Is our secret safe tonight
And are we out of sight
Will our world come tumbling down?
Will they find our hiding place
Is this our last embrace
Or will the world stop caving in?

It could be wrong
Could be wrong
But it should've been right
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
To let our hearts ignite
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
Are we digging a hole
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
This is out of control
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
It can never last
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
Must erase it fast
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
But it could've been right
It could be wrong could be

Love is our resistance
They'll keep us apart they wont stop breaking us down
Hold me
Our lips must always be sealed

If we live our life in fear
I'll wait a thousand years
Just to see you smile again
Kill the prayers for love and peace
You'll wake the thought police
We can't hide the truth inside

It could be wrong
Could be wrong
But it should've been right
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
To let our hearts ignite
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
Are we digging a hole
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
This is out of control
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
It can never last
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
Must erase it fast
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
But it could've been right
It could be wrong could be

Love is our resistance
They'll keep us apart they wont stop breaking us down
Hold me
Our lips must always be sealed

The night has reached it's end
We can't pretend
We must run
We must run
It's time to run

Take us away from here
Protect us from further harm
RESISTANCE...

    The song is an allegory to George Orwell's novel 1984. The two people who this song is written about is Julia and Winston. They are in love in a world where love doesn't exist and thought police monitor your inner most thoughts from outward perspectives. They are speaking of their secret rendezvous where they truly feel alive. The final stanza is the catharsis to where Winston is forced to betray his love to Julia. Read the book and you will see the resemblance.

    Digogo is just an unschooled brat. It's absolutely an influence (if not the actual inspiration) of orwell. Matt's a little genious. If you really think he just made a cute love song you should really wake up and start to find the deeper meanings of everything you think is cute. This is what I call in my country intervention music.
    The last revolution of the 20th century in europe literaly started with a song called "grandola vila morena". When this banned song played on the radio, everyone went to the streets and took down the regime.

    A direct reference to george orwell's "1984". The direct reference to the thought police, the secret hiding place, winston and julia's last embrace. They wait for a thousand years for the regime of big brother to fall, and they try to hide the truth inside. Winston's faith in o'brien to protect him in the ministry of love, when he is the one who tortures him, and who decides when to let him go. Impeccable!

    I've read Orwell's 1984 several times, and this is one heck of a killer song, I don't knock it at all. (I don't even like modern music, usually.)
    Yet, somehow, when I realized that it was so heavily linked to the book, it actually lost a little for me.
    Really, the first verse is what gripped me the most- that musical picture just grabbed me a pulled me straight in.
    Heh. Now I want to write an equivalently awesome song that focuses on the moment portrayed in the first verse. Unfortunately, I'm not that awesome.

    This song is defenetly inspired from the novel george orwell 1984, in fact the whole album is. The navel releases the idea of negative utopia and the album title resistance has a major meaning here. The album logo is represented by various colours which translate the opposite state presented in the novel. The whole album repeats this idea, mk Ultra, Uprising, Resistance are 3 obvious proofs. The songs areall meaningfull unlike other songs, that's why muse are amazing. Until now I didn't find any muse song presenting superficial issues. Love you muse! Hope you come to Lebanon soon, you have lots of fans here!
