Send me to Venus
Send me to Mars
A crippling fear
Of colliding stars

A break from tradition
The first little taste
A general reminder
A tear on your face

But the beat of your heart
Is alone in the dark

The place where we met
Is haunted by thieves
Sifting for memories
Through the fallen leaves

Whole pack as your soul
My race with the clock
Immunity over
Pick a moment then stop

But the beat of your heart
Is alone in the dark
The beat of your heart
The beat of your heart

Loneliness forever
Loneliness forever
Holding back a river
Holding back a river
All the kings are coming
Marching to the sound from your rib cage

So send me to Venus
Send me to Mars
Seen all your failures
All your scars
Seen it all burn down
We danced in the sparks
We danced to the beating of your broken heart

Loneliness forever
Loneliness forever
Holding back a river
Holding back a river
All the kings are coming
Marching to the sound from your rib cage

Oh let it all burn down
We built our house on the Sun
Oh let it all burn down
We didn't know what we'd done
Oh let it all burn down
We built our house on the Sun
Oh let it all burn down
We didn't know what we'd done

Loneliness forever
Loneliness forever
Holding back a river
Holding back a river
All the kings are coming
Marching to the sound from your rib cage

Would you hold on?
Would you hold on?

All the kings are coming

But the beat of your heart is alone in the dark
The beat of your heart
The beat of your heart
The beat of your heart
The beat of your heart

    My InterpretationI think Editors made a song about the struggles in a relationship (send me to venus= love; mars= fight) But with growing fear (colliding stars). He then experiments and succeed but ends bad, his first scar (break from tradition/ tear). As in daily life he has to give all to succeed (whole pack). He keeps trying and failing. The other people feasts (dance on sparks and broken heart) on his failures and scars, so he gives up (burn it all down) with little hope left (would you hold on?) until the kings (wisdom) come on the sound of his rib cage. But for now his heart stays alone in the dark and maybe forever as he gives up?
