Same. Not my favourite but one of my favourites.

The problem with the Hoodoo lyrics isn't that they're bad or anything like that. It's that whenever someone tries to convince people of Matt's amazing songwriting skills, they always point to Hoodoo, and usually even the same fucking line. It just makes it feel like people are just pointing to it because others are.

Or maybe just every muser ever just happen to like the same lyric, despite it being even more subjective and personal than the songs in general.

I like it when I put peanut butter on my nipples and let my dog lick it off.

Pretty much all of TaB follows that pattern. Which is what makes the lyrics feel lazy-ish.

Sippe:

You are right. People always point to the last lines of Hoodoo as an great example of Matt's lyrics. Doesn't make them bad though. In fact it isn't even my favourite lines of the song. I just feel as though overall as a song it is well written.

Yeah, not saying it makes them bad, just saying it makes me question whether people actually think it's great or just think it's considered great.

Personally I think showbiz, rbs and sunburn has some of my favourite lyrics.

RBS definitely holds some of my favourite lyrics, not sure about the other two though (both are good though).

I'd say my top five songs for lyrics would be something like:

Fury
Space Dementia
Ruled By Secrecy
Exo-Politics (Well, Burning Bandits)
Futurism or Debase Masons Grog or Hoodoo

Top 10 for me

Fury
Ruled by Secrecy
Space Dementia
City of Delusion
Showbiz
Megalomania
Hoodoo
Stockholm Syndrome
Cross-Pollination
Darkshines

It's also a nice top 10 overall

I'd say MOtP has also pretty good lyrics. the "why can't we see that when we bleed we bleed the same" line is up there with my favorite bits of Muse lyrics with the last chorus of Sunburn, Hoodoo in general, and the first two lines of Endlessly.
