"Army of One" as written by Mikkel Eriksen, Tor Hermansen, Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Will Champion and Johnny Buckland....
Been around the world, wonders to view
Been around the world, looking for someone like you
Pyramids try, babylon too
But the beautiful-est treasures lie in the deepest blue

So I'll never say die, I'm never untrue
I'm never so high as when I'm with you
And there isn't a fire, that I wouldn't walk through
My army of one is going to fight for you

Been around the world, universe too
I've been around flying, baby, there's nothing I wouldn't do
Dance with the stars, while I see the moon
I'll be standing there besides you
Right when the storm comes through

'Cause I'll never say die, I'm never untrue
I'm never so high as when I'm with you
And there isn't a fire, that I wouldn't walk through
My army of one is going to fight for you
My army of one is going to fall for you, yeah

'Cause you're right, 'cause you're right
'Cause you're right
My army of one is gonna call it through

Say my heart is my gun, army of one
Yeah my heart is my gun, army of one
Is my only weapon, army of one
Say my heart is my gun, army of one

(So I race for it)
Stare into darkness, staring at doom
My heart boom, bo-boom boom
Stare into darkness, admit defeat
Coming home and I'm finding no peace

And I know, and I know and I know
I know I'm out of luck
And I know, and I know and I know
I know what you've got

So I put my hands up to the sky, feel alive
I've got a rocketship that I want to ride
I put my hands up to the sky, it's all right
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

(So I race for it) wherever you are, I'll find that treasure
(So I race for it)

Stare into darkness, staring at doom
You make my heart go boom, bo-boom boom
Superhero, a masterpiece
Been in a city but it centered around me

And I know, and I know and I know
I know I'm in luck
And I know, and I know and I know
I know when I'm not

I just put my hands up to the sky, feel alive
I've got a rocketship that I want to ride
I put my hands up to the sky, feel it inside
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

I just put my hands up to the sky, feeling alright
I've got a rocket, eyes on the prize
I put my hands up to the sky, I'm gonna find
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

(So I reach for it) wherever you are, I'll find that treasure
(So I reach for it)yeah yeah wherever you are, I'll find that treasure
(So I reach for it) and I know, and I know, and I know
(So I reach for it) I know what I've got
X marks the spot
So I put my hands up to the sky, feeling alright
I've got a rocketship that I want to ride
I put my hands up to the sky, the feeling is like
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

I put my hands up to the sky, feeling alright
I've got a rocket, eyes on the price
I put my hands up to the sky, I'm gonna fly
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure, yeah yeah wherever you are

    My InterpretationThis song to me is about falling in love. The narrator clearly loves this girl and wants to protect her.
    He starts by saying she is more wonderful then any wonders of the world which is funny because it is the 8th track which could be like she's the 8th wonder of the world.
    Then he goes on saying that his army of one (himself) is going to fight for this women. He is true to her and she gives him strength. she like "I'm never so high than when I'm with you" and "There's no fire that I wouldn't walk through"
    Then in the next verse he says "There's nothing I wouldn't do"
    The chorus continues and then it ends with "My heart is my gun, army of one" which is one of my favorite lines from Coldplay right now. The heart is a powerful weapon. He calls himself an army of one but his only weapon is the heart.

    Song MeaningI agree Oxavarious but maybe not about, but from God.

    Lets not get all religious. Religion has nothing to do with it. Please let's get rid of religion. I believe in more. I'm not sure what but it's there and She's real. They are real. I'm not even sure what Coldplay ment with these lyrics when they were written. But if you listen carefully messages seep though in all songs. Listen to Kaleidoscope from this album. Mostly you hear it. A strange short song and let it pass. Almost annoying but listen to the text...Clearer than this it doesn't get.

    Lilydunne: It's also true but He/She really loves us. Like real life.


    It's God talking to you. What you mean to Her and that his army will even fall for you. That's giving a life! I've been around the universe too. I never say die, I am never untrue. Been flying baby! I'll be beside YOU when the storm comes through. Even if YOU'Re not aware of ME. (please note: some things are figuratively speaking, some not)

    My InterpretationArmy of One is about the singer himself how he loves and respect nature and how he will protect the planet from destruction, with his good heart.
