Race
Life's a race
But I'm gonna win
Yes, I'm gonna win
And I'll light the fuse
And I'll never lose
And I choose to survive
Whatever it takes
You won't pull ahead
I'll keep up the pace
And I'll reveal my strength
To the whole human race
Yes, I am prepared
To stay alive
I won't forgive
Vengeance is mine
And I won't give in
Because I choose to fight
Yeah, we're gonna win

Race
It's a race
But I'm gonna win
Yes, I'm gonna win
And I'll light the fuse
And I'll never lose
And I choose to survive
Whatever it takes
You won't pull ahead
I'll keep up the pace
And I'll reveal my strength
To the whole human race
Yes, I'm gonna win
Yes, I'm gonna win

    Epic... I think he is singing about the future, when society becomes a deadly race that he has unwillingly become a participant in, and has learnt to love it. He has become hungry for victory. He has become consumed by the greed, he needs to win.

    Weird comments... I don't see the connection between dark, cult, satan and anything else that has been mentioned from the comments except from mused with the song...

    This is muse's official olympic song - however it sounds a bit like someone trying to escape from a dark and ominous cult. If you listen to it - i don't think you could imagine matt b running down the racetrack of london 2012...

    It sounds as though satan is having his day... And that thousands upon thousands of people will be chanting this over and over and thus creating a black mass without even being aware of it... Be careful of lyrics to music these days, you maybe participating in a dark ritual and not even know it.
