about

"Run/Rolf" is the latest single from Irish experimental rock artist Joey Gavin, a two track 7" which sees a release on Irish DIY label Little L Records

"Rolf" muses on Rolf Harris' murky actions and the disillusionment which comes with the influential figure's fall from grace.
The track also references the discovery of a mass grave in Bon Secours Mother and Baby Home in Tuam.
It is a message of lament and anger at innocence lost by the hands of power.

lyrics

Rolf Harris is a Paedophile
Should of got 25 to life
I saw it on the TV
I can't avert my eyes
How many generations?
Man, he is 80 odd!
You would think the world got sicker
I think we just forgot

Why now the revelation
At least Jimmy Savile died
There is no resolution
Rolf Harris is a paedophile

800 baby skeletons
In a septic cell
The magdalene sisters
Got nothing on that hell
Who's thinking of the children
Who could they have been?
If Jesus knew about it
We would not be soon keen

Why now the revelation
At least Jimmy Savile died
Mass murder and starvation
Rolf Harris is a paedophile

What lies behind a friendly smile
Behind a wobble board
Behind a turin shroud
Behind closed doors?

I wish there was some overlord
Hiding in the lightning
Society is all we got
It's hanging by a string

Why now the revelations?
At least Jimmy Savile died
There is no resolution
Rolf Harris is a paedophile
