Finality In Hope

Lyrics to Finality In Hope by The Fall Of Science

Will, will you ever, ever be, anything you claimed to be

If you’ve never felt love, how do you write about it?
If you’ve never been there, how can you tell the story?
I’ve crossed the water, I’ve sailed the ocean
I have to believe we are enduring

When you look into my eyes and see they are corroding,
I’m dying inside through this thought of confusion.

These words are so damn solid
Stand by your actions, go raise your armies
And now I see it clear, now I hold so dear
Only friends and brothers, for they are eternal

When you look into my eyes and see they are corroding,
I’m dying inside through this thought of confusion.
When you look into my heart and see that it’s still breaking
I’m dying inside through this thought of confusion.

You’ve really taken the best of my life, you’ve really taken the best of my life
You can’t ever seem to bring me down 
You’ve really taken the best of my life, you’ve really taken the best of my life
You can’t ever seem to bring me down.

There’s finality in hope, if you cling on to it
But I won’t
There’s beauty in love, if you can take it
But I don’t

You’ve really taken the best of my life, you’ve really taken the best of my life
You can’t ever seem to bring me down 
You’ve really taken the best of my life, you’ve really taken the best of my life
You can’t ever seem to bring me down.

If you need faith to find meaning in life then I pity, I pity you

You’ve really taken the best of my life, you’ve really taken the best of my life
You can’t ever seem to bring me down.

Soar

In my dreams i’m soaring
Coasting, flying, rising high above
The bleak towers and turrets of our world
If this is my deepest desire

Then what does that say about
The life that i’m living
If all I crave is solitude and
An escape, to travel anywhere

Anyplace but here
The updraft whips around my
Tattered clothes, draped loosely
Over this broken body

Yet for the life of me
I can’t think of anywhere else i’d
Rather be and this dream has
Followed me for as long as I’ve known

Windwalking, racing across
Rooftops, riding clouds until
I fall flat on my face
A mouthful of dirt and grit

Spit it out and ascend
Rise again, remain ethereal
Airborne and weightless
So sick of waiting

They say that you can
Run from your problems
But can’t run from yourself, well
I’ve never heard any cautionary talk

Of trials, tribulations, ordeals or
Unpleasantness chasing and following
As you drift along on a draft
Or grip on to a gust

Latest Football Transfer News

Latest transfer news!!
Bale to definitely leave Spurs.
In a news conference today Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid head honcho, unequivocally confirmed the imminent arrival of Gareth Bale. Ahead of his side’s friendly with Levante, Ancelotti shocked journalists who had been asking like, totally unrelated questions by excitedly shouting “yes, i am completely aware of who Bale is, now can we please get back to the matter at hand”. Meanwhile David Pleat exclusively told any newspaper who would listen that “Bale should stay at Spurs, he’s too young to move”, whilst (delete where applicable) Kia Joorabchian/Dave Whelan/Alan Shearer/Jamie Redknapp/anyone else who has too much time on their hands or likes to stir the pot tweeted “Bale iz gud enuff fur Rail Madreed”.
To further compound this totally legitimate new story, reports in Spain suggest that Christian Bale (who might probably be related somewhere down the line, as he was born in Wales too) has been sighted on a beach near Barcelona. Whether he was scouting out a possible alternative for his friend/relative/whatever would be completely groundless conjecture…so we’re going to say that he definitely was, and that Christian may also now be Gareth’s agent. In recent weeks Gareth Bale has been seen visiting the Tottenham branch of restaurant chain Nando’s (which must be like Spanish or Mexican or summat), and when he spotted our cameras he held the menu up close to his face, clearly brushing up on the lingo ahead of his imminent departure.
