It’s Here It’s a Secret – A Secret Society
It’s Here It’s a Secret – A Secret Society

Its gone beyond me – beyond my vulnerability
Science fiction for the masses with no reality
Ban all this religion wipe it out and start again
Democracy the highest state that man has learnt too invent

For all the glitter – For all the poise
For all the love that – We have destroyed

Its gone beyond me – beyond my vulnerability
Science fiction for the masses with no reality
Ban all this religion wipe it out and start again
Democracy the highest state that man has learnt too invent

The Secret Societies – Prevail like Deities
Protecting us from our fear – To keep our Libertines

God save the politicians
God Save the mad parade
God save all the people
Whose lives we have betrayed

    General CommentI love this song. This is probably the best Manics song in ages, actually.
    I think it's about government - how they do evrything behind closed doors (A secret society) whilst ignoring the real problems of poverty and inequality ('For all the love that - we have destroyed')
    Could also be taken as a call for good old fashioned secular socialism ('Ban all this religion') and dismay at what democracy has 'achieved' in the past 200 years.
    Nicky has said that the 'Libertines' line is a direct reference to Doherty, Barat and co.

    General CommentWhen it says "Science fiction for the masses, wih no reality" It is saying how religion has no proof of being real, as if it was fiction. When it says "Democrcy the highest state that man has learned to invent" it is saying that Democracy is supierior to other beliefs man kind has invented I.E The idea of religion.
