Q. Dear Oracle,
Life In Technicolour is one of my all time favourite Coldplay songs. I have always wondered why the track on the album Viva La Vida doesn't have lyrics it is just an instrumental track? However the music video is a full version complete with lyrics. Is there a reason for this?
Thank you very much for answering my question, Elle.

The Oracle replies:

Life in Technicolor and Life in Technicolor ii are two different songs. Part ii is the lyric version that was released as a single (from the Prospekt's March EP) and therefore a video was made.
