Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp Songbook

51 We don't Torture / Armagh

Women locked in prison cells.
Nothing to do but cut themselves.

- Chorus -

We don't torture, we don't torture
We don't torture, we're a civilised nation
We're avoiding any confrontation
We don't torture, we don't torture

Stripped and searched.
They rape your body so deep inside.

Largactyl shuffle, deadened eyes.
The muppet wing hears the screaming cries.

51 Who are the Witches?

Who are the witches,
Where do they come from?
Maybe your great-great granmother was one?
Witches are wild wise women they say
There's a lot of witch in every women today.

Who are the bultcutters?
Where do they come from?
Maybe your great-great granmother has one?
There's a lot of holes in Greenham fences today.
