Musings on the Future

March 2, 2011 Leave a comment

“Flick a switch and open your third eye…”  You are the resistance.

A few days ago, a friend sent me a YouTube  link to the music video, ” Uprising”, by a new British rock group that calls itself, “Muse”.  Wisely, he also sent the lyrics.  Otherwise, I would have suffered through the anguish of inventing a story of how I accidentally deleted the email.  My view of modern pop music is complexioned by the prevalent collapse of culture hastened by the likes of Justin Beiber and Lady Gaga.

Corporate media is churning out the dialectic of seeking the lowest common denominator with a twist.  Daily we are flicker rate programmed with art that encourages the self loathing of humanity and the adoration of death.

Just when I think there is no hope, along come young folks like Muse.  In the revolution to overthrow the New World Order the burden will be on the backs of youth.  They hold the key.  Upon reading the lyrics, my faith in a better future is restored:

The paranoia is in bloom, the PR
Transmissions will resume, they’ll try to
Push drugs, keep us all dumb down and hope that
We will never see the truth around, so come on

Another promise, another scene, another
Package not 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
And they will stop degrading us
And they will not control us
We will be victorious, so come on

Interchanging mind control, come let the
Revolution take its toll, if you could
Flick a switch and open your third eye, you’d see that
We should never be afraid to die, so come on

Rise up and take the power back, it’s time that
The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that
Their time is coming to an end, we have to
Unify and watch our flag ascend, so come on

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious, so come on

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious, so come on

Hey, hey, hey, hey

An attractive tune, the visual plot that accompanies it is somewhat bizarre.  Regardless, these guys are great musicians and I think they definitely get it – a blend of spirituality, freedom of thought, and real hope.

The song exudes determination.  Let that determination be focused and fully aware of the mistakes of history.  Let the third eye open to discern lies from truth – to know the difference between hollow, ego-centered, opportunism and genuine love for humanity demonstrated by patriotism that desires no reward.
