Manic Street Preachers - Some Kind Of Nothingness Lyrics




The sky is falling in on you
Crushed any happiness you knew
The tree gave more to you than love
It's still there but baby you're gone

Remember you, stretched out in the sun
All alone forever, conclusions foregone
Will you find some kind of nothingness?
Still and lonely like an old school photograph

Laid yourself out under the stars
Some peace at last so don't be sad
A fitting end to your end
But baby, death's our only friend

Remember you, stretched out in the sun
All alone forever, confusions foregone
Will you find some kind of nothingness?
Still and lonely like an old school photograph

Your future glories all empty of thoughts
There's beauty doing nothing at all
It's what you wanted, it's what you got
Your final search for truth has stopped

There's beauty doing nothing at all
Never, never stop
Never, never, never stop
Never stop
Never stop
Never stop
Never

Remember you, stretched out in the sun
All alone forever, conclusions forgone
Will you find some kind of nothingness?
Still and lonely like an old school photograph

  10. J M

    best band ever

  11. Abuelo

    "Featuring Ian McCulloch" missing in description.

  12. Neil Jones

    Correct me if I'm wrong, are the two cities in this video Cardiff and Liverpool?

  13. Yalter777

    JDB is class

  14. MrLaizard

    THE MOUTH RULES

  15. Yveline Lorenzi

    jE T'aime

  16. Spooky Ghost

    I love you Ian Mcculloch

  17. Marcin Kołakowski

    Now I make everything new

  18. RicheyClear

    The most beautifully melancholic lyrics I've ever heard.

  19. Ch'ti Rock

    Un bon groupe de rock qui alterne bien leurs propre styles de musique avec les valeurs de la vie, comme dans la simplicité, moi je dit : respect, ils mérite d'être beaucoup plus reconnu !!

  20. mnueet

    Love Love Love this song...this is another example why they are the greatest band in the world.

  21. David Jones

    gospel bit at the end is amazing

  22. Robert Coulton

    The most beautiful lyric ever.

  23. Marcin Kołakowski

    please see Arbucake

  24. Marcin Kołakowski

    Ta piosenka ma tak wspaniały nastrój... ma w sobie duszę... emocje napisały tę piosenkę i tak powinno być....

  25. Laurence Sauvage

    GREAT SONG!!

  26. Cerian J

    Long live the Manics!

  27. neil jones

    I'm guessingthis video is part filmed in Cardiff and partly in Liverpool, if you know different please tell

    Merciful Zeus!

    1:33 definitely looks like St John's Gardens, by the Gladstone Monument.

    Peter Archer

    Yes, the red brick buildings, and the large, open space that James walks across are in Cardiff Bay. Also the boat sails out from the bay into the Bristol channel. Not far from their old (now demolished) studio, and the flat that Richey owned.

  28. Sean Jones

    why this song never made the top 40 when released? mental...

    Misha Atreides

    I know, right? Personally, I think it's their best song.

  29. Amanda Díaz

    This song is about richie?

    Solo Faces

    Amanda Díaz a black Labrador I’d say

  30. Michael Seymour

    Some kind of bliss / nothingness .

  31. Renata Smesnjavec

    odlično

  32. Nikki Starlover

    McCulloch <3

  33. Robert Coulton

    A beautiful tribute to Richey. I love this song so much

    als660

    I never knew Richey was the subject!! Thank you!

    Chicken in Gravy Deluxe Cat Food

    als660 it's about dogs actually...no joke. Nicky explains it on the album DVD. Look at the lyrics again and they take on a different meaning

    als660

    Brilliant, I can hear that now, Cheers Mate!!

    Jon Hopkins

    Yeah...except it’s about Wire’s dog that passed away. “Remember you stretched out in the sun”

    Scott Currie Music

    It's actually a tribute to Nicky's dog Lucy, but a beautiful tribute to anyone who means something nonetheless.

  34. Art News Channel

    The sky is falling in on you
    Crushed any happiness you knew
    The tree gave more to you than love
    It's still there but baby you're gone

    Remember you, stretched out in the sun
    All alone forever, conclusions foregone
    Will you find some kind of nothingness?
    Still and lonely like an old school photograph

    Laid yourself out under the stars
    Some peace at last so don't be sad
    A fitting end to your end
    But baby, death's our only friend

    Remember you, stretched out in the sun
    All alone forever, confusions foregone
    Will you find some kind of nothingness?
    Still and lonely like an old school photograph

    Your future glories all empty of thoughts
    There's beauty doing nothing at all
    It's what you wanted, it's what you got
    Your final search for truth has stopped

    There's beauty doing nothing at all
    Never, never stop
    Never, never, never stop
    Never stop
    Never stop
    Never stop
    Never

  35. Tonga Kewir

    and then
    o sea y esto otro!!

