First Republic - Manic Street Preachers

You are so alone in
Kensington Palace
We should be content in
These damned 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 burnt out, palace ruins

You once gave us war
racism and slavery
cut out all our tongues
and f_cked our industry
Now you've revealed something
You're human after all this
But let's clap our hands
And f_ck our dear princess
