Repress and restrain
Steal the pressure and the pain
Wash the blood off your hands
This time she won't understand

Change in the air
And they'll hide everywhere
And no one knows who's in control

You're working so hard
And you're never in charge
Your death creates success
Rebuild and suppress

Change in the air
And they'll hide everywhere
And no one knows who's in control

Change in the air
And they'll hide everywhere
And no one knows who's in control

    Matt bellemy has said this song is about a man that has hit breaking point due to so much pressure in his life. being controlled by the state and no control over himself. he comes home to his wife after killing someone. really is a beautiful song.
