Kevin Carter

Un’altra canzone ferocemente anti-monarchica, tema cui i Manics sono sempre stati particolarmente affezionati. Si vedano anche Repeat (UK) e We Her Majesty's Prisoners.
You are so alone
In Kensington Palace
We should be content
In these damp terraces

Thank you for this view
From our council estates
I hope you have really
Guillotined your own head

I crown myself, myself a king
And declare a first republic
We wanna play yes we wanna play
In the burnt out palace ruins

You once gave us war
Racism and slavery
Cut out all our tongues
And fucked our industry

Now you've revealed something
You're human after all this
But let's clap our hands
And fuck our dear princess

I crown myself, myself a king
And declare a first republic
We wanna play yes we wanna play
In the burnt out palace ruins

I crown myself, myself a king
And declare a first republic
We wanna play yes we wanna play
In the burnt out palace ruins
