crys Coldplay is starting to DRIVE ME CRAZY!!!

Ok, when I first went out and bought X&Y (the first week I think) I thought to myself "Wow this is a great CD, this is a good band!" Now I find myself yelling "WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT MEAN!! AHHHHH!!". Here is an example...

Here is a snipet of White Shadows...

"When I was a young boy, I tried to listen, and I want to feel like that, little white shadows blink and miss them, If you ever feel like something's missin', Things you never understand, Little white shadows sparkle and glisten, Part of a system, a plan".

...

...

...What the hell!?

That makes no sense whatsoever, it doesn't even follow a logical pattern...

...oh wait...there's more...

All this noise I'm waking up
All this space I'm taking up
All this sound is breaking up

Ohhhh...

Maybe you'll get what you wanted
Maybe you'll stumble upon it
Everything you ever wanted
In a permanent state

Maybe you know when you've see it
Maybe if you say it you'll mean it
And when you find it you'll keep it
In a permanent state
A permanent state

...Am I missing something? How about this...

Birds go flying at the speed of sound, to show you how it all began....


Everytime I hear Coldplay now I just want to tear out my hair, especially with his voice...it's so high...and they sounded like crap at the grammys...anyone else having the same frustration? I don't really hate Coldplay, I actually love a lot of their music, they are just DRIVING ME CRAZY

I don't even think Coldplay can explain their own lyrics

Well, perhaps you should consider skipping White Shadows next time you put X&Y on. Maybe then you wouldn't have the desire to tear out your hair.

I really like the music, just not the lyrics. It's the same with all of their songs though, not just white shadows.

I still haven't warmed up to Coldplay that much and it's weird cos I love Rush Of Blood almost in it's entirety! But Parachutes kinda bores me. As for X&Y... I do love the demo version of Talk very much but I don't really like the album version or the other big hit, Fix You too much. Then again, I love Gravity and Sleeping Sun! It's like a love-hate thing.

Chris Martin was shooting for 'universal' and somehow overcalculated, putting his dribble into the realm of 'retarded'.

Why do you have to know what it means?

Exactly! There are many songs I just listen to because I like the music. This is especially true if it's in a totally different language that I don't know.

For example... Björk's Isobel from her album Post, despite being in English has some really inscrutable lyrics! I still love that song!
