Muse-ings


Anyone want to speculate on Muse and why on the biggest night of the tightly controlled music industry they get to feature lyrics and visual symbolism that appear to be in opposition to the regularly scheduled drivel they promote? They also won 'Rock Album of the Year' for "The Resistance." Call me cynical but there may be more to it than just making money. Sing along kids.

Here's another video since the grammys must think the HD version is worth something.

A better quality one.    Also here.

Uprising
The paranoia is in bloom
The P.R. transmissions will resume
They'll try to push drugs, 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 with 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
And they will stop degrading us
And 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 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 is 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

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

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

Hey, hey, hey, hey

  1. Funny thing about the lead singer of Muse-he once appeared on the Alex Jones show and among other things expressed skepticism of the official story of 9/11. Over a year later he was confronted by some media outlet with his comments about 9/11 at which point he retracted/denied his statements and essentially expressed support for the official story. I guess his manager told him you're more likely to make money if you don't rock the boat on issues like 9/11.

  2. I love protest music. I'll assume the singer's backtrack on 911 is NOT sincere. He's working on Rothschild central banks and the British Monarchy, I say: "right on target"

  3. You should listen to the song 'Unnatural Selection' on the same album. Towards the end of the song it goes, 'They'll laugh as they watch us crawl, the lucky don't share at all, no hope for fate, it's a random chance selection, I want the truth. Try to ride out the storm, whilst they'll make you believe that they are the special ones (we have not been chosen)'...

  4. They had a disease outbreak at the playboy mansion. I wonder if they got into some bad crack?

  5. "they are the special ones (we have not been chosen)"

    this type of stuff does not go unnoticed by the tribe

  6. Well it sure can't go "unnoticed by the tribe" because they run the industry. Maybe they see an audience and smell profit in this neo-60's protest music? With limitations imposed as to what can and cannot be said?

    Maybe Bellamy is not sincere in his 9/11 backtrack and playing his own game?

    One little red flag to me is that Muse has in the past, and will this year, open for nwo scam band U2 on some dates.

  7. I must admit that I would say that if I had to name a favourite band then the Muse would certainly be it. I’m not the type that call recall lyrics on albums etc but I have listened to all of their albums and there is a definite thread of subversion of the elites all through their music. The current album is just the most blatant.

    I have heard other posters saying negative things about them but without going into detail. It is quite possible that they are cynically mining the rich vein of awakened thought out there - even among the younger generations. I would be disappointed if they were a bunch of posers along the lines of U2.

    Bono will jump on any bandwagon that’s big enough to carry his ego. I still remember his sell out that the track ‘Bloody Sunday’ had nothing to do with the political situation in Ireland. He would flies thousands of miles to highlight the latest ‘cause’ but wouldn’t drive 100 miles north to support his country folk. Not that I’m bitter or anything (grin).

    Either way I’ll still listen as most of the music industry’s ‘product’ leaves me cold – must be old age approaching.

  8. I liked Muse when I first heard them a few years ago, liked them even more when Bellamy suggested that 9/11 was an "inside job" but I cannot make excuses for a guy who backtracks like this:

    In 2006 Bellamy said that he believed the 9/11 attacks were an "inside job".[14] However, in 2009 he told Rolling Stone that he did not believe this: "There is loads of stuff on the Internet suggesting 9/11 was an inside job. But that is not my belief.”[15]

    Now, I suppose its possible he said that simply so he could get the phrase "9/11 inside job" into Rolling Stone. I doubt it though, to me it stinks of pure cowardice. We are Change or somebody should put a camera in his face and ask him what(who) changed his mind....

  11. I still listen to Gordon Lightfoot and Credence Clearwater Revival. I highly recommend the Black Lodge singers (Indian Drummers) It will clear the cob webs out of your head. I am always up for a little Ray Lynch also. He doesn't say anything, just the sounds of the spheres.

  12. I added a screenshot of Bellamy making a masonic eye sign in case all of the videos get deleted. What was that, pointing at the hidden side of things or??? The camera cut away quickly when he did that.

    Even Glenn Beck has to mention Muse's performance as a "call to revolution."

    Vigilant Citizen had a post on Muse from last night but it appears they pulled it. ???
    They do have a forum board on the grammys overall.

  13. I wrote the 'right on target' comment about this Ultravox-Gary Glitter Tribute act. That should have been directed to the set designer. The Monarchy and Banks are NOT in the lyrics. So my comment is about theatrical props, which may have nothing to do with the actual song. I withdraw the slack I cut him on his 911 flip. At this late date anyone propping up the official version is beneath contempt.

  14. yeah anon, one either passes or fails the 9/11 litmus test. Backtrack = fails.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Cheers Anon @6:52 - I’m starting to feel it (grin). Once you start sounding like your dad you’re doomed. I passed that milestone a while ago.

    The consensus seems to be that they have failed the 911 litmus test. Damn.

