Knights of Cydonia
Muse Lyrics


Come ride with me
Through the veins of history
I'll show you a God
Falls asleep on the job

And how can we win,
When fools can be kings
Don't waste your time
Or time will waste you

No one's going to take me alive
Time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No one's going to take me alive
Time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No one's going to take me alive
Time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

Lyrics

[Instrumental Intro with Vocalizations]

Come ride with me
Through the veins of history
I'll show you a god
Who falls asleep on the job
And how can we win
When fools can be kings?
Don't waste your time
Or time will waste you

No one's gonna
Take me alive
The time has come
To make things right
You and I must
Fight for our rights
You and I must
Fight to survive
No one's gonna
Take me alive
The time has come
To make things right
You and I must
Fight for our rights
You and I must
Fight to survive

No one's gonna
Take me alive
The time has come
To make things right
You and I must
Fight for our rights
You and I must
Fight to survive

I think it's about China-US-Russia relations:

Characters involved:
Man With No Name (China): the Marlboro cowboy who knows (faux) Kung Fu
Princess Shane Kuriyami (Russia): the blonde seductress
Sheriff Baron Klaus Rottingham (USA): the blond Marlboro cowboy (bad guy)

The scene starts with MWNN doing various (faux) Kung Fu moves. Very unlikely skill possessed by a cowboy. We assume he is China.

Then, he rode to a guesthouse to play cards with the Princess. Halfway through, they wrestled for a bit before relenting to some passionate love-making. The scene can be interpreted as a diplomatic meeting between China and Russia. Before the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the relationship between China and USSR was strained as both competed to control the worldwide Communist Movement. After the dissolution of Soviet Union, their relationship was strengthened, when they signed the Treaty of Good-Neighbourliness & Friendly Cooperation in 2001 (2:02 - 3:15).

How do we assume the Princess is Russia? There is a set of Matryoshka dolls in her room (3:15).

As for the Sheriff, we assume he is USA as only a local can be made a Sheriff. He seemed to also garner a lot of respect. People kneeled down when he got out of his car (3:03 - 3:08). He also seemed to have a love-hate relationship with the Princess. One moment, he was passionate about her and the next, he wanted to hang her. During Boris Yeltsin time, the US-Russia relationship seemed to be generally okay but it quickly deteriorated in 1999 after NATO bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.

The Sheriff was also not particularly fond of MWNN. He locked MWNN’s head and hands on a guillotine (3:50) and allowed him to be a subject of humiliation where people threw mud at him (3:57 - 3:59). It reflects US’ anti-Chinese sentiment manifested as US-China trade war in real life.

Moral of the story: China and Russia are allies. USA is not fond of the two.

@rando prior Firstly I'm impressed you kept count. Those are rookie numbers ;)
Joking, but seriously it is impressive.


I played a lot of videogames as a kid. We through LAN parties and held competitions and invited half the damn neighborhood and had a blast. We'd have kickass music playing the whole time, a barbecue, and a lot of good talk and good vibes. We talked about the future, and all that good shit.
I got a lot of great ideas for my writing from playing videogames, and many of the older ones helped me immensely in understanding how to structure stories and write dialogue, worldbuild, and create plots.
Games like Total War and Dynasty warriors got me interested in history, mythology, and martial arts, and introduced me to some equally kickass people in those fields.
Competitive games like Halo and Gears of war introduced me to people I never would have taken the time to talk to otherwise, and helped me build networks that I still maintain today.
Winning and losing competitive games taught me to be a better sportsman.
Even Minecraft was a good social experience, and helped me express my creativity. We used to do bimonthly showcases for best or most interesting construction.
I've probably sunk as many if not more hours than you into videogames/


I did a short but successful stint in the military as an IT then got out and got in to Welding, and now I make bank. I still play video games. Not anywhere near as much as I used to, but I haven't put them down yet.
Fact is buddy everything is what you make of it. We are all sorry you feel like you wasted your time, and we are all glad you found your way forward and are doing the things you love now.
Real talk though, you have no prerogative to speak to anyone that way. Our joys are not your joys. And many of us made great use of our time, and learned great things along the way. Just like you could have. Just like Id hope you are doing now.
So lets all try and be a little more courteous to one another yeh? Enjoy the fucking music man \m/(>0<)

And how can we win,
When fools can be kings
Don't waste your time
Or time will waste you
No one's going to take me alive
Time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive
No one's going to take me alive
Time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive
No one's going to take me alive
Time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive
