"Dead Martyrs" as written by and Bradfield/jones/moore....
Dead martyrs
All stigmartys
Dead heroes
For fear of zeroes

Dead martyrs
Always take it further
Dead heroes
Know no fear

Living for some happiness
Find nothing that satisfies
Had a beginning but it got no end

Got no future
Just dead stars for dead eyes
Got no future
Just dead stars for dead eyes
Got no future

Dead stars are always the blackest
Dead heroes the living empty
Dead martyrs hang on forever
Dead martyrs always take it further

Living for some happiness
Find nothing that satisfies
Had a beginning but it got no end

Got no future
Just dead stars for dead eyes
Got no future
Just dead stars for dead eyes
Got no future

Got no future
Just dead stars for dead eyes
Got no future
Just dead stars for dead eyes
Got no future

    General CommentI can't believe there are no comments yet.

    This song is very intense. Clearly, about the idea of dying for a cause, but I think it's also about the desperation that leads to wanting to sacrifice one's self. Being desperate for a purpose, willing to throw yourself into a cause... The idea of having no future, I think, is what leads to this desire to be a sacrifice. If you can't find a cause to live for, die for one to find meaning. very Richey-esque ideas.

    Also, the idea that martyrs are 'played' up- they're always the blackest, 'always take it further'. They are seen as very extreme. and once dead their image is manipulated and played up.
