Police State Symbolism in Muse’s Madness

Enjoying a hilton

Hi hi hi there my brothers and only friends. This is an interesting video by the rock band Muse. The video starts out with two models enjoying a hilton in the tube.

Rioters Tube

The peace of the young lovers is disturbed, however, by rioters who come down the moving stairs.

Police Tube

The police follow the rioters down the tube. Let’s listen to the lyrics:

“Madness”

(Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma…)

I, I can’t get these memories out of my mind,
And some kind of madness has started to evolve.
(Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma…)
I, I tried so hard to let you go,
But some kind of madness is swallowing me whole, yeah
(Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma…)

I have finally seen the light,

2012: Matt Bellamy: ‘I’m No Longer A 9/11 Conspiracy Theorist’

And I have finally realized
What you mean.

Ooh oh oh

And now I need to know is this real love,
Or is it just madness keeping us afloat?
(Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma…)
And when I look back at all the crazy fights we had,
Like some kind of madness was taking control, yeah
(Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma…)

And now I have finally seen the light,

Steak

2013 Kate Hudson and Matthew Bellamy at the Vanity Fair Brit Awards Party. Brit Trophy & a Trophy Girl!

And I have finally realized
What you need.

Mmmm…

(Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma…)

And now I have finally seen the end (finally seen the end)
And I’m not expecting you to care (expecting you to care)

Muse

But I have finally seen the light (finally seen the light)
I have finally realized (realized)
I need to love
I need to love

Come to me
Just in a dream.
Come on and rescue me.
Yes I know, I can be wrong,
Maybe I’m too headstrong.
Our love is
(Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma…)
Madness

Rioters Molotov

The rioters are preparing molotov cocktails.

Police Water Cannon

The Police prepare the water cannon.

The video ends with the lovers enjoying their fags in the tube while the police restore order. What does Matt Bellamy foresee in Britain’s future? Will there be anarchy in the UK? Or will Matt Bellamy and his trophy girlfriend keep enjoying the privileged life of the 1%? Bellamy no longer thinks 9/11 is an inside job now that he’s rich and famous. He’s been talking to Agent Smith. He’s been enjoying that steak and plugging himself back into the matrix. All it took was one Olympic performance for him to do a 180 degree turn.

I don’t know about you droog, but I’ve seen enough award shows for mediocre music. I’m for anarchy.

  1. Ah ha ha! @mattbellamy you’ve finally seen the light! 9/11 wasn’t an inside job. Those building collapsed because of fire. Any fool can see that. I’m glad you signed my contract Matt. You have the car, the woman, the house, everything but your soul.
