Coldplay - "Viva la Vida"

I use to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word.
Now in the morning I sleep alone.
Sweep the streets I use to own.

I use to roll the dice,
Feel the fear in my enemies' eyes
Now listen as the crowd would say:
"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.

Chorus:
I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Calvary choirs a 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
But that was when I ruled the world.
(Ohhh)

It was a 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 wanna be king?

Chorus:
I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Calvary choirs a singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason, I can't explain,
I know Saint Peter won't call my name.
Never an honest word,
And that was when I ruled the world.
(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)

Hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Calvary choirs a singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason, I can't explain,
I know Saint Peter will call my name.
Never an honest word,
But that was when I ruled the world.

I typed this up almost without having to look at the lyrics. XD I'm a hardcore fan.
