Length: 54.20
Release Date: 2009
Record Label: Warner Brothers
Catalogue Number: 825646874347

Muse's fifth studio album, The Resistance, was released on September 14th 2009. Like previous Muse albums it draws from a wide range of genres and influences, including glam rock, R&amp;B, disco and classical. The Resistance sees the return of instrumentation previously used on Origin of Symmetry, including a church organ (Unnatural Selection) and llama toenails (United States of Eurasia).Matthew Bellamy summarised the album as having "an emphasis on rhythm and contemporary R&amp;B at the start. Then it gets epic and strange, then it becomes contemporary classical music."

The band won the Grammy for Best Rock Album with The Resistance in 2011.

  • Uprising Show

    Paranoia is in bloom,
    The PR transmissions will resume
    They'll try to, push drugs that keep us all dumbed down
    And hope that, we will never see the truth around
    (so come on)
    Another promise, another seed
    Another, packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed
    And all the, Green belts wrapped around our minds
    And endless, red tape to keep the truth confined
    (so come on)

    They will not force us
    They will stop degrading us
    They will not control us
    We will be victorious
    so come on

    Interchanging mind control
    Come let the, revolution takes its toll
    If you could, flick the switch and open your third eye
    You'd see that
    We should never be afraid to die
    (so come on)

    Rise up and take the power back
    It's time the fat cats had a heart attack
    They know that their time's 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 enslave us
    We will be victorious

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

  • Resistance Show

    Is our secret safe tonight
    and are we out of sight
    Or will our world come tumbling down?
    Will they find our hiding place
    is this our last embrace
    or will the walls start caving in?

    It could be wrong, could be wrong, but it should have been right
    It could be wrong, could be wrong, to let our hearts ignite
    It could be wrong, could be wrong, are we digging a hole?

    It could be wrong, could be wrong, this is out of control
    It could be wrong, could be wrong, it can never last
    It could be wrong, could be wrong, must erase it fast
    It could be wrong, could be wrong, but it should have been right
    It could be wrong could be....

    Love is our resistance
    They'll keep us apart and they wont to stop breaking us down
    Hold me
    our lips must always be sealed

    If we live a life in fear
    I'll wait a thousand years
    just to see you smile again

    Kill your prayers for love and peace
    You'll wake the thought police
    we can't hide the truth inside

    It could be wrong, could be wrong, but it should have been right
    It could be wrong, could be wrong, to let our hearts ignite
    It could be wrong, could be wrong, are we digging a hole?

    It could be wrong, could be wrong, this is out of control
    It could be wrong, could be wrong, it can never last
    It could be wrong, could be wrong, must erase it fast
    It could be wrong, could be wrong, but it should have been right
    It could be wrong could be....

    Love is our resistance
    They'll keep us apart and they wont to stop breaking us down
    Hold me
    our lips must always be sealed

    The night has reached it's end
    We can't pretend
    We must run       
    We must run
    Its time to run
    Take us away from here
    Protect us from further harm

  • Undisclosed Desires Show

    I know you've suffered
    But I don't want you to hide
    It's cold and loveless
    I won't let you be denied

    Soothing
    I'll make you feel pure
    Trust me
    You can be sure

    I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
    I want to recognise your beauty's not just a mask
    I want to exorcise the demons from your past
    I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

    You trick your lovers
    That you're wicked and divine
    You may be a sinner
    But your innocence is mine

    Please me
    Show me how it's done
    Tease me
    You are the one

    I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
    I want to recognise your beauty's not just a mask
    I want to exorcise the demons from your past
    I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

    Please me
    Show me how it's done
    Trust me
    You are the one

    I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
    I want to recognise your beauty's not just a mask
    I want to exorcise the demons from your past
    I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

     

