according
to the unspoken law of bigotry.
you strayed across the line into our area.
That area - do you belong in it?
Are you A Jewish catholic,
a Hindu catholic, a protestant Jew
Or Hindu protestant.
It does not matter.
You are not one of us?
Who are we? We are the "people"
we hate everyone
No discrimination we just hate,
all of you Catholics.
We have huffed and puffed then blown
Your lives away
Especially in the romper room
on a pleasant Sunday morning
having a wee drink before church.
Belfast, Belfast we love our town
you are very welcome as long
as you don’t Stray across the line.
Once you do you’ll be lucky,lucky,lucky
if we, the people, let you leave.
Remember this is our town
don’t stray across the divide.
