Don't forget that Picturesque from the God Save the Manics EP uses lyrics by Richey.

Verse 1 - lyrics later feature in All Is Vanity
"I would like, I would prefer no choice. Just one bread, just one milk, one food for all.
I'm confused, I only want one truth. I really don't mind being lied to."

Verse 2 - from Doors Closing Slowly
"The shadow is, the shadow is the cross okay.
Judgement must, judgement must be willing today.
Silence is not sacrifice, crucifixion the easy life."

Verse 3 - from All Is Vanity again

"The luxury of one more dye,
Pretend humility, the ugly lie."

I don't know if they've ever talked about this. It wasn't mentioned at the time of release by my recollection, as it would have been big news.

With references to him writing riffs, does Sean play guitar, and has he ever been witnessed playing it?

No Manifesto, pretty sure during a montage for "I'm Just A Patsy" there's a brief clip of him strumming an acoustic. Presumably to work out an arrangement for it.

I have no proof but "Manorbier" has always seemed like a Sean original. No lyrics, but it feels like something Sean would have tinkered away on in the studio on his own.
