Portishead – Roads lyrics
Oh, can't anybody see,
We've got a war to fight,
Never found our way,
Regardless of what they say.

How can it feel, this wrong,
From this moment,
How can it feel, this wrong.

Storm,
In the morning light,
I feel,
No more can I say,
Frozen to myself.

I got nobody on my side,
And surely that ain't right,
Surely that ain't right.

Oh, can't anybody see,
We've got a war to fight,
Never found our way,
Regardless of what they say.

How can it feel, this wrong,
From this moment,
How can it feel, this wrong.

How can it feel this wrong,
From this moment,
How can it feel, this wrong.

Oh, can't anybody see,
We've got a war to fight,
Never found our way,
Regardless of what they say.

How can it feel, this wrong,
From this moment,
How can it feel, this wrong.

    I think its about hate crimes, it was used in a documentary about a girl named sophie lancaster who was killed because she dressed in gothic clothing. When she sings, I got noboby on my side, surely that aint right. " it implies there are sides to be taken in a fight or "war" as its put in the song. "storm, in the morning light I feel. " it happens in the morning, a confrontation. "no more can I say, frozen to myself. " death, frozen to myself like in a coffin, frozen (the body grows cold,stiffins) when you mess with the punctuation this explanation becomes pretty likely. "we've got a war to fight regardless what they say. " sounds like homosexuality or someone being "differerent.
    From the "norm" in some way. Are told they are accepted by society but, that's not how it really is. "from this moment, how can it feel this wrong. " after a hate crime where someone is murdered, after so many of them, why is still happening. She feels the hate and it feels wrong. Because it is wrong.
