Q. Hello Oracle!

First off, I'm sorry for this throwback question in the middle of all the Ghost Stories excitement, but it has been bugging me for a while!

In the intro to Til' Kingdom Come during a concert (Toronto 2006 I think), Chris says, 'This is a song we wrote for Johnny Cash, and in return he gave us our..." I can't make out what he says. Would you be able to remember? :)

Thanks in advance if you answer this! Much love from India.


The Oracle replies:

Ah, this was a lovely question to answer for the pleasure of watching the wonderful video clip of that performance.
Chris said "This is a song we wrote for Johnny Cash, and in return he gave us our dress sense".
If you don't know, Johnny Cash was also known as The Man in Black due to his trademark black clothes. During the Twisted Logic tour (X&Y), Coldplay dressed in black hence the reference.
