lyrics

They say it’s to commemorate those who died at the Somme
But it’s also used to celebrate the men who planted bombs
From Monaghan to Dublin town, they killed with impunity
But they failed in their ultimate quest, to bring Ireland to its knees.

They say that crown forces came on peacekeeping missions
But they have whitewashed history since long before partition
Catholic & Protestant, we were all Irish Gaels
Lest We Forget imperialists had set us up to fail

The fascist flower is growing still
A brazen reminder of those killed
They plead ignorance and innocence to their nation’s great crimes
While the fascist flower is growing still

They will call you a terrorist for fighting for your rights
For trying to live in territory illegally occupied
With hunger strikes for MPs, and internment without trial
While the British public slept easy in comfortable denial

The fascist flower is growing still
A brazen reminder of those killed
From Ireland down to India, the forgotten genocides
Where the fascist flower is growing still

History is written by the victor
But they will never paint a full picture
In their eyes their actions were always justified
Now they try to make sure no soldier is ever tried

The fascist flower is growing still
A brazen reminder of those killed
They feign ignorance and innocence to their nation’s great crimes
And the fascist flower is growing still
