Muse – Assassin lyrics

War is overdue
The time has come for you
To shoot your leaders down
Join forces underground

Lose control
In increasing pace
Warped and bewitched
A time to erase
Whatever they say
These people are torn
Wild and bereft
Assassin is born (yeah)

Appose and disagree
Destroy Demonocracy

Lose control
In increasing pace
Warped and bewitched
A time to erase
Whatever they say
These people are torn
Wild and bereft
Assassin is born (yeah)

    The lyrics 'The time has come for you, to shoot your leaders down, join forces underground' is in relation to a terrorist although Matthew Bellamy (singer) did not wish to use the word terrorist due to its bluntness and the way the protagonist of terrorist didn't the classic model of 'terrorism. '
    The song is about finding the strength to tackle the worlds problems and 'assassins' our entreaty to destroy democracy.
