​Prisoner's Anthem

This song is by Éire Óg.

Let us sing a Prisoners anthem
Let it echo through the cells
All along the halls and landings
Let our hearts and voices swell

Well let us sing of home and loved ones
And the things that keep us sane
Of the friends who will be waiting
When we all walk free again

Well there's a part that can't be captured
In every woman and in every man
For the spirit cannot be shackled
Although they chain our feet and hands

So come all ye screws and warders
Don't you think that it's a crime?
Although you do your best to break us
We still stand as we do our time
