Lyrics
Mary's son was framed
Mary's son was framed
For the changing of times
And other crimes
Mary's son

One day the King of Spain
Said Mary's son did reign
And with a stroke of the pen
Drove ten-thousand men
Onto ships in the night in the rain

It took strength and forgiveness
For him to be living this cause
His words were first taken
For lies then mistaken for laws

Mary still must hide
From the men who now preside
It's not hard to guess
What they'll take away next
Her choice, her right to decide
On the child she carries inside

Yes Mary's still in town
Her son lives underground
You know it comes as a shock
When they first come to knock
On the doors of your street in your town

It took strength and forgiveness
For him to be living this cause
His words were first taken
For lies then mistaken for laws

Mary's son was framed
Her child and house were blamed
For the changing of times
And other crimes
Mary's son

For the shifting of sands
And lifting of hands
Mary's son

For the turning of clocks
And burning of locks
Mary's son

And it comes as a shock
When they first come to knock
For Mary's son today
