Death and All His Friends
Looking for another song to post today, especially when I am not of a pleasant temperament, was a large task. My search did prove successful, otherwise I would not post here... or would I?

Anyway, I initially bought the "Viva La Vida" album without knowing that there would be an extra disc. A little fact about me: I like completing things, be it learning, drawing, writing, playing a song or video game, etc. I gave the CD to my sister and bought the extended album. I still have not opened it, but I just thought I would write this. In hindsight, this paragraph was a waste of time, as it is not relevant, seeing that this song is the last track of the original album.

What I meant to say was that this song is not unlike the Exogenesis trilogy of Muse. In their last few albums, Coldplay began experimenting with songs- making them longer, and transitioning the flow of the musical instruments in both pace and vitality. Beautiful. Certain lyrics attract me equally, if not more, than the feeling I get when listening to the transitions.

Alors, on to the lyrics. I hope you enjoy.

"Death and All His Friends" by Coldplay

"All winter we got carried away
Over on the rooftops, let's get married
All summer we just hurried
So come over, just be patient and don't worry
So come over, just be patient and don't worry

So come over, just be patient and don't worry
And don't worry

Try
Try

Try
Try

No, I don't want to battle from beginning to end
I don't want to cycle or recycle revenge
I don't want to follow death and all of his friends

No, I don't want to battle from beginning to end
I don't want to cycle or recycle revenge
I don't want to follow death and all of his friends

And in the end
We lie awake and we dream of making our escape
And in the end
We lie awake and we dream of making our escape"
