“Uprising” by Muse

Paranoia is in bloom,
The PR transmissions will resume,
They’ll try to push drugs that keep us all dumbed down,
And hope that we will never see the truth around
(So come on)
Another promise, another scene,
Another packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed,
And all the green belts wrapped around our minds,
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined
(So come on)

They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us,
They will not control us,
We will be victorious
(So come on)

Interchanging mind control,
Come let the revolution take it’s toll,
If you could flick a switch and open your third eye,
You’d see that
We should never be afraid to die
(So come on)

Rise up and take the power back,
It’s time the fat cats had a heart attack,
You know that their time’s coming to an end,
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend

They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us,
They will not control us,
We will be victorious

 

**I wonder.  What would force me to rebel?  What would cause you to start an uprising?

One Response to ““Uprising” by Muse”

  1. Other than the obvious, I love this song. I first heard it with my younger brother, who is rather obsessed with it. One time I actually listened to it, and what do you know? I loved it, too! By then I had already looked the lyrics up and saw this, it took my breath away. Faintly reminds me of V, because of the way he so viciously stood up to the government. His bullet-proof idea.
