Politik
Coldplay Lyrics


Look at earth from outer space
Everyone must find a place
Give me time and give me space
Give me real don't give me fake
Give me strength reserve control
Give me heart and give me soul
Give me time give us a kiss
Tell me your own politik

And open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes

Give me one, 'cause one is best
In confusion, confidence
Give me peace of mind and trust
Don't forget the rest of us
Give me strength reserve control
Give me heart and give me soul
Wounds that heal and cracks that fix
Tell me all your politik

And open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes

But give me love over, love over, love over this, ah
And give me love over, love over, love over this, ah

"Politik"

Look at earth from outer space
Everyone must find a place
Give me time and give me space
Give me real, don't give me fake
Give me strength, reserve control
Give me heart and give me soul
Give me time, give us a kiss
Tell me your own politik

Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes

Give me one, cause one is best
In confusion, confidence
Give me peace of mind and trust
Don't forget the rest of us

Give me strength, reserve control
Give me heart and give me soul
Wounds that heal and cracks that fix
Tell me your own politik

Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes

And give me love over, love over, love over this, ahhh
And give me love over, love over, love over this, ahhh

I think all the albums are great in their own way. There's no "old Coldplay" or "new Coldplay". It's just that they need to try new sounds to grow as a band.

Parachutes was an amazing debut album, it's what you can listen to on a rainy day and just relax.

A Rush of Blood to the Head is, in the opinion of many, an extremely strong rock album, it's a strong statement and there are very few flaws.

X & Y is either loved or hated. They were thinking big, but some of the songs just kind of fade together. With that said, it does deliver several strong tracks like: Talk, Fix You and Till Kingdom Come.

Viva la Vida, in my opinion, is one of the greatest, most forward thinking albums ever created. After X & Y received extremely mixed reviews, the band went back to the drawing board and decided to create something completely new. No ground was left uncovered and no stone was left unturned. While they tried a bunch of different sounds, it doesn't seem all over the place. All the tracks come together to form a sense of completeness, creating one of the most satisfying albums of all time.

Mylo Xyloto, like X & Y, received extremely mixed reviews. The creative juices of Viva la Vida continued to flow, but they tried to do two completely different things: experiment with a new sound and please the masses. The final result wasn't bad, but lots of the catchy, sometimes electric sounds, could have been better if there were less cliche lyrics. Even though they produced a couple mega-hit-singles, it was not their best work.

Ghost Stories is set to be released in May and is expected to contain sounds similar to AROBTTH.

@Willliam B Well I can understand that. Coldplay’s first 3 albums are among Coldplay’s most resonating music for me.

I think Coldplay’s peak was from like 1998 - 2008 resonating wise, but I think their lyrics did get more creative though I will say.

Initially I wasn’t the biggest fan of Viva and Mylo as well, I just cherished their first 3 masterpiece albums, and thought that anything after X&Y was under par for Coldplay standards, but over time Viva and Mylo did start to grow on me, and I came to appreciate them a lot more than I used to do.

I just wasn’t used to the new sound that Coldplay were now encapsulating, but as I started to diversify I didn’t just focus on the song having a good sound pallet or sounding good sonically anymore, but more so of the lyrics as well and all of the above. Their newer music obviously started to become more mainstream and cater towards a new audience which is what a lot of people didn’t like and stopped listening to Coldplay, but I think that was also just part of Coldplay’s evolution as well which a lot of people don’t realise. Chris said that he never wanted any of their albums to sound the same, so I do think they definitely experimented with a lot of different sounds and just tried to make art in all shapes and forms.

Viva is Coldplay’s most monumental album imo, and is lyrically their best, but instrumentally it goes to AROBTTH for me. Point is, their are so many variables and aspects with every little thing
that Coldplay never put all their eggs in one basket. They were never one size fits all, they just always kept true to themselves, but of course they capitalised on the success of their more mainstream sounding music, but it’s how they also remained relevant after all this time as well.

Everyday Life was a breath of fresh air after having Ghost Stories & AHFOD back to back though. Definitely my favourite album since Viva. That album went back to the essence of the old Coldplay and definitely had that old Coldplay magic in some of the songs.

However their latest album Music of the Spheres is easily my least favourite Coldplay album that left me quite dissatisfied and disappointed I have to say, so I hope that their next album will be a huge rebound with the best of all their magic from all their best albums, as I believe that Coldplay are only doing 1 more album in 2025 and then will just be touring.

@Music Lover fair

Music Lover

@J p b Dude Ah okay then I know what you mean now. Yeah view wise you are right, Politik has more than Twisted Logic, and so is probably more well known even outside of YouTube as it was track 1 off AROBTTH, unlike Twisted Logic, which was the 12th track of X&Y. So having said, recognition wise, Twisted Logic is more underrated, but as you said, objectively Politik is the best, and imo the best piece of music ever created. Only song that I would currently give a 10/10. I think there’s a reason that it’s 5.0 stars on letssingit.

J p b Dude

@Music Lover I agree poltik is clear but that’s more well known. Twisted Logic deserves what say… Orphans got at least.

Imagine it’s 2002 and you just bought this album after listening to Parachutes, and the first thing you hear is this.
