lyrics

The Ballad of Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi

The high and the mighty gather for the trial
In wigs and robes the colour of blood, from the Royal Mile
In the hall of smoke and mirrors, puppets take the stand
A stain lies upon this land

A miscarriage of justice United Nations states
The case loaded in Malta was full of holes and rests
On a circuit of suspicion Megrahi served his time
A stain lies upon my country

When they brought you down to Kamp Zeist the noose was already tied
Beneath the lion and unicorn, evidence denied
Giaka-nory told his story with his pockets full
A stain lies upon my country

The high and the mighty gather for the trial
In wigs and robes the colour of blood, from the Royal Mile
In the hall of smoke and mirrors, puppets take the stand
A stain lies upon this land
