Supremacy Lyrics

Play "Supremacy"
on Amazon Music

wake to see
your true emancipation is a fantasy
policies have risen up and overcome the brave
greatness dies
unsung and lost, invisible to history
embedded spies
brainwashing our children to be mean
you don't have long
I am on to you

    Could this song be a reference to George Orwell's 1984? I know the book was an inspiration for some other Muse songs. 'Brainwashing our children to be mean...' That sounds like the Spies...

    I see this song as perhaps a sequel to one of his songs about society resisting against oppressors (I had in mind Uprising.) 'They' are the oppressors, as in Uprising. In Uprising, however, it is clear that 'they' refers to a form of government controlling a society almost in a totalitarian way.

    The song's meaning? Matt is addressing 'them' in this song, almost like how Thomas Jefferson addressed King George III with the D.o.I. and state his wrongdoings and how America planned to form a revolution. Matt's lines are stating 'their' wrongdoings, portraying that he knows what they're doing, and finishes it off with telling 'them' that they will pay.
