  • Lyrics
  • Enter Shikari close their third album with this five minute heartfelt track that reiterates and concludes everything they've said on A Flash Flood Of Colour. Rou Reynolds told Kerrang!: "We all have such weight on our shoulders - but it's also an honour, really. We are all alive in such an exciting time, we literally do have the choice of whether to start living sustainably or completely self-destruct. It's about that choice for our generation and the excitement and the flood of emotion that this brings. It's also about love and compassion and the force that keeps us all going and feeling like we have a direction, a meaning and - ultimately - a sense of purpose."
