  • Music:


I was browsing Livejournal, and after just watching Reloaded for the 10,000 time i decided to see what LJ has to offer.

Obviously, i found this community, and i read This post. Wow. The matrix has, again, amazed me. It baffles me how people can say that The Matrix was crap, the thinking behind it is just so deep on so many levels.

Also, the soundtrack of the matrix has its own significances. I am a huge fan of Rage against the machine, and their music appears at the end of the first, and second one. (probably the third, but i haven't saw it yet). But i think the first one was the obvious link. The song while Neo flys is called "Wake up".
Although ya try to discredit
Ya still never edit
The needle I'll thread it
Radically poetic
Standin' with the fury that they had in '66
And like E-Double I'm mad, still knee deep in the system's shit
Hoover, he was a body remover
I'll give you a dose but it'll never come close to the rage
Built up inside of me
Fist in the air in the land of hypocracy

Movements come and movements go
Leaders speak movements cease when their heads are flown
Cause all these punks got bullets in their heads
Departments of police, the judges, the feds
Networks at work, keepin people calm
You know they went after King, when he spoke out on Vietnam
He turned the power to the have-nots
And then came the shot

With poetry my mind I flex
Flip like Wilson, vocals never lackin' dat finesse
Who I got ta who I got to do to wake you up
To shake you up to break the structure up
Cause blood still flows in the gutter
I'm like taking photos
Mad boy kicks open the shutter
Set the groove
Then I stick and move like I was Cassius
Rep the stutter step Then bomb a left upon the fascists
Yeah, several federal men
Who pulled schemes on the dream
And put it to an end
Ya betta beware
Of retribution with mind war
20/20 visions and murals with metaphors

Networks at work, keepin' people calm
Ya know they murdered X
And tried to blame it on Islam
He turned the power to the have-nots
And then came the shot

What was the price on his head
What was the price on his head

I think I heard a shot x5
I think I heard, I think I heard a shot

Black Nationalism
He may be a brave contenner for this position
Should he abandon his supposed obediance to the
white literal doctrine of non-violence
And embrace black nationalism
Through counter intellence it should be possible to pinpoint potential
trouble-makers and neutralize them x2
And neutralize them x6

How long, not long
Cause what you reap
Is what you sow!

And if you type in "Wake up" to any good lyrics engine, you will find quite a few songs called "wake up". So why choose Rage? I think the following piece by Brian at RATM is enough to suffice.
"Rage Against the Machine was one of the most influential bands of the 90s and remain
to this day, just because Zack left the band in no way means their music has died. Whether you're listening to their first album or the last album every word is still revelent today. In no way are they telling you to go out into the streets, set them a blaze and demand change. They beg for you to begin to think for yourself, to not just accept things because MSNBC says so. open your mind, knowledge is power."

Well anyhoo, just a quick hello.
