"Science of Silence" as written by and Richard Ashcroft....
We are on a rock, spinning silently
But I'm safe when you're here with me
These questions I'm asking, they've been haunting me
I need some security, can't you see?

Her love was like a fountain rushing and pouring down
The darkness is putting out the light in me
She's a well to be dug, she's a university
A cosmic library - wait and see

We are on a rock, spinning silently
Won't you get close to me
We are on a rock, spinning in infinity
Won't you get close to me

Is it my genes that have made me?
Is it the things I took, is it the things I said
Does karma rule?
Well if there's a God well can you hear me now?

I am crying out, hoping you know
And in my baby's arms I need no faith
I need no words to define myself
And when I'm holding you, light rushing through

I want to make it now, safe and straight
We are on a rock, spinning silently
Baby get a hold of me
We are on a rock, spinning in infinity

Baby consoling me
Oh I don't know when the fear's going to end
I don't know if my prayers are received - the ones I send
(We are on a rock, spinning silently)

I can't live in pain and fear
(We are on a rock, spinning in infinity)
Oh I see so much joy and it makes me scared
(We are on a rock, spinning silently)

Oh I don't know if my prayers are received, until the end
(We are on a rock, spinning in infinity)
Oh I guess it ain't offet for you to pray for peace
Oh baby I don't know where I'm going

All I know is that I need you as a friend

    General Commentwhoa... I'm really surprised by this song, It's somehow not the Richard Ashcroft I knew of before. He sings about happiness, and it seems he has found it in his family. It seems so simple... this song makes me somehow happier as well.

    General CommentMy god, this is an absolutely gorgeous song. Richard Ashcroft is a pretty underrated song writter. Human Conditions was one of the better albums over the last couple years, should've gotten more press than it did.

    General CommentYeah this is proper uplifting. I love how "God in the numbers" rolls into this song on the album, like his depression is being lifted.

    General CommentI love this song so much! Loved the Verve, love Richard Ashcroft!

    Well if there's a God well can you hear me now?
    I am crying out, hoping you know
    And in my baby's arms I need no faith
    I need no words to define myself
    And when I'm holding you, light rushing through
