What is the song 'Viva La Vida' by Coldplay supposed to be about?

Posted on Jan 21, 2014, 11:48:21 PM PST
I believe this song is about Napoleon after he was exiled for the second and last time to the remote island of St. Helena in the Atlantic Ocean where he passed the remainder of his life in solitude with just his thoughts and writings to keep him company. This was a man who had ruled most of the "civilized" world now reduced to a memory.

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

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
