"Born To End" as written by and Moore/jones/edwards/bradfield....
Get some pain and I feel alive born to end
Close my eyes overdose on hell born to end
Get run over by no direction born to end
Breathing dead and I'm born to end born to end

Fall to the floor my baby, baby
I no longer believe
Fall to the floor my baby, baby
I've lost the love to sleep

H-bomb the only thing that will
bring a freedom to life
Underneath blue skies beautiful empty dying
Nagasaki dolls are burning

Europe freed by McDonald's and Levi's born to end
Can't afford it so I hate it all born to end
Images linger like repression born to end
Concentration camps of our dreams born to end

Fall to the floor my baby, baby
I no longer believe
Fall to the floor my baby, baby
I've lost the love to sleep

H-bomb the only thing that will
bring a freedom to life
Underneath blue skies beautiful empty dying
Nagasaki dolls are burning

Beg for mercy

    General Commentthe beginning bit, "Get some pain and I feel alive" seems to me to be about how the self abuse richey dealt with was the thing that kept him real. that statement has always rung true for me so just what i think.

    and i guess the rest is about consumerism and how it is destroying our culture, or in fact has BECOME our culture.

    General CommentProbably not about post communist eastern europe as the this song was written so soon after the USSR and the Soviet Block were disolved. More likely about the futility/emptiness of a consumer culture.

    General CommentOne of my favorite Manic Street Preacher songs, i love the riff and James Voice on this song. I agree with Zep about the lyrics. I think it's about eastern europe and thinks havn't improved.

    General CommentThe whole new idea of communism was born, just to end as quickly.
