"Removables" as written by and Bradfield/edwards/jones/moore....
Conscience binds you in chains
Trail by stone hammer and nails
No-one made the holes but me
Misery mourns to be devoured

Killed God blood soiled unclean again
Killed God blood soiled skin dead again
Again everywhere again

All removables, all transitory
All removables, passing always
All removables, all transitory
All removables, passing always

Never grown preserved gently
A bronze moth dies easily
Unknown to others weak to me
Broken hands never ending

Aimless rut of my own perception
Numbly waiting for voices to tell me
For voices to tell me

All removables, all transitory
All removables, passing always
All removables, all transitory
All removables, passing always
All removables, all transitory
All removables, passing always

    General CommentWow, only comment?
    This song was one of the last written by Richey, and i think it pretty much sums up his mental state and damaged outlook on the world around him at the time of his disappearance.

    "All removables, passing always"...

    Nothing is permanent. A situation, a circumstance, even a life, can be changed, replaced; removed.

    General CommentI still can't hear "A bronze moth dies easily." It will ALWAYS be "I bronze my thighs easily.."

    General Comment"All removables, all transitory
    All removables, passing always"

    This part nearly the word in Buddhism.

    General Comment'Removables' was written by Nicky after going through a box of photos and finding one of himself flanked by Richey and their ex-manager, Philip Hall who had died in late 1993. The picture was a brutal reminder of the loss of two of his closest friends within a short time, inspiring this song of life's fragility.
