Manic Street Preachers First Republic Lyrics

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 want to play, yes we want to play
In burnt out palace ruins

You once gave us war, racism and slavery
Cut out all our tongues and ****ed our industry
Now you've revealed something, you're human after all this
But let's clap our hands and **** our dear princess

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

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

I crown myself, myself a king
And declare a first republic
We want to play, yes we want to play
