Manic Street Preachers - Natwest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds Lyrics




Economic forecast soothe our dereliction
Words of euthanasia, apathy of sick routine
Carried away with useless advertising dreams
Blinding children, life as autonotomes

NatWest, NatWest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds
Blackhorse apocalypse
Death sanitised through credit
NatWest, NatWest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds
Blackhorse apocalypse
Death sanitised through credit

Barclays iron eagle, "33 injection"
Sold to advertisers, computer execution line
They give and take away, repossess and crucify
The more you own the more you are, lonelier with cheap desire

NatWest, NatWest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds
Blackhorse apocalypse
Death sanitised through credit
NatWest, NatWest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds
Blackhorse apocalypse
Death sanitised through credit

Prosperity - exports for Pol Pot
Prosperity - Mein Kampf for beginners

NatWest, NatWest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds
Blackhorse apocalypse
Death sanitised through credit
NatWest, NatWest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds
Blackhorse apocalypse
Death sanitised through credit

    The irony is there was an unskippable advert for the HSBC before the video played.

  2. Josh Crapper

    Economic forecasts soothe our
    dereliction
    Words of euthanasia, apathy of
    sick routine
    Carried away with useless
    advertising dreams
    Blinding children, life as
    automatons

    Midlands-Lloyds
    Black horse apocalypse
    Death sanitised through credit

    Barclays iron eagle, "33
    injection"
    Sold to advertiser, computer
    execution line
    They give then take away,
    repossess and crucify
    The more you own the more you
    are, lonelier with cheap desire

    Prosperity--exports for Pol Pot
    Prosperity--Mein Kampf for
    beginners

    2018, We miss you Richey!!! 😭💔💔

  6. Capta1nAsh

    Looks like a bad student video

  7. Mojopin 70

    I have to endure hideous artists like fat ginger Sheeran in adverts rudely interrupting my video singing in a faux American warbling voice before I can get to the good stuff

  8. Megafayce

    And then they later sold their arses to the major labels

  9. Remedial Gash

    This is bollocks - there was no video filmed for this - it's retrofitted bollocks. Given that it was 89. ffs.

  10. BR34NY

    Still can't believe Newport council smashed up the chartist mural, bunch of scum bags.

    revol148

    ....still look on the bright side the Starbucks in the city centre has closed down...

  11. Shazzer Mac

    This was never released as a single...so therefore no official video.

  12. Simon Sparks

    Songs about banks, in the begining the band went around all the banks to get funding tto start the band. All the banks refused

    pyrostrike uk

    +Simon Sparks and now look at them they're legends

    phillip carl Roberts

    I thought it was a hitman game review ,but thanx for directing me in the correct way.

  13. Weazelmania

    Ha! Jewport... chartist mural in all its glory! When was this made? I never remember there being a video, seems way too recent. I may be wrong.

  14. Michael Seymour

    I always took the line "they sanitize through credit"  to mean the saying "to clean up " in a financial gain .
    Sanitize/ clean ....geddit ?  

    EarlOfMaladyCrescent

    +Sheikh Ben Affleq You're absolutely right.
    Natwest. Natwest, Barclays, Midlands, Lloyds. Black horse apocalypse. Death sanitised through credit.

    Michael Seymour

    my lines better though ....innit ?

  15. kgkidz4life

    good song, but the video is terrible.

  16. Dave Branfield

    Video seems to have been shot in my home city of Newport (not really a suprise since Manics hail from Blackwood). No wonder the bluryness its a shit city wouldn't want people seeing it lol.

  17. Headwork

    how right did it turn out to be though...banks are fuckers!

  18. ptmtbiker

    It's "The more you OWN the more you are" :P

  19. kgkidz4life

    shitty video, but anyways, this song is really rocking and upbeat, and then you read the lyrics and you are like "fuck".

    underneonloneliness2

    kgkidz4life it’s not a single that’s why no professional original video

  20. JeezonTorst

    love it.

  21. Darcy Doogood

    According to Patrick Jones he did this video. Try and look for some deeper meaning and have a look at the lyrics and you might change your mind. If ALL (your words) his videos are 'amateurish' then 1985 can't be nice. Simple logic really for a simple mind. Will be seeing the Manics this time next week!

  22. ian welsh

    It's a shit video,I'd rather see live footage than this nonsense.

  23. palmer3977

    they are making a point you moron

  24. ian welsh

    Surely they could've got something better than this.....:-/

    Happy 20th anniversary Generation Terrorists!!

    bet social

    Happy 25th birthday Generation Terrorists, time flies when you're having fun, eh? Heart goes out to Richie wherever you may be. Saw them 3 times on the early tours and enjoyed immensely , first with Richie , then without, playing these songs, when still punky, before the watered down commercial mediocrity. (still respected and brilliant, just not as angry and tangible.)

  26. Yerunski

    Cool guys, old music with new videos :) Hope to once see you perform this song live!
    So please don't forget Holland in an upcoming tour :)
