journal for plague lovers lyrics – manic street preachers

pretend prayer
pretend care
makes everything seem so fair
these perfect abattoirs
these perfect actors
these perfect abattoirs

only a god can bruise
only a god can soothe
only a god reserves the right
to forgive those that revile him
only a god can bruise
only a god can soothe
only a god reserves the right
to forgive those that revile him

oh, such love
sweet stimulus
pg certificate and cuts unfocused
st*tches and wounds
doctored divinity
so much love there’s blind affinity

only a god can bruise
only a god can soothe
only a god reserves the right
to forgive those that revile him
only a god can bruise
only a god can soothe
only a god reserves the right
to forgive those that revile him
