∟ “Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot… But what of the man? I know his name was Guy Fawkes and I know, in 1605, he attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament. But who was he really? What was he like? We are told to remember the idea, not the man, because a man can fail. He can be caught, he can be killed and forgotten, but 400 years later, an idea can still change the world. I’ve witnessed first hand the power of ideas, I’ve seen people kill in the name of them, and die defending them… but you cannot kiss an idea, cannot touch it, or hold it… ideas do not bleed, they do not feel pain, they do not love… And it is not an idea that I miss, it is a man… A man that made me remember the Fifth of November. A man that I will never forget.”

"Atlantic was the first thing that we recorded for the record and it was actually gonna be a b-side. It was weird (…) It’s a piece of music that I’m really really proud, and I think we’re all really really proud of as a band. It’s a great example of a piece of music that we’ve all contributed to, and it wouldn’t be the song that it is unless we all put something special into it. The reason it’s the first song on the record, is because it’s got such an incredible atmosphere to it, and I guess it’s about having a terror of being alone - it sets the mood of the record really well, both musically and lyrically."
