(Don't, don't..)

This ordinary thing could be more colourful than you say it is
The cardinal sin is to tell a lie but now you must give in

The storm came down on you just like it was the end
And then you hid, you covered your head
But face the rage and feel how thrilling it can be
Cause in bedlam there is always beauty

It's shaking, it's shaking the ground it's a-breaking
And you can't control it, so own it and feel good
Searching for glory, now tell me a story
I don't want to hear that you no longer feel good
Romanticise (x4)

There's promising doors that are open at the end of the hole
And your loneliness calls, filling the spaces where you could have explored

Despair came down on you just like it was the end
And then you hid, you covered your head
But face the rage and feel how thrilling it can be
'Cause in bedlam there is always beauty

It's shaking, it's shaking the ground it's a-breaking
And you can't control it, so own it and feel good
Searching for glory, now tell me a story
I don't want to hear that you no longer feel good
Romanticise (x2)

The storm came down but don't you runaway, runaway
Despair came down but don't you hideaway, hideaway
It feels good if you just face it

It's shaking, it's shaking the ground it's a-breaking
And you can't control it, so own it and feel good
Searching for glory, now tell me a story
I don't want to hear that you no longer feel good
Romanticise (x2)

(Don't, don't..)

    My InterpretationIt's a really uplifting song, like a pep talk assuring you that it "feels good if you face it" (your anger, your disappointments, your frustrations, your problems). So just fucking "face the rage" and "own it". Don't hide/runaway from your despair, chase that fucking storm and find the beauty being in that crazy whirl.

    Don't underestimate your issues as trivial--you have the liberty to romanticise your little troubles. Revel in your little troubles up until the point where you can stop saying "you no longer feel good". And don't forget that:

    "There's promising doors that are open at the end of the hole
    And your loneliness calls, filling the spaces where you could have explored..."

    Once you're done romanticising that shitty storm you find yourself in, think about the light at the end of a tunnel. It's hard to be optimistic, but they're there "at the end of the hole". Keep going until you're no longer missing out on the "beauty" beyond this bedlam.

    Now, romanticise!
