Christy Moore - Tiles And Slabs Lyrics




A country artist making tiles
Whilst on a grave slab sleeps a son
Wet clay dug from the earth
Wet stones covering the ground

Earth that buried another woman died, dead and gone
Left a torn lonely boy trying to reconfirm
Trying to reconnect

Trying to know himself and to contact the country
Trying to know himself and to contact the country

Whilst the artist celebrates
Connects and confirms
Contacts the country
Knows herself
Tiles and slabs
Woman and son
Take away
Take a gun
Blow away the blow-in
The blow-in

Kill the mother, kill the child in yourself
Kill the pain
Kill the father and the son and the holy ghost

Kill the pain
Violence from an inner rage buried in the country
Violence from an inner rage buried in the country
