I wish I could "Like" comments on Pandora like I can on Facebook..

this song is a bit dark
Awesome, had it on as background music and pulled me away from my work to actually tune in, love 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 .
SHUT UP
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
The thing i really like about this band is the story telling...it reminds me so much of the NWoBHM, ie; Iron Maiden. Two earbuds up!

@Jacob: AGREED!

F**k politics. I just want to enjoy awesome songs such as this one while the world still turns and I have working ears.

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 . This is impossible when regulations are ignored, votes are forged, and campaign-bas e d bribery is the basis of our political system. The Republicans want you to believe that corporations aren't the force behind most government corruption, they are capable of self-regulat i o n , and self-interes t works to the benefit of all. A
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.
novrain6
It's not Bush and it's certainly not Obama. It's about Tony Blair. Remember that Muse is a British band.
Who's the Cigarette-Sm o k i n g Man?
Obama?
sullivkeith

great song, great band - EPIC!
Bush?

I love that thought - that this is the song you hear as you wait to get to heaven (or hell for that matter).
this is the song of gods frankly. I think this songs plays as you wait to get into heaven.
dear_abbie2
such an amazing song.
purely awesome just amazingly awesome.
As a resident X-Files geek, I would like to point out that this song is pretty much about the Cigarette-Sm o k i n g Man.
One of the best songs that I know of.
ha epic indeed..
Such an epic song. F**king epic.
great song, great album.
