Motorcycle Emptiness

Culture sucks down words
Itemise loathing and feed yourself smiles
Organise your safe tribal war
Hurt maim kill and enslave the ghetto

Each day living out a lie
Life sold cheaply forever, ever, ever

Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness

Life lies a slow suicide
Orthodox dreams and symbolic myths
From feudal serf to spender
This wonderful world of purchase power

Just like lungs sucking on air
Survivals natural as sorrow, sorrow, sorrow

Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness

All we want from you are the kicks you've given us
All we want from you are the kicks you've given us
All we want from you are the kicks you've given us
All we want from you are the kicks you've given us

Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness

Drive away and it's the same
Everywhere death row, everyone's a victim
Your joys are counterfeit
This happiness corrupt political shit

Living life like a comatose
Ego loaded and swallow, swallow, swallow

Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness everlasting nothingness

FAILURE BOUND
FROM : EMPTY SOULS (DVD)

Provincial Lolitas
Sprawling in high heels
Untamed nature dies
Failure Bound, in your eyes

See the prams they push around
Benefits and drugs are found
Sad-eyed, lonely, failure bound
Ashen-faced skin, failure bound

I listen to money singing
It's like looking do wn from long french windows
On a provincial town
The slums, the canal s, the church
Ornate and mad
In the eveni ng sun it is intense ly sad

Failure Bound
Failure Bound

FEAR OF MOTION
FROM : LET ROBESON SING (12")

To be afraid of the unknown
Don't turn your back on me
Control is never full
Please follow my orders

Fear of motion, unable to function
I need you as much as you need me
The clash will be as chaotic as you want it
So make a meal and keep moving forward

Fear of motion
Unable to function
Fear of motion
Unable to function

FASTER
FROM : THE HOLY BIBLE

"I hate purity
Hate goodness
I don't want virtue to exist anywhere
I want everyone corrupt"

I am an architect, they call me a butcher
I am a pioneer, they call me primitive
I am purity, they call me perverted
Holding you but I only miss these things when they leave

I am idiot drug hive, the virgin, the tattered and the torn
Life is for the cold made warm and they are just lizards
Self-disgust is self-obsession honey and I do as I please
A morality obedient, only to the cleansed repented

I am stronger than Mensa, Miller and Mailer
I spat out Plath and Pinter
I am all the things that you regret
A truth that washes that learnt how to spell

The first time you see yourself naked you cry
Soft skin now acne, foul breath, so broken
He loves me truly this mute solitude I'm draining
I know I believe in nothing but it is my nothing

Sleep can't hide the thoughts splitting through my mind
Shadows aren't clean, false mirrors too many people awake
If you stand up like a nail then you will be knocked down
I've been too honest with myself I should have lied like everybody else

I am stronger than Mensa, Miller and Mailer
I spat out Plath and Pinter
I am all the things that you regret
A truth that washes that learnt how to spell, learnt to spell

So damn easy to cave in, man kills everything
So damn easy to cave in, man kills everything
So damn easy to cave in, man kills everything
So damn easy to cave in, man kills everything

FIREFIGHT
FROM : GOD SAVE THE MANICS (EP)

Tonight we watch the burning cars shining bright
Was it boredom, is not the sky enough

Everything I loved is now leaving me
No photographs can show how it used to be

Wake up the past and tell it to stay away
Bad times are here to stay
Wake up the past and tell it to stay away
Bad times are here to stay
Its just a Firefight
Its just a Firefight

What can you do when everything turns to dust
A sign from god replaced what you forgot
What can you do when everything turns to dust
A sign from god replaced what you forgot

Wake up the past and tell it to stay away
Bad times are here to stay
Wake up the past and tell it to stay away
Bad times are here to stay
Its just a Firefight
Its just a Firefight

FIRST REPUBLIC
SINGLE : KEVIN CARTER
ALBUM : EVERYTHING MUST GO

You are so alone
In Kensington Palace
We should be content
In these damp terraces

