lyrics

The Four Faced Liar

Three years in the shadow,
Of the tower that everybody knows,
Where the Clocks on every side,
Can't even agree on the time.

The women down the Coal Quay,
Selling cigarettes and bootleg tapes,
I thought I was there to stay,
Till the hour hand pushed me away

Spinning round Sir Henry's,
My childhood friends and me,
Singing, this is how it's gonna be.

This is a bad idea,
And you and I we know it well,
Well enough to do it again.

Drinking down the back of FÁS*,
Window shopping for a job,
You've been too quiet for too long,
I should have known something was wrong.

Spinning round Sir Henry's,
My childhood friends and me,
Singing, this is how it's gonna be.


*FÁS is the Irish word for grow and also the name of now dissolved Employment Centre.
