Favourite quotes from Muse songs.

the screaming from Execution Commentary :happy:

 

Yeah there are actually lot of, I don't want to select. Although the lyrics in general aren't the best there are always some truly good moments.

All of Megalomania, Citizen Erased and Hoodoo.

"I'm sick of feeding my soul/To people who'll never know/Just how purposeless and empty they've grown/Because their language confuses/Like computers refuse to/Understand how I'm feeling today"

 

"Can you see that I am needing/Begging for so much more/Than you could ever give/And I don’t want you to adore me/Don’t want you to ignore me"

 

"And I'll hide from the world/Behind a broken frame/And I'll run forever/I can't face the shame"

 

"Don't grow up too fast/And don't embrace the past/This life's too good to last/And I'm too young to care"

'Wash me away, clean your body of me...' from CE, you guys know the rest :LOL:

It's mainly the way they're sung though; my favourite lyrics on their own are probably

'Faith, it drives me away/ But it turns me on, like a strangers love/ It rockets through the universe/ It fuels the lies, it feeds the curse/ Believes we could be glorious' from Glorius. It really explains how it feels to be a sort of outsider to religion; to not really know what you believe in, but feeling like there's something like that, that's external, but also within you and humanity :$ ...

I love Matt's lyrics. I know he gets criticised a lot for his lyrics but just reading through here, there's so many I love.

Sometimes I think it's just the delivery which some people dislike.

here's nowhere left to hide

in no one to confide

the truth burns deep inside

and will never die

 

 

I thought I was a fool for no-one

Oh baby I'm a fool for you

You're the queen of the superficial

And how long before you tell the truth

I have no tattoos yet but

“Do it on your own, it makes no difference to me / What you leave behind, what you choose to be.”

”All the scars on your skin - post no bills.”

These will be on me somewhere someday. Even set aside from analysing ‘good lyrics and bad lyrics’, I love these two as quotes and they stand out above everything else for me in that sense. They both hit a really touching level of intimacy that’s rare with Matt’s style imo, like something only someone very close to you could say. They float around my head all the time, whether I’m on a Muse binge or not.

"Doubts will try to break you
Unleash your heart and soul
Trouble will surround you
Start taking some control
Stand up and deliver
Your wildest fantasy
Do what the fuck you want to
There's no one to appease"

I'm so found of this whole verse of Panic Station :)
