Muse – Resistance lyrics

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.

    I love this song. I do think its about forbidden love. Two people in a relationship and maybe people don't want them together?, and the only resistance they have is "love". This is one of my favorite songs from muse, but then again all of muse's songs are my favorite,. This song is amazing, because love is everyones resistnce. And I hate how some muse songs are in the twilight saga's soundtrack. I like being the only one knowing about them:(altho I do recommend for people to listen to em. Great song and muse is amazing!
