Citizen Erased (7:19)

Cover of Origin of Symmetry

From Origin of Symmetry and 22 other releases

‘Citizen Erased’ is the sixth track from Muse’s second studio album ‘Origin of Symmetry’. At 7 minutes 21 seconds, it is currently Muse’s longest song on any studio recorded album.

The song was first played live on the 12th February 2001, and the guitar intro was originally played on keyboard. The piano outro was introduced around April 2001, and a different riff in the solo section was introduced during the Absolution tour. The song is enormously popular among Muse’s fan base, but is still fairly rare inclusion in recent Muse sets.

It is the only song when Matt Bellamy’s 7-string Manson is used.

In the week starting 9th July 2007, some members of and other fansites attempted to get Citizen Erased into the UK charts. It eventually reached position #122.

Break me in teach us to cheat and to lie
Cover up what shouldn't be shared
And the truth's unwinding, scraping away at my mind
Please stop asking me to describe him
