Wall

Album: Common Dreads (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Rou Reynolds told Kerrang! May 2, 2009: "This song has a ridiculous metaphor for using a house as a person. One of the lyrics goes 'I'm going to paste you up, cover you in wallpaper and screw shelves into you...' It's stupid but fun. It's about the increase of CCTV and [Labour Home Secretary] Jacqui Smith bringing in many anti-terror laws and exploiting them. We're the most-watched country in the world."
