The 1st single from Muse’s newest album (will be released in September), Resistance, is called United State of Eurosia. It is a great epic song.
I finally had time to figure out the words, once again the genius Mr. Matthew Bellamy (I assume it was Matt who wrote the lyric) wrote incredible lyric. After writing it down I can see clearly what he is trying to say through this song. He was saying let’s become one, let’s create a country that can hold every country as one.
It was beautifully written, here are the lyrics:
United State of Eurosia
You and me are the same
We don’t know or care whose to blame
But we know that who ever hold the winds
Nothing will change
Our course has gone insane
And these walls they can be one 2x
Do you want them to go on and on and on
Why split these states
When they can be only one
And must we do as we told 2x
And these walls they can be one
Does anyone know or care how they begun
They just promise to go on and on and on
But soon we will se that can be only one
United State of…..Eurasia
You and me fall in line
To be punished for unproven crime
And we know that there’s no one we can trust
And our ancient heroes they are turning to dust
As for the music, everyone can easily recognized how it is deeply influenced by The great QUEEN…I don’t know music note so forgive me if I make a wrong interpretation.
In my ear as a non musician, although it sounds like Queen but some parts remind me of Khasmir by Led Zeppelin. It has a thick essence of 70s and 80s kind of rock.
Muse closed the song with a solo piano that sounds like choppin style. It sounds beautiful.Arabic sounds mixed with Church Choir and closed with Choppin, what an amazing combination!!!
This song had made me more and more eager to hear the whole album. I wonder how the symphony would sound.
