"Sorrow 16" as written by and Bradfield/edwards/jones/moore....
Cut your hair in front of business men
Kill yourself and censor health
Destroy words and ignore their truth
want to die and have never worked
I feel like falling, I feel like falling
I feel like falling, I feel like falling
I feel like falling, I feel like falling
I can't feel, no need to care
Narcotic of ambition poisoned my air
Wearing hate like you wear money
Sucking down Vodka, spitting our Perrier
I feel like falling, I feel like falling
I feel like falling, I feel like falling
I feel like falling, I feel like falling
Oh the road is beautiful
You live stoned on obedience
Your vanity kills people
Paint your ego in blood
Oh the road is beautiful
The wall is a reason for you to believe
There's too many numbers for us to sleep
The wall is a reason for you to believe
Because there are too many numbers, numbers, numbers
Oh the road is beautiful
You live stoned on obedience
Your vanity kills people
Paint your ego in blood
Oh the road is beautiful
Beautiful
Beautiful

    General CommentSince no one else has said anything, I love this song, if only for the lines "Your vanity kills people, paint your ego in blood". Sums up a huge amount of Western image culture to me... How far people will go to improve their appearance, usually at the expense of others. Of course, I partake in it as much as most other people.

    General CommentThe lyrics for this are so dreadful but delivered in such a comical way that I can't help but laugh. The first verse especially makes me laugh. "Kill yourself and censor health", lolz. This should have been a single.

    General CommentThis song is the reason every Manics fan is able to spell 'beautiful' correctly...
