"MK Ultra" as written by and Matthew James Bellamy....
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?
You mind's about to fall

And they are breaking through,
They are breaking through,
Now we're 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,
Now we're falling,
We are losing control

    General CommentMK Ultra was a CIA program where they experimented with mind control. Highly qualified Nazi scientists were employed to conduct these tests. They also experimented with other things that had brutal results. I can't remember what they were trying to find but far too many people died from being tested on. I think HAARP was started from MK Ultra as well.
    I think Muse should run the world.

    Fucking epic song though.

    General CommentIf you are into the MK ultra thing, few things for you to check out (I know Muse would be proud of me for spreading the conspiracy theories around LOL)

    Do some reading on the People's Temple in particular, the Jonestown event. Some believe this place was a testing ground for MK ultra. Hyper-inducing drugs to try to brainwash people and make them believe whatever. The Mass suicide that took place there was also believed to be an extermination caused by the CIA. And speaking of the CIA, Jim Jones, the leader of the People's Temple, was believed to have been working with the CIA.

    The docter the head project MK Ultra was Sidney Gottlieb (an interesting read). He'd inject barbituates in one arm and simultaneously inject amephetamines in the patients other arm. He was also behind several assassination attempts made by the CIA.

    General CommentThis song tells obviously a part of the 1984 story.
    BUT by giving this song an actual title, he wants to make us see that George Orwell's prediction is coming true. That's the message of the whole album, in fact.

    General CommentIt's totally about Project MK Ultra , but as usual, you can read it on different levels if you want.....

    When I've read on wiki what this CIA atrocity was I was "holy shit Bellamy is one crazy genius" ! Cause what impresses me the most with this track is HOW the SOUND and I mean every single bit of it fits TOTALLY with the mental state those poor people were while the CIA was playing with their minds and brains.

    It's totally like it, a slow fall to darkness and insanity....

    Pure Masterpiece

    My OpinionThis is so far my favourite song off the album, it seems to have a lot more energy than the rest. However, I am yet to listen to Exogenesis yet.

    General Commenthis talking about the nwo illuminati lies, deception, and now that this information is available on the internet and accessable to everyone basically, r history can be deleted in one stroke, hence when you find the true history of humanity all the history uve been taught has been lies. so basically saying how much longer will we take this. i don't think the song is specifically about mkultra but more of a general outlook on the current situation, but since the song is titled that it will spark people to do their research on what really has been going on. very good song, but risky lyrics considering muse is pretty big

    General CommentLyrics are pretty self explanatory. It's basically about the uprising/resistance coming to an end. It seems like there is some kind of nuclear holocaust that "delete's history in one stroke."
