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.
