In the end

Neil Hannon is always right.

For those wanting the Fellini bit…

The Certainty of Chance

A butterfly flies through the forest rain
And turns the wind into a 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 it’s gonna happen
Because I believe in the certainty of chance

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… detached. Detached.”
