1985 - Manic Street Preachers

In 1985
I placed a bet and lied
Losing all that i had
At least with all my heart intact

In 1985
Orwell was proved right
Torville and Dean's bolero
Redundant as a sad Welsh chapel

In 1985, in 1985
So god is dead
Like Nietzsche said
Superstition is all we have left
Circle the wagons we're under attack
We've realised there's no going back
We've realised there's no going back

In 1985
The civil war failed why
Kept hidden like the scars of birth
Nature unable to soften the words

In 1985
My words they came alive
Friends were made for life
Morrissey and Marr gave me choice

In 1985, In 1985
So god is dead
Like Nietzsche said
Only sixteen years of age he said
See all the tears for the walking dead
We've realised there's no going back
We've realised there's no going back

In 1985
I placed a bet and lied
Losing all that i had
