Chris Martin (from The Sun newspaper May 13, 2008): "It's our attempt at a Smiths song. It's about witch drownings. I was interested about that period in London where people were supposedly drowned for being a witch. And that's where that song came from. About being accused of something you didn't do."

Coldplay recorded this song in a Barcelona church, which provided the distinctive echo. For more info go to http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=11581

Lyrics

At night they would go walking 'till the breaking of the day
The morning is for sleeping
Through the dark streets, they go searching, to see God in their own way
Save the nighttime for your weeping

Coldplay - Cemeteries of London Lyrics
