Uprising Lyrics - Muse

Review The Song (20)

The paranoia is in bloom, the PR
The 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
A package not 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
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Interchanging mind control
sponsored links
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 that
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

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Hey .. hey ... hey .. hey!

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Hey .. hey ... hey .. hey!

Syrians will get this :) | Reviewer: almost dead | 6/6/12

whoever is reading this, i dont know just how much u know about wats going on in syria, bt this song really speaks to wats happening here nd it has a HUGE effect on th young segment of our population (16-23 yo), "watch our flag ascend" i honestly think that this part can only be applied on th syrian revolution as since th revolution started th old "independance" flag is being used to symbolize th revolution, nd this part here "we should never be afraid to die" i think its been proven to th whole world that we arent here (this -> www.youtube.com/watch?v=KlYXAAe5WQo is one out of thousands of similar incidents that are so very well documented) .. left winged parties in th western world complain abt things like governments monitoring th internet nd such things, bitch plz we're dying our butts out here, just today more than a hundred were slain wth cold blood by government relating mercenaries, im not really sure why im writing all of that, but since im still alive i owe my friends who died here to make their dead voices to be heard, +20,000 dead so far, +100,000 imprisoned, +200,000 refugees, may god have mercy on their souls .. viva free syria
free the man to free the world ..

Anti iluminatti album | Reviewer: Bumble | 2/14/12

youtube alex jones and muse. This should be the soundtrack of movments like occupy etc :) The 99% are rising! We do not forgive, we do not forget , expect us. etc etc etc. So many now :D All relivent tho :)

sam adams | Reviewer: bob crum | 2/12/12

The song is about freedom, individual resonsibility, and liberty. It's about fighting against a big government,
dictators & bullies, people, places, & things that want total
control, & are trying to steal it from the people, the sovereign individual.

For those of you with the long posts | Reviewer: Realist | 10/29/11

Yes, it's about rebellion.
Population control is important, look at china with their 1.2 billion population, and a male:female ratio greater than 8:1. But No, there is no global entity that decides when people need to die to keep population in check. You're just being paranoid.
There is no "Big Brother", although there are seemingly omnipresent government entities.
Capitalist countries are indeed no longer controlled by the governments themselves, they are too heavily influenced by the capitalist entities within their jurisdiction that throw a sack of money in their faces and say "ignore us".
Sorta how Saddam Hussein and UBL bribed the governments to hide their operatives and deny any association. Works almost the same with commercial entities in a capitalistic society.
Even "free" media (Like CNN, NBC, BBC, etc.) is not completely ambiguous.

Wow | Reviewer: full_volume | 7/18/11

Jeez I had no idea about the song I knew it was about rebellion but never this...
All I know is that it's a great song that definitely has an effect on people. I love Muse and this song, but I'll never think the same way about it after reading these reviews...
Also (yes, I have an obsession) this is a great themesong for any show involving rebels...great job Muse.

Fats cats is not the army | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/24/11

though i believe everything you say and di so before i read your comment fat cats is not the army. fat Cats refers to the people in power the people with all the money, the people who control currencies of entire nations. It is not the Army. fat cats refer to the bankers who now control and own everything worth something.

The World Is So Ignorant ( i know more and i'm 13) | Reviewer: WATCH YOUR BACK | 6/21/11

This song is about the government trying to poison the world and get the population under 500million so they can control us and how we must "rise up and take the power back" and how the government is such a lie that it should be shut down and die "fat cats" is the army by the way!
if you don't believe the government is doing this they shut down NASA because they recovered files from HAARP(look it up) that says they(HAARP) are using mind control and manipulation of the weather to destroy the population. They caused Haiti earthquake and Japan earthquake there is a way to stop them though and that is standing up for ourselves not through riots and stuff but with our voices and power as nations of the world. Against the Aristocrats who also put poisons in our medicine like squaline which directly attacks your immune system causing many problems.
also DO NOT i repeat DO NOT eat gum or splenda or any fake sugars they have ASPARTAME in them and it slowly KILLS you truthfully liquifying your organs seriously DO NOT eat any food with ASPARTAME in it AT ALL
DO NOT drink tap water honestly drink from an ocean if you must(boil the water and salt filter it of course) BUT DO NOT DRINK THE WATER they put a substance in the water that's not even allowed in toxic chemical plants(unless you have millions of $)
go to the Google and type in HARRP weather photos and STAY SAFE! ALWAYS WATCH WHERE THERE'S BEEN BLOOD!(in other words check what has happened to many people who have had shots or bad weather and DO NOT TRUST Barack Obama I'm not A terrorist I'm telling you something i believe you don't have to listen to me but keep it in mind when one of your loved ones die! forever always: Trying to save your BUTT!

wow | Reviewer: nn | 5/1/11

I am an iranian people. and im telling this to all iranian who left commetnts..if you were worried about irans problem you would do sth not just listen to a music and be hopefull that sth diffrent happen so shut up and dont say rediculase thing.

