We’re animals
Buy when blood is on the street

from Muse – Animals Lyrics on Rap Genius


Bellamy is suggesting that we the average people are partly to blame for all this chaos because we continue to consume even when there are so many problems in the world. “Buy[ing] when blood is on the street” could be a reference to Wall Street, and perhaps even the Occupy Wall Street movement.
