Lyrics:

I was born in the city 
I was born in the city 
And I was raised up right around here 

Daddy's down in the workhouse 
Daddy's down in
I gotta change my ways,you all i got 
Can't be in n out jail, Like ur grandpa was
When i was in that workhouse, 50,000 bond 
Thinking to myself, I'm
Vandeventer and Sarah
Run when you see the law all they do is harass and try to sweat us
Back then they put us in the workhouse
Today the workhouse is
Filling pockets of the oligarch
Prison beds full
Profiteering
Wealth
Built on backs of workhouse slavery
Built on backs of workhouse slavery
Oh
You go to church quiet as a mouse
You're a big cheese now in the workhouse
With these vulgar fractions of the treble clef
I wish you luck with
You go to church quiet as a mouse
You're a big cheese now in the workhouse
With these vulgar fractions of the treble clef
I wish you luck with
She chose the cold open plain o'er
The dark workhouse door

With two broken wings
And feathers so brown
They come from all over
To hunt the wren
is your soft skin
And I wondered
Inside the workhouse, you mind your own business
And I had the courage of two
And as I requested a lapse in your
A plague in the workhouse, a plague on the poor
Now I'll beat on my drum 'til I'm dead
Yesterday, a fever, tomorrow, St. Peter
I'll beat on my
Workhouse?
Yeah? What do you want?
Information
Who the fuck do you think you are? You never fucking stop
Always wanting something for nothing
I've been down to parliament, I've been in school
I've been in jail to learn the golden rule
I've been to the workhouse, served my time in those
I am a pain, in you're ass
And I'm wondering how long it's gonna last.
Be my mirror, be my friend,
Be the workhouse of the energy
I twist your arm
the grind of Imperialistic overkill
Industrious teeth sank deep into the red map
Workhouses, grist for Satanic treadmills
Spew offspring back intact
In
eighteen fifty-six
I'm at the workhouse with my bundle of sticks
These people think I'm nuts
But they won't complain
When their lives get better cause
to care
Their hungry eyes have seen too much to bear
Dread the awful workhouse
Fear the paupers' grave
Nothing left to save but in their dreaming
If only we
Temptation & I

empty bedroom at night

alone as the dawn's iron gates

in the workhouse light

eyes in the firelight

so, hold on, hold on, hold on,

open
a workhouse chained in mind-forged manacles

All them people on TV
Living the life that I should be
They sit around drinking coffee
I’m phoning around ordering
Not even the good thief on the cross 
Just how can we return to being like little children 
While breaking stones for the workhouse boss

Row me up some
you in Tennessee
From the Dodder to the Dargle to Delgany
From the rivers & the mountains down to the sea
The quiet workhouse cemetery
Between
you in Tennessee
From the Dodder to the Dargle to Delgany
From the rivers & the mountains down to the sea
The quiet workhouse cemetery
Between
minutes.

As the time left her soul went with it.

So there they were, two kids alone.

Could you even call this a home?

Niall knew the workhouse was coming
need slow down, 'for we burn out
Trying to fix our habits, make some money, need no workhouse
Run routes, send a hail mary on the third down
Screaming if
the shackles of the workhouse

Seem to roar…



Tick, tock, goes the clock.

Your time is almost up.

Two orphans alone.

Without a home.

The streets are where
Cantankerous men
Make workhouse, blouses
Harassment,
Training on sickly screens
The real abuse is the sandwich man
Cut off another inch
Of your daily
