Turn no more could be a manics track. It's great but i'm not sure it belongs on here.

I wouldn't say weak but the first half is all about the glory days of the pits with its associated propaganda - coal for hundreds of years yet - until we get to the decline and start hearing the people of the valleys (pobol y cwm). So it just becomes a lot more personal and there's more to be gained from it. All out is one heavy old break-point.

Inner eye opening to the stepped scarlet pyramid of the Eastern Seaboard Fission Authority burning beyond the green cubes of Mitsubishi Bank of America, and high and very far away he saw the spiral arms of military systems, forever beyond his reach.
And somewhere he was laughing, in a white-painted loft, distant fingers caressing the deck, tears of release streaking his face.
