1985 Lyrics - Manic Street Preachers

Review The Song (2)



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 scars of birth,
nature unable to soften the words.

In 1985, my words they came alive,
sponsored links
friends were made for life,
Morrissey and Marr gave me choice.
In 1985, in 1985.

So God is dead, like Nietzsche said,
only 16 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.

In 1985..

I was 9 years old and remember the times; Coalmines being shutdown, lively-hoods and communities destroyed. All against the backdrop and constant reminder of an Olympic Gold a year earlier. A truly amazing rhetoric here from the Manics.



1985 - Manic Street Preachers | Reviewer: Dai | 11/7/04

Containing footage from both the local area where the Manics spent their early years growing up and from what I believe to be the Falklands War, this is a typical Manic Street Preachers video. No over the top footage and no special effects, yet the video is still compelling, particularly as I am from the same area as the Manics. A very nitty gritty video that shows the collapse of the local mining and steel industries and this is shown equally as much in the lyrics in the song, if at first u dont understand them, just read deeper into them and it talks about the detremental effect that the years surrounding 1985 have had on life in the South Wales valleys. The Manics back to their best?...not quite, but still class. (9/10)
