Coldplay's It

[In this outtake from Vida La Vida or Death and his Friends, Chris Martin and co take on Stephen King's It. Er, spoilers for those who haven't read the book.]

Take me to the deadlights baby
At the gateway to the macroverse.
Through the tunnel, past the Turtle
Where Its natural form is even worse.

Pennywise used his evil powers
To control the bully Henry Bowers.
And George won't be chasing any more boats
Into the storm drains where everything floats.

Let's all meet at Neibolt Street
Where the werewolf-leper thing crawls
We'll shoot Its face with a silver slug
In the house with the bleeding walls.

Remember the solemn promise we made
Once we'd found our way out of the sewer?
Where we'd driven It down deep underground
And Beverly let us all do her.

Take me to The Barrens baby
Where the dirty old river flows.
We'll be safe in our secret clubhouse
From the clown with the blood red nose.

There's something quite extraordinary
About the quiet town of Derry.
He thrusts his fists against the posts
And still insists he sees the ghosts...
