​Anthem For A Lost Cause

This song is by Manic Street Preachers and appears on the album Rewind The Film (2013).

It's a cold and lonely message at the end of a song
It invaded hearts and minds, but they couldn't get along
It can ask you to remember, it can ask you for a dance
So it seems that every song now is just one last chance

Take this, it's yours
An anthem for a lost cause
Now ashes, bone and splinter, what was once a glittering prize
The composition rites

Oh redemption, love and departure, I think your work is done
Paris, Saint Petersburg, don't need a tower of song
Escape's not worth the capture so walk that lonesome road
No joy or earthly rapture; nothing to take the load

Take this, it's yours
An anthem for a lost cause
Now ashes, bone and splinter, what was once a glittering prize
The composition rites
Take this, it's yours
An anthem for a lost cause
Now ashes, bone and splinter, what was once a glittering prize
The composition rites

(Yours)
(Cause)

Take this, it's yours
An anthem for a lost cause
Now ashes, bone and splinter, what was once a glittering prize
The composition rites
