From the forthcoming "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends," due June 17, 2008, "Violet Hill" brings some spiky new flashes to Coldplay's sound, but still comfortably fits with the band's back catalog.
"...Even when Coldplay tries to rock out, the song ends up sounding like a ballad..."

Coldplay - Violet Hill

Was a long and dark December
From the rooftops I remember
There was snow
White snow
Clearly I remember
From the windows they were watching
While we froze
Down below
When the future's architectured
By a carnival of idiots on show
You'd better lie low
If you love me
Won't you let me know?

Was a long and dark December
When the banks became cathedrals
And the fog
Became God
Priests clutched onto bibles
Hollowed out to fit their rifles
And the cross was held aloft
Bury me in honor
When I'm dead and hit the ground
A love back home unfolds
If you love me
Won't you let me know?

I don't want to be a soldier
Whith the captain of some sinking ship
Would stow, far below
So if you love me
Why'd you let me go?

I took my love down to Violet Hill
There we sat in snow
All that time she was silent still
So if you love me
Won't you let me know?
If you love me,
Won't you let me know?
