"The Certainty Of Chance" as written by Neil Hannon and Joby Vincent Talbot....
A butterfly flies through the forest rain
And turns the wind to the hurricane
I know that it will happen
'Cause I believe in the certainty of chance

A schoolboy yawns, sits back and hits return
While round the world computers crash and burn
I know that it will happen
'Cause I believe in the certainty of chance

And I believe
I can see it all so clearly now

You must go and I must set you free
'Cause only that will bring you back to me
I know that it will happen
I'm sure that it must happen
Oh I know that it's gonna happen
Because I believe in the certainty of chance

    General Commentfollowing lyrics which are at the very end of the song:

    ...sometimes at night the darkness and silence weighs on me. peace frightens me. perhaps i fear it most of all. i feel it's only a facade, hiding the face of hell. i think of what's in store for my children tomorrow; "the world will be wonderful", they say; but from whose viewpoint? we need to live in a state of suspended animation, like a work of art; in a state of enchantment
