Hmmmm ...

You and me are the same
we don't know or care whose to blame
But we know that whoever holds the reins
Nothing will change our cause has gone insane

And these wars they can't be won
And these wars they can't be won
And do you...

    The song makes the connection between George Orwell's 1984 and the reality of the EU, 'ever closer union' and moving ever further away from democracy, as well as un-winnable wars in the middle east.

    Punished for unproven crimes? European arrest warrant - search for Andrew Symeou and Garry Mann, Michael Turner and Jason McGoldrick - for example.

    Watch the George Orwell movie 1984. In a nutshell, The song is about an extreme government that controls every aspect of the individual. Keeping them in fear by advocating constant war thus keeping control of the people. No one is free.

    Its about the European Union and how the EU is forcing countries to give up national sovereignty. I think that they are saying that we should return to local autonomy otherwise true communism.

    I think that it is talking about one world government. THe entire world being ruled by one power.

    This song was inspired by the book 1984, but the song's title and a few of the lines bring to mind the Soviet Union and the Cold War. ("You and me are the same / We don't know or care who's to blame")

    This song is about the future rather than the past.

    To further elaborate on my 1984 post above, since someone mentioned the verse about unproven crimes, this is referring to the Orwellian language that we are seeing more and more from the government and this line is an observation of that. It's an obvious allusion to the "thought police," from the book as well as "were all the same," meaning all people obviously from the superstates that are constantly at war. Wars that can never be "won," and wars that the powers that be have no intention of ending. It also goes on to say, not verbatim that there's no one we can trust and our ancient heroes are falling to dust. This Is pretty self explanatory, that we cannot trust the government and that the ancient heroes, those who stood up for democracy and the people are... "Falling to dust." as I said before Orwell was trying to warn us and now muse is reiterating the warning. Read the book if you haven't!! You'll see the connection immediately.

    No offense but I'm going to have to agree that this Is a poor interpretation and an surprised no one picked up on the fact that this song is completely Orwellian and is derivative of the book 1984. Seriously a classic and a staple in modern society as it's more timely than ever regarding the world climate, anyone who couldn't pick up on this needs to read the book immediately. The allusions to the one super state as well as the never ending wars are clearly meant to reestablish and reiterate the terrifying warnings of Orwell outlined in 1984 and their
    significance in today's world. This is also in concurrence with the band's overall theme and message, in "uprising," the resistance tour etc etc.

    This may be a little random but im listening to this song right now.I think that this song is perhaps about stopping wars....you and me are the same could suggest that we are all the same and we should not fight.Im probably wrong but this song also makes me think about the united states having wars against eachother.Hey,I know im probably wrong

    Too be honest i think that this song has been inspired by the immigration problems that have come to light in the UK recently. This verse:
    "You and me fall in line
    To be punished for unproven crimes
    And we know there is no one we can trust
    Our ancient heroes they are turning to dust"

    Unproven crimes- i interpret to mean shariah law that is used in the Middle east through denunciation sometimes ie no-one being trusted.
    Extremists in the UK campaign for shariah law to be put in place in British law - hence taking away the freedom of the british people that our ancestors fought for twice in the World Wars our 'Ancient Heroes'. There is a view that some muslims will only be happy if the state becomes islamic.
    Just an alternate view.

    The inspiration of this song is taken from the book "the grand chess board" which suggests that peace (particularly in the middle east) will only come about once there is a unification of the Eurasian nations, i.e a united states of Eurasia. It also seeks to promote the idea that middle eastern conflicts have been rumbling on for so long that the real point or basis behind them beginning is making it difficult to let them find a conclusion.
