The Riverbed

Album: Grey Britain (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Gallows Frontman Frank Carter (From Kerrang! April 18, 2009): "The lyrics at the beginning of the album were pretty condemning and suggest there is nothing left, whereas this point - the beginning of the second half - is a bit more positive, in the most negative way. The words are very family orientated and are about us as brothers in the band. When the end comes, I know I won't be alone. I know I will never be as lonely as I have been. I have overcome a few things in the past year and I know I will never feel as alone as I did then."
