  1. coldplay'in şahsımca söz ve ritim açısından en güzel şarkısı olan viva la vida, violet hill parçalarının başını oluşturur. albümde de zaten bu iki parça arka arkaya dizilmişlerdir. melodisini duyar duymaz içinizde bir umut yeşerir, düşmüş bir kral olsanız bile. bu tarz müziğin ilgilileri baroque pop veya chamber pop tarzını araştırabilirler.

    i used to rule the world
    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
    (ohhh)

    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?

    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
    i know saint peter will call my name
    never an honest word
    but that was when i ruled the world
    (ohhhhh ohhh ohhh)

    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
    i know saint peter will call my name
    never an honest word
    but that was when i ruled the world
    (oooooh oooooh oooooh )
