And with these humble tools
We can trigger any emotion we choose
But we'll just settle to pump out repeated relics diluted with time


You see the airwaves are clogged up
But the fickle they, lap it up
They need to be drowned in condiments
And left to Ponder Sense

Warm Smiles, They Do Not Make You Welcome Here (x2)

Snap Back To Reality
The turbulence is throwing us from side to side
But no matter how hard you try
Surrounded by cannon fodder inundated with stagnant Sounds

You see the airwaves are clogged up
But the fickle they, lap it up
They need to be drowned in condiments
And left to Ponder Sense

Warm smiles, they do not make you welcome here (x2)

Transformation in Progress

Transformation in progress, transformation complete

Lightning strikes, A Flash Flood Of Colour

Lightning strikes, I can't stand the heat

Lightning strikes, A Flash Flood Of Colour

I... I... I... I can't stand the heat

A Flash Flood Of Colour

Warm smiles, they do not make you welcome here (x6)

    I don't know but it feels like he's singing about drugs or something. Xd

    Ive been trying to figure this song out as of late, and it being one of my favorites, i spent some time on it. It feels to me that this song is portraying the ignorance of human kind and how those who see past the fog (or can pay their way through it) are in control, while those left blind just live on content with never knowing. Its a long shot i suppose, but its what im getting out of it

    Its not that they let go every band has to evolve yes take to the skies was awesome but this is what they have always wanted making an album about morality which is basicly take to the skies then local issues then global common dreads then affoc it's perfect and there sound has gotten better they learned to mix their hardcore and electronic more effectively any dedicated fan would stick with them no matter what anyway

    I agree with 11:50 pm - this is pretty much the only song i like off the new album. I'm tired of their musically-political attitude. I highly regard take to the skies as one of my favourite albums ever just for pure musicianship and how much fun the songs are. They seemed to let that go with common dreads to an extent and even more so with a flash flood of colour.

    I'm glad they made this song though, this is just great.

    I think it's a bit more specific than that - sounds to me like there are some references to haarp in there? If you've never heard of it look it up, but it's basically a device owned by the us military, that is believed by many, to manipulate magnetic waves in order to control the weather. Many theorists suggested it was the cause of the earthquakes in haiti and japan...
