Viva La Vida by Coldplay – A Ghetto Girl’s Interpretation & Why

Viva-La-Vida_picturisedViva La Vida by Coldplay

Interesting how minds can process information differently. I am a Coldplay fan who purchases as opposed to downloads their music. In other words, Coldplay gets my hard-earned cash. Viva La Vida is an important song to me because of its Christian and historical references.  I am more likely to play Viva la Vida on Sunday instead of traditional gospel. I’m “weird” like that. From the very first time I heard it, I processed this song as a lesson in humility. How one can be at the top of their “game” in whatever capacity they believe, then fall back on their knees. Gone is all the glory.

Anyone religious or spiritual could relate to the lyrics even if you are not a fan of the alternative rock genre. Anyone who has tasted abundance or wealth, power, adoration, has been or is, highly favored, worshiped, could draw people to them or into action for them for whatever reason.

Path-to-Enlightenment

This could be any of us. I’ve witnessed activists, politicians, reverends and teachers misuse their “power”. Someone with one bag of rice more than his/her neighbor can be adored, worshiped or considered favored and misuse that blessing. Lets not just think of kings, queens, Gods or presidents. Any of us means all of us. Are you following me?

christ_our_life_wide

Viva La Vida either humbles me or encourages that I be more grateful for my blessings. I remember where I came from and how much work I’ve put into distancing myself from that place. I remember how many times I’ve fallen back on my knees, stood up and said to myself, “Thank God for the humble beginnings I was birthed into! Because of it, I can survive dirt in my mouth when just a few months or years ago, it was fine wine and great eats to no end!” Something as common as being unemployed makes me feel like, “I have fallen back on my knees.”  Yet, my spiritual state is not downcast. Instead I increase whatever time I have, (in between job hunting) to help others. Thank God I do not value my life based on monetary pillars of sand, but on faith. “This too shall pass”. Having it good or doing “bad” isn’t a monetary thing. It’s a spiritual thing both requiring humility.

“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”

Viva La Vida is a testimony of how we should ALWAYS be humble, kind to others less fortunate, to use our influence for good and not evil or greed. Viva La Vida says to me, “Keep in mind, what goes up will come down”. If you misused the blessings when you had it, you will fall harder. “St. Peter won’t call my name”.  That’s what I believed this song was all about.

“I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word

Now in the morning, I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own”

Guess what I learned a few days ago? Viva la Vida is an Anti-Christ song! It’s about the masses realizing Jesus Christ is nothing more than a fabrication and so they abandon the doctrine of Christianity! Christ now “sweeps the streets he once owned”.

I wonder if anyone else positively mistook the lyrics instead of the atheist stand Coldplay intended? You tell me.

Here are the Lyrics & Music:

OR

in plain words:

VIDA LA VIVA

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning, I sleep 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 are 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 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 want to be king?

[Chorus]
I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Calvary choirs are 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 rule this world
But that was when I ruled the world

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

[Chorus]

Incredible. My interpretation was a complete opposite of what Coldplay was trying to convey. What is your interpretation? Can there be more than one based on your beliefs?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Viva la Vida – What does it all mean?

Vida La Viva by Coldplay – Is the meaning a mystery or are you not listening?

Lenny Says

There has been much speculation recently on the “hidden” meaning in the lyrics of Coldplay’s hit new song, Viva La Vida. Penned by Chris Martin, lead singer, pianist and husband to actress Gwyneth Paltrow, the song has become Coldplay’s biggest hit.

Although some people listen to a song without actually thinking or caring about what the lyrics mean, others like myself, tend to appreciate good lyrics as one does good poetry, and we also wonder what the artist means by his words. I tend to believe that all songwriters write with great meaning, often hidden, which makes music all the more interesting. According to Wikipedia, the title Viva la Vida translates from Spanish into “long live life.”

When asked by Q magazine about what he meant by the line “I know Saint Peter won’t call my name” Chris Martin replied: “It’s about… You’re not on the list. I was a naughty…

New York City Church Hate Message to the LGBT Community of Harlem

Transgender Bisexual Political Nerd

The Anti Violence Project  and other community groups is holding a Community Safety Afternoon TODAY, March 26th 2014 from 3-5pm around the vicinity of ATLAH World Missionary Church. The ATLAH World Missionary Church in Harlem located 36 W. 123rd Street has recently posted a sign that reads “Jesus Would Stone Homos Matthew 5:17-19 Leviticus 20:13 Deuteronomy 17:5-7 John 8:1-11 stoning is still the law.” 

We do not wish to disenfranchise any groups’ right to free speech, they are deeply concerned that speech like this can create a hostile environment for LGBTQ individuals within the surrounding neighborhood. The LGBT members of the community also deserve they are safe walking thru the streets of their neighborhood.

Luz’s Daughter Cares launches “Reward for Indictment” Fund for Islan Nettles unsolved homicide case

1546369_10202228835615204_949673695_n

Luz’s Daughter Cares seeks to pursue justice for the beating death of beloved Transgender woman Islan Nettles by raising reward money for information leading to the arrest and indictment of her killer.

Nearly 7 months after Islan’s gruesome death, no one has been arrested and the case has gone cold. To that end, NYPD has failed to initiate their Crimestoppers Program that offers monetary awards for anonymous information that could help solve the case.

We seek to initiate this process because Islan Nettles life mattered. Trans Lives Matter.

CBS 2 Exclusive: Video Shows East Harlem Blast In Progress

CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An exclusive video obtained by CBS 2 showed the deadly blast that took down two buildings in East Harlem as it happened.

As CBS 2’s Kathryn Brown reported, the video was shot by a security camera mounted on a building across the street from the scene at Park Avenue off 116th Street.

First, video from a camera pointing north on Park Avenue shows windows shattering seemingly out of nowhere, and debris begins raining down onto the sidewalk.

Then, on the opposite side of the street, a cloud of thick, black smoke begins to envelop everything as the buildings explode.

A man walking across the street is nearly knocked off his feet by the blast. He ducks, tries to cover his head, and is then pushed back in a state of apparent disorientation.

The man was caught up…

What “really” happened to MA-Flight MH370? 9 crazy conspiracy theories

missing_plane_malaysia_airline_flight_370_search_transponder-369677

While investigators are stumped over the fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, the lack of evidence as to what happened hasn’t stopped wild – and I mean WILD – speculation as to the fate of the missing jet and its 239 passengers and crew members.

It’s not unusual for mysterious or dramatic aviation accidents to catch the imaginations of the conspiratorially inclined – the Korean Air Lines Flight 007, Pan Am Flight 103, and TWA Flight 800 tragedies spurred all kinds of claims of conspiracy, and last week’s apparent tragedy in the Gulf of Thailand is no different.

Conspiracy theorists took to social media this week to contribute their own ideas as to why Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared.
