If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next Lyrics - Manic Street Preachers

Review The Song (3)



The future teaches you to be alone
The present to be afraid and cold
So if I can shoot rabbits
Then I can shoot 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 will be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
Will be next
Will be next
Will be next

Gravity keeps my head down
sponsored links
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 will be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
Will be next
Will 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 will be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
Will be next
Will be next
Will be next

Turn yourself inwards | Reviewer: ahlmann | 2/17/13

One of the great introspective songs of our songs.

Please don't look at your outside world when listening to this song, instead turn inwards, and just feel how you feel listening to this song, watching your thoughts come up, what do these thoughts make you feel like? Anger? Fear? Or just sadness? Why would you feel this? Allow yourself to find out, and a change will happen instantly. Only if we change our ways inwardly, may we pass the future of our world to our children.

When I did this, I just cried, and knew intensely what I was crying about. This is the age of Aquarius, connect all your thoughts to yout deeper feelings and learn to swim in the flows of your own tears. Then come back again, relax, and face the outside world with your deeper understanding.

and don't forget to have fun with this :)

Horrifyingly True | Reviewer: Gypsy 23 | 7/15/12

Bad things happen again n again,coz we tolerate and bad people become aggressive coz there are no one to tell /punish them.We dont pay attention until it happens in our life.We should change our attitude.why we will live only for ourself.Living in a fearful lonely world is like living in hell..we should make the world beautiful for all.for that we all have to be n work together.

Yes | Reviewer: Perry | 6/16/10

Honoured and delighted to be the first comment to such a meaningful song, with soul, passion, and a clear message.


This song is sheer brilliance by Manic street preachers, since i was young i remember one line from it. "If you tolerate this, then your children will be next"

Need i say more?
