"Today Won't Go Down In History" as written by Roughton Reynolds, Chris Batten, Liam Rory Clewlow and Robert Rolfe....
You might never meet me,
For I am King.
And as we march into the storms eyes,
I find relief in the rain.
I can hind as I lead my army,
Into certain death.

Eyes over you. [x2]

Feel Alive. [x4]

And I wanted you to know,
Today won't go down in stone.
(Feel Alive)

And I wanted you to know,
I never meant for this.
(Close your eyes)

And I wanted you to know,
I never meant for this.
(Close your eyes)

Today won't go down in history,
So shut your eyes.

    General Commentsmall ammendment to the first verse:

    "You Might never meet me, For I am King.
    And as we march into the storms eyes,
    I find relief in the rain,
    I can hide as i lead my army
    Into certain Death"

    taken from the lyrics printed in the album sleeve

    General CommentHave to agree with Fallen Interlude.

    I think it's about leading an army but knowing that you will lose. Not going down in history meaning that the event won't be remembered.

    Awesome song; different from other songs on the album.

    General CommentHe is leading an army to their death, but didnt realize it till it began.

    seems to me like Rou feels like he might be leading ES in the wrong direction, and the army might be the fans, who would be upset from anything bad happening to ES ( the king).

    General CommentGoing by the storyline of the album, the 'King' is leading an army to the aliens/Gods/whatever but he knows they won't win the battle.

    He finds relief in the rain, because the rain can be used as an excuse as to why they lost.

    I love this song, and I think the Interlude after it represents the army travelling towards the aliens (because when the aliens first arrive they are shouting 'And Still We Will Be Here, Standing Like Statues' (in the second track, Enter Shikari)) and then we have Return To Energiser during the battle (and the army shouting 'return to energiser' 'that's not what you want' etc etc)

    Man I ramble.

    General Commentthey didn't play this in southamptom. Gutted. I love this song. I think its about knowing your about to die, and realising you never really left a mark and that you won't be remembered. Thats my opinion anyways x

    General CommentThe explanation I have heard about it was that it is supposed to be a Dictator apologising to his citizens:
    "And I wanted you to know/I never meant for this"
