Interesting Coldplay quote

In the midst of all this trip stuff, here's an interesting quote from Chris Martin, lead singer of Coldplay:

There's a hidden track on X&Y, "Til Kingdom Come." That's so biblical of you.

"A Message" and "Til Kingdom Come" both come from having quite a religious upbringing. "A Message" is taken from a hymn we used to sing called "My Song Is Love Unknown," and we'd say "kingdom come" every week in the Lord's Prayer. One of the great things about being forced to go to church services is that we'd sing all these big songs. That's partly why I'm obsessed with getting everyone to sing along at our shows. It makes me feel like I'm a part of something.
