Drones
Muse Lyrics


Killed by drones

My mother, killed by drones
My sister and brother killed by drones

Our lives between your
Fingers and your hands
Can you feel anything?
Are you dead inside?
Now you can kill
From the safety of your home
With drones

Amen

This song is like a slap in the face, those lyrics

Killed by drones
My mother, killed by drones
My sister and brother killed by drones
Our lives between your
Fingers and your hands
Can you feel anything?
Are you dead inside?
Now you can kill
From the safety of your home
With drones
Amen

@ieo i wrote them like four years ago just listening to the song I'm sorry for the wrong lyrics I guess, you know at that time I wrote them just listening to the song, it seems i wasn't accurate enough!! But still I was pretty close to the official lyrics! I totally forgot about this comment tbh 😂

Thanks for the correction tho, i hope you have a nice day 🥰

ieo

No, these are the official lyrics:

Killed by drones
My mother, my father,
My sister and my brother
My son and my daughter
Killed by drones
Our lives between your fingers and your thumb
Can you feel anything?
Are you dead inside?
Now you can kill
From the safety of your home
With drones
Amen

唔知改咩名好

Amen

@Светлый Ангел  Definitely not only USA .. grow up.. any nation/organisation/self righteous idealistic cult/rich motherfuckers looking out for nr1 usually but respect to those that can abstain from that mentality and be wise enough not to let that "weakness" expose them to potential terrorism from other such entities.. anything such that has a self image that demands good ethics and order and runs a department that happens to have lethal attack drones only for defense and hostage rescue and snowflood prevention.. bravo!
They are much cheaper and infinately more secure than humans. They'll literally do whatever they are instructed.

Love to the pitiful operators too.

Amen.

OMG. Muse's last song on their album is a 5 voice motet in the renaissance style (much like you'd hear from Palestrina or William Byrd in the 16th century). I'm a choir director and a huge Muse fan. This is BEST way their new album could've ended for me! Love Muse!

@ieo True. I should have said "Changed it to 'Killed by drones [etc.]'" to be more accurate.

@Karl Stefans
Changed the words to "killed by drones"? That's only one of a multitude of lines in the song.

I just heard a lecture on Palestrina, with an audio example of some of his work and immediately thought if this piece. I came here to see if anyone else caught on. Glad to see all you big brains in the comments! Muse is a great band, but I think it is a bit shallow to praise them as geniuses for simply using a pre-existing musical style, like people who are ignorant of the inspiration for this piece often do.
