Virginia State Epileptic Colony
Manic Street Preachers Lyrics


They sit around tables rendered dumb
Colored sticks of chalk are passed around
Today the doctors allow the illusion of choice
Tomorrow the necks split, there is no voice

Draw a perfect circle, sleep fetus-like
Six chalk colors the very meaning of life
They wake to strobes and half circled light
Confusion lifts with potassium percolate

V-S-E-C piggy
Piggy piggy
Piggy piggy

Clean cooking flower-arranging
Dissolves a kind of liberation

They confirmed in an NME interview that the soundbite at the end of the song is Russian. So if anyone knows that language translate it plz

Andrew Connors

I definately hear a Stateside influence with the song, and also a kind of homage to the late 80's/ early 90's sound.
