Death and All His Friends

Coldplay, Jon Hopkins

About Death and All His Friends

"Death and All His Friends" is a song by British rock band Coldplay. It was written by all members of the band for their fourth album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends. The song begins with Chris Martin singing softly to a piano accompaniment before morphing into an uplifting arrangement featuring drums, chiming guitars, and a choir recorded in an art gallery in Barcelona. A hidden song featured on the album, entitled "The Escapist", shares this track with "Death and All His Friends", bringing the length of the track up to over six minutes. A brief 40 second section of "The Escapist", a sample from 'Light Through the Veins' by Jon Hopkins, is what begins "Life in Technicolor" making the album cyclical. A live version of "Death and All His Friends" was featured on the band's 2009 live album, LeftRightLeftRightLeft.

All winter we got carried away
Over on the rooftops, let's get married
All summer we just hurried
So come over, just be patient, and don't worry
So come over, just be patient, and don't worry

So come over, just be patient, and don't worry
And don't worry

Try
Try
Try
Try

No, I don't want to battle from beginning to end
I don't want a cycle of recycled revenge
I don't want to follow Death and all of his friends

No, I don't want to battle from beginning to end
I don't want a cycle of recycled revenge
I don't want to follow Death and all of his friends

And, in the end, we lie awake, and we dream of making our escape
And, in the end, we lie awake, and we dream of making our escape
