Coldplay in Madrid concert October 26, 2011

From today. I wonder if Coldplay will continue to be on a spiritual search.

Part one of Madrid Concert

Look at their latest song and the lyrics:

They got one eye on what you knew

And one eye on what you do
So be careful who it is you’re talking to

They got one eye on what you knew 
And one eye on what you do
So be careful what it is you’re trying to do

And be careful when you’re walking in the view 
Just be careful when you’re walking in the view!

Ooh-oooh-oooh
Ooh-oooh-oooh-ooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you!

Ooh-oooh-oooh
Ooh-oooh-oooh-ooh
Got one eye on the road and one on

They got one eye on what you knew 
And one eye on what you do
So be careful ’cause nothing they say is true

But they don’t believe a word
It’s just us against the world
And we just gotta turn up to be heard

Hear those crocodiles ticking ’round the world
Hear those crocodiles ticking (they go) ticking ’round the world

Ooh-oooh-oooh
Ooh-oooh-oooh-ooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you! 
Ooh-oooh-oooh
Ooh-oooh-oooh-ooh
Got one eye on the road.

She can’t hear them climbing the stairs
I got my right side fighting
While my left eye’s on the chairs

Ooh-oooh-oooh
Ooh-oooh-oooh-ooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you!

Ooh-oooh-oooh
Ooh-oooh-oooh-ooh
Got one eye on the road and one on you

___________________________________

Here are the main points of the song.

1. Heaven is watching us constantly. (They got one eye on what you knew,And one eye on what you do)

2. We should be careful because what we do does matter to God. (And be careful when you’re walking in the view, Just be careful when you’re walking in the view!)

3. There are dangers in this world that you must avoid because they will eat you up.(Hear those crocodiles ticking ’round the world, Hear those crocodiles ticking (they go) ticking ’round the world )

4.Chris Martin’s plan is to keep one eye on the road ahead and one on the wife that he loves. (Got one eye on the road and one on you!)

These interpretations are based on the assumption that Chris is building on the theme of his last cd. We will have to wait and see what the rest of the cd sounds like. Feel free to share with me your thoughts.
