Beautiful song, sends chills down my spine and tells the dark side of love. Purely amazing <3. P.S don't listen to this song when you have a headache.

This song helped me through high school. Ah, it took Muse such a long time to become popular on this side of the pond but they finally got it. It's a shame it took so long.

Nina, so sooooo agree w/ you. Music of Muse is captivating, interesting, technical, intricate, never fails to grab your mind and heart. And the Voice of Matt, above and beyond all others, Beautiful...

Good music, good mood

Most of Muse's songs are really underrated except the ones they play on the radio. I don't really care which Muse song it is as long as Matt Bellamy is singing... so, every single one, then.

Such a wonderful and emotional song. Its unfortunatel y one of Muse's more underrated songs.

SO MANY F**KING CYMBAL CRASHES! F**K! It could have been epic, they need someone to remaster this song badly.

Haven't heard this song in YEARS (like at least 10) and didn't know it was Muse until now. WOW. it's always funny when you find out how things enter your life sooner than you thought.

"I have played in every toilet..." He hasn't played in MINE yet! Heck, they haven't even performed a concert in my mirror yet either... But Muse is the best band ever none the less!!!

She had something to confess to
But you don't have the time so
Look the other way
You will wait until it's over
To reveal what you'd never shown her
Too little much too late

Too long trying to resist it
You've just gone and missed it
It's escaped your world

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
When it pleases you
And I'll do it on my own

I have played in every toilet
But you still want to spoil it
To prove I've made a big mistake
Too long trying to resist it
You've just gone and missed it
It's escaped your world

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
When it pleases you
And I'll do it on my own
I'll do it on my own

Apparently this song was named "Muscle Museum" because a dictionary Muse owned showed the words before and after the word "Muse"

I love this song and believe Muse can sound so big because of the layers of sound they make. There is no "one-two-one - t w o " bassline or drumbeat - everything is dynamic.
