Coldplay – Prospekt’s March/Poppyfields Song Lyrics

About Coldplay: Coldplay are a British Alternative Rock band formed in 1996 by lead vocalist Chris Martin and lead guitarist Jonny Buckland at University College London. After they formed Pectoralz, Guy Berryman joined the group as a bassist and they changed their name to Starfish.Will Champion joined as a drummer, backing vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist, completing the line-up. Manager Phil Harvey is often considered an unofficial fifth member. The band renamed themselves “Coldplay” in 1998, before recording and releasing three EPs; Safety in 1998, Brothers & Sisters as a single in 1999 and The Blue Room in the same year. The latter was their first release on a major label, after signing to Parlophone.

Smoke is rising from the houses
People Burying their dead
I ask somebody what the time is
But time doesn’t matter to them yet

People talking without speaking
Trying to take what they can get
I ask you if you remember
Propekt, how could I forget?

Here it comes
Don’t you wish that life could be as simple,
As fish swimming round in a barrel.
When you’ve got the gun?

Oh and I’ll run
Here it comes
We’re just two little figures in a soup bowl
Trying to get the anaconda control
When I wasn’t one

Here I lie
On my own in a separate sky
Here I lie
On my own in a separate sky
I don’t want to die
On my own, here, tonight
Here I lie
On my own in a separate sky
