Muse “Revolt” Lyrics

How did we get in so much trouble
Getting out just seems impossible
Oppression is persisting
I can’t fight this brain conditioning
Our freedom’s just a loan
Run by machines and drones
They’ve got us locked into their sights
Soon, they’ll control what’s left inside
Don’t try to hide it
Don’t tell me it’s not there

You’ve got strength, you’ve got soul
You’ve felt pain, you’ve felt love
You can grow (you can grow), you can grow (you can grow)
You can make this world what you want
You can revolt
You can revolt
You can revolt

Can you hear a distant thunder
Taste earth’s blood and hunger
We live in a toxic jungle
Truth is suppressed to mumbles
They’ll take away our homes
They’re just machines and drones
Don’t try to fight it
Don’t tell me you can’t see

You’ve got strength, you’ve got soul
You’ve felt pain, you’ve felt love
You can grow (you can grow), you can grow (you can grow)
You can make this world what you want
You can revolt
You can revolt
You can revolt

I can feel your pain
I can feel your confusion
I can see you’re trapped in a maze
Let’s find a way to escape

You’ve got strength, you’ve got soul
You’re not afraid, you’re not a drone
You can grow (you can grow), you can grow (you can grow)
You can make this world what you want
You can revolt
You can revolt
You can revolt

Earlier this year, British rock band Muse released one of 2015’s best rock albums with Drones. The concept album focused on a futuristic society that was controlled by government drones, and how the album’s main character defected. Above, you can get a sense of the album’s theme by watching the music video for “Revolt.”

Set in the year 2025, the wartime music video was filmed in Prague and directed by Guy Shelmerdine. We see a large mass of people revolting to gain their freedom by clashing with military personnel and drones. Muse explained on their official website that they “wanted the video in black and white only using color to represent revolution.”

The video can be experienced in virtual reality by downloading the VRSE app. Unfortunately, the fisheye lens they used to shoot the video distorts the picture and doesn’t translate that great to most normal computer screens.

Previously, Muse have shared videos for “JFK + Defector,” “Reapers,” “Mercy,” “Dead Inside,” and “Psycho.”

Pick up Drones on Amazon (Vinyl, CD, MP3). You can also stream the full album and read our review here on Zumic.

Later this month, Muse will be hitting the road in support of their new album. The Drones World Tour will bring the album to life, with a 360-degree stage experience and sixteen drones that will fly around arenas all over the world.
