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.
Stay Beautiful
