Sunday Song Lyric

Glenn Beck likes Muse.  He’ s hardly alone, given the award-winning British Altrock band’s growing popularity in the U.S.  While most other Muse fans may be drawn in by the music, Beck likes the lyrics.  “These guys are brilliant, they know the time that we live in,” he said during a September broadcast. “All of the lyrics are… dead on, on what’s coming our way.”   After Beck praised the band and read their lyrics on his radio show, a Muse representative contacted the program seeking a retraction — or so Beck said.  The Telegraph reports it was all a joke.  In any event, looking at the lyrics from the band’s hit single, “Uprising,” it’s easy to see what Beck likes.

The paranoia is in bloom,
The PR transmissions will resume,
They’ll try to push drugs to keep us all dumbed down,
And hope that we will never see the truth around,
So come on!

Another promise, another seed,
Another packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed,
With all the green belts wrapped around our minds,
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined,
So come on!

They will not force us,
They will stop degrading us,
They will not control us,
And we will be victorious!
So come on!

Here are the full lyrics, the video, and a live performance. [UPDATE: That live clip is no longer available on youTube, so here are two more: 1, 2.]  And here are the lyrics to “United States of Eurasia,” another tune that apparently caught Beck’s fancy.
