Also, unlike most other pop tunes, it is sung from the perspective of a king. The beginning of the track finds this royal individual looking at his life as a dichotomy. And the second verse begins by giving us an allusion into how he gained his authority, which seems to have been through violent action during a tumultuous era in general. Then he questions why someone would actually desire to be king.

This post is a little different from some of our normal posts, but it does fit with the vision and purpose of Baptist The church needs to be able to interact with the culture in which it lives and ministers. We need to have winsome answers for the questions they are asking. This will help us engage culture with the Gospel, because we will be able to move from something they know i. It was their first chart topping song in both the US and Great Britain.
The lyrics to the song contain historical and Christian references, and the track is built around a looping string section in unison with a digital processed piano, with other layers gradually being added as the song builds. The track was released on 13 June as the album's second single, debuting to critical acclaim and commercial success. In Spanish viva is an expression used to acclaim someone or something,  so "Long Live Life" is an accurate translation and the painting reflects the artistic irony of acclaiming life while suffering physically. During the album's production, "Viva la Vida" was one of the songs that had polarised each member's opinion over which version they should choose.