Thank you for this view
From our council estates
I hope you have really
Guillotined your own head

I crown myself, myself a king
And declare a first republic
We wanna play yes we wanna play
In the burnt out palace ruins

You once gave us war
Racism and slavery
Cut out all our tongues
And f**ked our industry

Now you've revealed something
You're human after all this
But let's clap our hands
And f**k our dear princess

I crown myself, myself a king
And declare a first republic
We wanna play yes we wanna play
In the burnt out palace ruins

I crown myself, myself a king
And declare a first republic
We wanna play yes we wanna play
In the burnt out palace ruins

FOREVERDELAYED / 4 EVER DELAYED
ALBUM FROM : COMPLILATION LIPSTICK TRACES - A SECRET HISTORY OF MANIC STREET PREACHERS

Screaming through the galaxy
Trapped in this eternity
Stranded helpless, endlessly
Alone, the lost vigilantes

Forever ever delayed
Forever ever delayed

From the city to the sea
Will you all come follow me
To a place where we are free
Not tied to guilt or tied to greed

Forever ever delayed
Forever ever delayed
Forever ever betraye d
Forever delayed...

FOUND THAT SOUL
ALBUM : KNOW YOUR ENEMY

album: know your enemy
single: found that soul
(video live version) dvd: louder than war
(video-clip) dvd: forever delayed

Show me a wonder
You can't be sure of
I exist in a place
A self-made vacuum
But still stranded here
With all the scum
So clean, So lost
So beautiful

But I found that soul
Yeah I found that home
But I found that soul

Not a subject
Not a subject am I
Sick and pale but
Strangely alive
Broken blood vessels
Line my cheeks
Reflections look bad
And somehow unreal

But I found that soul
Yeah I found that home
But I found that soul

Show me a wonder
Show me a wonder...

FRAGMENTS
ALBUM : LIFEBLOOD

Strung out eyes as cold as worship
Two minutes silence in a century of screams
Tiny massive hands, emphatic lonely soul
Skin against skin and blood against blood

This is the place where peace exists
This is the place where my mind resists
The fragments fail to hold me
The fragments fail to hold me...

When there's time I'll read your words
There's no point disguising
You're the one who's hurt
Laid bloody and bare to see
The effects will fail to desert me

This is the place where peace exists
This is the place where my mind resists
The fragments fail to hold me
The fragments fail to hold me...

This is the place where my mind resists
The fragments fail to hold me
The fragments fail to hold me...

FREEDOM OF SPEECH WON'T FEED MY CHILDREN
ALBUM : KNOW YOUR ENEMY

Liberty , sweet liberty
Charitable respectability
Then pacifism killed us all
For all the tourists on the Berlin wall

So we protest about human rights
Worship obesity as our birthright
But freedom of speech won't feed my children
Just brings heart disease and bootleg clothing
Just brings heart disease and bootleg clothing

We love to kiss the Dalai Lama's ass
Because he is such a holy man
Free to eat and buy anything
Free to f**k from Paris to Beijing

Little boys with dangerous toys
All bow down to the Beastie Boys
But freedom of speech won't feed my children
Just brings heart disease and bootleg clothing
Just brings heart disease and bootleg clothing

Royalty - hereditery - unelected and becalmed
Just like Stalin, just like Stalin
Human and useless

Bomb the Chinese Embassy
The west is free, oh the west is free
Laugh at the hammer and sickle
It is antique

And see the love in Richard Gere's eyes
J.S. Pembe rton saved our lives
But freedom of speech won't feed my children
Just brings heart disease and bootleg clothing
Just brings heart disease and bootleg clothing...

