"Another Bag Of Bricks" as written by and David R King Bridget A Regan....
T`was in the early evenin`
Near the presence of the moon
You told me you would meet me here
Well now is not too soon
This dagger twisting in my back
Tells me I never should
Have trusted everything to fall
From beggar to fool
I see your face like every race
A serpent with two arms
Devouring me while rains the sun
With dreams in foreign lands
This cold dark tormented hell
Is all I`ll ever know
So when you get to heaven
May the devil be the judge
With another bag of bricks

I scratch your name across these walls
And with my blood turns red
Then drips upon my killing floor
Where I now call my bed
No precious light to harbor
Like so many here before
Now breathes a thousand more
With another bag of bricks

Temper filled with blindness
Leads this lost and lonely man
Dragged around your whipping tree
A scourge you can`t command
So deafen me with silence
Drown me with your roar
Scowl me with your hollow eyes
Still burnin` to the core
No door will go unanswerd
Like so many closed before
No vagabond to knock upon
This tired and beatin` war
When all return to exile
Free from all once bound
Decline and brawl old parasites
The truth will yet be found
With another bag of bricks

This cold dark tormented hell
Is all I`ll ever know
So when you get to heaven
May the devil be the judge
With another bag of bricks

    General CommentWhen I hear this song, I imagine a band of gypsies and pirates, perfect for Flogging Molly.

    A great sort of feeling and great accordian work.

    General CommentI like the lyrics in this song a lot. It is well written, but musically I don't care to much for it. I don't hate it, but it isn't my favorite.

    General CommentYeah, I love the Middle Eastern sound to it. Nice change of pace from their pure Irish Folk sound. Good variation.

    General CommentThis song just seem incredibly trite to me. Seems as though the author seems to try entirely too hard to carry forth some great message, but ends up spouting re-arranged colloquialisms by the dozen. Musically, it is competent, but unimpressive.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song by this band of rogue's from the land of Guiness. I stared at the lyrics for a spell and I believe it to be a vision of Hell. There are a lot of evil images in it, so it could be taken as such. I would even say that this song is about a man seeing what Hell actually is and he is being tortured for his belief in God. I don't know what it could truly mean...but I had to start somewhere. This is a great song nonetheless.
