While watching the super talented Kawehi do a cover of Muse’s Uprising (it starts at 4:42 in, she plays all the parts live, and loops them), I was reminded of how timely this 5 year old Muse song is, especially today.

Here are the lyrics:

The paranoia is in bloom
The P.R. transmissions will resume
They’ll try to push drugs to keep us all dumbed down
And hope that we will never see the truth around

Another promise, another seed, another
Packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed with all the
Green belts wrapped around our minds and endless
Red tape to keep the truth confined

They will not force us
And they will stop degrading us
And they will not control us
We will be victorious

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

Rise up and take the power back
It’s time 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

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Here is another Kawehi video to show her talents:
