"Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall" as written by Harry Castioni, Alex Christensen, B. Lagonda, - Wycombe, Christopher Martin, Guy Berryman, Jonathan Buckland, William Champion, Brian Eno, Peter Allen and Adrienne Anderson....
I turn the music up, I got my records on
I shut the world outside until the lights come on
Maybe the streets alight, maybe the trees are gone
I feel my heart start beating to my favourite song

And all the kids they dance, all the kids all night
Until Monday morning feels another life
I turn the music up
I'm on a roll this time
And heaven is in sight

I turn the music up, I got my records on
From underneath the rubble sing a rebel song
Don't want to see another generation drop
I'd rather be a comma than a full stop

Maybe I'm in the black, maybe I'm on my knees
Maybe I'm in the gap between the two trapezes
But my heart is beating and my pulses start
Cathedrals in my heart

As we saw oh this light I swear you, emerge blinking into
To tell me it's alright
As we soar walls, every siren is a symphony
And every tear's a waterfall
Is a waterfall
Oh
Is a waterfall
Oh oh oh
Is a is a waterfall
Every tear
Is a waterfall
Oh oh oh

So you can hurt, hurt me bad
But still I'll raise the flag

Oh
It was a wa wa wa wa wa-aterfall
A wa wa wa wa wa-aterfall

Every tear
Every tear
Every teardrop is a waterfall

Every tear
Every tear
Every teardrop is a waterfall

Every tear
Every tear
Every teardrop is a waterfall

    General CommentKinda fun at MTV-EMAs Party Night!!!!! (Missed you, felt you, wish you were here and all the other Pink Floyd songs I love)

    Lady GuyGuy - what a marketing scam that is.

    VERY GOOD to see Cold Play ... and Queen.

    (Too bad Lambert has no falsetto...that last note should have been an octave higher.)

    But talk about your own personal dream cover band!!! And now he has a place where everybody loves that he is ... happy?) I see a long profitable gig in Vegas.

    This Cold Play song that they performed tonight is about the VERY NEAR FUTURE kids. (Like you can see it coming with all the turmoil that is escalating currently yes?) After the "soon to arrive" devastations/tribulations/Teotwawki/etc...(and there's no Obamacare that's going to fix that one).

    But the cool thing is that COLDPLAY has the positive attitude - and what else is cool is that they are looking forward to he reconstruction.

    I just hope they survive as much as I know the tracks (that we have hidden with the spare ipods and electrical generators) down in the shelter will. So we can still listen to their records("ings") after the light go out and the street catches on fire.

    (Here is the explanation of the lyrics. And some of you thought they were to "cutesy". Ya, right.)


    I turn the music up, (headphones up to 11 = deaf but happy)
    Got my record(ing)s on (too many syllables in recordings to fit the beat)
    I shut the (devastated)
    world outside, until the lights come (back)
    on (after the EMP/solar storm/nuke meltdown turns them all off)
    Maybe the streets alight,(asphalt burns, rioters burn, banks burn, everything burns in a melt-down)
    Maybe the trees are gone (no problem...fresh charcoal to BBQ squirrels with!)
    I feel my heart start beating to my favorite song (music is all we will be all we have left to cheer us up)

    And all the kids they dance (nothing else to do at night, no MTV to watch anymore. No advertisers.)
    All the kids all night (no more mommies and daddies to tell us to go to bed now - whoohoo!)
    Until Monday morning feels another life (because the business world has collapsed - Monday is a brand new way of life)
    I turn the music up (ears still ringing from Predator missile blasts)
    I'm on a roll this time (no government left to prevent us from taking over the world with LOVE now!)
    And heaven is in sight (we are going to rebuild Heaven on this planet this time - after it burns down from unrest and intolerance)

    I turn the music up, (aaaaaah,that's better - ambient rules!!!!)
    I got my records on (Petabytes of the music files we saved underground away from the EMPs)
    From underneath the rubble (oops, earthquake or bombing zone)
    sing a rebel song (no government left to stop us warrior/rebels now!!!)
    Don't want to see another generation drop (have to rebuild the Earth correctly this time - there not enough resources left to screw up again like all the other generations before us, so if we blow it this last generation will drop off a cliff)
    I'd rather be a comma, than a full stop (some of us will need first-aid, but yet there will be a lot who just suddenly died)

    Maybe I'm in the black (ashes from the forest fires, GRBs, nuke plant implosions, etc.)
    Maybe I'm on my knees (praying for the Second Coming to get here now that everything is equalized)
    Maybe I'm in the gap between the two trapezes (no more government entitlements left so we're in free-fall and waiting and hoping to land on our feet ... with what we practiced ahead of time)
    But my heart is beating and my pulses start (now we can get excited about rebuilding the Earth)
    Cathedrals in my heart (and we rebuild Heaven on Earth)

    As we saw, oh this light (the return of the rider on the White Horse of the Apocalypse)
    I swear you emerge blinking (its dark underground with the lights off)
    into, (the light)
    to tell me it's alright (redemption is nigh)
    As we soar walls (parkour ... in order to get over the debris fields)
    Every siren is a symphony (it's FUN to be a part in all the emergencies that set us free!!! Sirens will die once the squad car batteries do)
    And every tears a waterfall (we are out of water - so every tear is valuable and precious! Save some tears for the poor in spirit.)

    So you can hurt, hurt me bad (some of us will get wounded fighting off the left-over troopers)
    But still I'll raise the flag (the flag of the warrior/angel millennium)

    It was a wa-wa-wa-wa-waterfall
    A wa-wa-wa-wa-waterfall

    Every tear
    Every tear
    Every teardrop is a waterfall (seriously - store water, its going to be in really short supply and its going to be a while before we get the spigots back on!!!!)

    So that's the meaning - but its upbeat if you are warrior!!!
    You know me ... I am Always.

    (Stick around and I'll share my food storage and save a seat in the cave for you ... yes?)

    Wolffee
