Collective Consciousness is the theme for Senator Steven Armstrong while he is piloting Metal Gear EXCELSUS. It also played during the second half of the battle against Steven Armstrong in the Jetstream DLC.

The lyrics appear to denote the deranged beliefs of corrupt politicians and bureaucrats, letting the poor and downtrodden be sacrificed for the gains of the rich and powerful, keeping in theme with Armstrong's position as a senator. Alternatively, the lyrics could refer to how Raiden's perceives Armstrong, as the song plays before Armstrong reveals his true motives behind Operation Tecumseh.

The demo (or unmixed) version was sung by Tim Anderson from Shadows Entwined band, and has three different lines respect Maniac Agenda Mix by Jimmy Gnecco (marked in bold below).

LyricsEdit

Collective Consciousness (Maniac Agenda Mix)Edit

The unenlightened masses
They cannot make the judgement call
Give up free will forever their voices won’t be heard at all
Display obedience
While never stepping out of line
And blindly swear allegiance
Let your country control your mind

(Let your country control your soul)

Live in ignorance
And purchase your happiness
When blood and sweat is the real cost
Thinking ceases, the truth is lost
Don’t you worry
You’ll be told exactly what to do
I give my people the lives they need
The righteous will succeed

The fires of greed will burn the weak
So we’ll make freedom obsolete
Making whole the fabric of society
Collective consciousness controlled as you will see

MIND CONTROL

Let your country control your soul
Let your country control your soul
Let your country control your soul
Let your country control your soul

[Official lyrics from Platinum Games - Do not modify]

Collective Consciousness (Demo / Original version)Edit

The unenlightened masses
They cannot make the judgement call
Give up free will forever their voices won’t be heard at all
Display obedience
While never stepping out of line
And blindly swear allegiance
Let your country control your mind

(Let your country control your soul)

Live in ignorance
And purchase your happiness
When blood and sweat is the real cost
Thinking ceases, the truth is lost
Don’t you worry
You’ll be told exactly what to do
I give my people the lives they need
The righteous will succeed

The fires will burn in their defeat
The human heart is obsolete
Breaking down the fabric of society
Collective consciousness controlled as you will see

MIND CONTROL

Let your country control your soul
Let your country control your soul
Let your country control your soul
Let your country control your soul