FROM DESPAIR TO WHERE
ALBUM : GOLD AGAINST THE SOUL

I write this alone on my bed
I've poisoned every room in the house
The place is quiet and so alone
Pretend there's something worth waiting for

There's nothing nice in my head
The adult world took it all away
Wake up with same spit in my mouth
Cannot tell if it is real or not

I try and walk in a straight line
An imitation of dignity
From despair to where
From despair to where

Outside open-mouth crowds
Pass each other as if they're drugged
Down pale corridors of routine
Where life falls unatoned

The weak kick like straw
Till the world means less and less
Words are never enough
Just cheap tarnished glitter

I try and walk in a straight line
An imitation of dignity
From despair to where
From despair to where

A cripple walks in a straight line
An imitation of dignity
From despair to where
From despair to where

FURTHER AWAY
ALBUM : EVERYTHING MUST GO

The further away I get from you
The harder it gets for everyone else
For everyone else

The happier I am when I'm with you
The harder it gets when I am alone

The harder I try to learn something from you
Further away

Further away
Feel it fade into your childhood
Further away

Further away
Feel dazed and misunderstood
Further away

The stiller the oxygen the harder you breathe
The draining away just like an old man's dream

The simpler of the answer the harder it can get
The circular landscape comes back only with regret

The more estranged I feel from my youth
Further away

Further away
Feel it fade into your childhood
Further away

Further away
Feel dazed and misunderstood
Further away...

GLASNOST
ALBUM : LIFEBLOOD

When did life get so, get so complicated
When did time start, start accelerating
Make life slower
Stop life growing

If we can still fall in love
If we can still fall in love
Embrace with us - make your own glasnost

And in defeat, cling to these words so clear
Humiliations not easily understood
Onto the future
Such messages are burned

If we can still fall in love
If we can still fall in love
Embrace with us - make your own glasnost

If we can still fall in love
If we can still fall in love
Embrace with us - make your own glasnost

If we can still fall in love
If we can still fall in love
Embrace with us - make your own glasnost

GOLD AGAINST THE SOUL
ALBUM : GOLD AGAINST THE SOUL

Somebody told me to vote Conservative
Tragedy is not known under this dimmest of lights
Everybody feels sick by the courtesy of dismay
Was I schooled without direction

Gold against the soul
Rock 'n' roll has a conscience
It supplies convenience
Gold against
Against the soul
Against the soul

Close the pits, sanctify Roy Lynk an OBE
Shareholding a piece of this f**king country
Fossilise, make Yorkshire into a tourist resort
And dream of new ways to humble the poor

Gold against the soul
White liberal hates slavery
Needs Thai labour to clean his home
Gold erodes
Erodes the soul
Erodes the soul

A 1000 Marlboro deaths ignored everyday
And who gives a shit about sexuality

Gold against the soul
Working class cliches start here
Either cloth caps or smack victims
Gold destroyed
Destroyed the soul
Destroyed the soul

GROUNDHOG DAYS
SINGLE : OCEAN SPRAY
ALBUM : KNOW YOUR ENEMY

Waking up again
To the same old thing
To the same old songs
To the same old pain

Cocooned in this world
Where every single thing hurts
Bones broken up inside
Look at the boredom in my eyes

We talk the same
We are the same
We just can't walk anymore

We love these days
These Groundhog Days
We just don't feel like before

I felt the sunset overland
And it made me fight again
But tomorrow came to quick
And I went back to bed again

Cocooned in this world
Where every single thing hurts
Bones broken up inside
Look at the boredom in my eyes

We talk the same
We are the same
We just can't walk anymore

We love these days
These Groundhog Days
We just don't feel like before
Like before

Is this what you do with eternity
I killed myself so many times I don't even exist any more
So I surrender to impulse but still so numb
So make some time
So make some time
Wake up feeling like a Messiah
Totally f**ked five minutes later
My body a temple falling to pieces
Chocolate or Coke, my needs are artificial
Unintentional, forsaken for what
All in search of our personal gods

Anymore
These Groundhog Days
Like before

Waking up again
To the same old thing
To the same old songs
To the same old pain

HANGING ON
SINGLE : EVERYTHING MUST GO
ALBUM : EVERYTHING MUST GO

Hold me down
I don't ever want to see the day
When my time will come
Is it ever gonna end

I'm not here
Wish the last of the year
Where do we go now
Another blackout

Hanging on to nothing
Hanging on to nothing...

