“I awake to find no piece of mind

I said how do you live as a fugitive?

Down here? Where I cannot see so clear

I said what do I know? Show me the right way to go

And your feeling so bad cause you know

That the spies hide out in every corner

But you can’t touch them no

Cause they’re all spies

They’re all spies

I awake to see that no one is free

Well, we’re all fugitives, look at the way we live

Down here I cannot sleep from fear, no

I said which way do I turn?

Oh I forget everything I learn

And the spies came out of the water

And your feeling so bad cause you know

That the spies hide out in every corner

But you can’t touch them no

Cause they’re all spies

They’re all spies

And if we don’t hide here,

They’re gonna find us

And if we don’t hide now

They’re gonna catch us where we sleep

And if we don’t hide here

There gonna find us

And the spies came out of the water

And you feeling so good cause you know

That those spies hide out in every corner

But they can’t touch you no

Cause they’re just spies

They’re just spies

They’re just spies

They’re just spies…”

-Coldplay, Spies, Parachutes

The first time I listened to Parachutes, I sobbed through the entire thing. It’s hauntingly beautiful. I love it. And it still makes me cry.
