Manic Street Preachers - A Billion Balconies Facing The Sun Lyrics




We've finally found a way
To consume boredom every day
We've all become our personal gods
We've all become so sad and lost
So sad
So sad and lost

A billion balconies facing the sun
A billion faces turned to their screens
The perfect answer to camouflage our screams
A billion lies becoming the truth
An ecstasy of the eye
As wide as eternity tonight

We found expression for our hate
Without any kind of consequence
Who needs patience anymore
When all our pleasure's virtual

A billion balconies facing the sun
A billion faces turned to their screens
The perfect answer to camouflage our screams
A billion lies becoming the truth
An ecstasy of the eye
As wide as eternity tonight

Manic Street Preachers A Billion Balconies Facing The Sun Comments
  1. Abuelo

    Once I fell into this record and I never get out.

  2. Valeria Tripolino

    Amazing, powerful song!!!

  3. Mario Alt

    Feat. Duff McKagan

  4. Jack Duncan

    This is one of my favourite MSP songs and I’ve been a fan from the beginning and bought everything they’ve released.

  5. Jack Molay

    The Manics have written the soundtrack to my life. There are parallels too, my brother committed suicide on the eve of his 27th birthday. I live about half my life in Australia, so the song Australia resonates pretty strongly with me. I’ve lost a close member of my family to cancer. I know the difficulty in wanting them to keep sleeping because in sleep she didn’t suffer, but selfishly always wanting them to wake up so I could have even just a few more minutes of them to myself.

  6. Flávia Limoeiro

    We've finally found a way
    To consume boredom every day
    We've all become our personal gods
    We've all become so sad and lost
    So sad
    So sad and lost
    A billion balconies facing the sun
    A billion faces turned to their screens
    The perfect answer to camouflage our screams
    A billion lies becoming the truth
    An ecstasy of the eye
    As wide as eternity tonight
    We found expression for our hate
    Without any kind of consequence
    Who needs patience anymore
    When all our pleasure's virtual
    A billion balconies facing the sun
    A billion faces turned to their screens
    The perfect answer to camouflage our screams
    A billion lies becoming the truth
    An ecstasy of the eye
    As wide as eternity tonight

    Used to listen this song in 2011 on the gili islands having the best time of my life. Great song and band

  8. JordsWales 96

    Seen the mani a live twice, blew me away. Also, Duff mckegan from guns and roses plays bass on this.

  9. Hassan Lamnouoir

    nice sales buddy.
    I had a market of dogs once then it so happens I retired

  10. LoLzZ85

    Too few views for this song

    David Wallace

    @LoLzZ85 I agree. MSP are my favourite band and, despite their extensive back catalogue, including some class songs, this is up there among my favourites.

  11. underneonloneliness2

    you can buy the album on ebay or in a music shop

  12. David Wallace

    It's from "Postcards From A Young Man" should be on itunes. Failing that look in any good record store!

  13. emmery ledin

    Does anyone know where I can buy this song/album? I can't seem to find it on iTunes. ):

  14. James Blake

  16. Monika Dzwonkowska

    Rewelacja Maniakalnie zasłuchana żałuję że tak późno!!

  17. MegaKopite

    BEST BAND EVER

  18. icepaw99

    Right now, Manic Street Preachers are my second favourite band, but second is pretty amazing considering my favourite band, Marillion, have been my favourite for about 4 years. This whole album is awesome, and right now I can't go a day without listening to Manics.

    Jack Duncan

    icepaw99 They are the best band in the world. That was always their ambition when they were young. Their other ambition was to release the best debut album by any band ever. In my opinion they achieved that with Generation Terrorists. They wanted to release such an album and then immediately break up the band. I’m so glad they didn’t do that! They’ve given me years of pleasure.

    great band, great song........long live MSP
