"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Snow Patrol - Empress

You’re angry but you don’t know how to be that yet
It seems too much went wrong and all at once
Resistance seems impossible from down this low
and surely no one else can feel like this

But on the streets you can see them gathering
and in your heart you know they feel like you do

Sound and pulse and volume;
hands just reaching out for hands
This is almost overload — I said almost overload
Friends and foes and princes are all just human in the end
This is so damn simple, yeah; it’s so damn simple

So standing in the steady throng of restless hope
you don’t feel like an outcast anymore
and something deep inside of you has wakened up
and you know that nothing’s gonna be the same again

And on the streets you can see for what seems miles
because in your heart you know they feel like you do

Sound and pulse and volume;
hands just reaching out for hands
This is almost overload — I said almost overload
Friends and foes and princes are all just human in the end
This is so damn simple, yeah; it’s so damn simple

Your mind won’t be still; it may not again
You don’t think it will; but it will, it will

Sound and pulse and volume;
hands just reaching out for hands
This is so damn simple, yeah; it’s so damn simple
This is so damn simple, yeah; this is so damn simple
This is so damn simple, yeah; this is so damn simple
