Question Survival - would you like an instrumental version?

The comedy lyrics & vocals are awful.

Edit: Fair play, in the context of the album this has grown on me. But I would still like a version without the lyrics. The monster riffage should be unspoilt!!

the lyrics are horrific, but I like the way Matt is singing the song. still, since new lyrics doesn't seem to be a realistic option, I request an instrumental.

We can always rest assured that if we want to read fantastically positive stuff about Muse the Official Muse forum is the place to come... not...

Matt's vocal's are awesome. The lyrics are simple, direct and motivating. He sings with real passion. It's already on my running list. Simples.

CHEERS MUSE, you've totally smashed this one

If there was an instrumental version id use it to replace the normal version.

The vocals are some of Matt's best, and I don't really understand why people are surprised by the lyrics, as if Muse songs have ever been elaborate in their lyrical content...

Anyway, an instrumental would be cool, but not as good as the original IMO.

Scissor Sisters have produced songs a lot better than some of Muse's shit.

It's not that Muse lyrics are usually good, it's just that they're usually not this bad.

Yes. But not because I hate the lyrics, if anything they make the song as awesome as it is. I just want it for the widdle.

These probably are the worst lyrics Matt's ever written. Worse even than Sober.

I like that song.

It seems like it's trying to mimick the piano line to that song using the choir, oddly.

Yes, if it means there's no choir in it. Yes I won't shut up about that.
But also yes because I tend to like instrumentals anyway.
