Great but Difficult

The Coldplay song, “Viva La Viva” is great but it is difficult for me as a Japanese speaker to understand properly.

The lyrics contain the words, “pillar of salt” and “Roman cavalry choirs “; I presume that those are based on Biblical phrases.

Japanese people tend not to know much about Christianity.

I‘ve recently learned the meaning of “Writing on the wall”.

I think I am going to study the Bible a bit more.
