Mac and Cheese, and Muse

This evening I made macaroni and cheese for my little sister and myself. I don't normally do that since mac and cheese isn't high up on my lists of foods that are particularly good for you. But it was easy, and it fit in with this evening.

As I danced around the kitchen to Taio Cruz, La Roux, Muse, and Lady Gaga, it occurred to me (having just read Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (and having just written a post about having just rea
d Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins)) that Uprising, by Muse, was really the perfect theme song for the books. The words are:



The paranoia is in bloom, the PR
Transmissions will resume
They'll try to push drugs
Keep us all dumbed down and hope that
We will never see the truth around
Another promise, another scene, another
Package not to keep us trapped in greed
With all the green belts wrapped around our minds
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined
They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious
Interchanging mind control
Come let the revolution take its toll if you could
Flick the switch and open your third eye, you'd see that
We should never be afraid to die
(So come on!)
Rise up and take the power back, it's time that
The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that
Their time is coming to an end
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend
They will not force us 
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

The book centers around a revolution of sorts, but I won't go into detail. It is worth reading. But whether you read it or not, the song is fantastic. And the video is weird.

Come to think of it, a lot of the music by Muse has similar themes. If and when they make a
Hunger Games movie, they should use something by Muse.
