Verse 2: Chris Martin

  • 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

Chorus: Chris Martin

  • 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’d gone, there was never
  • Never an honest word
  • And that was when I ruled the world

Verse 3: Chris Martin

  • 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
  • Aw, who would ever want to be king?
