"Return to Energiser" as written by Roughton Reynolds, Chris Batten, Liam Rory Clewlow and Robert Rolfe....
You look like you
Rented a smile
From someone but you
Rented the wrong size

Take it back
You should take it back

That's not what you want
That's not what you want

Cause that would grow more
That's not what you want
That's not what you want

We still have
The element
Of surprise
Defence shields

Return to energizer (x4)

Wave your bloody white flags
Give in

That's not what you want (x4)

That's not what you

We still have
The element
Of surprise
Defence shields

Return to energizer (x8)

And all hell breaks loose, when you're here...(x4)

    General Commentrou wrote this on the shikari forums :

    Energiser was written after I’d finally naively realised how fake some people can really be. The opening section describes an experience where this person was putting on such a false happy character/front that they actually looked like a puppet or something with a smile that really didn’t fit their face! I then use the whole quaser/laser quest thing as a metaphor. These people need to ‘return to the energiser’ to reload their gun, i.e. come to terms with whatever problem that is making them act and address it! Re-think their actions and don't be afraid to reveal their real feelings (re-energise) haha pretty far fetched really, sorry for such a brief explanation!

    General Commentthis song is sort of balladish
    i went to q-zar (a laser gun game) and all i could think of when i was out of ammo and my armor was saying 'return to energiser' was this song

    General CommentApparently it's about Laser Quest / Quaser (sp?). Random - yes, but such a great song.

    General Commentwait... this song is about laser quest like laser tag?
    i guess it fits, it's just really random
    its still an ammmmmazing song.
    did anyone else realize after he says return to energiser 8 times, when it gets quieter he whispers "chicha chicha ba ba ba" not words just like sounds. the first time i heard that i laughed idk why.

    General CommentReturn To Engergiser is like my favourite Enter Shikari song at the moment. The other week we actually went to Quasar-none of us could stop singing the song everytime we went back to base to get energised (saddlyit made all my team easy to find. Ooops!)

    I LOVE TO QUIRKY SOUNDS MADE NEAR THE END. its so awesome, i have to make the sounds along with the track everytime i play it.

    LOVE IT!!!!!

    General CommentThere's a Quaser pretty near where they were brought up...i don't think its a homage to their electro roots...not sure. stuff about defence shields and waving a white flag to surrender...i think it's just a song.
