Coldplay bashing post #?: The shitty lyrics



This has been bugging me for awhile now. Most horrific lyrics do not come from respected bands. But Coldplay's recent songs have some of the worst rhyme scheme bullshit I have heard in a long time. Two cases for your perusal:

1) "Swallowed By The Sea" from the new X&Y CD:

I could write a song a hundred miles long
Well that’s where I belong
and you belong with me and
I could write it down
or spread it all around
Get lost and then get found
or swallowed in the sea

WHAT THE FUCK? How weak and meaningless! The rhymes just make it worse.

2) "Proof" a bside from the recent CD single:

So i waited for you
What wouldnt i do?
And im covered, its true
Im covered in you

And if i ever want proof
I find it in you
Yeah, i honestly do
In you
i find proof
Light, Dark Bright Spark
Light, Dark, and then light

So i waited all day
What wouldnt i say?
And are there things in your way?
Things happen that way

Oh, and if i ever want proof
Then i find it in you
Oh, yeah i honestly do
In you
i find proof
Light, Dark, Bright Spark
Light, Dark, and then light
Light, Light, Light, Light

JESUS GOD, THAT IS SHIT!
