The Flood Lyrics

Standing, on the edge of forever,
At the start of whatever,
Shouting love at the world.
Back then, we were like cavemen,
We'd beam at the moon and the stars,
Then we forgave them.

We will meet you where the lights are,
The defenders, of the...

    I think this song is about the boys starting again. "Learning how to dance the rain" (i think) means that they were still learning how to be a band. "We were holding back the flood they said we'd never dance again" (i think) means that when the band broke up they thought weren't going to have another carrer in music. "Watch your mouth son or you'll find yourself floating home" (i think)is about Robbie Williams when he re-entered the band. Saying if he went off the rails he's out. "There's progress now where there once was none" (i think) means that they are coming and they're better than they were before. "Although no one understood, there was more of them than us learning how to dance the rain" (i think) means there was more competition and it was hard to get back into being a band. "There was more of them than us now they'll never dance again" (i think) means that the other competition may have won but they fail to keep on going, however, Take That keep on going.

    "Back then we were like cavemen,
    But we map the moon and the stars,
    Then we forgave them." ----> The coming of star peoples on earth, thats why so many lost civilization including today are most interested in stars rather that earth, or sea

    " Here we come now on a dark star, seeing demons, not what we are. " --> NIBIRU /Annunaki, sirius peoples, etc

    I feel like the lyrics of this song can be interpreted to be about our armed forces. I know that wasn't it's original meaning but the lyrics really fit. 'No one understood we were holding back the flood' shows how we just live out normal lives when there are men and women out there protecting us from dangers that were oblivious to.

    The release of this song just happened to coincide with me reading, The Genius of the Few, by Christian O'Brien. Where he strips away religious undertone in ancient Sumerian scripts, The Torah, and Old Testament, to reveal a most intriguing tale about man's rise from the stone age to civilisation, gratis help from mysterious 'outsiders'. The lyrics seemed to reflect that.

    "Watch your mouth, son, or you'll find yourself floating home" is a line from Star Wars 4: A New Hope. There's also a reference to defenders of the faith and "dark star". Just sayin' - draw your own conclusions!

    It's about the flood of Noah's day when the fallen angels corrupted the bloodline of creation. (Gen. 6) They were called the watchers and 'there were more of them than us, now they'll never dance again'. There were 200 more that were immediately judged and sentenced to Tatarus. Now the fallen angels have been banished to the dark star and they are coming back once again to corrupt humanity's DNA/genetics (Genesis), and they do not accept that they are demons. They are defenders of the wrong faith: of the faith we are means their own separate faith, the damnable kind, that they were like cavemen because mankind could not catch up on the technology once the flood took their kin away.

    The fallen angels will appear as alien savior, ascended masters to a world in peril. But they DO NOT want to save us, but themselves. Meeting where the lights are: alien evacuation, modification, etc.

    Tiny minds and eager hands will try to strike but now will end today, means there will be war upon earth and they will appear to be bringing peace.

    There’s progress now where there once was none, where there once was none, then everything came along, means the deception progress to fool the masses has been slow because tv, movies and media are programmers of much false doctrine, but now the aliens will look like they are our 'creators' who come to help us save ourselves.
    We were holding back the flood they said we’d never dance again.

    This last statement means they will begin again what they started and tamper with man's DNA to try to make gods.

    As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be (at the return of Christ). It is already happening: hybrids that are not fully human. Research the nephilim.

    This song has a cryptic meaning which only those in the know will understand. The general public are not meant to understand. The lyrics alone have generated alot of interest because the fans cannot identify with them. The suggestion of a dark star and demons may indicate occult refferences.

    I know for a fact, that this song is about a football match. Take that represnt the away supporters as "there were more of them than us" and "the defenders of the faith we are" means that we support our team come what may. Also they are such positive supporters that they say their team will "run so hard we'll tear the ground away." "We will meet you where the lights are" represents the flood lights on the pitch. "There’s progress now where there once was none, where there once was ah, then everything came along." This represents the progress that the team are now making. Now i have pointed this out I am sure you can see many more similarities. Enjoy :D

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    The Flood is about the struggle of the boys to make the come back as a band. Especially now again with Robbie Williams.
