Throughout their time together, Biffy Clyro have always forged their own path. The three band members are unapologetic about doing things their own way and have no regrets about the mistakes they have made. Dear God, address my dreams for me
All I learned is instant history
Biffy Clyro frontman Simon Neil sees the lyrics as summing up the group's "entire M.O. right now." He explained to NME
: "I don't think you're always cursed to make the same mistakes again. I'm sure that this generation will find new ways to make mistakes, but to me this feels like the start of a new century."
He added that "Instant History" is him looking back on his life and the stuff he's learned over the years. "There are things that I saw when I was growing up that I wish I hadn't. Even going to football matches in Scotland as a kid and being exposed to a lot of bigotry - that's part of the lexicon that you just take for granted," Neil said. "But why? Why do we need to just accept this s--t?"
