Title: Black Holes and Revelations
Length: 48.12
Release Date: 2006
Record Label: Helium 3
Catalogue Number: HEL3002CD

Black Holes and Revelations is Muse's fourth studio album, released three years after previous album Absolution, in July 2006. The album is less classically orientated than Origin of Symmetry and Absolution, while introducing new influences including jazz, soul and R&amp;B. The album contains elements of these genres. The varied influences on the album can be traced to the intial demos and recording made in the Château Miraval studio and the later recordings in New York City, where Matt DJed in a club and the band recorded the remaining songs in the Electric Lady Studios. Inspiration for the album was taken from a wide variety of other artists, from contemporary acts such as Lightning Bolt and Rage Against The Machine, to composer Ennio Morricone and jazz singer Nina Simone.

The album is dedicated to the memory of Helen Kirk.

  • Map Of The Problematique Show

    Fear and panic in the air
    I want to be free
    From desolation and despair

    And I feel
    like everything I sow
    is being swept away
    well I refuse to let you go

    I can't get it right
    (get it right)
    since I met you

    Loneliness be over
    when will this loneliness be over

    Life will flash before my eyes
    so scattered and lost
    I want to touch the other side

    No one
    thinks they are to blame
    why can't we see
    when we bleed we bleed the same

    I can't get it right
    (get it right)
    since I lost you

    Loneliness be over
    when will this loneliness be over

  • Soldier's Poem Show

    Throw it all away
    lets lose ourselves
    because there's no one left for us to blame
    it's a shame we're all dying
    and do you think you deserve your freedom?
    how could you send us so far away from home
    when you know damn well that this is wrong
    I will still lay down my life for you
    and do you think you deserve your freedom?
    no I don't think you do
    there's no justice in the world
    there's no justice in the world and there never was

  • Assassin Show

    War is overdue
    the time has come for you
    to shoot your leaders down
    join forces underground

    Lose control
    increasing pace
    warped and bewitched
    time to erase
    whatever they say
    your people are torn
    wild and bereft
    assassin is born

    Aim, shoot, kill your leaders

    Oppose and disagree
    destroy demonocracy

    Lose control
    increasing pace
    warped and bewitched
    time to erase
    whatever they say
    your people are torn
    wild and bereft

  • Exo-Politics Show

    Open the skies over me
    I am waiting patiently
    I'll wait for a sign

    As conspiracies unwind
    will you slam shut or free your mind?
    or stay hypnotized

    When the Zetas fill the skies
    will our leaders tell us why
    fully loaded satellites
    will conquer nothing but our minds

    I am waiting patiently
    I'll wait for the sign

    Carried through the centuries
    secrets locked up
    and loaded on my back
    and it weighs me down

    When the Zetas fill the skies
    it's just our leaders in disguise
    fully loaded satellites
    will conquer nothing but our minds

    I am waiting patiently
    I'll wait for the sign

     

  • City Of Delusion Show

    Stay away from me
    build a fortress and shield your beliefs
    touch the divine
    as we fall in line

    Can I believe
    when I don't trust
    all your theories will turn to dust
    I choose to hide
    from the All Seeing Eye

    Destroy this city of delusion
    and break these walls down
    and I will avenge
    and justify my reasons with your blood

    You will not rest
    or settle for less
    until you guzzle and squander what's left
    do not deny
    that you live and let die

    Destroy this city of delusion
    and break these walls down
    and I will avenge
    and justify my reasons with your blood

     

  • Hoodoo Show

    Come into my life
    regress into a dream
    we can hide
    and build a new reality
    draw another picture
    of the life you could've had
    follow your instincts
    and choose the other path
    you should never be afraid
    you're protected
    from trouble and pain
    why
    why is this a crisis in your eyes
    come to be
    how did it come to be
    tied to a railroad
    no love to set us free
    watch our souls fade away
    and our bodies crumbling
    don't be afraid
    I will take the blow for you
    I have had recurring nightmares
    that I was loved for who I am
    and missed the opportunity
    to be a better man

  • Knights Of Cydonia Show

    Come ride with me
    through the veins of history
    I'll show you a god
    who falls asleep on the job
    how can we win
    when fools can be kings
    don't waste your time or time will waste you

    No one's gonna take me alive
    the time has come to make things right
    you and I must fight for our rights
    you and I must fight to survive

    No one's gonna take me alive
    the time has come to make things right
    you and I must fight for our rights
    you and I must fight to survive

     

  • Glorious Show

    Rose-tinted view
    And satellites that
    Compromise the truth

    But I wanted more
    With the cuts and the bruises
    Touch my face
    A hopeless embrace

    Faith
    It drives me away
    But it turns me on
    Like a stranger's love

    It rockets through the universe
    It fuels the lies and feeds the curse
    Believes we could be glorious

    I need to believe
    But I still want more
    With the cuts and the bruises
    Don't close the door
    On what you adore

    And faith
    It drives me away
    But it turns me on
    Like a stranger's love

    It rockets through the universe
    It fuels the lies and feeds the curse
    Believes we could be glorious
