Welcome to the ULC Minister's Network

For anyone that studied the Bible, regardless of Beleif...

  • I am seeking peoples opinions from 2 songs from the band Coldplay.......yeah sounds hokey I know, but the Album from these two songs, and it's contents show controversy to it's interpretation that the lyrics are about A. Napolean and B. The Revolutionary war. The band won't comment on it's meaning, but has been quoted to say " we are the greatest Plaguerists of our time" . People took that as they took from other bands, I thinks it's Biblical content.......Lead Singer C.Martin says he beleives in something, but says he belongs to no particular Religion, though he was raised strictly in a Catholic Church in England........Whoever takes the time to read this, as I said regardless of beleif, just knowledge of Biblical content, would you agree with popular beleif, or Biblical?

    I used to rule the world                                                          to me this sounds more like John the Baptist, .......
    Seas would rise when I gave the word
    Now in the morning I sweep alone
    Sweep the streets I used to own

    I used to roll the dice
    Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
    Listen as the crowd would sing:
    "Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

    One minute I held the key
    Next the walls were closed on me
    And I discovered that my castles stand
    Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

    I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
    Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
    Be my mirror my sword and shield
    My missionaries in a foreign field
    For some reason I can't explain
    Once you go there was never, never an honest word
    That was when I ruled the world

    It was the wicked and wild wind
    Blew down the doors to let me in
    Shattered windows and the sound of drums
    People couldn't believe what I'd become

    Revolutionaries wait
    For my head on a silver plate
    Just a puppet on a lonely string
    Oh who would ever want to be king?

    second Song.......Violet Hill

    Was a long and dark december, from the rooftops I remember there was snow....white snow( leave everything behind go to the mountains)

    Clearly I remember, from the windows they were watching while we froze, down below( non beleivers, watched from their houses)

    When the futures architectured,by a carnival of idiots on show, u better lie low, ( future where democracy and Religion are corrupt)

    if you love me won't you let me know


    Was a long and dark december, when the banks became catherdrals, and the fog, became God ( Nt test speaks of end of days in winter)

    Priests clutched onto Bibles hollowed out to fill their rifles, and the Cross was held aloft ( Heirarchy preaching but not living, fully in fear)

    bury me in armor when I'm dead and hit the ground, My nerves are poles the unfroze( if he doesn't make it to the moutnatin, proper burial)

    If you love me won't you let me know( hoping he'll be saved?)

    I don't want to be the soldier, of the captain of some sinnking ship would stow, far below( asking not to fall pray to false prophets claiming they are HIM)


    if you love me, why'd you let me go

    I took my love to Violet Hill, where she stood in the snow, all the while she was silent still, If you love me, won't you let me know( waiting in silence, his love in faith awaiting his fate)


    ............sounds to me Like NT Matthew, ( Luke and John as well, and their accounts of what to expect at the end of days.....interpretation shown in Matthew 24
