Howard Moss – Outside The Pale lyrics

We grew up in a small town just outside the pale
30 miles from Dublin riding with the rails
The times they were the eighties when things were kinda tough
Where jobs they weren't many we tried from dawn till dusk

The rain it kept on pouring, pouring down on us
Drowning in the darkness it washed away the dust
Our hearts they were afflicted and heavy with the load
Still so dark and lonely it's a story long been told

Outside the pale, without fail, they've ruined all of us
Outside the pale, without fail, they betrayed our trust

The boom it started coming and change was on the cards
Then people started moving and swimming with the sharks
Greed to be the downfall of the tiger as he roared
Then back towards the old times like before

We left to move to Boston as my father did before
We had nothing in our pockets just pennies for our thoughts
So we went and packed our suitcase and headed for the plane
Hoping for a new start and let go of this pain

Outside the pale, without fail, they've ruined all of us
Outside the pale, without fail, they betrayed our trust
Outside the pale, without fail, they've ruined all of us
Outside the pale, without fail, they betrayed our trust
