Go tell all your friends that this is the end
Go tell all your friends that this is the end
Go tell all your friends that this is the end
This is the end

I don't understand a word you're saying
What are the crowds running from
There's something in the air tonight
Something is wrong, spit it out!

I just fell from the Mothership
They said that
Your answers, were always lying on the ocean bed
Your answers, were always lying on the ocean bed

There's something in the air
There's something in the air
In the air, in the air
Tonight, I'm wide awake, I'm wide awake
In the air, in the air
Tonight, I'm wide awake, I'm wide awake

And I'll scream with a thousand voices...
I am sane
I am sane
My soul felt so safe up there
No self-centred natives destroying our earth

I just fell from the Mothership
They said that
Your answers, were always lying on the ocean bed
Your answers (your answers, your answers) were always lying on the ocean bed

Walk the plank, walk the plank, walk the plank
Walk the plank, walk the plank, walk the plank
Walk the plank
Your answers were always lying on the ocean bed
Your answers were always lying on the ocean bed
Your answers were always lying on the ocean bed
Your answers were always lying on the ocean bed

    I think this is very political but also spiritual, "my soul felt so safe up there" this could be talking about an out of body experience or even a psychedelic trip of some sort, but it all still has to do with the human issues such as conformity, war and political corruption, etc. It all goes hand in hand, but like I said, maybe a dmt trip? Many people describe dmt trips as going up and out into another somewhere, seeing aliens, being given messages about their fate and such. Really trippy stuff. But there's a shit ton that mankind doesn't know about life or the actual reality that we live in.

    I've thought a lot about this song and it sort of matches up with their overall alien-esque whole idea. The idea is that us humans are destroying our Earth and succumbing to consumerism. Enter Shikari can be seen as a group of humans, who may be aliens or may just be in contact with them, that see by the horrible reality and try to fight against it.

    This song is specifically about a person viewing these horrors from a different perspective, while he is forced to travel back and live knowing these realities.

    Wow, you guys just took everything they said literally. Think abut it. "What are the crowds running from?" Whoever the song is referencing to, must not conform to the usual lifestyle, as the crowds, or the normal people shun them. "Walk the plank" is the implying they were shunned, or not accepted. The "Mothership" is implying they are different, like aliens. Nothing about Enter Shikari is similar among an other band. Their political views and the way they write their songs are among the most advanced
    I've ever heard in lyrics. I can really relate to this song, seein as I don't really fit anywhere in a social category.

    Well for me this song is about Rory being abducted by aliens and he's super scared and he is telling him to spit it out and tell him what happened to him. And that the aliens are in the ocean or live in the ocean so their community is in the ocean .they live on our earth.
