Let's start over again
Why can't we start it over again?

Just let us start it over again

And we'll be good
This time we'll get it...
Get it right

It's our last chance to forgive ourselves

    It is a story of humanity coming to an end and everyone pinning their hopes on a group of astronauts who go out to explore space and spread humanity to another planet. Part 1 is a jaded acceptance that civilization will end. Part 2 is a desperate hope that sending the astronauts to find and populate other planets will be successful alongside the recognition that this is the last hope. Finally, Part 3 is when the astronauts realize that it is just one big cycle, and recognize that unless humanity can change it will happen all over again.

    Kinda like the theory of exogenisis (the hypothesis that life originated elsewhere in the universe and was spread to Earth) but in reverse.
    And don't try and fit them to twilight, just no!

    It's imposible to know for sure what a person means while writing anything, the mind's a universe and, actually, i think this what this songs are about: it's all in its title: Exogenesis.
    The exogenesis is an hypothesis that proposes life on Earth was transferred from elsewhere in the Universe (research about "Panspermia" if you're interested ;) ).
    This symphony's pure philosophy, just try to answer the questions in part I: who are we? where are we? when are we? why?
    And, then, listen to United States of Eurasia and you'll notice this new album's full of political content =D. It critizices the cause of contemporary politics and history taking the name "Eurasia" and main idea from George Orwell's book "1984".
    So, put altogether this ideas and you'll get closer to the "meaning" of this music.

    Some reviews say these symphonies are self indulgent - I view it quite the opposite! While listening to these last three songs on the Resistance album I felt that I was going back in time experiencing a great composition of music but with a futuristic feel. I totally dig this kind of stuff and it's hard to find people who feel the same way, and can relate to it as I do. ;) Luv it!

    The lyrics to part 3 hold many different meanings to me, on being of the theory of exogenesis, another from its meaning from the book the album is based on. And another meaning it personally holds to me is one of the mistakes people often make, in relationships, be them romantic relationships, family relationships, friendships or whatnot, or just in life. The way in which it says 'Why can't we start it over again?' Could be a mistake that's gone on, for example in a relationship, if someone cheats and they ask for redemption, or if the victim asks for everything to start over again because we could 'get it right'.
    Another meaning it holds to me is the feeling most people get of wanting to go back and start over, do their educational life differently, get a good job, have a good life, wanting to redeem themselves, get the life they threw away.

    and for Untied states Of Eurasia that is party about Matt Bellamy's hatred of how the world relies on America and that if Europe and Asia were to be together they could over through America for world dominance however it is also about the novel 1984 witch Matt was reading while writing The Resistance.
