Au Pairs – Armagh lyrics

We don't torture, we're a civilized nation
We're avoiding any confontation
We don't torture, we don't torture
American hostages
In Iran
Heard daily on the news
Forget about Vietnam
You can ignore the 32
There are 32 women in Armagh jail
Political prisoners here at home
The British state's got nothing to lose
It's a subject better left alone -
We don't torture
We're a civilized nation
We're avoiding
Any confontation
We don't torture
Alleged crimes withheld information
She gets no sanitation
Dries her shit on her cell wall
Feeling cold and sick
She gets a couple of valium
Now she's relaxed for the next interrogation
Naked spreadeagled on her back
It's a better position for internal examination
It's a better position for giving information
An armed guard squad she gets a beating
Bleeding and wounded she's stopped eating
Has a baby gets nothing for pain they came and took
Her baby away