I'm not real
But I'd like to have a chance to feel
Before we reach the time
Decide what now is right

I'm not here
Wish the last of the year
Where do we go now
Another blackout

Hanging on to nothing
Hanging on to nothing...

And nothing and nothing is nothing

HAPPY ENDING
SINGLE : THERE BY THE GRACE OF GOD
ALBUM :

We've had a share of glory
We've had our day in the sun
Oh this could be
Oh this could be

We've reached the stars and gutter
Fell from grace and asked for more
Oh this could be
Oh this could be

This could be a happy ending
This could be a happy ending

We've made more enemies than friends
Maybe too many to count
Oh this could be
Oh this could be

We've looked so old and beautiful
Fought the rain, the sleet and snow
Oh this could be
Oh this could be

This could be a happy ending
This could be a happy ending...

This will be a new beginning
This will be a time for changing
This will be never ending
This will be a happy ending

HIBERNATION
SINGLE : FROM DESPAIR TO WHERE
ALBUM : GOLD AGAINST THE SOUL

I got married cos you should
We both knew we should
You do at our age

This stage of our career
Things get tight
A ring helps get a mortgage

To move out of daddy's home
Get a bigger car
Easy access to the city

I can read the papers in peace
And laugh at the homeless
I know my friends criticise

But we get by okay
So what if there's no emotion
We can wake up anywhere

There's never a row
No time for a kiss
When you've got schedules to meet
Trivialities seem so cheap

This is above love
This is more than real
This is all there is
This is as good as it gets
Intense morality parades

HIS LAST PAINTING
ALBUM : KNOW YOUR ENEMY

The nothing in me
The apostle in me
No interpretation
For the heart of me

I can't see right from my wrong
I've loved so much that I can't go on

It's not my life anymore
Don't speak the truth anymore
All of the hope and the dreams
Ripped right open at the seams

I can't see right from my wrong
I've loved so much that I can't go on

Seems like I've lost myself
To everybody and everything else
I've lied again today
People laugh at it all the time

I can't see right from my wrong
I've loved so much that I can't go on

It's not my life anymore
Don't speak the truth anymore
All of the hope and the dreams
Ripped right open at the seams

I can't see right from my wrong
I've loved so much that I can't go on

The nothing in me

The nothing in me
The apostle in me
No interpretation
For the heart of me

The nothing in me
The apostle in me
The nothing in me
The apostle in me

The nothing in me

I LIVE TO FALL ASLEEP
ALBUM : LIFEBLOOD

I live to fall asleep
It's when I stop the hate
I never want to dream
It infiltrates beauty

I live to fall asleep
Regenerate and sin
Skin so tense gives in
I've lived enough to kill

When did you become another distant friend
Everyone who loved you stayed waited till the end
When did you become another distant friend
Everyone who loved you stayed waited till the end
Oh, when did you decide that sleep could save your life
How could you become another boy struck dumb
How could you become another boy struck dumb with love

I live to fall asleep
I live to fall asleep

I live to fall asleep
it helps me through the day
Drink has never dulled
a pain so deep does run

I live to fall asleep
serene alone happy
Holding on to screams
waiting for the time

When did you become another distant friend
Everyone who loved you stayed waited till the end
When did you become another distant friend
Everyone who loved you stayed waited till the end
Oh, when did you decide that sleep could save your life
How could you become another boy struck dumb
How could you become another boy struck dumb with love

I live to fall asleep
I live to fall asleep

So lazy, lazy, lazy
Chuck down all the pills
Needing to remember how and why to live
Oh, when did you decide that sleep could save your life
How could you become another boy struck dumb
How could you become another boy struck dumb with love

I live to fall asleep
I live to fall asleep

IF YOU TOLERATE THIS YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE NEXT
ALBUM : THIS IS MY TRUTH TELL ME YOURS

The future teaches you to be alone
The present to be afraid and cold
So if I can shoot ra bbits Then I can sho ot fascists

Bullets for your brain today
But we'll forget it all again
Monuments put from pen to paper
Turns me into a gutless wonder

And if you tolerate this
Then your children w ill be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children w ill be next
Will be next...