  16. well spotted kenny, the triangle shape with his eye looking through is his 'reveal' to other members that he's part of the club.
    in other words, he will do as he is told in exchange for 'success'
    little does he know.

    "it's time the fat cats had a heart attack" says the multimillionare singer of muse. what a total joke the guy is.

    if you were to confront him on his obvious hypocracy he would probably start frothing at the mouth
    vigilant citizen website does good stuff on the occult music biz
    and pseudooccultmedia goes way into it and other industrys like fashion

  17. Buckminster-Fuller claimed that humans progressed via design science. The Politicians and Corporate Mafians keep these to themselves until the right time arises for the market [ see the fall of Communism with the global market powered by the internet].

    The 'freedom' people want u to open your 3rd eye, think positively, love one another - whatever, words, thoughts, emotions and the word 'freedom' ever repeated.

    Freedom - what is it , anyone care to define total freedom. Freedom from eating, freedom from breathing, freedom from aging, freedom from responsability and cooperation with others - there ain't no freedom though the state of minimal restrictions might be worth thinking about.

    I notice the above group use 'hand-signals' , are they for the 'deaf'.

    'We will be victorious' - oh yeah, right on , mein pop fuhrer.

    'rise up', 'take power back' [ u have none]

    'our flag ascend' - seen plenty of freedom flags fluttering on the empires flagpoles.

    Get out on the streets kids and get arrested for freedom.

    Its time that someone else took the shit, someone we call bad - hooray!

    Apologies for cynicism but technology has done more for our well-being than any regurgitated,'revolutionary' pop-song.

    'Dont be afraid to die ' :}

    cheers

  18. I won't even try and speak for Muse nor defend them. I love the song but I do think it's being allowed airplay and an award because the 'fat cats' want us to riot. They want us to rise up, they are egging us on! Muse is being used. This song is everywhere, even used on the t.v. show 'V'. They are pushing the U.S. as far as they can and so far, they can't seem to get much of a reaction out of us. Time to turn the heat up, is it not?

  19. My feelings....

    anyone who is allowed airtime today has sold their soul for rock and roll.

    No matter what words are used in the songs, they are filled vacuous non-sense.
    The music industry is the last vestige of idolism, next to sport.
    Where the polititians have failed with their hockey stick weather postulisations, we now have meat wearing a la gaga, uprising blatherings a la Muse and pornographic occultism a la Rihanna.

    Amazing how far we, as a human race, have come.
    Welcome to dystopia.
    Makes me sick to the stomach.

  20. "Here's the deal, folks. You do a commercial - you're off the artistic roll call, forever. End of story. Okay? You're another whore at the capitalist gang-bang, and if you do a commercial, there's a price on your head. Everything you say is suspect and every word that comes out of your mouth is now like a turd falling into my drink" - Bill Hicks

  21. "anyone who is allowed airtime today has sold their soul for rock and roll."

    Excellent point and why some musicians these days own their own production company like Ray Lynch and head drummer Ronnie Scaby Robe of the Black Lodge Singers. They cut the middle man out.

    Joanne Shenandoah is unmatched as a songstress in my opinion. Her song "I think I may need a man tonight" brought the house down. In a way Indians are showing Americans how it is done, distribute your own music. Just because you don't find it at walmart doesn't mean there are not some good music out there.

    The music industry has virtually destroyed itself with trash, except for those who still think noise and satanic rambling is music.

  23. Bill Hicks is fucking awesome. So is Immortal Technique-check out his videos for the songs "Cause of Death" and "Bin Laden" on youtube. He was almost mainstream but of course his lyrics prevent him from ever really making it in the industry. He was offered a huge deal on a big label but was told he would have to "tone it down". He chose to stay independent as a result.

    I like those misanthropic European metal albums where you can't read the logo and there is no upc. That stuff will never be seen or heard by poseur, corporate rock, whore sellouts and that's how we like it.

  26. Void of Silence - Temple of Stagnation

    Beg for scraps from bloated masters
    Lay our hands on ruptured soil
    And know we chose to violate the earth
    Billions weep under cloying skies
    Starless sunless cursed wastes
    Spread your arms wide
    And embrace this world we made
    For ourselves

  27. I won't try to defend Bellamy for his actions at all. From my point of view Bellamy and Muse of course are musicians, you can call them entertainers, hypocrites, or whatever else. But you can't blame them for not being good at what they're doing, since they are "entertaining" more people than you can even imagine and that's their job really.

    Now, if we see Bellamy from another view, yes, i aggre with your thoughts of him being a coward and a really weak personallity. I don't know at all why he did that masonic signal on a worldwide programm, but, as you suggested guys, it obviously is just for becoming more popular, just to become richer...

    I would recommend you to listen to their music regardless of what they do or say in their personal lives, don't judge music from the lives of the people who play or write it.

    I hope i didn't "piss you off" with my comment.
