Muse – Exogenesis: Symphony Part III lyrics

Let's start over again
Why can't we start it over again?

Just let us start it over again

And we'll be good
This time we'll get it...
Get it right

It's our last chance to forgive ourselves

    It's imposible to know for sure what a person means while writing anything, the mind's a universe and, actually, I think this what this songs are about: it's all in its title: Exogenesis.
    The exogenesis is an hypothesis that proposes life on Earth was transferred from elsewhere in the Universe (research about "Panspermia" if you're interested ;)).
    This symphony's pure philosophy, just try to answer the questions in part I: who are we? Where are we? When are we? Why?
    And, then, listen to United States of Eurasia and you'll notice this new album's full of political content =D. It critizices the cause of contemporary politics and history taking the name "Eurasia" and main idea from George Orwell's book "1984".
    So, put altogether this ideas and you'll get closer to the "meaning" of this music.
    Sia! Sia! Sia!

    Some reviews say these symphonies are self indulgent - I view it quite the opposite! While listening to these last three songs on the Resistance album I felt that I was going back in time experiencing a great composition of music but with a futuristic feel. I totally dig this kind of stuff and it's hard to find people who feel the same way, and can relate to it as I do. ;) love it!

    The whol resistance album is based on george orwell's 1984, so you should read the book. Part 1 is jusy generally about the party, oppression, reasons to rebel etc. Part 2 is about how the ability to overthrow the party lies with the extensive lower class called the proletarians, and part 3 is after the main character winston and his (ex)lover julia have been effectively brainwashed into loving the party, big brother and the orthodoxical views of both. They are going to be killed, but are asking to be forgiven. Basics.

    Part 1 could be about Exogenisis I don't know about that but 2 seems to be about the astronauts but the third I see as the just looking over humanity's dark and destructive history and thinking that the world and the human race will never work if we continue to be so aggressive and violent and have wars and so on and its as if they are begging to start over again and promising that if they can they will get it right and make themselves as a race peaceful and try to create rather than destroy because truly that is what everyone wants. To live in a perfect society a utopia almost a place where no one is ever in danger or unsafe and everything is good with no pollution war or even violence and I believe that is what the third part is about because to me that makes sense.

    It is a story of humanity coming to an end and everyone pinning their hopes on a group of astronauts who go out to explore space and spread humanity to another planet. Part 1 is a jaded acceptance that civilization will end. Part 2 is a desperate hope that sending the astronauts to find and populate other planets will be successful alongside the recognition that this is the last hope. Finally, Part 3 is when the astronauts realize that it is just one big cycle, and recognize that unless humanity can change it will happen all over again.
    Kinda like the theory of exogenisis (the hypothesis that life originated elsewhere in the universe and was spread to Earth) but in reverse.
    And don't try and fit them to twilight, just no!