Gravity keeps my head down
Or is it maybe shame
At being so young and being so vain

Holes in your head today
But I'm a pacifist
I've walked La Ramblas
But not with real intent

And if you tolerate this
Then your children w ill be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children w ill be next
Will be next
Will be next..

And on the street tonight an old man plays
With newspaper cuttings of his glory days

And if you tolerate this
Then your children w ill be next
And if you tole rate this
Then your children w ill be next
Will be next...

"Next Thursday you're invited to watch Rising Tide's live coverage of a gala tribute I n salute to Ronald R eagan / Host Haley B arbour joins special guest Lady Margaret Thatcher in celebra ting The former pres ident's 83rd birthda y / Ticket's are $10 00 a plate / But you can see the event f ree on G.O.P. TV "

Images of perfection, suntan and napalm
Grenada, Haiti, Poland, Nicaragua
Who shall we choose for our morality
I'm thinking right now of Hollywood tragedy

Big Mac, smack, Phoenix R, please smile y'all
Cuba, Mexico can't cauterize our discipline
Your idols speak so much of the abyss
Yet your morals only run as deep as the surface

Cool, groovy, morning, fine
(If white)
Tipper Gore was a friend of mine
( America)
I love a free country
(Told the truth)
The stars and stripes and an apple for mommy
(For one day)

Conservative say:
There ain't no black in the Union Jack
Democrat say:
There ain't enough white in the stars and stripes

Compton, Harlem, a pimp f**ked a priest
The white man has just found a new moral saviour
Vital stats, how white was their skin
Unimportant just another inner-city drive-by thing

Morning, fine, serve your first coffee of the day
Real privilege, it will take your problems all away
Number one, the best, no excuse from me
I am here to serve the moral majority

Cool, groovy, morning, fine
(If white)
Tipper Gore was a friend of mine
( America)
I love a free country
(Told the truth)
The stars and stripes and an apple for mommy
(For one day)

Zapruder the first to m*sturbate
The world's first taste of crucified grace
And we say:
There's not enough b lack in the Union Ja ck
And we say:
There's too much white in the stars and stripes

F**k the Brady bill
F**k the Brady bill
If God made man they say, Sam Colt made him equal

I'M NOT WORKING
ALBUM : THIS IS MY TRUTH TELL ME YOURS

Petrified for the millionth time
Slowly my soul evaporates
No parachutes no dismal clouds
Just this f**king space

I know what's coming
I'm not working
I know what's coming
I'm not working

Sweating out intelligence
Like I don't know what it is
Clinging to the microwaves
And singing with the soundwaves

I know what's coming
I'm not working
I know what's coming
I'm not working

Delerium on helium
I am my own experience

I know what's coming
I'm not working
I know what's coming
I'm not working...

INTERIORS (SONG FOR WILLEM DE KOOING)
ALBUM : EVERYTHING MUST GO

Who sees the interiors like young Willem once did
Your beautiful triangle of distortion
Now you seem to forget it so much
Who sees the interiors like young Willem once did

Say you can remember
Say where is the tomorrow
Say where you're coming from
Say what you have left us

Are we too tired to try and understand
That nothing is nothing on that we depend
Take my hand together and we will cry
It really makes no difference
To what we see inside
What we see inside

Who sees the interiors like young Willem once did
A beautiful landscape of your nation
Another era is not forthcoming
Who sees the interiors like young Willem once did

