There was a lot of this during this Drones era, too, tbh, but it was particularly bad back then.
I suppose that fits quite well with the fact he was "covering up" personal issues with political topics and didn't want to talk about the personal things, though.
With Drones, you can at least say that the songs fit the plot, for the most part. Of course, all art is open to interpretation, so perhaps it was a reference to certain other things.

...yeah, that song does blame the other person more than Taylor Swift. Still good for headbanging, though, if you don't listen to the lyrics.

O yah, I confessed I found the color mentions at Defector silly until I was told by someone they have a real meaning...

and I kinda do believe "your ass belongs to me now" is awkward, and I did ever since... but still, funny line, just awkward

THANK YOU! I've ALWAYS hated that & as much as I enjoy Reapers, I hated that so much, just ruins the theme for me.

However, During The Globalist in Glasgow, he removed that word and replaced it with "now". I was pleased

Anyway, Silliest Muse lyrics?

"You Fucking Motherfucker"

(On a serious note, I seen why the "colour verse" in Defector annoys people. Yeah, I get their meanings but it does feel like lazy songwriting at the same time :'). )

He did it at all 5 dates I went to as well, think he's permanently changed it. Not sure why but I know he seems to take The Globalist pretty seriously so maybe he just figured that word didn't fit with the tone.

As opposed to something like Reapers where the chorus is so ridiculous it doesn't really make any difference

I can't bloody stand the word "babe". I dumped a bloke once for calling me it even when he knew how much it annoyed me. It's used so much as a filler word in lyrics and I got right pissed off with it on my first listen to Drones. I shall replace it with "now" instead coz that works well mostly.

I second: "It's happening soon, / It's happening soon, / Its scent has been blowing in my direct-shoon."

Surprised no one seems to have mentioned: "When you Instant Message me with a promise, / I can feel it, I can tell you're gonna be / Just like meeeeee."

Or you know, all of the lyrics from that song.

Really? Great! I was just so pleased when I heard him remove it entierly during that performance. It just made it that tiny bit more awesome

Reapers? It's mad but that wordshould still get killed off

Neither can I! Hence why It annoyed me in Drones. Always hated that word & can never bring myself to say it

Also, Static Shadows. YES! I forgot all about Pink Ego Box :') That song was just...ridiculous lol

Yeah, especially The Globalist. I really wish he did his live version "It's you and me Now" on the album, to me that little change just has more effect on the whole vibe of that part of the song

I will say that the word "babe" may belong in some songs by other bands (like Def Leppard songs for example), but not in a serious Muse song about mutual nuclear annihilation and the end of the world.

There are stretch rhymes (like rhyming "saw" with "go" in MOTP), and then there's that.

I didn't mention it because I actually don't know what song that's from.

I've been getting a lot of comments about the line in Defector, but I missed that one from Sober. Good catch!

That lyric in Map is actually 'everything I sow' but yeah, the point still stands regarding Fillip
