Based on the new live version just posted in the Multimedia section. I'm thinking what I have down is pretty close; let me know what you think:

Scared of losing all the time
You wrote it in a letter
He was a friend of mine
He heard you could see your future
Inside a glass of water
The ripples and the rhymes
And he asked:
“Will I see heaven in mine?”

That is just the way it was
Nothing could be better
And nothing ever was
And they say you can see your future
Inside a glass of water
The ripples and the rhymes
But will I see heaven in mine?

Oh-oh-oh-oh-I
Son, don’t ask
Neither how full nor empty
Is your glass
Cling to the mast
Spend your whole life living
In the past
Going nowhere fast

So you wrote it on the wall
The hollowest of halos
Is no halo at all
And television’s selling
Plastic figurines of leaders
Sayin’ nothing at all
And we chime:
“Stars in heaven align”

Oh-oh-oh-oh-I
Son, don’t ask
Neither how full nor empty
Is your glass
Cling to the mast
Spend your whole life living
In the past
Going nowhere fast

And what we drinking when we’re done?
Just glasses of water

Heres the lyrics that were posted on my coldplay dot com.

Scared of losing all the time
He wrote it in a letter
He was a friend of mine
He heard you could see your future
Inside a glass of water
The ripples and the rhymes
He asked ‘Will I see heaven in mine?’

That is just the way it was
Nothing could be better
And nothing ever was
And they say you could see a future,
Inside a glass of water
With ripples and the rhymes
But Will I see heaven in mine?
Oh Oh Oh

Ah Son, don’t ask,
Neither how full nor empty is your glass
Cling to the mast
Spend your whole life living in the past
Going nowhere fast

So he wrote it on the wall
The hollowest of halos
Is no halo at all
And television’s said and past
In figurines and leaders
saying nothing at all
And he chimed stars in heaven aligned
Oh Oh Oh

Ah Son, don’t ask,
Neither how full nor empty is your glass
Cling to the mast
Spend your whole life living in the past
Going nowhere fast

[instrumental]

What are we drinking when we’re done?
Just glasses of water

This song is promising, the melody is wicked, and the lyrics are great, as usual, signed Coldplay.

However involving heaven and televisions selling plastic figures in the same song is a bit, uhm, can't find the word...:lol:

This reminds me of the unreleased Version of Talk "..going nowhere much to fast"
