"Death and All His Friends" as written by Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland and William Champion....
All winter we got carried away
Over on the rooftops, let's get married
All summer we just hurried
So come over, just be patient, and don't worry
So come over, just be patient, and don't worry

So come over, just be patient, and don't worry
And don't worry

Try
Try
Try
Try

No, I don't want to battle from beginning to end
I don't want a cycle of recycled revenge
I don't want to follow Death and all of his friends

No, I don't want to battle from beginning to end
I don't want a cycle of recycled revenge
I don't want to follow Death and all of his friends

And, in the end, we lie awake, and we dream of making our escape
And, in the end, we lie awake, and we dream of making our escape

    General CommentI definitely agree that the beginning is about rushing into a relationship... "All winter, we got carried / All way over, on the rooftops, lets get married" These two people are so deeply in love that they're rushing through everything, and finally one of them has realized they need to slow down. "So come over, just be patient, and don't worry." The second part makes me think that rushing through the relationship has caused a battle between them... and now he's realized that it's silly to fight and they should mend their relationship: "No I don't wanna battle from beginning to end, I don't wan't a cycle of recycled revenge, I don't wanna follow death and all of his friends"

    This is such a lovely song, I really love it. Has a lot of meaning to me.
