  • Lyrics
  • On this somber tune, Morrissey explores the Dublin prison where Republican writer Brendan Behan did time for the attempted murder of two Irish detectives. Behan set his most famous play, The Quare Fellow, in Mountjoy jail.
  • Producer Joe Chiccarelli told Radio.com that the drums were programmed "to sound like the metal of a prison door, to evoke the concrete, the unhappy inmates."
