Lifeblood

“Even when Lifeblood is at its most political, it remains highly emotional and personal. ‘Emily’ is possibly the peak of the album’s political engagement, but in focusing principally on women’s suffrage icon Emmeline Pankhurst (1858 – 1928), it remains firmly rooted in human experience. In the succinct line “the relics, the ghosts are down so many roads”, the song recalls not only the ghosts mentioned in other Lifeblood tracks but also the history and geography of the struggle for women’s suffrage in the UK and elsewhere.”
(tratto da Manic Street Preachers. A Critica Discography)



Canzone dedicata ad Emmeline Goulden Pankhurst, leader del movimento suffragista femminile britannico.
Emily, Emily your gift to me
Emily, a modern sense of beauty
Emily, as precious as your memory:
A simple word called liberty

The relics, the ghosts, all down so many roads
The relics, the ghosts, all down so many roads

Emily, so pity poor Emily
You've been replaced by charity

It's what you forget, what you forget that kills you
It's what you remember, what you remember that makes you
We used to have answers, now we have only questions
But now have no direction

The relics, the ghosts, all down so many roads
The relics, the ghosts, all down so many roads

Emily, so pity poor Emily
You've been replaced by charity

It's what you forget, what you forget that kills you
It's what you remember, what you remember that makes you
We used to have answers, now we have only questions
But now have no direction
