    (1 of 2) A gloomy end of the world song, not in lyrics - but feeling, texture, landscape & emotional evocation. When it changes to a slower piano mode at the end, Gary Lightbody CONFIRMS it all by singing 'please just save me from this darkness'. Not the type of song you'd like play frequently, but isn't the western neighborhood silence you encounter night after night a tribute to this song? Who would've thought mankind sacrificed trillions of brains & men in the name of science & war, only to create absurd communities that, if the individual wasn't strong or has distractions like study, work or TV - you'd go totally insane at the eerie DARK evening silence. The powers that be that have caused this are the real MADNESS. I'd rather be an animal than a thinking, living, feeling human being to be Frank.

    (2 of 2) & you can throw me Nicole Kidman or Naomi Watts to marry, & I'd spit at them because IT WILL NOT END the deafening silence of the west. I wonder how it is in Africa or China etc. Maybe their collectivism is what makes the latter a POWER economy with no trashy sleazy salacious media to play a part in what's crippling western suburbia. I'll shut up & read my newspaper now to reassure me I'm lucky & safe.

    @josfox Really? What does it for me with this song is the chorus; I find the lyrics of the first verse to be a little contrived. If it wasn't for that, it might be my favorite song on the album. But in my opinion it isn't the only decent song. Fair enough about the radio overdoing it with Chasing Cars, but there are some other great songs on Eyes Open! Shut Your Eyes? You're All That I Have? No argument on Final Straw being a better album though.

    This is genuinely the only decent song on Eyes Open. Possibly because it was the only one not played to death on the radio, I can't stand Chasing Cars now thanks to that. Everything Snow Patrol does pales in comparison to Final Straw though.

    I could care less about Grey's Anatomy, I listen to this because of the band and the MUSIC, and not some trendy TV show.
