Hold Up The Sky
It’s raining in Belfast they’re counting the kill when the hour comes around I swallow my pill raise my hand up with a light in my eye I am the man here who holds up the sky When I was a boy Lord I never was kissed the sting of the leather, the thump of the fist taught me to hide and to shut up and lie I taught myself how to hold up the sky And I hold it up for you, I hold it up for you Jupiter, Saturn, Venus and Mars they’d come crashing down here along with the stars life here on Earth would just instantly die That’s why they sent me to hold up the sky They ask what will happen when I go to bed who’ll hold the sky up whenever I‘m dead brothers and sisters out there standing by Ready and willing to hold up the sky And I hold it up for you, I hold it up for you I’m soaked to the skin I’m as cold as can be I don’t understand why they’re laughing at me Laughing at me with my hand held up high I am the man here who holds up the sky It’s raining in Belfast they’re counting the kill.
