Wjen, that's aboslutely amazing. I'd give anything to have been there. Only Muse can silence a crowd like that. The only version I think is better was, of course, Hullabaloo, because it was done on piano. The songs always seem more intimate, somehow, when Matt's on piano.
This song was magical at Leeds. It was slightly drizzly, and when they played the chorus, the brightest floodlights I have ever seen shone into the crowd, and you could see the rain highlighted in the floodlights, as the twinkly arpeggios ran up and down, arms in the air...it was the highlight of my life. Best of all, the fuckers who were at the festival just to say "omg I was at Leeds festival" stood still and silent for the whole song, because they kept waiting for the breakdown to mosh to, which, of course, never came :)
So many teens have been victimized by our society that teaches that short-term fixes will solve problems. Our capitalistic society has commercialized sex, drugs, etc. for tv/radio ratings and profits. I had to hide the fact that I was gay from sixth grade through the first couple years of college and that's a lot not to share with anyone. When you grow up hiding something like your sexuality or being sexually/physically abused as a kid or young adolescent, it will definitely change you for the rest of your life to some degree, maybe small, but perhaps drastic. This song just really hit home for me and has made me think about these issues for about an hour or so.
(2/2) Stand up for yourself and let everyone know the person you really are, not the person who thrives on shocking his loved ones and screens himself to hide low self-esteem. I know this song used to be called "Razor Blades" because of the teens that feel like they have to harm themselves to feel alive. I think the song is very dark but uplifting at the same time. The song starts out very innocent and becomes weighty. The chorus is heavenly then the guitar goes into a tangled mess for the verse. The lyrics are begging the person to be honest with himself, end the self-denial, and tries to convince the person that everyone wants you to lose your fakeness because you were such a beautiful creature because the real you was loved for your honest personality.
