Muse & Obama

Has anyone noticed how the lyrics to Muse's "Butterflies & Hurricanes" sound like an Obama speech?


Change everything you are
And everything you were
Your number has been called
Fight, and battles have begun
Revenge will surely come
Your hard times are ahead

Best, you've got to be the best
You've got to change the world
And you use this chance to be heard
Your time is now
Your time is now

Change, everything you are
And everything you were
Your number has been called
Fight, and battles have begun
Revenge will surely come
Your hard times are ahead

Best, you've got to be the best
You've got to change the world
And you use this chance to be heard
Your time is now
Your time is now

Don't let yourself down
Don't let yourself go
Your last chance has arrived

Best, you've got to be the best
You've got to change the world
And you use this chance to be heard
Your time is now
Your time is now



Maybe not quite "revenge", but I thought particularly the bits about "your hard times are ahead", and of course, "change".

Incidentally I think Obama is awesome and Butterflies and Hurriances is one of Muse's best songs. You can see the rather cool (if unrelated) video here:
