Here’s some second single business from British stadium rockers Coldplay, from their album Mylo Xyloto which is released October 24th. I was quite enjoying the lush production and swirling strings, and wasn’t at all mad at the typically catchy Chris Martin chorus. And then from my speakers comes the kind of meaninglessly “poetical” non sequitur of a couplet that makes me want to torture cute things.
Life goes on, it gets so heavy/ The wheel breaks the butterfly
