"[JFK]" lyrics - MUSE

(Matthew Bellamy)

For we are opposed around the world
By a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy
That relies primarily on covert means
For expanding its sphere of influence
On infiltration instead of invasion
On subversion instead of elections
On intimidation instead of free choice
On guerillas by night instead of armies by day

It is a system which has conscripted
Vast human and material resources
Into the building of a tightly-knit
Highly efficient machine
That combines military, diplomatic, intelligence
Economic, scientific and political operations

Its preparations are concealed, not published
Its mistakes are buried, not headlined
Its dissenters are silenced, not praised
