"U.F.O." as written by Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland, William Champion and Brian Eno....
Lord I don't know which way I am going
Which way, the river gonna flow
It's just seems that upstream, I keep rolling
Still got such a long way to go
Still got such a long way to go

Then at last, it's your right, I know, I swear
We'll find somewhere the streets are paved with gold
But it's fly, split the sky
But that's all right, sometimes
The sunlight comes streaming through the holes

    Lyric CorrectionLord I don't know which way I am going
    Which way the river's going to flow
    It just seems that upstream I keep rowing
    Still got such a long way to go
    Still got such a long way to go

    And that light hits your eyes
    I know I swear we'll find somewhere
    The streets are paved with gold

    Bullets fly split the sky
    But that's alright sometimes sunlight comes streaming through the holes

    Ohohoh

    Lyric CorrectionI believe the last line is: "Sunlight comes streaming through the holes."

    General Commenti think the one line that has been written here as "But its fly" is actually "Bullets Fly" i also agree with seanjleslie about the sunlight line.....makes more sense that way as well.

    Song MeaningI feel like this song has to do with a point in someone's life where they're just stuck, and really struggling to understand that point in their life. Wanting to achieve something, or maybe get somewhere that feels unattainable, and it's just hard. It's just difficult, and you can hear the crying out to whether it's God, love, or some kind of positive force, that the character knows he'll find hope. That eventually, he'll get there, and it'll be alright. That's what I take from it anyway. :) I think this song is beautiful, one of my favorites, I think the length and everything is perfect.

    General CommentIt's the nostalgia we feel when we struggle with resentments and relinquishment.

    General CommentSong about confusion with life. Pretty straightforward. I'll comment further when I finish understanding the story in the concept album.

    General CommentNOT " And found somebody somewhere in the streets"

    It is :

    "I know i swear we'll find somewhere the streets are made of gold"

    And also seanjleslie is correct too.

    Definitely "sunlight comes streaming through the holes"

    Who on earth wrote these lyrics on song meaning? They are deaf or there is crappy technology which tried to convert the audio into lyrics automatically...

    Either way, my favorite song on the album for its beauty and simplicity while retaining a lot of emotion.

    General CommentI believe this song is about a specific phase after a break-up. After several years in a relationship, everything is clear, your future is set. And then suddenly, it's over. And then you realize you have to move on, but everything is uncertain, you don't know which way to go..

    Too bad the song only take for 2 mins..