    Tus futuras glorias todas vacías de pensamiento
    Hay belleza que no está haciendo nada de nada
    Es lo que querías, es lo que recibiste
    Tu última búsqueda de la verdad se ha detenido

    Hay belleza que no está haciendo nada de nada
    Nunca, nunca te detengas
    Nunca, nunca, nunca te detengas
    Nunca te detengas
    Nunca te detengas
    Nunca te detengas
    Nunca

    Te recuerdo, estirándote al sol
    Completamente solo para siempre, las conclusiones se veían venir
    ¿Encontrarás algún tipo de nada?
    Inmóvil y solo como en una vieja foto escolar

  36. Tonga Kewir

    lyrics in spanish. hey gringos. in sudameric can speack many leanguajes!
    here for you friends of the north

    las letras


    El cielo se está cayendo sobre ti
    Aplastó toda felicidad que conocías
    El árbol te dio más que amor
    Aún sigue ahí pero cariño tú te has ido

    Te recuerdo, estirándote al sol
    Completamente solo para siempre, las conclusiones se veían venir
    ¿Encontrarás algún tipo de nada?
    Inmóvil y solo como en una vieja foto escolar

    Te tendiste bajo las estrellas
    Por fin un poco de paz así que no estés triste
    Un fin apropiado para tu final
    Pero cariño, la muerte es nuestra única amiga

    Te recuerdo, estirándote al sol
    Completamente solo para siempre, las conclusiones se veían venir
    ¿Encontrarás algún tipo de nada?
    Inmóvil y solo como en una vieja foto escolar

    live long and prosper !

    Free World

    Respect brother!

  37. Mark S

    The backing singers on this are 10/10

    Nikki Starlover

    Nah, I wanna kill that choir as much as I'm into the Manics and Ian

    wolfgangstratocaster

    Yes, i think that the choir brings emotion

    Marcio Silva

    @Nikki Starlover So you think that choir is there against Bradfield's will?

    Nikki Starlover

    I think the band may been a bit too attached to it on the album, actually

    Marcio Silva

    @Nikki Starlover I believe it's a conscientious choice. Being the musician James is must be taken into account more than just temporarily being attached to a single feature of instrumentation Nikki.

  38. Andreia Pires

    Big Mac!!!

  39. abel gnecco

    knowing already that he has a baritone type voice, Ian's vocals dont you think there are too low? should on the final mix put it higher, in my opinion.
    btw love this great song and the gospel bit towards the end, love the manics!!!!!

  40. jari ärlig

    i just love this song!!

  41. Foxyon55

    You can defiantly see and hear Richy's influence, inspiration in this 'un.

    Grammarly Sucks

    *definitely

  42. Wuttipong Punpitug

    Brilliant Song ;w;

  43. Twick Twick

    Remembers me to Queen´s "let me live", Manic Street Preachers are one of the most talented actual bands, they are so versatile and can compose on different styles..

  44. Foxyon55

    Ian McCulloch tiz his name. pnf x

  45. Nel B

    Stay Fucking Beautiful <3

  46. Froylan Hernandez

    Gran cancion, exelente letra. El coro gospel es genial

  47. Dmitry Cool

    Hello from Russia!!! You are the best!!!

  48. secallen

    Who is that tramp in the parka?

    John Yates

    secallen Ian mcculloch, just in case you weren't kidding
    from echo and the bunnymen

  49. MrTomas09

    I love this song too...my feeling is that its about reflection and maybe missing someone from the past

  50. Jimmy Brown

    Amazing tune...good duet

  51. Dexterror

    Still writing amazing songs about loneliness 20 years later!

  52. Michael Seymour

    Love the gospel bit -
    articulation of the way we feel isn't it folks ?

  53. Danilo Araujo

    Manics are very lucky with their duets. Traci Lords, Nina Personn and now Ian McCulloch!

  54. manic4manics

    Manics and Bunnymen: a combo that could only be brilliant.

  55. Jenna Mallow

    JDB is brilliant man,all of his songs are magical,i love him every time even more,when i listen his songs:)!!!

  59. fadge1963

    great song mac is faultless what a voice

  60. Mc Nardo

    AMAZING

  61. benhadar

    this is not visible in the US. just seeing it now.

  62. Юлия Скотская

    beautiful song. and the moment on the 3rd minute where they sing the chorus and the sun shines through the clouds on the sea is epic.

  63. Karolina Rousseau

    Dlaczego Polacy zawsze muszą przejmować na YT jakieś debilne filmiki o jodłujących bobrach kanadyjskich, a tutaj nie ma ani jednego polskiego komentarza? Nie rozumiem :/

    Mario Alt

    Już jest :)

  64. kiefer sutherland

    R.I.P whitney

  65. Kgeddoe

    @thisaccursedman I wouldn't question their motives like you do, and I think Tigers and Postcard are just fine, but I do prefer the Manics without these "hard rock with strings" arrangements. Even the better songs on This Is My Truth or Postcard are the ones without strings.

  66. bensimps123

    @sorathehero82 i want to know what happened to him , strange they never found any remains of him

  67. Sebastian Clarke

    @Ledonist Although I really don't want to get into a tiresome studenty discussion over people's perceptions of art, I would say that art as a medium is something that gives us insight into the truth by being an artificial mirror image of life. However, the way I judge Art is if its exciting or poignant or beautiful or ugly or well executed: in essence if it makes me feel something. This video didn't do that. "Art is the lie that helps us understand the truth". This didn't help. The song does.

  68. sarkoplazmikbirkulum

    23.500 watch ?!?!?!?

  69. skintrade

    Sounds good... my dad saw him in a welsh bb

  70. Sebastian Clarke

  79. Jake Vaughan