Say you can remember
Say where is the tomorrow
Say where you're coming from
Say what you have left us

Are we too tired to try and understand
That nothing is nothing on that we depend
Take my hand together and we will cry
It really makes no difference
To what you see inside
What you see inside

Say you can remember
Say where is the tomorrow
Say where you're coming from
Say what you have

Are we too tired to try and understand
That nothing is nothing on that we depend
Take my hand together and we will cry
It really makes no difference
To what you see inside
What you see inside

INTRAVENOUS AGNOSTIC
ALBUM : KNOW YOUR ENEMY

Into a vein exhibit the derelict
A secular mosaic distracted at birth
A Cubist abstraction let it live forever
Narcissim so lonely so live by the sea

What a mess

Cosmetic - polemic
Distinguished by relics
Destructive aesthetic
Intravenous agnostic
Intravenous agnostic...

Brutality is needed in capitalist society
Television abandoned my very entity
Nature failed me
But then it made me
We all pray for pluralist babies

Cosmetic - polemic
Distinguished by relics
Destructive aesthetic
Intravenous agnostic
Intravenous agnostic...

Dismayed - dispossessed
Life becomes Calvinist
So sparkle and believe
Linguistics die easily

Intravenous agnostic
Intravenous agnostic
Intravenous agnostic
Intravenous

IT'S ALL GONE
SINGLE THERE BY THE GRACE OF GOD
ALBUM :

Sleep, the only thing to fill these holes
Even if that demon sells its soul
Remember the stories you've been told
I know the beauty that you adored

And it feels
Like it's all gone
The night is black
And the sun has shone

And it feels
Like it's all gone
The night is black
And the sun has shone

Sleep, the drug that helps me forget
The yawning reality of regret
While we still remain with no respect
I laugh at our times with no defence

And it feels
Like it's all gone
The night is black
And the sun has shone

And it feels
Like it's all gone
The night is black
And the sun has shone

It feels like it's all gone...

And it feels
Like it's all gone
The night is black
And the sun has shone...

SINGLE : YOU LOVE US
ALBUM : GENERATION TERRORISTS

I see your sister in her Sunday dress
She's out to please
She pouts her best
She's out to take
No need to try
Ready to make

It's so easy
When everybody's trying to please me baby
It's so easy
When everybody's trying to please me

Cars are crashing every night
I drink and drive everything's in sight
I make the fire
But I miss the firefight
I hit the bullseye every night

It's so easy
When everybody's trying to please me baby
It's so easy
When everybody's trying to please me

I see you standing
You think you're so cool
Why don't you just
F**k off

You get nothing for nothing
If that's what you do
Turn around bitch I got a use for you
Besides you ain't got nothing better to do
And I'm bored

It's so easy, easy
When everybody's trying to please me baby
It's so easy, easy
When everybody's trying to please me

So come with me
Don't ask me where cos I don't know
I'll try to please you
I ain't got no money but it goes to show

It's so easy, so f**king easy
It's so easy, so f**king easy
It's so easy, so f**king easy
It's so easy

JUST A KID
SINGLE OCEAN SPRAY
ALBUM : KNOW YOUR ENEMY

Afraid of the sun
So afraid of the sky
Touch it and taste it
But don't reach too high

Bewildered by them
Then so uncomplicated
All these feelings
Not fully created

Just a kid amongst the Autumn leaves
A kid kicking around with no worries
Just a kid searching through the debris
Just a kid acting like I used to be
Just a kid acting like I used to be

Afraid of the sun
So afraid of the sky
Touch it and taste it
But don't reach too high

Hurting and yearning
And yet so carefree
Waking and dreaming
The world at my feet

Just a kid amongst the Autumn leaves
A kid kicking around with no worries
Just a kid searching through the debris
Just a kid acting like I used to be
Just a kid acting like I used to be

Just a kid, just a man and a boy
Just a moment that time will destroy
