Orwellian – Manic Street Preachers Lyrics

[Verse 1]
We live in Orwellian times
It feels impossible to pick a side
In sentences that dance and hide
The truth becomes a broken lie

[Chorus]
Every way you look, every way you turn
The future fights the past, the books begin to burn
I’ll walk you through the apocalypse
Where me and you could co-exist
Every way you look, every way you turn
The future fights the past, the books begin to burn
Words wage war, meanings being missed
I’ll walk you through the apocalypse

[Verse 2]
We live in Orwellian times
A deepening sense of fear and crime
On the playing fields, in exclusive clubs
And the people machines still making fools of us

[Chorus]
Every way you look, every way you turn
The future fights the past, the books begin to burn
I’ll walk you through the apocalypse
Where me and you could co-exist
Every way you look, every way you turn
The future fights the past, the books begin to burn
Words wage war, meanings being missed
I’ll walk you through the apocalypse

[Instrumental]

[Chorus]
Every way you look, every way you turn
The future fights the past, the books begin to burn
I’ll walk you through the apocalypse
Where me and you could co-exist
Every way you look, every way you turn
The future fights the past, the books begin to burn
Words wage war, meanings being missed
I’ll walk you through the apocalypse
