I totally get your point, and I agree mostly. Don't get me wrong I think its a great song. It just seems like there might be something missing that would make it an amazing song. I really like the synths and the overall beat and I love the intro (it reminds me of "Where the Streets Have No Name" which is one of my favorite songs of all time). I just think it has two small flaws that keep it from being amazing:
1. The lack of verses almost make it sound like some kind of remix with similar vocals repeated (not that that's a bad thing, its just I'm not really into remixes).
2. This is more of me wanting something than a flaw in the song, but I would've like a huge heavy guitar riff that "knocks you out" rather than the repetitive synths. The perfect time for this riff would have been right after "Far from the world of you and I, where oceans bleed into the sky". The song builds up perfectly to this point and a huge riff would have blown me away.
But, other than these two things, I like the song.
