Common Dreads

Album: Common Dreads (2009)
  • A needless and harrowing future is developing
    For our generation and generations to come
    But as I walk the chartered streets of this familiar oblivion
    I recognize nothing but unweilding consciousness
    In which we have almost comfortably drowned

    It is madness, this normality is madness
    We are clinging to manufactured crippled constraints
    We must no longer commute between brand-ladened homes
    And quickly accepted aimless roams from
    Our factories of slavery, to raws of elusive bravery
    We must unite

    And we must let the flood gates open
    Here tonight, I clock a thousand heads
    Here to unite, through common dreads Writer/s: CHRIS BATTEN, LIAM RORY CLEWLOW, ROBERT ROLFE, ROUGHTON REYNOLDS
