New York Yankees: The Fall From Grace

I can remember a time when the New York Yankees were the Kings of Baseball and it seemed that no other team could ever win the World Series. That certainly doesn’t appear to be the case this year, and hasn’t really been the case since the year 2000. I’m not sure why the Yankees haven’t been holding up the way they used to. This year, they have been in last place for practically the entire season. What happened? Perhaps the enormous salaries are finally getting to their heads and not allowing them to perform properly, or maybe the thought of losing their beloved Yankee Stadium after this season has most players feeling too depressed to function. Whatever the case may be, I can’t help but to think of the New York Yankees whenever the song Viva La Vida by Cold Play blares through my car speakers. And hush… I’m a girl, so it’s cool if I listen to that crap! 🙂 It’d be nice if the Yankees could pull through and make it to at lest second or third in the AL East, but we are mid season already and things aren’t looking so good.

LYRICS TO VIVA LA VIDA

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

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes
Listen 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

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
Once you go there was never, never an honest word
That was when I ruled the world

It was the 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 string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

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 Saint Peter won’t call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
