(Chorus): I'm flying away now I wanna be free I'm tired of troubles Always following me With darkness all around me Somehow freedom has found me I'm gonna keep flying Fly until I'm free
Well, I heard of a place That's not too far away Where if you fee like you're nothing You start feeling like something I need to go there right away 'Cause I'm about to suffocate No time for long goodbyes Only time to spread my wings and fly
I feel the wind in my face I got a smile that can't erase I'm not even feeling tired I'm gonna soar a little higher And the higher that I go The more I'm filled with hope I can make through stormy weather I never ever felt any better
Oh, I'm gonna fly Fly through the night It's gonna be alright I'm gonna fly away from the darkness That kept me from being free

There aren't many songs with a scientist as the main character, but Coldplay's "The Scientist" is one of their biggest hits. The guy in the song is brilliant, but despondent because he's lost his girl after neglecting her for his work.
