Muse – Unnatural Selection lyrics

They'll laugh as they watch us fall,
The lucky don't care at all,
No chance for fate,
It's unnatural selection,
I want the truth

I am hungry for some unrest,
I want to push this beyond a peaceful protest,
I wanna speak in a language that they'll understand

Dedication to a new age,
Is this the end of destruction and rampage?
Another chance to erase it then repeat it again

Counterbalance this commotion,
We're not droplets in the ocean, ocean

They'll laugh as they watch us fall,
The lucky don't care at all,
No chance for fate,
It's unnatural selection,
I want the truth

No religion or mind virus,
Is there a hope that the facts will ever find us,
Just make sure that you are looking out for number 1

I am hungry for some unrest,
Let's push this beyond a peaceful protest,
I wanna speak in a language that you will understand

Counterbalance this commotion,
We're not droplets in the ocean, We're the
Ocean

They'll laugh as they watch us crawl,
The lucky don't share at all,
No hope for fate, it's a random chance selection,
I want the truth

Try to ride out the storm,
Whilst they'll make you believe, that they are the special ones, (we have not been chosen),
Injustice is the norm,
You won't be the first and you know you won't be the last

Counterbalance this commotion,
We're not droplets in the ocean, We're the
Ocean, ocean, ocean

They'll laugh as they watch us fall,
Unlucky, they don't care at all,
No chance for fate,
It's unnatural selection,
I want the truth,
I want the truth,
I want the truth,
I want the truth

    In my opinion.
    This song is about religion.
    Unnatural selection is meant like many religios people don't believe in natural selection because god created them (in their opinion) but that makes their selection/beliefes unnatural. Thei also prevent people from finding the truth about life by answering every asked question with god.
    The song says that there are many more atheist who are just afraid of "coming out" than you would think (we're not droplets in the ocean).
    "they are the special ones - we have not been chosen" is meant like they say that they are choosen from god and go to paradise but we won't
    The massage of this song is "tell religion how unnecessary it is now"

    First off, great tune. It's infectious! But the lyrics are crap. Basically it's the loser's anthem, whining about "injustice". What's really funny is the guy who wrote the lyrics would be considered one of the "lucky ones" (forget the fact that he had the ambition and drive to make something of himself) and he's inciting riot against himself. I'd put up my take on the lyrics in detail, but I don't think there's room for it here. Not all of the "haves" are sadists, many of the wealthiest are philanthropists. There's nothing "unnatural" about the selection in question. The writer gets it right once and it's only mentioned in passing - the selection is random, but that doesn't make it unfair. Instead of whining, why not do your best to be your best. You might find out that you're "luckier" than you think.

    Along with most of the songs in the album, this song is all about the powerful ones who control the economic system, petroleum, wars, and even countries and who uses religion and media to prevent people to see the truth. It is an open call for protesting the bunch of people (number 1) who nearly has more than %90 of the wealth in the world and doesn't want to lose control nor share the wealth. But "They will not control us. We will be victorious!".

    I think this song is more about the rich and there greed and being basically born with the fate of becoming rich, I think hes saying the rich are greedy " the lucky don't share at all" when matt references to the.
    "lucky" I think hes meaning the lucky few that were born with the fate to become rich " make sure you look out for number 1 " alot of the times the rich are considered "the elite" so I think he means by number 1 he is referring to the rich people. The.

    With regards to the interpretaion of this song as critical of capitalist society: this song is not a song of the losers its a song of the realists, those of us who are prepared to admit that the world we live in doesn't encourage equality. If you come from a lower income your more likely to end up in jail, if your born in the third world your not going ot be the ceo of a major company. It doesn't mean you shouldn't try but to not acknowledge the world we're in creates bubbles of sheltered people whose mode of thought is shaped by their guilded surrounding is ridiculous, that is what is meant by "unnatural" the success of people which is based slightly in luck but more often in privilege. Its a fact which sadly rings true of all societies and this song probably isn't for everyone but I think that makes muse brave, honest and immune to the ignorance of some.
