Map of the Problematique lyrics

Don't get me wrong, MoTP is an impressive song both live and studio. And the vocals are very well sung by Matt.

But what is the meaning behind the vocals?
I have heard that the vocals could mean a lot of different things, but what can you see in them?

I quite like the line 'Loneliness be over, when will this loneliness be over'
It almost sounds like a command, very 'powerful' sounding.
Also EVERYONE knows this but Phobos and Deimos were the two Roman (?) gods for fear and panic. You know, 'fear and panic in the air'. But what's also interesting is Mars' moons are also called Phobos and Deimos.
OoOooOoOoOo!

I think they were Greek, they seem like Greek names to me, I could be wrong.

The lyrics of the Chorus and Verse are about different things when i listen to it. The Chorus could simply be about a relationship, but the Verse about War: "Fear and Panic in the air" showing that something dangerous could happen at any time, and "And I feel, Like everything I sow, Is been swept away" Showing that the hard work that the people put into things (farming) is being helplessly blown away without a care.
"And no one, Thinks they are to blame, Why can't we see, When we bleed we bleed the same?" Showing that the blame game of war is pointless, when in the end both sides are no better off.

I'm confused between relationship and war.

The same can go for Hoodoo I suppose.

Yeah those are the Greek names.

Also "Deimos" is dread not panic.

There really is "fear and panic in the air" right now all over the world. MoTP is the current theme song to the coming apocalypse...

I think that MOTP is the best song Muse have released (CE comes second), does anyone agree with me - the lyrics and the instruments combine to make one hell of a powerful song.

I think it's good song, but not their best.

Before I heard this version of "Assassin", it was just another track. Now whenever I listen to the album, I always have to switch out to the KoC Single to hear it. The final version just doesn't do it for me anymore.
