"We Apologise For Nothing" as written by Omar Abidi, Daniel Haigh, Charles Robert Simpson and Alexander Westaway....
Re-write these words upon my grave
And look down on everything we've loved
Loose lips sink ships and leaders
For this you need to lead us all.

For every change that you've put down on me
I've re-read this stone a hundred times.

Would you stand over these shadows and embrace our history?

We apologise for nothing
We apologise for nothing
Take the world away from us but
We apologise for nothing.

If I could gather strength a final time
And dream up a war to end all wars
Race lists and mist of vengeance
I don't fear your movements anymore.

Lets celebrate this change in turning tides
This revolution won't be televised.

Would you stand over these shadows and embrace our history?

We apologise for nothing
We apologise for nothing
Take the world away from us but
We apologise for nothing.

Cut me out of all of this
Cut me out of all of this you say
Just cut me out of all of this
Cut me out of all of this you say.

Would you stand over these shadows and embrace our history?

We apologise for nothing
Take the world away from us but
We apologise for nothing
We apologise for nothing.

Floods Lyrics
You can't all pretend
That you don't know enough
Enough to make sense
All this will be gone
And you can sink beneath
The rapture we've spawned

What have we become

You know we don't have all the entire world
To make the floods seem still
You know we don't have all the entire world
To make the most of this

Blood will bleed the blind
When the only thing diseased their lives
Let not the sun their lives
On the wrath of this inconvenient truth

What have we become

You know we don't have all the entire world
To make the floods seem still
You know we don't have all the entire world
To make the most of this

Just smile like the idiots you are

You know we don't have all the entire world
To make the floods seem still
You know we don't have all the entire world
To make the most of this

    General CommentIt's "grazed fist red mist of vengeance" which I guess is about outbursts of rage.
    This is a total guess but ~I thnk bits of this song are about immigrants, "would you stand over these shadows and embrace our history" (imperialism, slavery etc) and then "just cut me out of all of this, just cut me out of all of this you said" which could be about deportation and nationalism.
    Again, that's a guess. I'm never really sure about fightstar's lyrics.

    General CommentI kind of agree with SillyHatMan I think it is about a group of revolutionaries (rebels) who are caught, and at their execution they are told to beg for mercy and they will be freed (like Braveheart) and they say no, so their heads will roll away from them. That's just what I think

    General Commentteh lyrics are wrong. instead of "For every change that you've put down on me" it's "For every DRINK that you've put down on me". And insted of "Race list and mist of vengence" it's "Great fists red mists of vengence2 I got it off the album book thingy
