• Blockades

    Music & lyrics by Muse

    A very “Musian” track from their latest album Simulation Theory released in late November (actually borrowing the gimmick from "Knights Of Cydonia") and a title that fits perfectly our current circumstances in France. My apologies for the overdose of Muse songs lately: not my fault if Matt Bellamy is a visionary and seems on the same wavelength as me (watch out for feedback noise). Not sure though that rebelling against the outside is the best way if an inner transformation doesn't happen first. Otherwise, the same will happen again for brick by brick, as Pink Floyd sang, our denial — our refusal to take responsibility for our own power  is what builds those unseen walls that keep us trapped. Let's change our mindset and the walls will tumble down by themselves. It's actually the only way, as shown by all these centuries of wars, overthrowned puppets — and puppeteers still in power.

    Stop!
    I wanna go home,
    Take off this uniform
    And leave the show.
    And I'm waiting in this cell
    Because I have to know
    Have I been guilty all this time?

    ♫ "Stop", Pink Floyd (1979)

    Ey@el

    The truth is that when I am killing in order to survive,
    I have never felt so alive.
    I am always seeking to live and die on the edge,
    Life is a broken simulation I'm unable to feel.
    I'm searching for something that's real,
    I am always seeking to see what's behind the veil.
    Trapped in a maze of unseen walls,
    These blockades must fall.

    Crush, crush,
    Raze and rush.
    Seize, fight for your life.
    Smash, test,
    Beat the best.
    Fight for your life,
    You've been summoned now.

    I never sleep or rest,
    But I'm still running out of time.
    I have sacrificed all of my life,
    The time has come
    To prove to you what I'm worth.
    Trapped in a maze of unseen walls,
    These blockades must fall.

    Crush, crush,
    Raze and rush.
    Seize, fight for your life.
    Smash, test,
    Beat the best.
    Fight for your life,
    You've been summoned now.

    Crush, crush,
    Raze and rush.
    Seize, fight for your life.
    Smash, test,
    Beat the best.
    Fight for your life,
    You've been summoned now.
