"Up with the Birds" as written by Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland, William Champion, Leonard Cohen and Brian Eno....
The birds they sang, at break of day
Start again I hear them say
It's so hard to just walk away

The birds they sang, all a choir
Start again a little higher
It's a spark in a sea of gray

The sky is blue dream that lie 'till it's true
Then taken back the punch I threw
My arms turn in oh, those clumsy things
Send me up to that wonderful world
And then I'm up with the birds

Might have to go
Where they don't know my name
Float all over the world
Just to see her again
And I won't show or feel any pain
Even though all my armor might rust in the rain

A simple plot
But I know one day
Good things are coming our way

A simple plot
But I know one day
Good things are coming our way

Oh, yeah

    General CommentA decent closer. Its an uplifting song that follows Don't Let it Break Your Heart (that song details the breakup fallout). The lyrics are actually lifted from a Leonard Cohen song in places and while it bothers me just a little the amount of 'borrowing' they do on this album this is the successful one. Princess of China and Teardrop failed, but this was pretty beautiful.
