Beside that line, there aren't any references to the Holocaust. And I'm not sure that same line is referring to that.

It's obviously not referring to the Holocaust but we all are familiar with it as a coined phrase.

So like four people including myself actually like it? This means it's a great song if I've learned anything from this board.

But honestly, I don't really care myself. It's the moment when everyone will have the same opinion that terrifies me.

Are you not? The bass line reminded me a lot of Fury.

It's one of those "you should have known" sort of deals. It doesn't really matter the intent when you're putting it down, I think the bare minimum if it's going to be mentioned is that what you're doing is cerebral and this track definitely isn't a serious track so it's irreverent.

If we all initially like it when it comes out, it means it's going to suck in about a month. If we all hate it, it's probably not that good. If only a few people like it, it's pretty great

I'll be honest, I like it!

Alright yeah it's no Stockholm Syndrome or Showbiz but fuck, they're 15 - 20 years ago of course it's not going to be anything like that!

If it gets the airplay then I can see it being fairly popular, a bit like Kings and Queens by 30STM was a few years back. People love a good woah.

People like the Holocaust a little less however so that may not go down so well with the easily offended aka everybody in this day and age.

And me, it's catchy as hell and thankfully not Dig Down 2 as I feared

I'm imagining this song where the whoa chants are gone but that section is just that awesome bass riff and Matt playing that whoa oh melody with the whammy like in the solo and at that point the song is good.

I feel like I have dozens of examples of Muse songs that get ruined by one tiny thing. The "could be wrong" bit in Resistance for example. Take that out and that's an 8/10 song.

Lyrics for convenience

Strung out, falling from the big time
Welcome to the infinite black skies
Brain-cleanse, fractured identity
Fragments and scattered debris

Thought contagion
Thought contagion

Fall down, learn when to count it out
Prop me up before I blackout (ey)
Withdraw before you’re out of time
A clean slate and buried war crimes

You’ve been bitten by a true believer
You’ve been bitten by someone who’s hungrier than you
You’ve been bitten by a true believer
You’ve been bitten by someone’s false beliefs

Thought contagion
Thought contagion

They’ll never do what you want them to
Give it up and watch them break through
It’s too late for a revolution
Brace for the final solution

Thought contagion
Thought contagion

You’ve been bitten by a true believer
You’ve been bitten by someone who’s hungrier than you
You’ve been bitten by a true believer
You’ve been bitten by someone’s false beliefs

Thought contagion
Thought contagion
Strung out, falling from the big time
Welcome to the infinite black skies
It’s too late for a revolution
Brace for the final solution

I’d just treat it like your average, obscure-ish, young alt. rock band that’s obvs influenced by 2000’s Muse. So, no, probs not.

I do think someone was right when they said it’d improve massively live though.

Fucking wish those sci-fi whammy/synth lines replaced the ‘woah’ vocals for the entire song.

Cheesy lyrics aside, this song reminds me of BH&R/Abso era Muse. Eh, I don't really get the negativity with this one. It's hardly as egregious as Dig Down or Revolt.

Revolt at least was mixed to where you could tell guitars were an important part of the band, both Dig Down and this song have buried the guitars in the mix which I think alone merits more criticism.
