Haha "A simple plot but I know one day, good things are coming our way" completely got me! Therefore the second part just makes my day :cool:

Yes please Car Kids is like a freaking disease that's over ridden the forum :angry:

Anyway; 2nd half hands down. I feel like the 2nd half is about starting over and letting go while delivering the message in a nice upbeat rhythm :uhoh:

I love the second half :love:

It's a great ending to the album. Ties it all together.

I prefer second part. It's simple, but have something with "old" power.

Both halves. The two opposite sounds is what makes this song so unique.

Second! :heart:
This song makes me little bit sad because I remember the end of Live 2012 in cinema.
But I really like Up with the birds and I don't understand why it doesn't deserve more attention than Up in flames or Us against the world. ;)

This could have been so great live. Imagine if they had left for a while after ETIAW and then Chris came back on and played the first half solo on the piano (maybe back on the C-Stage). Then the other band members would come back on for the second half of the song with them all standing together with just acoustic guitars kind of like how they played Don Quixote on the Viva tour. Perfect way to end a concert.

the first half really creeps me out for some reason :anxious:, so i always skip it. the second part though is beautiful. best part of the album along with the whole of Major Minus.

I know I'm like a year and a half late on this thread... but I HAVE to listen to this song every time I fly. After Mylo Xyloto came out and the tour started, I flew a few times to see their concerts... so I associate the lyrics "float all over the world just to see her again" with me flying to see Coldplay <3

Exactly. The album wouldn't be the same without this song. The lyrics, the tonal shift midway, the guitars... Perfection.

Definitely the second, the last 3 (4 if you split up DLIBYH) songs are honestly some of the best songs they've ever made

I enjoyed the second half more. The only part of the first half that I didn't like was the synth.
