Earthling is Coldplay's best song since arabesque 

That’s a pretty strong statement considering Coloratura happened since Arabesque. Do you like the Chris vocals or the “alien” ones? (Though the Chris one that was just uploaded sounds like AI, there was another uploaded a bit ago that sounds better)

Wow, Astronaut is magnificent, what a shame they did not keep it. 

No disrespect to Jin, but he made it sound like a big pop song which, yeah, makes sense. But the Coldplay version has this raw, intimate feeling and is probably the most sweet and romantic I've heard Chris since probably Strawberry Swing. I'm sure Max Martin would've knocked all the emotion out of it had they decided to use it on MOTS, but this demo is really nice to have.

Is that ambient version real? Sounds pretty good too, even if it isn't

If the uploader is here, I'd like to thank them for that lossless rip of the acoustic Lovers in Japan. I had lost the file a couple of months ago. Many thanks!

I have to say regarding the last set of leaks, that I was very happy to see snippets of a new version of Idiot. It was a complete surprise that they've been working on new versions of Rush of Blood. Maybe they couldn't carry out their plans for the 20th anniversary, but who knows if they might pick them up for the 25th. Let's hope so!

I reckon they'll release a B-side/unreleased compilation alongside their "final" album. I remember Chris mentioned they'll do this eventually.

Okay throwing my hat in here.... I think Earthling has Coldplay's best lyrics SINCE Arabesque. Don't get me wrong I love Coloratura's lyrics and some other random parts on MOTS but the lyrics are honestly gorgeous. It sounds like a lullaby or even a children's book but in a more serious and beautiful way. The "does it ever get easy? Do you die?" is so damn relatable. 

I was wondering if Earthling got reworked into Angel Song... could anyone from the Seattle meet up confirm or deny?

This is pure speculation on my part, but it feels like it could be a good musical song to me. I can see the lyrics being part of a storyline, and the final volume is called "Home" which ties in with the lyrics as well. 

The downside is that it would get released as part of a movie where we watch the Angel Moon puppet singing this song but you know, I'll take it.

Just wanted to say that I've made a new thread for general discussion about the leaks, as this thread has got quite off topic and has drifted away from being a place for all of the lyrics to be kept.

Does anyone here has the lyrics of The Race(whatever it takes version)?

The "Whatever it takes" version, is that the one in which they sing

"Whatever it takes

I keep racing till the race is run"

as the final part?

Here's what I've quickly been able to get from listening to them two or three times. Very rough and will most likely contain spelling mistakes and misheard lyrics.

 

Kaleidoscope version:

Spoiler

And in all of time, and in all of space
Only you make my heart race
Only your eyes, only a taste
Ahhh
And I'm in and out of time, in and out of space
Such a beautiful face
And I'm seeing lights, I'm seeing shapes
All over the place

Ohh, ohh-oh, ohh-oh
The side? of kaleidoscopes
Explodes
In colours
And im on fire
I'm on fire be..
I'm on fire
...
Ka-kalei-kalei-kaleidoscope
Kaleidoscope

(...)

Everything a time, everything a place
So full of crystalline shapes
A divine design, but if ... wakes
Ahhh
And in all of time, and in all of space
Only you make my heart race
Now im spinning and I'm flying
Onto placates?

I'm just creating? shapes
Ohh, ohh-oh, ohh-oh
The side? of kaleidoscopes
Explodes
In colours
And I'm on fire
I'm on fire be..
I'm on fire
...
Ka-kalei-kalei-kaleidoscope
Kaleidoscope

(...)

(...)
(..., i do)
(...)
(..., i do)
(...)
(..., i do)

Ohh, ohh-oh, ohh-oh
The side? of kaleidoscopes
Explodes
In colours
And I'm on fire
I'm on fire be..
I'm on fire
The colours are...
Ka-kalei-kalei-kaleidoscope
Ka-kalei-kalei-kaleidoscope
Ka-kalei-kalei-kaleidoscope

 

Whatever it takes version:

Spoiler

And in all of time, and in all of space
Only you make my heart race
Only your eyes, only a taste
Ahhh
And I'm in and out of time, in and out of space
Such a beautiful face
And I'm seeing lights, I'm seeing shapes

If you want, you can push
I'll keep falling/following?
That light from the shooting star
If you want, you can push
I'll just fall
with a head full of dreams?
and ...

Everything a time, everything a place
So full of crystalline shapes
A divine design, but if ... wakes
Ahhh
And in all of time, and in all of space
Only you make my heart race
Now im spinning and I'm flying
Onto placates?

If you want, you can push
I'll keep falling/following?
That light from the shooting star
If you want, you can push
I'll just fall
with a head full of dreams?
and ...

(...)
(..., i do)
(...)
(..., i do)
(...)
(..., i do)

Whatever it takes
I keep racing till the race is run
Oh I keep racing till the race is run
