"O" as written by Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland and William Champion....
A flock of birds
Hovering above
Just a flock of birds
That's how you think of love

And I always
Look up to the sky
Pray before the dawn
'Cause they fly always
Sometimes they arrive
Sometimes they are gone
They fly on

A flock of birds
Hovering above
Into smoke I'm turned
And rise following them up

Still I always
Look up to the sky
Pray before the dawn
'Cause they fly away
One minute they arrive,
Next you know they're gone
They fly on
Fly on

So fly on
Ride through
Maybe one day I'll fly next to you

They fly on
Ride through
Maybe one day I come fly with you
Fly on
Fly on
Fly on

    My InterpretationI read it a bit different. The aforementioned fits with general theme of album BUT i see the integration of his children in "O" signifying a more broad interpretation of loss that extends to letting the kids go especially with "one minute they arrive" (born) "next you know they're gone" (leaving home) "They fly on" (off to their own lives). I have had many a broken relationship and I don't feel what the majority feel; I feel the inevitable loss of joy of having beautiful new creations for such a short while only to let them Fly On….maybe it might have something to do with having a 21 and 17 year old. However you wish, this is one of my favs! Peace
