When the disappearing begins
The ghosts we kept within
Can break free from inside
And untie our blindfold eyes

To repel ghosts
To repel ghosts

So when the ghosts find you
Be careful but be graceful
For all will be revealed
When ghosts become set free

A soul in pain has no image to reclaim
To repel ghosts
To repel ghosts

A soul in pain has no image to reclaim
To repel ghosts
To repel ghosts

Build bridges and not roads
Make love make hate make war

A soul in pain has no image to reclaim
To repel ghosts
To repel ghosts

A soul in pain has no image to reclaim
To repel ghosts
To repel ghosts

Yeah, this really JAMS -- and makes me want to hear The Levellers, as well. Such poetic lyrics and passionate delivery!
Excellent.. 
Simple lyrics, but the music definitely elevates the song. To repel ghosts indeed!
I had never heard of them, prior to RP. Now I like several of their tunes. Thanx RP!
Excellent!
Gosh it's nice to hear the Manics again.
Reminds me of U2 at their peak. Love the ringing guitars - very Edgy... 😉

I usually avoid comparing one band with another but when this came on I thought it was The Adventures.  Great song all the same. 
Since I heard him overenunciate ghostssess I can't unhear it.

Yes, indeed.
Very cool riff
There are many more excellent songs on this album, worth to be played...

Pretentious:
1. Claiming or demanding a position of distinction or merit, especially when unjustified.
2. Making or marked by an extravagant outward show; ostentatious.

How exactly do you create pretentious music? In particular: how is this song pretentious? 

Honestly wondering... 
 

 
I don't find this song to be pretentious so I cannot address your second question, but your Definition 2 is a description that can easily be applied to music or any creative endeavor. Granted, that is a newer application of the word, but the Oxford English Dictionary defines "pretentious" as: 

Attempting to impress by affecting greater importance, talent, culture, etc., than is actually possessed:
i.e., "a pretentious literary device"

I believe creative output could be described by that definition, if one believed it to be true. Yes, the word is over-used (often incorrectly) and stylistically there are probably more concise adjectives one could apply, but it's all subjective anyhow. If you are asserting that a work of art could not possess these traits - that only a person/the artist can - then other adjectives such as "profound", "sad", "cheerful", or "important" could not be applied to works of art either.
I love this album, I love this song. Always overjoyed when RP plays the Manics. Edit: and of course this is especially relevant today, as it is the 20th anniversary of the release of The Holy Bible.

I can recall no examples in these posts in which the claim that something or someone was pretentious meets the criteria you cite. I think that the intended meaning is along the lines of, "I don't like this but cannot explain why." Which is fine by itself, but is unsatisfactory. Thus, the need to dress mere opinion in the trappings of serious analysis.
I find this particular song quite unpretentious, if you know what I mean.

Really? Wow, those wilds of Toronto must really be out in the sticks. The Manics are famous within and outwith the UK. Get with the program, dude :o)

I've got a lot of respect for them, not just because of their excellent music, but because of their politics and background. The Manics just go to show that it's not just horny-handed sons of mining toil and brass bands that come out of the Welsh valleys.
Sounds like the Church.

A woman came up to me and said
"I'd like to poison your mind
With wrong ideas that appeal to you
Though I am not unkind."
She looked at me, I looked at something
Written across her scalp
And this is what it faintly said
As I tried to call for help:

There's only one thing
That I know how to do well
And I've often been told
that you only can do
What you know how to do well
And that's be you
Be what you're like
Be like yourself
And so I'm having a wonderful time
But I'd rather be whistling in the dark
Whistling in the dark
Whistling in the dark
Whistling in the dark
There's only one that that I like
And that is whistling in the dark.

A man came up to me and said
"I'd like to change your mind
By hitting with a rock," he said,
"Though I am not unkind."
We laughed at his little joke
and then I merrily walked away
And banged my head on the wall of the jail
Where the two of us live today.

There's only one thing
That I know how to do well
And I've often been told
that you only can do
What you know how to do well
And that's be you
Be what you're like

Even though it's in regular rotation on my MP3 player, I'm still groovin' on it after first hearing it here some six years ago. It's also a GREAT song to use as a fear-nothing motivator while skiing.
This may or may not sound like Walking In the Air from The Snowman.

New album is getting nice reviews. 
to me this is the very Manic sound, so the others you mentioned sound like Manics, could be said...

There's too much repetition in this song:

"A soul in pain has no image to reclaim" - repeated 4 times

"To repel ghosts" - repeated 12 times

Repetition for effect is wearisome, especially when the imagery doesn't work.

Though a big PG fan, I got the same problem with "Red Rain."

"Say something once, why say it again?"  Now there's a lyric.

These guys are the best thing to come out of the Welsh valleys since the coal. Fine songs, good music, and sound politics (IMO). 9 from the Nottingham jury.

 

The complaints about repetition in music (an essential component of music — by definition) is what is "wearisome".

How about banishing it yourself with a daily dose of the Petagram ritual (LBRP)?
Building it on a close area and then just expanding it through the house should repell pretty much anything not belonging.
No... No devils included, it's archetypical angels all the way. ;)

Getting Rid of a Ghost

You have a ghost in the house. And for whatever reason you and your family want it gone. There are many different ways that you can go about getting an unwanted spectre out of your house and out of your life. The first thing you should do is to look at all your options as a family and decide as a unit which ones you are most comfortable with. You should also take a close look at the type of ghost you have. Is it truly evil and harmful or is it merely annoying and frightening at times? Are you and your family in any kind of danger?

Some people want to try to tackle the spirit alone and try to communicate their wishes to it. Other people due to religious beliefs and convictions may want to try other routes.

Some of the methods available are as follows:

Sweeping - In this method you get a natural broom and start in the corner of your house that is furthest from the door. You are literally going to sweep the ghost out. Every inch of your house including all areas with carpets. As you sweep you are going to keep telling the ghost that you want it to leave and that it may not return. Sweep right out the door so that end up outside. Once you have finished sweeping light a candle in each room of the house. Be sure to clean and dry the broom before you bring it back into the house or better yet, burn it.

Blessing-  Many people have found that it is often enough to simply to get a member of their local religious belief to come and bless the home.

Bells
-Or, you can ring a bell in every corner, and in every room

easy on the ears. maybee touching a little too easy but still  nice to have a soft cushion against the ears after all everyone loves the beatles. I think I've lost my point.

Thought first ,that this was Keane, but okay,this one!
Not one of their best songs,a bit plodding........

They may sound like U2 now and again, though not on most of their tracks IMO, but they're very unlike U2 in their politics. The Manics are old-school socialists from the Welsh valleys, unlike the designer liberalism of St Bonio. A fine number this, an easy 8 from the Nottingham jury.

Yes maybe MSP sounds like U2, but  with a very old guitar effect that The Edge played 25 years ago, indeed.. The last U2 lp is as good as an ACDC issue, what about Madonna... etc
Let's listen to good rock (large) music on RP.. and it's cool, even some time I'd like to play my list coming from France or other Europe. At that time iI don't really know how to manage it.
But, if anyone can explain Manic St Preachers, I would be glad to know about it. See you.
