A Soundtrack To Complete Withdrawal Lyrics – Manic Street Preachers

My old school that’s closed its doors
The once green fields on the concrete floors
And the roads are choking full of misery and fear
But my vision’s getting clearer and my mind it feels so free

And the work is hard and the wages are low
But the smile’s still here and the river’s still slowing

All I can do is sit here and moan
But my heart still bleeds
For this place that I call home

My boyhood made of dreams of love
The happiest of times sitting with my
[?]
But the bridges, the houses now dominate
The
[?] and the super schools
The breeding grounds of hate

But that’s one
[?] still limping my mind
They seem so perfect, so simple and so kind
Just mew and my brother, we’re kicking a ball
The world so close and so beautiful

And I got no answers, I place no blame
I just feel a longing and I wanna hear your name
As I walk and run through these once green fields
It’s easier to see water’s disappeared

And the air is getting heavy with memory
[?]
The joy and the freedom, but freedom at what cost
And the air is getting heavy, the memory
[?]
The joy and the freedom, but freedom at what cost

Is this your inheritance, is this all that’s left
The mountains we climbed are now mountains of debt
And the air is getting heavy with memory
[?]
The joy and the freedom, but freedom at what cost

We had joy and we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
Yeah we had joy and we had fun
We had some seasons in the sun
And we had joy and we had fun
We had some seasons in the sun
Yeah we had joy and we had fun
We had some seasons in the sun
