A Parody to the Tune of "Won't Stand Down"

Recommended Posts

I've been writing/recording parodies over the past year or so. After releasing the anti-vaxxxer-inspired "On the Wrong Side" (based off "Mr. Brightside"), I got dared by a Twitter follower of mine to write a parody to the tune of Muse's new song, so I did that. I haven't recorded it yet, but here is the conspiracist-inspired parody, in case anyone might be curious:

“World Ain’t Round” (parody based off the Muse song, “Won’t Stand Down”)

I went on the web, to find some depth, to my tinfoil-hat conspiracies

I know that I’m right, so let me try, to fit this square peg in a circle

Your science is wrong, I heard in a song, written by a voice in my head

So back to YouTube, with some scary dude, calls himself GeniuserThenAll

 

I went on the web, to find some depth, on what I always want to be true

I know that I’m right, so let me try, to go and prove that which can’t be proved

Your science is wrong, I heard in a song, sung by voices in my head

So back to YouTube, with some scary dude, who appears to be on something

 

World ain’t round

It’s just way longer

World ain’t round

A hoax is Armstrong

World ain’t round

Greeks photoshopped five-thousand years ago

 

The moon is fake, so the landing was staged, just close your eyes at night to see

Illuminati, to rule all that is free, of course led by Lady G

In Roswell there were probes, green men said, “Disrobe!,” just watch all of those movies

COVID was made up, vaccines control us, all robots since we were babies

 

The moon is fake, so the landing was staged, astronaut suits are costumes

Illuminati, rulers of all that is free, of course led by Jay-Z

In Roswell there were probes, green men said, “Disrobe!,” just watch all of those movies

COVID was made up, vaccines control us, all robots since we were babies


World ain’t round

It’s just way longer

World ain’t round

A hoax is Armstrong

World ain’t round

Greeks photoshopped five-thousand years ago

 

World ain’t round

Can’t fall down

World ain’t round

 

World ain’t round

It’s just way longer

World ain’t round

A hoax is Armstrong

World ain’t round

Greeks photoshopped five-thousand years ago

 

World ain’t round

World ain’t round

🤦‍♀️ I feel like you don’t know Muse or Matthew Bellamy at all. Clearly, you don’t get their songs. I know they’ve not written a song straight out against vaccines, but the rest? Matt Bellamy isn’t a ‘conspiracy theorist’, he just knows more than most and chooses to SEE more than most. Things are changing fast, for the better, and you will see he and us so-called ‘conspiracy theorists’ had been right.

Oh my, this escalated quickly. You do know what a parody is, right? When Weird Al wrote "Fat," I don't think it was him laying claim that Michael Jackson was obese. 

...and wait, so are you a flat-earther?

No, I’m not a ‘flat-earther’. I see some of the points to it, but flat? I’m not sure. And I honestly don’t care what the hell the Earth is shaped. I would be interested in knowing for sure, but will it change my life? No.

So what do you see and know that the rest of us don't? ...and does Matt see and know what you do, or do you just pretend he does, in order to make yourself feel better? 🤔

If you payed better attention to the musician you love so much, you would see he is repetitively saying the truth- ‘conspiracy theories’, you may know them by. Remember the show at Wembley in 2007? HAARP? Do you know what HAARP is? Matt does. And what about City of Delusion? “I choose to hide from the all-seeing eye.” Do you have an explanation for this to counteract my ‘conspiracies’? Or Ruled By Secrecy? Before making out people who wish to see truth speak none sense, please look back at all of these things. Look at the interviews and LISTEN to the words that come out of Matt’s mouth. Still think I’m delusional? How about George Harrison- he would agree with these ‘conspiracies’, he had written songs about them, like Matt. Or Prince? He was speaking out against chemtrails.

You say "my conspiracies," without elaborating on what they are. How can one listen to another if the other just spouts vagueness like "my conspiracies"?

I don't think you know as much about Matt as you think. A 2006 song (a single line from it) and a 2007 concert? That was 16 and 15 years ago, respectively. A few things have changed in Matt's life since then, including having kids. He's always said he's conspiracy-curious, but doesn't necessarily buy into them. You seem to contend Matt's curiosity in conspiracies means he believes them, but curiosity isn't equivalent to belief. I think you place too much stock in lyrics. Give a guy messed up on drugs a pen and odds are he's going to write some crazy-sounding sh*t. 

Once again, the intent of a parody isn't necessarily to poke fun at the band nor song it's using for the parody. Weird Al is the most well-known parodist. Do you really think his takes off Madonna's "Like a Virgin" ("Like a Surgeon") or Michael Jackson's "Beat It" ("Eat It") had anything to do with poking fun at said artists? So, even if Matt were the most right-wing tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracist the world over, me using his song to parody right-wing conspiracy theories wouldn't mean I was necessarily poking fun at Matt. Muse is my favorite band. Why on earth would I write a parody to poke fun of them? 

The truth is Matt is not a 9/11-truther. He is not a flat-earther. He is not an anti-vaxxer nor anti-masker. He believes COVID is real; that Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine being used to treat it was BS; has hailed our healthcare workers as heroes during the pandemic; and called Donald Trump a "Nazi c*nt," calling for him to be impeached. He's as close to a right-wing nut job as Neptune is close to Mercury. My guess is you're a conspiracist; one reason you were compelled to listen to Muse was Matt's conspiracy-curiosity; and my lyrics struck a chord with you as a result. When you claimed I knew nothing about the band and singer, it's progressively coming across more as projection - as though the accusation were a confession.

