Take heart from Muse's hit (and a bonus track updating the Eagles' "Hotel California")
A couple of years ago when I first started going to protests here in New York City and getting on the subway without a mask I used to play uprising through my earphones to give me energy to get through this hell!
Thank you for posting Hotel Paranoia, Mark, here are the lyrics written out:
On the great reset highway, fools’ words in my ear
Warm smell of infection, rising up through the fear
Up ahead in the future, I saw a frightening sight
My health grew heavy and my rights grew dim
I got locked down for the night
“Show passports at the doorway,”
I heard the armed guards tell
And I was thinking to myself,
“This could be Heaven or this could be Hell”
Then they brought out the needles and they boosted away
There were voices from the monitor,
I thought I heard them say…
Welcome to the Hotel Paranoia
Such an ugly place (Such an ugly place)
So just mask your face
Plenty of doom at the Hotel Paranoia
Any kind of fear (Any kind of fear)
You can find it here
The news is definitely twisted toward propagandic ends
They got a lot of pretty newsman boys they call friends
How they lie in the courthouse, hyping the threat.
Some lie to remember, some lie to forget
So I called up the doctor,
“Please help me feel fine”
He said, “We haven’t showed that spirit here since nineteen twenty nine”
And so our choice is falling so far away,
Taken out in the middle of the night
Then you hear them say…
The living will die at the Hotel Paranoia
What a big surprise (not a nice surprise)
Right before your eyes.
Fear’s up to the ceiling,
They keep vaccine on ice
“Sure,” we said, “we are all just listeners here, on our own device”
And in Big Pharma’s boardrooms,
They gathered for the feast
They profit from our sickly lives
And they just can’t care the least
Last thing I remember, I was
Lying on the floor
I couldn’t get the message back
To the way it was before
“React,” said the fright man,
“We are programmed to deceive.
You can fact check any time you like,
But you will not believe.”
This is how we do it...
I remember when Occupy started. A little crowd of us types went marching around in my small town... "This is what Democracy looks like!" Shouted by one and then same by everybody else, so we could have it in a paced march...
The other morning when I went walking, I was doing this saying "This is how we do it!" And hearing the answering same in my head, and imagining marching again, millions of us, all over the USA, and Canada, and Australia, and New Zealand, and Germany, and Sri Lanka, and France, and England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales, and Italy... ALL OVER THE WORLD.
When anyone asks me now, "But how can we fight this thing, they are so powerful, etc etc, I say this: "THIS IS HOW WE DO IT..." To really understand, we have to be LIVE, in PERSON, and SHOW UP and DO IT. And we get up, and we get in the street, and we fill the street, and walk it, and dance it, and shout it, and sing it, and whisper it, by the hundreds, by the thousands, by the MILLIONS. And we have drummers in there, and some cow bells, all kindza noise, and our VOICES...
Just like that, and you know, it will bring the rest, whatever we need, like a kind of prayer, like a wonderful human magnet. And we WILL WIN BACK OUR SOVEREIGNTY. Yes, we will! And...
THIS IS HOW WE DO IT!
Muse UPRISING is great! I think I used the lyrics in some sort of "binding thing" If I find it I'll post link in case anyone's interested. Can't believe that song was 2009? Yikes I'm old...
Muse's recent song "Compliance" is another accurate and perfect description of the past few years: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QP3zRBtgvJo
Yes!! Muse rocks that song, one of my favorites.
Dr Miller you constantly surprise me with your broad range of musical interests, from progressive metal to the folk songs that you yourself wrote.
Another favorite I've been listening to recently is What's Going On by 4 Non Blondes. Amazingly, the same band who was warning us about the world being run by a "brotherhood of men", and now they are shilling for Fauci & the cabal, doing benefit concerts for vaccines. Oh well, the song inspires me in a different way now - now it's an anthem to how people can become brainwashed if they're not vigilant. We now know what's going on, it's called propaganda:
Check out Pennywise “F@ck Authority. The lyrics are spot on. Ironically, the music video on YouTube is the censored version.
This is why we are being exterminated:
Armenia as well. Yerevan, citizens are trying to storm government buildings. While the security forces are coping with the onslaught of civilians.
"They will not be able to walk the streets"
Also Twisted Sister We’re Not Gonna Take It” And Depeche Mode “Revolution” … good stuff for these times
Van Morrison's new album is a must listen to also! What's It Gonna Take?
And don't forget about Muse's new tracks! Will of the People is the 2022 version of Uprising: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MClg7zpm6VQ
Awesome! 2009! How did I miss that?? Thanks!
americans will soon trade their guns for food water shelteer to the glo baal pshycos, they will be divided and conquered.... dear good god please guide and help us fight evil
I really love Muse.
Great songs! I especially love hotel paranoia.
Lol I jam uprising and put all the windows down whenever I hear it on the radio. Last time was in a long line of cars at school dropping off the kiddos
I’ve been blasting this Muse tune otw to work for the last year🤣. The message is 💯.
