"To the Blade" as written by and Alex Robertshaw Jonathan Higgs....
So you think there’s no meaning
In anything that we do?
Maybe it's the silence
Maybe it's the war

Try to understand it
Try your best to understand the world
You're bleeding down the highway
You just want to listen to the roar

Well, you called him a liar
And you called him a piece of dirt
Never can you take it back and
Never can you make it right

In the final second
I think he knew everything you are
A plague on the horizon
In the cold arena where you're

Trapped
In the moment you met
In the lifetime I'm there
But she still doesn't love you
But you didn't know why
You can take it from there
There's a light in your eyes
That's the thing you would always say
That it is no worse

And they called you a witness
And they called you the next-of-kin
Maybe you don't hear their questions
Or you don't want to take it in

No one saw it coming
Nobody could see the underside
He was straighter than an arrow
Pointed at a target in his mind

And his bow was his anger
But his blade was this cursed time
He didn't want to be your prisoner
Anymore than you'd be mine

Try to know the difference
Sleep until your feelings lift away
I'll be waiting for you
A reservoir between us, as you're

Trapped
In the moment you met
In the lifetime I'm there
But she still doesn't love you
But you didn't know why
You can take it from there
There's a light in your eyes
That's the thing you would always say
That it is no worse

Yes
It's the back of your mind
It's the heart of a gun
It's the thought that you might have done it
But you can't know why
Don't you waste any love
There's a truth in the blood
There's a thing he was always saying
That it is no worse

    General Commentthe whole album was inspired by British politics and current events in 2014, this song is meant to be about Jihadi John and the murder of Alan Henning

    General Comment"It's written as a letter to someone who is close a person who's done something terrible. Basically, it's three times removed from the person who did the act themselves, and I'm talking to somebody - maybe their son has joined ISIS and is rejected from society or their wife has become a monster - about this feeling of not understanding why what is happening is happening, or how anybody could ever be driven to something terrible. I'm almost trying to comfort them... but there are also bits in the song that suggest that in the right situation anyone would do the same thing, and that's really very scary, but I think it's worth saying. It's something people won't consider for a second - that they could be one of these monsters if they were in different circumstances."