  • United States Of Eurasia (+Collateral Damage) Show

    United States of Eurasia
    You and me are the same
    We don't know or care who's to blame
    But we know that whoever holds the reigns
    Nothing will change
    Our cause has gone insane
    And these wars they can't be won
    And these wars they can't be won
    Do you want them to go on and on and on?
    Why split these states
    When there can be only one
    And must we do as we're told?
    Must still do as we're told?
    You and me fall in line
    To be punished for unproven crimes
    And we know that there's no one we can trust
    Our ancient heroes
    They are turning to dust
    And these wars they can't be won
    Does anyone know or care how they begun?
    They just promise to go on and on and on
    But soon we will see
    There can be only one
    United States
    United States of Eurasia

     

  • Guiding Light Show

    Pure hearts stumble
    in my hands, they crumble
    Fragile and stripped to the core
    I can't hurt you anymore
    Loved by numbers
    you're losing life's wonder
    touch like strangers; detached
    I can't feel you anymore
    The sunshine trapped in our hearts
    it could rise again
    but i'm lost, crushed, cold and confused with no guiding light left inside

    you were my guiding light

    When comfort and warmth can't be found I still reach for you   
    but i'm lost, crushed, cold and confused with no guiding light left inside

    You're my guiding light
    You're my guiding light
    when there's no guiding light left inside
    when there's no guiding light in our lives

  • Unnatural Selection Show

    They'll laugh as they watch us fall
    The lucky don't care at all
    No chance for fate
    It's unnatural selection
    I want the truth

    I am hungry for some unrest
    I want to push this beyond a peaceful protest
    I wanna speak in a language that they'll understand

    Dedication, to a new age
    Is this the end of destruction and rampage?
    Another chance to erase then repeat it again

    Counter balance this commotion
    We're not droplets in the ocean

    They'll laugh as they watch us fall
    The lucky don't care at all
    No chance for fate
    It's unnatural selection
    I want the truth

    No religion or mind virus'
    Is there a hope that the facts will ever find us
    Just make sure that your are looking out for number 1

    I am hungry for an unrest
    Lets push this beyond a peaceful protest
    I wanna speak in a language that you will understand

    Counter balance this commotion
    We're not droplets in the ocean

    They'll laugh as they watch us crawl
    The lucky don't share at all
    No hope for fate, its a random chance selection 
    I want the truth

    Try to ride out the storm
    Whilst they'll make you believe,
    That they are the special ones, (we have not been chosen)

    Injustice is the norm
    You won't be the first and you know you won't be the last

    Counter balance this commotion
    We're not droplets in the ocean

    They'll laugh as they watch us fall
    The lucky don't care at all
    No chance for fate
    It's unnatural selection
    I want the truth, I want the truth
    I want the truth, I want the truth 

  • MK Ultra Show

    The wavelength gently grows
    Coercive notions re-evolve
    A universe is trapped inside a tear
    it resonates the core
    creates unnatural laws
    replaces love and happiness with fear

    how much deception can you take
    how many lies will you create
    how much longer until you break
    your mind's about to fall

    and they are breaking through
    they are breaking through
    they are breaking through
    we are losing control 

    they are breaking through
    they are breaking through
    they are breaking through
    now we are falling
    we are losing control 

    Invisible to all
    The mind becomes a wall
    All of history deleted with one stroke

    how much deception can you take
    how many lies will you create
    how much longer until you break
    your mind's about to fall

    and they are breaking through
    they are breaking through
    they are breaking through
    now we are falling
    we are losing control

    When these pillars get pulled down

    How much pain has cracked your soul?
    How much love would make you whole?

    I belong to you

    Then she attacks me like a Leo
    When my heart is split like Rio
    But, I assure you my debts are real

    I can't find the words to say
    When I'm confused
    I travelled half the world to say
    You are my mu-

    Aping my soul
    You stole my overture

    Breach the outer sphere
    The edge of all our fears

    Spread, our codes to the stars
    You must rescue us all

    Tell us, tell us your final wish?
    We will tell it to the world