Alright. I can agree, he doesn’t appear to like Trump, and he seems to believe this Covid none sense, and flat earth? Like I said, I’m not convinced by it either, but I’m OPEN to it, cause how am I to say ‘Oh, it’s definitely a ball and thats that because NASA said so with their suspicious ‘photos’ so there’. But the rest? He may not speak about conspiracies as often anymore, but don’t you think that having children to protect is a good enough reason for that? I mean, he spoke about the Queen being a reptilian, basically called out the secret societies, and said several threats in his songs to the globalists (“The time has come to shoot your leaders down”; “kill yourself, come on and do us all a favour”; “You will burn in hell for your sins”..) I mean, there is a SONG called the Globalist. And how about the Drones album as a whole? JFK+ Defector- 

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

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


Or Propaganda? Or how about his 2020 ‘Simulation Theory Theme’ from Cryosleep?

And I suppose that since I’m a conspiracy theorist, to believe about a cabal of hidden globalists, then President Kennedy was a conspiracy theorist for his desire to “splinter the C.I.A. in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds” or for his belief in human cloning (which, by the way, was referred to in the music video for Mercy).  Who else would be a ‘conspiracy theorist’, then? Here is some:

Jim Corr (from the Irish band ‘The Corrs’): Anti-vaccines, anti-government, believes that 9/11 was a controlled event, believe the swine-flu was man made, believes the American military has a secret tectonic weapon which could have been used to cause the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Jim Corr also things climate change is a hoax.

Roger Waters (of Pink Floyd): Literally wrote a song called ‘The powers that Be’, the ‘Animals’ album inspired by G. Orwell’s Animal Farm, has said that there is a ‘firmament’, there was literally a Pink Floyd album called ‘Flat Earth’, 

Prince: Like I said, spoke about the chemtrials. Prince made a speech in 1999 that was only available on his website called ‘One Song’, in which he explains spirituality, corruption and the spell-casting of words we speak. He also predicted his death shortly before died, tweeting “Just When U Thought U Were Safe” (He ‘died’ in an ELEVATOR. Ever heard of his song ‘Let’s Go Crazy’? “When the elevator tried to bring you down; go crazy”. He explained that the elevator is the Devil. He predicted that the globalists/Illuminati/Freemasons/satanists were going to try and kill him.

George Harrison: For a start, his 1981 song ‘Blood From a Clone’. A bit obvious, isn’t it? Then his never ending writings on spirituality and corruption.

Tom Petty: Released a B-Side to Hypnotic Eye (Yeah, Hypnotic Eye…), called ‘Playing Dumb’ , with several references to satanic abuse, and clearly hinting at D.U.M.B.’s (Deep Underground Military Bases).

Eric Clapton: Seems he would be anti-vaccine now, after the terrible effects it’s had on him.


I mean, that’s some pretty big names there.

You take Matts lyrics far too seriously. He said himself several times, that Muse shouldn‘t be taken too seriously. Like Koc, he had a laugh when they finished it 😅 Drones was not written from Matts perspective, haha .. in an interview he said, let‘s call the protagonist Mary. 
And I remember him saying that he took it too far with those conspiracy theories, so he went away from them.

Matt often writes tongue-in-cheek lyrics. He's said a common misconception about the band is that they take themselves too seriously. He recently said, on all but two occasions, he's focused on the music first and the lyrics second.

One of Muse's strengths, as far as outreach goes, is their typically vague/general lyrics. Matt has said he often does this so people of all stripes can relate to them in some manner or another. This hasn't always been a positive, as far as interpretation, perception, and communication/misunderstanding go, however. Glenn Beck used to hail the song "Uprising," and attempted to use it to further his own agenda, and this angered Matt, so he spoke out about it. "Drones" is now basically a musical rendition of the Bible, as its seemed to become an inkblot on whether to take the words literally or metaphorically. Matt has said to see them as the latter. "Compliance" drew at least one review, where the critic questioned whether it could be an anti-mask song. The band quickly released a statement thereafter to counter said thought.

Matt, like a lot of people, is adamantly opposed to government corruption. He also hasn't shied away from his atheistic leanings. While he has, in the past, labeled himself as a "liberal libertarian," more recent elaborations seem to reveal his "libertarian" leanings are with regard to personal matters (such as sexual orientation and gender identity), and his liberal leanings are more economical. 

We can read lyrics however we so choose, but that doesn't make our interpretations an accurate reflection of the artist's intent. If you want to view Matt's lyrics as anti-lockdown, anti-mask, anti-vax, and/or anti-the reality of COVID, that's your call, but Matt has never ascribed to those positions; he's actually fervently spoken out against them.

I will respect your opinion, but I will stick to mine. In the end, we will have to just wait and see.

I'm never sure what to do with this. Engaging seems futile, as no one can argue with an infinite amount of fragmented snippets of out of context nonsense, complete fantasies, lies and a sprinkling of truth and real societal concerns. Pointing out the apparent disfunction in an online nonsense-victim's mind's workings would be ill-advised and wrong of me to do, as I don't have the background and moral authority to diagnose mental illnesses. But when a recent survey suggests that 23% of Americans believe that U.S. institutions are “controlled by a group of Satan-worshipping pedophiles” who traffic children for sex, one can't sit idly by and ignore this ever-expanding dangerous communal delusion either.

I'm right there with you. Sadly, said individuals are so far removed from reality, the only thing which could potentially bring them back down to earth is some life-altering event. They continually dismiss common sense, facts, and reason as part of the grand conspiracy that is the liberal agenda. No matter how minute, all they seek is confirmation bias, and once received, their delusions will become further exacerbated. Anymore, I unfortunately see such individuals as a lost cause, and try to focus my attention on those who may be leaning that direction, but haven't fully committed to it yet.
