The wavelength gently grows,
Coercive notions re-evolve,
A universe is trapped inside a tear,
It resonates the core,
Creates unnatural laws,
Replaces love and happiness with fear

How much deception can you take?
How many lies will you create?
How much longer until you break?
Your mind's about to fall

And they are breaking through,
They are breaking through,
Now we're falling,
We are losing control

Invisible to all,
The mind becomes a wall.
All of history deleted with one stroke

How much deception can you take?
How many lies will you create?
How much longer until you break?
Your mind's about to fall

And they are breaking through,
They are breaking through,
Now we're falling,
We are losing control

    nicely done. and rather polite considering the actual procedures. but a nice artistic way to put the torture based mind control our governments have and do practice upon us.

    The wikipedia starts wiv: "Project MK-ULTRA, or MKULTRA, was the code name for a covert CIA mind-control and chemical interrogation research program". Basically, all muse fans have to read 1984 by George Orwell to properly understand this album!!!

    I think this song is a double entendre - playing on the obvious reference to the cia's project mkultra and the way people are brainwashed today through media. It may also be referencing some cases of political propaganda which arose out of the cold war particuarly, along with project mkultra.
    The song raises the question of freedom and control over ones own life, and how clear our perception and judgement really is of the world around us when coloured by second and third hand sources. How much do we really verify, or witness first hand?

    MK Ultra-type subprojects have continued well into the present. Some of us unlucky enough to have the "organized stalking and electronic harassment" problem were initially targeted during the MK Ultra period. Not alll the projects are as exotic as Candy Jones or even include ritual satanic abuse - but they are most definitely trauma based and include constant harassment and goading, death threats (in the overt phase), vandalism, intellectual property theft, etc as well as electronic harassment (EH). EH can refer to directed energy weapons (like being woken up at the same time every night and getting an electroshock), acoustic bullets (like someone beat up your head, also used for rape), and microwaves. Sound exotic? Check out policeone or any other number of websites to find out what your local police are stocking up with. (Not that I'm saying it's the police behind it - clearly it has the markings of intel and defense contractors.) This song is timely.

    I believe it means that government is finding ways into our minds through how we react to changes they press, and the more they control us, the more power we think we recieve as they give us the power to vote etcetera, but we are really losing rights and we don't realize it.