NWO | Reviewer: Rene | 4/23/11

Its about the New World Order and the police state. I was surprised to read these responses. I thought we Muse fans all knew Matt's viewpoint about the NWO. He wears shirts at his concerts as well, a lot of Alex Jones' stuff.

Love it | Reviewer: Anonymous :) | 4/19/11

I dont know what this song is about, i just love to listen to the words... Such a magical song. The guitars sound so alien, and the way that the vocals are quite distant makes it really diverse and different to other rock songs.

wake up people please! | Reviewer: everyone | 3/30/11

Ofcourse this song is for all those places on the earth where there is conflict, BUT...

Don't fall for the fairy tale that has been told about these conflicts! They are all instigated by the ruling powers of the world in order to achieve a Brave New World / New World Order! Just like on the Georgia Guidestones, THIS is the United Nations' agenda.

So peoples of the world, especially in the US and EU, WAKE UP! Ignore the PR-transmissions of our media, and follow truthful news instead, for instance on www.infowars.com. Because there IS a war on for your mind!

Due to our Age of Information there has never been so much evidence available (for most people) to access freely on the internet. Take advantage of this, and get informed! You will need hours upon hours to reconstruct the reality that has been programmed in your mind by the ruling powers. After this you can see through the smoke that has been blown up in front of your eyes your whole life.

Don't think of this as separate conspiracies, because there all connected by the same people towards the same goal. Most of Muse's songs are about this, if you can read between the lines, sometimes the lyrics are in-your-face-obvious! Why would a world-renowned band name a live-album H.A.A.R.P., a supposed scientific facility? Look it up!

if you can connect Kennedy, Martin L. King, Malcolm X, every secret CIA operation, 9/11, London, Madrid, Al-Qaida, UFO's, area 51, black-ops, 1984, Brave New World, chemtrails, vaccinations, BP Oil Spill, illuminati, masons, codex alimentarius, Bilderberg, Tri-lateral commision, UN, stock market crash 2008, flash crash 2010,....., then you are beginning to see the whole picture.

Like Matthew says in Uprising, open up your third eye! get spiritual, your emotions will guide you in this process to separate good from evil and truth from lies. Don't let anyone convince you otherwise, if u feel there's something wrong with what you have been told it probably is, even though u don't yet rationally understand.

Each and everyone of you NOW has a choice to make, or the decision will be made for you...

... and don't stop listening to Muse ;)

We will be victorious! | Reviewer: armaghan | 3/5/11

We will be victorious, no doubt!
I'm so happy to see people in my country listening to this very song, im not that hopeful coz ordinary people are not awared of whats really happening in big cities like Tehran and all those blood and stuff...
but im quite sure god will take our side coz were on justice side.

Green Cause of Iran | Reviewer: Milad | 2/7/11

I agreed with both of last comments!
We(Iranian people) listening to this track very much these weeks, because it reminds us how our people died in the streets of our city and how dictators of our country murdered them!

and this track give us hope that someday we can be winners!!

"They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious"

good job Muse!!

Iran's election | Reviewer: Aref | 1/6/11

I'm totally agree with Sarah...I think this song just was wrote for this kind of situations...specially this line:"With all the green belts wrapped around our minds"...It reminds me the "Green movement" which started after Iran's election...I really love this song because It always keeps us awaken.

It just suited Iran's election | Reviewer: Sarah | 9/20/10

This song and let's say the whole "Resistance" album was so comforting and yet provoking after what Iranian people went through last year; how they wanted their votes back and stood against the dictatorship. People were missing, murdered and tortured savagely by the government but they didn't give up.
I remember the taxi driver was listening to some false news (as usual ) on the radio and he had no intention of turning it down so I grabbed my ipod and listened to this track to calm myself down. Especially this line "We have to unify and watch our flag ascend" always gives me some hope that maybe all the blood was not shed in vane and we'll be victorious after a while.
