about

Flames is a snapshot, a glimpse of a future, a slide back into right wing ways via a desire by some in the UK to push the myth of Victorian splendour as an ideal to aspire to in todays society. The obsession with taking our country back, isolating our nation and promoting a utopia that never existed. Even more timely considering the parallels taking place across the Atlantic.

LYRICS

There’s a flag to hide the misery
As we’re defacing history
Who are you to disagree
A flag to control anxiety
But you will never see
What we do behind the scenes

Are we learning while we’re burning
Shadows all around
And are we thinking whilst we’re sinking
Head first to the ground

A flag to protect regalia
As we create insomnia
Through filament-burnt eyes
We build this fake euphoria
As we hail victoria
As everybody dies

Are we learning while we’re burning
Shadows all around
And are we thinking whilst we’re sinking
Head first to the ground

We are the gods now
Are the gods now

A flag whose glory always shines
Rebellion in the lines
Uniformed in the morning breeze
A class that stands imperious
And celebrates victorious
A nation on its knees

Are we learning while we’re burning
Shadows all around
And are we thinking whilst we’re sinking
Head first to the ground

We fall in flames (repeat)
