Muse - [JFK] Lyrics




"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 guerrillas 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."

[John F. Kennedy; April 27, 1961]

  11. mcscorpio1

    Nice how they show the globe lie by telievisions. The globe lie by your box in the corner. Water always seeks its own level. There is no curve. Wake up.

  12. Camilo M

    Finally 2019 I am free from Imperial brainwashing of the empire.

  13. kosmos007

    This whole album is incredible

  14. Andrés Roberti

    My favorite song of Drones

  15. Pepino Moreno

    Unfortunately, war is necessary to win and get necesary energy (oil) to feed all the live performances in western world.

  16. Cristopher ツ

    Era para Perú esta 😥

  17. John Roverthorne

    I'm not a particular fan of Muse, but the instrumentation in Drones is absolutely fire. The album would have exploded for sure if Matt had put some more efforts into the lyrics.

  18. Minh Pham

    I cum twice at 3:57 & 5:12

    You've got a problem

    Free
    Yeah I'm free
    From society
    You can't control me
    I'm a defector

    You think you're strong and you can't be broken
    But your empire is dissolving
    You thought, you thought I was weak
    But you got it wrong
    Look into my eyes
    I'm a defector

    Yeah, I'm free
    From society
    You can't control me
    I'm a defector

    Your blood is blue and your mind's turned green
    And your belly is all yellow
    You believe your throne is too high to be overthrown
    We'll watch it get razed
    By a defector

    Free
    Yeah, I'm free
    From your inciting
    You can't brainwash me
    You've got a problem

    Free
    Yeah, I'm free
    From society…

  45. Clothilde

    Wow using the BBC branding on all those words is so subtle. I can’t imagine what Muse meant in this video!!

    (Before you crucify me, I do like this tune. But Muse’s lyrics SUCK and their videos are heavy-handed. It’s infuriating when they are so gifted musically!)

    Muse + JFK
    Please realize that Muse is injecting this incredibly important JFK speech here for a reason. Please wake up! JFK was the last true president and patriot and it got him killed by the MIC. The threat is INTERNAL not EXTERNAL and always was. Take the red pill. JFK wanted better for us, do not let his death be in vain.

  64. Human Bean

    I can't sing this song without saying pwoblem
    i love it

  65. PandoraNYC1

    2019 U.S.A.- How prophetic JFK's words turned out to be.

  66. Steve Razor

    This song warn us about elite global and federal reserve

  78. Space Equestrian

    Holyfuck I had forgotten just how good this song is

    This is the best song from the album in my opinion.

  82. Keith Smilowski

    Wake up 2019!!!

  83. mayathepsychic

    defector? that's a funny way of spelling UNDERRATED

  84. Schenck Films

    One day, I will make music videos for Muse

  85. Lloyd Maliakal

    Muse is my favourite . I swear their ideas are very similar to likes of Pink Floyd. Defector is the best song that I truly admire from the Drones album. I play this aloud in my car and people just look at me and I just smile back because this song truly means to be FREE. :) In my heart and soul.

  86. Emiliano Peña

    Freedom🤲🏻

  87. Snekcharmer

    This and Hyper Music have very similar riffs to Snakecharmer by Rage Against The Machine. nice :D

  88. Mike West

    Modern. Music is shite,but Muse are fucking Magic !,,,

    Mike West

    The whole album is 11/10, it fits in with in my top 20 or maybe to 10 all time albums and I’m an old git born in 1961, ( work it out)

    Miralex

    @Mike West top 10? Wow

    mayathepsychic

    Mike West i think it's muse's worst album by a long shot, but i guess that says more about the other albums than this one :)

    Mike West

    mayathepsychic , this is certainly better than Resistance , Showbiz, Black Holes and The 2nd Law , its all a matter of opinions at the end of the day !

  89. pownall

    Easily one of my favourite Muse songs, if not my favourite🙌🙌

  90. Joseph Rosiles, Jr.

    This is a great Queen piece.

    Only Muse could pull this off.

  91. Bready

    Personally I don't like to take Matt's lyrics too literally to present day stuff

    Defector is to me a message about not giving in to an oppressive government (ie Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, North Korea might be an exception to my "present day" statement)

    MyUnoriginalUsername

    It's alot more than that.

  92. franckom Uccelli

    After JFK... Shit... A new spring with Trump and truth!!! Pray and fight! A new Yuga is coming! NAMASTE 🙏 AVANTI TUTTA!!

  93. Shay D. Mann

    Im surprised their suicides havnt been staged yet
