Manic Street Preachers – If You Tolerate

The future teaches you to be alone
The present to be afraid and cold
“So if I can shoot rabbits then I can shoot fascists.”

Bullets for your brain today
But we’ll forget it all again
Monuments put from pen to paper
Turns me into a gutless wonder.

And if you tolerate this then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this then your children will be next
Will be next, Will be next, Will be next.

Gravity keeps my head down
Or is it maybe shame
At being so young and being so vain.

Holes in your head today
But I’m a pacifist
I’ve walked La Ramblas but not with real intent.

And if you tolerate this then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this then your children will be next
Will be next, Will be next, Will be next.

“And on the street tonight-
An old man plays with newspaper cuttings of his glory days.”

And if you tolerate this then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this then your children will be next
Will be next, Will be next, Will be next.
