Muse – United States Of Eurasia lyrics

You and me are the same
We don't know or care who's to blame
But we know that whoever holds the reins
Nothing will change
Our cause has gone insane

And these wars, they can't be won
And these wars, they can't be won

And do you want them to go on
And on and on
Why split these states
When there can be only one?

And must we do as we're told?
Must we do as we're told

You and me fall in line
To be punished for unproven crimes!
we know that there is no one we can trust;
Our ancient heroes, they are turning to dust!

And these wars, they can't be won
Does anyone know or care how they begun
They just promise to go on
And on and on
But soon we will see
There can be only one

United States!
United States!

... Sia!
... Sia!
... Sia!

... Sia!
... Sia!
... Sia!

... Sia!
... Sia!
... Sia!

    This song --for anyone who hasn't realized-- is directly about 1984. A book by George Orwell.
    In it has three super states (Oceania, eurasia, and Eastasia) who are constantly at war in order for the leaders of these states to be forever controlled. Its all about power and brainwashing. George Orwell lived in the ages of the Great Wars where most of it is influenced by Stalin.
    In the book they are ruled over by Big Brother(the figure head). Thier entire lives are restricted and watched.
    This song is without a doubt, 100% 1984. Seriously. Not that's a bad thing but its just annoying to see people thinking its about Bush or Obama and how Muse made such deep lines when these are direct quotes from the Book. Go read it.

    I do believe that echoes of Queen are heard here for a reason. It is both homage and metephorical. Symbolising uk's stance in Europe. We are one human race. But its our sublte differences and nuances that make us stand apart. For example the uk is so far apart from Turkey is another world entirely.(without going into the whole eu issue thing)United States of Eurasia is a definate possibilty of or future. Do we want that? Please don't let thought police punish me, and I hope I translated properly.

    Political stuff or not, it hits me like a baseball bat, am smacked round the head. Lol It's Brilliant! And it's the new bohemian tragedy.
    Beautiful and idealistic, as a child and still now didn't understand the meaning of borders, why all the plitting up?
    It's a geoism thing aswell, human, idealistic and geological, the combination with Chopin is natural. Hmm. I love it, when will they write their first opera?

    I believe it's all about the ruling families of the world (you may call'em the inner circle of 10 of the Bildelberg group), that want to become "a brave new world" a reality, us beeing the working underlings of that society, and them the ruling dinasty forcing peace thru power and thru indoctrinated lies in the early years of ev'ry labor ant of us. But don't believe me, Investigate it for yourself (zeitgeist, end game: world slavery plan, Ron Paul, matrix project, shock doctrine, club bildelberg), chose carefully the truth between the lies, and Enjoy. B proactive.

    isn't USA Oceania?
    because it is the once free countries that have the 1984 revolution to take down liberty
    idk maybe it's because muse is more popular in europe so they say eurasia :/
    but srsly although muse had sold out to the powers that be after the olympcs
    I believe they still have considerable of intention to make people see the conspiracy (don't tell me that conspiracy don't exist you peasants,you deserve to be slaves if you can't see the manipulation in media that shows massive conspiratory collusion)
