One night when my friends and I were drinking, someone asked if anyone had any EDM song requests, so I told her to play this song. None of my friends knew this song, but they all loved it.

I envision this as a super corrupt tyrant is about to be slain by revolutionar i e s , thus ending oppression of a government. The Crescendo and climax of the song is the nation realizing that they have found freedom.

An awesome composition; Killer intro/closer .

I think this is a frank and honest song about a frusterated induvidual of a self-duped age - we live with so many luxuries and understandin g s from past eras...yet we erase them with the knowledge we've gained...we use to to create excuses for ourselves and our lack of self awareness and world awarness THe whole phrase"in the world but not of the world".....I t . . . i t ' s just not hapenning!!! And so, I think that the person who wrote this song is just plain fed up! because they know we

Both parties are a fundamental lie. The Democrats want you to believe that your government is currently capable and willing to represent you rather than serve corporations .

All - dont be so blind. there is no difference between the 2 parties. each strokes each other off for political gain andshare hot tub group orgies. its not about either "party" its much larger than that. its about the global elitists, the Bilderburg Group, Trilateral Commission, New World Order. Wake up. Muse has and are trying to share their knowledge with you. Listen intently and learn.

@ Rachel: No. Not Obama. More like oil hungry republicans. Bush would be a shining example.

It's not Bush and it's certainly not Obama. It's about Tony Blair. Remember that Muse is a British band.
