Ruled By Secrecy Lyrics - Muse

Review The Song (1)

Repress and restrain
Steal the pressure and the pain
Wash the blood off your hands
This time she won't understand

Change in the air
And they'll hide everywhere
And no one knows who's in control

You're working so hard
And you're never in charge
Your death creates success
Rebuild and suppress

Change in the air
And they'll hide everywhere
And no one knows who's in control

Change in the air
And they'll hide everywhere
And no one knows who's in control

Interpretation of the other side | Reviewer: Stakemeier | 2/9/13

Mostly (and because of the band's own statement) this song is interpretated to show the desperation of someone repressed by bad government. But I also think it could be the exactly reverse of this interpretation: This song is about the government or more precisely about the leading person of the government itself. "Repress and restrain" is what he's doing but he's standing under high pressure. "You're working so hard" is some kind of ironic by the narrator (who seems to be neutral; like making a neutral threat)"and you're never in charge" is also sarcastic because the bad leaders always try to present theirselves as much innocent as they can though that's a lie. "Your death creates success" is of course true for the rebells who are aiming this and want to form a new government. Climax of course is the chorus: "Change in the air" is the biggest fixpoint to claim this different meaning. If he'd be talking about depression like taking it out of Orwell's 1984 this would be way to hopeful. "And they'll hide everywhere" can mean spies by the government but in this interpretation also spies by the revolution who already infiltrated government business. "And no one knows who's in control" also fits better in this kind of interpretation because most of the time the leaders are highly-known (like in 1984) in contrast to the revolution-leaders who are mostly invisible and hidden in the underground.
