Weird Dreams

Album: World's Strongest Man (2018)
  • This song's stream-of-consciousness lyric details the coming on of an anxiety attack, something Coombes told the BBC comes from personal experience.

    "The lyrics kind of came on the fly, it's a panic attack, sort of describing the moment when things go a bit weird and it's not right. I'm lucky that I don't have many of them, thank God, but when they do hit... I'm a bit susceptible in that way," he said. "I just let go on this one and I do find myself shouting those lyrics, I've got to get my f------ head together, that was my way of getting it out I guess."
