about

This swansong from Year Of The Flood features 11 tracks of epic and riff-laden d-beat. Drawing together 2 year's worth of material from both sold-out EPs, plus 5 unreleased songs that have all been mastered by Joe C at Subsequent Mastering

This hand-crafted package has been designed by the band and put together by Giant Iron Face, which includes a recycled card sleeve screenprinted with gold ink, and contain a set of photos with lyrics and thank you list printed on the rear

Heavily inspired by the dystopian literature of author Margaret Atwood, with the overriding themes of violence, greed, consumerism and social selfishness that threaten to overwhelm modern society.

Track Name: Islands
Keep ripping skin from your malnourished bones
Scum on the water, cancer on the land
The hunt for the flesh and the smell of the hate
We burn down the bridges and drown in our waste

We hang on the noose, tied around our lifeless throats
Ill fate precedes our death, islands rot and decay
(x2)

All lies submerge what remains
Untold hybrids of isolation
(x2)

Isolation...
(x2)

Keep ripping skin from your malnourished bones
Scum on the water, cancer on the land
The hunt for the flesh and the smell of the hate
We burn down the bridges and drown in our waste

We hang on the noose, tied around our lifeless throats
Ill fate precedes our death, islands rot and decay
(x2)

Lies submerge...
Isolation...
(x4)

All we tried to do is make a change
This swansong is bleak
(x4)
Track Name: Crimson Lake
I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight
A silent landscape... broken dreams... apocalyptic social scene
(x2)

A carmine love...
A carmine fever...
This fire is forgotten

I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight
A silent landscape... broken dreams... apocalyptic social scene
(x2)

A carmine love...
A carmine fever...
This fire is forgotten
(x2)

Apply some colour and seduce me
(x2)

Longing to be someone else
Longing to have something more
Longing to be someone else

Touch yourself and cry
(x4)
Track Name: Blysspluss
We are gone, BlyssPluss has taken it's toll
The end of days for the human race
Remove the waste and we will find an answer
Collapse and die, see our society fall

We are gone!
Remove the waste!

Push it forward
He has a plan

We are gone, BlyssPluss has taken it's toll
The end of days for the human race
Remove the waste and we will find an answer
Collapse and die, see our society fall

We are gone!
Remove the waste!

Push it forward
He has a plan
Push it forward
Advance... advance

Push it forward
He has a plan
Push it forward
Advance... advance... advance

We are gone, BlyssPluss has taken it's toll
The end of days for the human race
Remove the waste and we will find an answer
Collapse and die, see our society fall
Track Name: Slowdancer
This beating heart
Be still this beating heart of mine
We spin off our axis and blood is on our hands

Burn out the world
Crisis fuels the fire
We are no more, we are dead inside

This is our last dance
The corpses are warm and supple
Just spare a thought for them
When they lay buried in the ground

A jigsaw of modern life
Put together by creative views
Critical points of view

Unlock your thoughts
A jigsaw of modern life
Put together by creative views
Critical points of view

Slowdancer...

Crawl back... Flashbacks... Hold tight

This is our last dance
The corpses are warm and supple
Just spare a thought for them

Embrace the fallen few
One wrong turn in desperation
Life is cruel, the cancer spreads

Tears fill our eyes
We grow old, old and jaded
Ceremonies of innocence drown

Strike a light and dance with me
Track Name: Prophetic
The landscape lies bare, a deadened shadow land
A utopian view fucking with the natural order
Mankind is on it's knees... an evil unknown has crossed the border

Fear and suffering suffocates the weak
It's a struggle to survive and our future is bleak

Sterilise a nation, a nation of greed
This image of mankind is hard to believe
Sink or swim, we battle infection
The modern world still lacks perfection
(x2)

Crake says it's for the best
Redefine the natural order
Crake says it's for the best
Redefine, then redefine
(x2)

Sterilise a nation, a nation of greed
This image of mankind is hard to believe
Sink or swim, we battle infection
The modern world still lacks perfection

Crake says it's for the best
Redefine the natural order
Crake says it's for the best
Redefine, then redefine

The intention of change was darkly prophetic
An original logic turned against itself

Digest, then fuck, the downfall awaits
(x4)
Track Name: Gripless
Honey, I can read your mind
(x2)

Get a grip on your life
Get a fucking grip

Thoughts say put it behind you
Start your existence again

No one has trust in anyone
Paranoid is not the word

Confusion breeds isolation
There is nothing but lies and deceit

How can greed dominate?
Depression soars through our veins

Help you... help them serve justice in this world

Patience is running out and you can see it in their eyes

Honey, I can read your mind
(x2)

Confusion breeds isolation
There is nothing but lies and deceit

I drink alone
Why are we living?
(x2)

Enter the edge of sleep
A danger appears from the darkness
Youth is crushed by violence
Beasts await within the cave
(x2)

Gripless....
Track Name: Engineers
Time moves on... progress
Life is raped of nature
Execute the brave for blueprints
Buried deep, the pioneers evolve

The pioneers evolve

Hopes and fear exploited
Life stands still with silence

Enhancement, growth, bleeding out the red
Knowledge is power, industry is dead

We live, love and steal
We live, love and steal too much
We live, love and steal
We live, love and steal too fucking much

Who could predict this?
One too many lies and greed
Track Name: (No More) No Means Yes
Life becomes a contest but desperation shall subside
Sexual torment and abuse corrupts the soul

We're in it for the species
We're in it for survival
Let's open the airways

Crake's victims are sleeping now, awake in their final dreams
Punishment has been dealt and the drowning must end

Drag!... Drag!... Drag them back in!

Reset the clock
No means yes
Reset the hour
No means yes

Push!... Push!... Push them back away!

Reset the clock
No means yes
Reset the hour
No means yes

No means yes
Track Name: Canals In The City
The day will come when you will be the same
The same as all desperate souls
Life spirals out of control
You can't stay ahead of the game

You bought into your destruction
The tide will wash away your sins
You bought into your destruction
It takes your life, hoards everything

Rivers keep the peace
Money talks while murderers walk

(x2)

The rivers keep the peace
Money talks while murderers walk
Canals in the city
The water speaks the truth
Canals in the city

The day will come when you will be the same
The same as all desperate souls
Track Name: Messages With No Sender
Stalking their pray with a natural perception
A dystopian climate on hollow ground

Close in for the kill
Adapt to survive or be eaten alive

Deception is foremost
You're out of sight but never out of mind
Carpe Diem

Close in for the kill
Adapt to survive or be eaten alive

A theory created
Now the weak must suffer

Escape reality
Killing the old to torture the young
Escape reality
Primal screams drown out domestic dreams

High on a mountainside
I can see the fire rain down
Punishment for their sins
Punishment for their souls

Tonight is the dark of the moon
Star light, star bright... I hear a voice

Tonight is the dark of the moon
I hear a voice
Track Name: Psychodrama
It's in our heads, it's in our homes
The flood has taken control
(x2)

We need to talk
Nothing left to say
We need to talk
Nothing left to see
(x2)

Goodbye...
Remember Killer...
I love you...
Don't let me down...

We need to talk
Remember Killer
(x3)

We need to talk....
