    ‘Kill Or Be Killed’ is Muse at their heaviest! We wanted to update our hard rock sound on this album and with KOBK we found a modern metal sound featuring double bass drum action and even a death growl. Lyrically the song takes influence from my favourite Paul McCartney song “Live and Let Die”, a dark take on how life’s adversity can sometimes bring out the worst human instincts to survival at any costs.” - Matt

    LYRICS
    Cornered, I’m exhausted with fear 
    Our love and compassion dissolved 
    And demons, have materialised in me
    Can’t fight them, they’re taking control
    And we’ve tried, oh we’ve tried so hard to be good 
    But the world rewards us when we’re bad 
     
    Fate, is driving me insane
    It’s forcing me to face
    I must kill or be killed
     
    Kill or be killed
     
    They’ve driven a stake right through my heart 
    I’m growing so cold and detached
    And I’ve tried, oh I’ve tried so hard to spread love 
    But she prefers it when I assert control 
     
    Fate has brought us here to face
    Our hopes and dreams erased 
    Either kill or be killed
    Yah, Yah Yah Yah, Yah Yahweh Yah Yahweh Yah Yah Yah
    Yah Yah Yah
    Ah Eh Yah Yah
    Yah Yah Yah
    Kill or be killed
    War
    Kill or be killed
    Yaaahhh
    Yah Yah Yah Yah Yah Yah
    Either kill or be killed
