    The intro reminds me of Clocks, which I'm guessing is the whole point.

    Sounds good.

    The beginning of the song does resemble Clocks a little too much. But that's their style of music, so it's expected. I love the chorus of the song! :wub:

    "Speed of Sound" by Coldplay

    how long before I get in
    before it starts, before I begin
    how long before you decide
    before I know what it feels like
    where to?
    Where do I go?
    if you've never tried then you'll never know
    how long do I have to climb
    up on the side of this mountain of mine

    look up, I look up at night
    planets are moving at the speed of light
    climb up, up in the trees
    every chance that you get
    is a chance you seize
    how long am I gonna can stand
    with my head stuck under the sand
    I start before I can stop
    before I see things the right way up

    all that noise, all that sound
    all those places i have found
    and birds go flying at the speed of sound
    to show how it all began
    birds came flying from the underground
    if you could see it then you'd understand

    ideas that you'll never find
    or the inventors could never design
    the buildings that you put up
    Japan and China... all lit up
    the sign that I couldn't read
    or the light that I couldn't see
    some things you have to believe
    but others are puzzles, puzzling me

    all that noise, all that sound
    all those places i have found
    and birds go flying at the speed of sound
    to show how it all began
    birds came flying from the underground
    if you could see it then you'd understand

    all those signs I knew what they meant
    something you can't invent
    Some get made, and some get sent
    ooh
    words go flying at the speed of sound
    to show how it all began
    birds came flying from the underground
    if you could see it then you'd understand
    oh, when you see it then you'll understand

    Edit: Sorry about the long post. :(

    Wow, it's good.

    But it sounds too much like a 'recycled' song. That will bring criticism.

    Speed of Sound obviously sounds a lot like clocks, but IMO, what makes it so good is the way they are able to even out the use of both piano and guitar. Most of their songs are either one or the the other, with a few exceptions (i.e. the scientist, politik). I hear What If is gonna be pretty good too.
