THE MUSE : UPRISING [2009]

Δικαίως το single τους με τις περισσότερες πωλήσεις, αυτό το τραγούδι είναι από το άλμπουμ The Resistance [2009]. Οπως λέει ο Bellamy: “…Εκφράζει μια γενική δυσπιστία προς τους τραπεζίτες, τις παγκόσμιες εταιρείες και τους πολιτικούς.” Θα μπορούσε κάλλιστα να είναι ο ύμνος των ημερών.

Rightfully the band’s best selling single, this song is from their 2009 album, The Resistance. In Bellamy words: “…It expresses a general mistrust of bankers, global corporations, and politicians.” Could well be the anthem of the days.


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 its toll
If you could flick the 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
(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)
They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious
(So come on)

    I’ve totally missed out on music since 2000. I’m surrounded by rap addicts. Except… all the glorious music I hear from below. 4 guys, playing for real… standards & jams.
    Of course, that music is not available to the public. I wish you were here to hear!

      Most interesting music isn’t available / allowed to the public, Resa. This is the state of things today unfortunately.

        Sad! Anyway, when I’m at my computer, I listen to your station. When I’m sewing I listen to my small collection of CD’s or an oldies station occasionally, which is pretty good.

      …like Oannes says…. anything that would put our brain gears to work gets marginalized. Glad you enjoyed it! 😘😘
