"Jeremiah" as written by Benjamin Byrne, James Paul Stelfox, James Milne Walsh and Barry Westhead....
Jeremiah was dealt his hand
Went off to another land this evening
For to find some inner peace
And to see a better way of living

He only went to try to change something
His poor young life was pulled from under him

Found him by the motorway
Jeremiah ran away from something
Jeremiah's mother wept
For the answers they had left behind them

He only went to try and change something
His poor young life was pulled from under him

And every time I see the sun go down I think of you
The polizei have swept it out of sight
There's nothing new
And every time I see the sun go down I think of you
I hope someday someone will feel the need to tell the truth
Little one do not fear
The ways of the world
Will soon be clear

    General CommentThis is about a man who unwittingly joined an extreme left wing political group. He travelled to Germany to a meeting and stood up to announce he was Jewish; to which a long silence followed. He then realised the group consisted of a bunch of headcases and he walked out and was walking along a road when he was struck by two cars simultaneously. The German Police covered it up saying he committed suicide. The lyrics make this clear
