Lyrics

Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh

Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh

Come ride with me
Through the veins of history
I’ll show you how god
Falls asleep on the job

And how can we win
When fools can be kings
Don’t waste your time
Or time will waste you

Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh

Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh

No one’s gonna take me alive
Time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No one’s gonna take me alive
Time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No one’s going to take me alive
Time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

Knights of Cydonia – Muse – Meaning

 

  Come ride with me
Through the veins of history
I’ll show you how god
Falls asleep on the job 

If we look to the history of humans, we can see to a long list of tragedies and carnage.

Some of this tragedies, come from the nature and the way we live our planet earth.

Others tragedies instead, depend directly from ourselves.

Our actions can create the world that we live.

But the violence and the brutal way in which we act one against the others, make of the men a specie that can kills himself only to gain power over others.

Matt Bellamy here says that God completely fails to protect the people from the bad things that happen in to this world.

Looking back in the history of the men, there is some moments in which the humans lost completely a clear vision of what they do in that moment.

 

 And how can we win
When fools can be kings
Don’t waste your time
Or time will waste you 

Is possible to win for all of us?

Like humans?

What’s the win?

The peace and a place where we live together.

Only a shared view of the meaning of our life, and of the ultimate goal can save us.

It seems easy to say. And to understand.

Everytime someone talks of this type of things, all seems simple.

The decision seem obvious.

Then, why we choose the worst leaders?

Yes, not always.

But a lot of times in the history of men, the earth must defend himself, from some fool that starts to get power.

A power, that us like humans, we give to him.

There are some times in the history where we are not capable to choice our leaders.

 

And at the end of all we must die.

Everyone of us must die.

The only thing that really matters is one.

How do you use the time that you have?

Do something noteworthy or you are wasting your time?

If you waste your time, nobody will remember you.

And your life will pass without any form of legacy.

This is the way the time will waste you.

 

 No one’s gonna take me alive
Time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive 

Our lifes, and the quality of our lifes depend from us and our actions.

We can give the responsabilities to the environment, the governments, our family, our friends and lot of others bad things that happen in our life.

All apologies.

We are the actors of our life.

And we are the directors too.

If something go wrong, nobody will save us.

Our life depend from us.

Is our responsability to get the right quality of our life.

 

But this is not free.

Nobody will give to you that for free.

You will must fight for your rights.

You will must fight to survive and maybe for a better life.

 

Conclusion
