Unsustainable – Muse

MUSE har släppt ett nytt album: The 2nd Law på vilket det finns några väldigt bra låtar. Bland annat denna fastnade jag för, mest för texten. Så här i apokalyps- och peak-oiltider så passar den väldigt bra.

Namnet på plattan, The 2nd Law har också en betydelse:
The name “The 2nd Law” references the second law of thermodynamics, which is quoted in the album trailer as follow

“All natural and technological processes proceed in such a way that the availability of the remaining energy decreases. In all energy exchanges, if no energy enters or leaves an isolated system, the entropy of that system incre,cre,cre,cre,c,c,creases. Energy continuously flows from being concentrated, to becoming dispersed, spread out, wasted and useless. New energy cannot be created and high grade energy is being destroyed. An economy based on endless growth is…Unsustainable”

Unsustainable
All natural and technological processes,
Proceed in such a way that the availability
Of the remaining energy decreases.
In all energy exchanges, if no energy
Enters or leaves an isolated system,
The entropy of that system increases.
Energy continuously flows from being
Concentrated to becoming dispersed,
Spread out, wasted and useless.
New energy cannot be created and high grade
Energy is being destroyed.
An economy based on endless growth is
Unsustainable

Unsu… Unsustain unsustain unser
Uns’ uns’ unsustainer unsustainer
Unsu… Unsustain Unsustain
Uns’ uns’ you’re unsustainable

The fundamental laws of thermodynamics will
Place fixed limits on technological innovation
And human advancement.
In an isolated system; the entropy
Can only increase
A species set on endless growth is
Unsustainable

Unsu… Unsustain unsustain unser
Uns’ uns’ unsustainer unsustainer
Unsu… Unsustain Unsustain
Uns’ uns’ you’re unsustainable.
