You focused on the pain
To escape the mundane
But whose to blame
When despair is everywhere

I am ashamed
To say I feel the same
I'm hiding on the stage
Too scared to turn the page

Is there any choice
When all you hear is noise?
Lightning to avoid
Move through all that noise

Hey!
Hey!
Hey!
Hey!

I feel for sexual disdain
Can it drive you insane?
You said you'd peel
Your pictures off your wall for love

I am afraid
To ever feel the same
I'm hiding on the stage
Too scared to turn the page

Is there any choice
When all you hear is noise?
Lightning to avoid
Move in all that noise

Hey!
Hey!

Is there any choice
When all you hear is noise?
Lightning to avoid
Move through all that noise

You threw it away
You threw it away
You threw it away
You threw

    General CommentAn actually surprisingly awesome song about poor old Richey Edwards from Manic Street Preachers. This band needs recognition!
