    I would like to go to another life sustaining planet. And I would like to know how to levitate. Thank you Chris Martin. Since you asked.

    If this band had any sense they'd play this song at every show. Absolutely phenomenal.

    I remember in 2005, when I was 15, listening to this album on the bus to school every morning, quietly watching the world pass by; I was new to music, but knew this felt utterly important. Just want ... somebody listening to what you say. It doesn't matter who you are. I couldn't have asked for a more important set of messages to grow up to. This still takes me right back to those mornings -- and the coda at the end of the song, I cannot believe how little emotional resonance it has lost. Perhaps even gained. I remember the mediocre reviews... people who had no idea what the world was to become. Album was ahead of its time.

    It correlates somehow with the spirit of that time. So much freedom. I feel like I travel from one city to another by one click, and sky is deep blue.

    The best song I've ever heard. Flows me away into 2003 actually, into my childhood. The funny thing is, I think I never heard it before 2012.
