Speed of sound

I’ve been following Coldplay since they first started and out of all the albums this one is just beautifully symbolic, perhaps it is only to me but the lyrics are wows.

There is just too much in the lyrics for me to put into words or explain, for each person it is different, what do they mean to you?

How long before I get in
Before it starts before I begin
How long before you decide
Before I know what it feels like
Where to, where do I go?
If you never try then you’ll never know
How long do I have to climb
Up on the side of this mountain of mine

Look up, I look up at night
Planets are moving at the speed of light,
Climb up, up in the trees
Every chance that you get is a chance you seize
How long am I gonna stand
With my head stuck under the sand
I’ll start before I can stop
Before I see things the right way up.

All that noise and all that sound
All those places I got found
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it then you’d understand

Ideas that you’ll never find
All the inventors could never design
The buildings that you put up
Japan and China all lit up
The sign that I couldn’t read
or a light, that I couldn’t see
Some things you have to believe
While others are puzzles, puzzling me

All that noise and all that sound
All those places I got found
And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it then you’d understand
Oh, when you see it then you’ll understand

All those signs I knew what they meant,
Some things you can invent
Some get made and some get sent ooh-ooh

And birds go flying at the speed of sound
To show you how it all began
Birds came flying from the underground
If you could see it then you’d understand
Oh, when you see it then you’ll understand.
