"Solidarity" as written by Roughton Reynolds, Chris Batten, Liam Rory Clewlow and Robert Rolfe....
Here tonight I clock a thousand heads
Here to unite, through common dreads
Now who's with me?
Now who's with me?

Something trips inside
That's been dormant for a thousand years
Now we can no longer hide
The immediacy of these fears

Our names will not be writ on water
And we don't need an ark
One day I know the dam will collapse
And we will be the current
Yes, what have you got for me?

And now the flood gates will open
Strike
You cannot open the door
You cannot open the door

We will sing as one in solidarity
We will swim together
No longer treading water
We're flowing with the tide

And you can taste the night
Don't waste the night
We will sing as one in solidarity
We will sing together

And still we will be here
Standing like statues
The time is now, belt it brothers

We will sing as one in solidarity
We will sing together
We will sing as one in solidarity
We will sing together

We will sing as one in solidarity
We will sing together
We will sing as one in solidarity
We will sing together

    General CommentThis is really, really wrong, I'm not sure on some of the lyrics for this either but I know for sure these a wrong, why not just wait for the album to come out?
    While I don't really want to add to the speculation as to what the lyrics are...
    Stuff [in these brackets] is stuff I'm not sure on

    Here tonight I clock a thousand heads
    Here to unite, through common dreads
    Now who's with me? (Ho!)
    Now who's with me? (Ho!)

    Something [sits inside?], that's been [growing?] for a thousand years
    Now we can no longer hide the immediacy of these fears
    Our names will not be written on water
    And we don't need an [arm?] (No way!)
    One day I know, the dam will collapse
    And we will beat the current!

    Yes... what have you got for me?
    Oooh!


    And now the flood gates will open
    Arrghhh!
    You cannot hold back the tide!
    You cannot hold back the tide!

    We will [sing as one?] solidarity! We will stand together
    No longer treading water, we're flowing with the tide
    And you can taste the night, don't waste the night!

    And still we will be here, (we're not hiding) standing like statues

    Solidarity, solidarity, we will stand together (We're not hiding)
    (And still we will be here, standing like statues)


    Don't know how you got "we will sleep together" from that.
    Anyways there's my take on it, it's probably not right either, doesn't really matter though we'll now the proper lyrics soon enough, Common Dreads is gonna be amazing!

    General Commentadsmylie has got virtually all of it right.

    But I think the last line is 'we will sing together' as opposed to 'stand together'

    General CommentThe start of this song is immense. A track that has to be listened to. I'd feel bad if I skipped it lol

    General CommentI agree with lcfcsunil. adsmylie had it pretty much right. One thing that's wrong in his version is after the creepy voice says "and now the flood gates will open" Rou (the lead singer) clearly does not say "wide!" He is really just saying "Yahhh!" in an inhale scream. Putting a Y in front of certain vowels enunciates words, syllables, and words like "yah". So essentially Rou's using "yah" for a dramatic effect and possibly to symbolize the water released by the flood gates. Even so, I think it makes that part of the song epic.
