"Save Our Selves (The Warning)" as written by Sean Bellers-smith, Gavin Butler, Matthew Davies, James Davies, David Rhys Lewis, Gareth Lawrence, Daniel Carter and Jason Perry....
So this is how it's gonna be, you and me are history
We will never look the same but the end is coming
Your time is running out, the rain is pouring
So raise your voice and shout

This is a blackout and you'll find out
It's gonna come and take everything you love away
A blackout coming to your town
We'll never run away so stand and fight another day

So this is where it all began, this is where the story ends
We will never need to leave, we keep running
The walls keep coming down, this is a warning
So raise your voice and shout

This is a blackout and you'll find out
It's gonna come and take everything you love away
A blackout coming to your town
We'll never run away so stand and fight another day

Going out, going out, going out
Going out, going out, going out
Going out, going out, going out
Going out, going out, going out
Going out, going out, going out

Going out, going out, going out
Going out, going out, going out
Going out, going out, going out
Going out, going out, going out

Going out, going out, going out
Going out, going out, going out
Going out, going out, going out
Going out, going out, going out

This is a blackout and you'll find out
It's gonna come and take everything you love away
The blackout coming to your town
We'll never run away so stand and fight another day

This is a blackout, this is a blackout
This is a blackout

    General CommentIt sounds to me they're singing "this is a blackout" not "the blackout", but I can't be 100%.

    My OpinionI'm pretty sure this is all right.
    The one bit I wasn't 100% sure on was the "Going up, going up, going out".
    Anyway.
    Enjoy :)

    General Commentits definitely this is the blackout

    i think this song is about WW2

    " This Is The Blackout "
    As In The Blitz
    They Used To Turn Off All There Lights So You Couldnt Tell There Was A Town There
    Also In The Title

    ( The Warning )

    as in the 5 minute warning

    "It's gonna come and take,
    Everything you love away."

    About death and familys!

    General Commentits:
    'this is a blackout, and you'll find out...'

    according to kerrang:

    'the lyrics in the chorus say "this is a blackout" - but its not referring to us, it could mean anything. its just saying stand up and fight for yourselves and for what you believe in. its a positive message; dont let things bring you down.'

    so yeah. :)

    General CommentI'm seeing the positive message, but i thought WW2 first too(@Rickmassacre).
    This song has a sorta sad feeling like, the waiting before a blitzkrieg. like when you know something bad is coming, something horrible.
    you've been warned but there is nothing you can do to prevent it; you just have to wait and hope to god you make it out alive.

    -now heres my bit: it says "so stand and fight another day" so i think your both right. lemme explain meh-self.
    The blackout is referring to the preperation of turining off all the lights to hide from the coming attack, but the song is saying if all you do is wait and hide, its going to happen anyway and take everything you've got.
    So they are saying, stand and fight. when something is coming, and there's no way of avoiding it(avoiding a blitz would be a fuckin feat ha) don't just bury you're head and avoid it: stand for what you think and fight back. don't lay down and give in to tyranny *cough damn frenchies*.
    pretty badass song
