lyrics

Francis Bacon made a painting
Of the Nazi Pope in waiting
Existential agony
Hanging in The National Gallery

Soap and bandages from the master of Seville
Roast beef sandwiches from a pub in Notting Hill
You find a way there’s always been a will

Francis Bacon Irish pilgrim
Combs the streets of Soho London
Drinking at the Groucho Club with
Jeffrey Bernard and Damian Hurst

Police conviction it’s the duty of the state
To those who love to love and those we love to hate
The sitter takes his clothes off the artist starts to paint

Francis Bacon died in Madrid
In the raincoat he was wearing
Surrounded by people drawing
Inspiration from his calling

The crucifixion of a famous friend’s portrait
The Daily Mirror says people can’t relate
You cut your nose off to spite your face

To spite your face
