"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 CommentIt was September when i proposed to my girlfriend of 5 1/2 years, all winter we were excited, "over rooftops". Spring turned to summer as "we just hurried"... life began to get very stressful for her planning a wedding and dealing with other serious personal issues in her life. I would go over to her house and tell her to "just be patient and dont worry" things will work themselves out. Feeling overwhelmed I didnt know how to help the situation.

    The tempo changed in our lives as we both started to lash out at one another more frequently blaming eachother for rediculous things, which literally brought us into a "cycle of recycled revenge". Both coming from broken families we always felt that we would only get married once in our lives... and thus the metaphor for divorce that we didnt want to follow... "death and all his frineds" (this line has many other meanings to me as well). My fiance and true love left the situation and her lifes stresses, and ran away to a city an hour away.

    Fast-forward one month to present time. Our families and us are still trying to make sence of it, picking up the pieces. I have for the first time in 26 years felt true pain and sadness. We both still love eachother so much and talk when we feel we are strong enough to do so.

    Tempo change "and in the end We lie awake, and we dream of making our escape"... I know that no matter what our future holds i will always lie awake and dream of our escape together ..... im know she is doing the same.

    I miss her ... this song is amazing ... thanks Chris.
