From this hilltop the city is a sea of fairylights, with a distant lullaby of soothing sounds set to lull even the most restless soul to sleep. For all the calamity seen here, there is calmness. Pockets of hope and pieces of sanctuary, strewn across a velvety backdrop, twinkling up like diamond facets, and like shining sequins, like smiles of delight when caught just in the right light. The right light makes all the difference, shifting monochrome to technicolour, and mournful tones to joyful songs, depending entirely on which direction the looker looks in. Which lyrics they wish to hear.
