Enter Shikari - The Revolt Of The Atoms Lyrics




When truth gets left untouched
it accumulates like dust
When truth gets left untouched
When truth gets left untouched

I woke in a fluster
I saw my walls disintegrate, before my very eyes
Now that was a surprise
I looked out my window
I saw houses fracture and dissolve
Straight into thin air
That gave me a scare!

It's the revolt of the atoms
From London Town to Ancient Athens
Eliminate all traces of human life
They plan to wipe us out

It's the revolt of the atoms
From London Town to Ancient Athens
Eliminate all traces of human life
They plan to wipe us out

I found some intel
The atoms had conveyed, convened and connived
To the sound of my alarm clock
Now that was a shock
Helium spoke first
It cooled tempers and lifted spirits
But then it made a threat
And that made me sweat!

It's the revolt of the atoms
From London Town to Ancient Athens
Eliminate all traces of human life
They plan to wipe us out

It's the revolt of the atoms
From London Town to Ancient Athens
Eliminate all traces of human life
They plan to wipe us out

They plan to wipe us out
They plan to wipe us out

When truth gets left untouched it accumulates like dust
When truth gets left untouched it accumulates like dust
When truth gets left untouched it accumulates like dust
When truth gets left untouched it accumulates like dust
When truth gets left untouched it accumulates like dust
When truth gets left untouched it accumulates like dust

Everything is crumbling

  11. Octavius Castell

    it´s the revolt of crash bandicoot baby! yeah!!

    Ryan Clarke

    Octavius Castell so I’m not the only one who gets CB vibes from this. That little synthline about a minute from the end is pure Cortex from Crash 1! Love it though!

  12. bvv

    Best song on the album + An ode and maybe the Sights

  13. Данил Камчатский

    Вери гуд

  14. Jenjo

    This band is hilariously underrated even though it's better than most popular bands rn

  15. anormalusername

    You won't believe how long it took me to realize that the dots and circles on the radar make the Enter Shikari logo...

    David Cox

    I saw Rou on Saturday night and asked him what it was Sparky is looking for. He said it's a metaphor for using music to find ourselves, Sparky is soul searching.

  16. syk0

    definite tainted love vibe from the synths

  17. Samuel Blouin

    The beat remember me of " Tainted love''

    David Cox

    Can't unhear it °-°

  20. james irving

    DisintegrAte

  21. Group E

    Big up shikari on this one, got a weird sleaford mods vibe

  22. ApocTapus - Zac

    am I the only one who thinks there should be a lyric video for this similar to the one for Supercharge?

  23. Samuel Blouin

    This remind me of '' tainted love'' mostly around 1:03 .

  24. Alex

    Now that was a surprise

    Kallum Nisbet

    Quelle Surprise

  25. Hronis Arva

    Come to Greece you fuckerz <3

  26. Ale33321

    Ancient Athens is waiting to see you agan! <3

  27. Raphaël Schlayen

    I'm getting more and more into this album. Songs like this one are really cool, I love the fact that they experience so much, but i'm still disappointed by the absence of heavy punk/metal/electro drops. Rou's voice tho :*

    bvv

    Oh wow I think exactly the same !

    Cameron Hess

    Same, I think they like to do a heavy album/light album type pattern thing. The album before this is probably my favorite and I swear it could have been a direct follow up to their first.

  28. Dan

    The breakdown in this song is perfect.

  29. Aril Razak

    "The very first synth riff that comes on is one of the ear­li­est synth riffs we ever made as En­ter Shikari, so back in 2004..." woww :O

    Antivist

    where'd he say this?

    Joshua_Why

    Jaque Frique Rou said this when he was talking to "Kerrang!" about the album I believe :)

  30. STEPHANDEGGboarding

    best song on the album

    Thecrowrip1

    i think this and undercover agents

    Le king of literally all metal genres

    nah probs the sights

    Liam Micheli

    Airfield for sure

  31. Fabediedabedie

    This is so amazing!

    Trent 900

    Sardinendosefab

    Is that true?!
