William Shakespeare or Matt Bellamy...Who wrote it?

"What a terrible era in which idiots govern the blind"

"When god decides to look the other way and a clown takes the throne"

"How can we win, when fools can be kings?"

"Something is rotten in the state of Denmark"

"You corrupt
And bring corruption to all that you touch
You'll behold
And beholden for all that you've done
Cast a spell
Cast a spell on the country you run
And risk
You will risk
You will risk all their lives and their souls...
Oh, our freedom's consuming itself
What we've become
Is contrary to what we want
Take a bow...
Feed the hex
Feed the hex on the country you love"
