Yes, there was no terrorism before 2001, certainly not in the UK.

Let's just say that it's very similar to another set of... meme-worthy lyrics.
I've genuinely never spotted that, haha! I love the song though, so...

Can I vote for just about anything in I Belong To You?

And now I can't not think of that when I hear that line. Damn you, Jobby! (Kidding, of course. Actually, I feel like quoting you on that when I eventually make a "Top 10 Silliest Muse Lyrics" video.)

The sarcasm is strong with this one...

Eh, fair enough. Still, things have grown a lot more paranoid recently, between terrorism, school shootings, and general increased violence, and I doubt that I would be able to get away with writing lyrics about blowing up my hometown of Charlottesville.

Hey, while I'm talking to you:

May I quote this for my "Silliest Muse Lyrics" video? It was very informative.

Hey, it's all good! Part of the point of this thread is that good songs can still have silly lyrics, and I doubt that Matt meant to rip off Rick Astley there (though at the same time, if he did, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised).

Any particular highlights? (My guess is either "You are my Muuuuuuuuuuu... ...uuuuuuse," "She attacks me like a Leo when my heart is split like Rio," and Matt's mumbling in French.)

Can't see the problem with the clouds of gas one, he's talking about space phenomena.

Do live substitutions count? Because "OUHUHUHUHUHUHUHUTARARARRARARARARARARARRAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAA you know what I mean, don't you know? DADADAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAH you know what I mean..." is glorious.

The Video

I decided to compile my picks and some of yours into a video. Thanks for the suggestions! I never would have caught some of them without y'all pointing them out to me.

It's odd how the lyrics are "It scares the hell out of me" when the title is Thoughts of a Dying Atheist

Genuinely, hands down, the worst thing he's ever come out with for me, even with some fairly strong competition, haha!
