"The Handler" as written by and Matthew James Bellamy....
You were my oppressor
And I, I have been programmed to obey
But now, you are my handler
And I, I will execute your demands

Leave me alone
I must disassociate from you

Behold my transformation
And you are empowered to do as you please
My mind was lost in translation
And my heart has become a cold and impassive machine

Leave me alone
I must disassociate from you

I won't let you control my feelings anymore
And I will no longer do as I am told
And I am no longer afraid to walk alone
Let me go
Let me be
I am escaping
From your grip
You will never own me again

    General CommentThis song is overloaded with illuminati stuff. It's precluded with the "follow yellow brick road" which connotes "WIZARD OF OZ and the ILLUMINATI MIND CONTROL" article, references Cathy O'Brien "Trans Formation of America". The Handler is a slave controlling master in Monarch parlance, in the lyric video includes monarch butterflies and a teddy bear which is supposed to symbolize the helplessness against the mind control in conspiracy theories.

    General CommentI refuse to believe this isn't about their relationship and break up.

    It sounds to me like Kate Hudson was a control freak. I'm not surprised about how happy Matt is now that they are split up.

    General CommentThis song is completely a song about escaping a relationship that was emotionally shackling. Living with someone who sought to control one's every thought and move and finally breaking free.

    The moment I heard this song I could completely comprehend the meaning. I guess having been in such a relationship and being able to extricate myself from its grip and now watching someone I care about trying to escape such a situation, I can only surmise that this song sums up the terror of living with a control freak!
