1993 all over again: 11 - Manic Street Preachers

11. Manic Street Preachers - From Despair To Where

Here's what Richey Edwards told the Melody Maker about this track:

In the Western world, living conditions really aren't that bad. Most people have somewhere to live and enough to eat - and yet most people are unhappy. I don't think many people ever come home at night thinking 'What a great day that was!' And that's why totalitarianism will always be tempting - because a fascist leader can say 'I'll make all your decisions for you. You don't need to have any responsibilities. I'll take care of your life.'
