Viva la Vida - Live your life Gods way or Satans w

It was a huge hit, Viva la Vida by Coldplay. In english meaning "live your life", is a song with a great musical background. The drums are pounding, bells are ringing and the sounds of violings fill the air. Every music lover with admire the way this populari song has been set up. The cover of the CD gives you the feeling that a revolution is going on. A revolution against the 'rulers' of this world... namely the religious rulers during the days of the French Revolution. It looks as this group is saying... we should conquer the religous, conquer God and Christ and life our live the way 'we' want to life.

Picture showing the peoples revolt against the religous rulers. Is this symbolism for humanities revolt against God and His Law?
When i tried to get some backgroupnd about this song. I get some strange vibes when i try to figure this one out. I'll give you my intake lyric by lyric in bold typo. You have to see the song as lucifer (the devil, the serpant) is sining this song.

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

[Satan was kicked out of heaven, and because sin enter this world, he could 'rule' this world. But God limited the abbility Satan could control this Earth and in the end. Satan can no longer deceive humanity. Christ defeated Satan on the Cross and when Jesus returns, Satan will have no ont the decieve and he will await his final punisment, being thrown into Hell.]

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemies' eyes
Listened as the crowd would sing
Now the old king is dead, long live the king
One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

[Satan was happy when people of this world, followed Satan into sin, instead of following Christ by accepting his righteousness. Satan was in control, but he dscovered that he build his home on a planet, Which God sent his Son for the deliver them from Sin and make it possible for them to return to the love and glory of God.]

It was a wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn't believe what I'd become
Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely stringsad
Oh, who would ever want to be king?

[In the end people will understand what the danger which Satan has become. Christians will be glad that Satan has been dealt with and that Satan will be dealth with. he will lose his kingly position of this world. And Christ will become the one and only true king, eliminating Sin and the Devil and fallen angels and humanity. Satan is sad that he lost his position to Christ.]

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
I know St Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

[Satan hears the heavenly musci of the New Jerusalem. He is hearing the angelic voices signing Holy, Holy, Holy (a song Satan sang himself, before he was defilled by Sin. He still does not really understand why he cannot return to heaven. But at least, so sings Satan. He is now still rulling this world.]

If even Satan is lamenting about the fact that oned day he would be entering back into heaven again. Why life your life in your own way? Way keep on persisting that Satans way is right. Why not follow Christ. Why not following Him. Following Him who... as Catholics would say... Saint Peter would be calling your name and you'll be entering heaven.
