The Laundries - (C) BENO

Taken from her family,
Put into a home
Locked inside a padded cell
In fear and all alone

Beaten, Starved and Tortured
By nuns of Catholic faith
Forced to work, to scrub, to clean
And not get any pay

Loneliness and violence
They struggled to survive
Suppression and oppression
And nowhere they could hide

They cried alone in those dark cells
Denied their education
Bitter, Angry, Full of rage
Consumed by the frustration

They fought the church for all those years
And then the Irish nation
But in the end the women they
Got f**k all compensation

Those laundries of the catholic church
Held Mothers, Daughters, Wives
Those laundries and the Irish state
Destroyed the women's lives
