Title: Muse EP
Length: 16.9
Release Date: 1998
Record Label: Dangerous Records
Catalogue Number: DREX CDEP 103

The first record released by Muse. The EP was recorded over two days after Sawmills Studio based Dennis Smith offered the band free studio time. 999 copies of the EP were released, each with a hand numbered sticker, personally numbered by Matt. Further unnumbered copies were given to radio stations and journalists, while numbered copies were sold via mail-order and in independent record stores, including KMA in Torquay and Solo in Exeter.

The EP was recorded in 1997, mastered by February 1998, and released on the 11th May 1998 on Dennis Smith's Dangerous label. The recordings on the album differ from those later released on Showbiz, for example, "Overdue" is longer and features more choruses. As the Muse EP is highly sought after by fans and collectors, Muse EPs on eBay can reach prices in the order of several hundred GBP. Dominic Howard designed the art-work by photocopying his own face. A similar piece of art-work can be seen on a poster for "Muse" in the film 12 Monkeys.

  • Overdue Show

    You needed it when I was away
    And no matter what I say
    You'll never forget when I wasn't there so
    Why should I care?
    I'm young but I know that I'm aroused

    You know that I care
    You should have been there
    You know that I care
    You should have been there

    It doesn't matter where I have gone
    I just can't afford to
    Pay for all the mistakes that you have made
    It's about time I was paid

    I'm young but I know that I'm aroused

    You know that I care
    You should have been there
    You know that I care
    You should have been there

    You know that I care
    You should have been there
    You know that I care
    You should have been there

    You...

    We really need to change it
    And turn it over

    Cause you should have been there
    When I was aroused
    Cause you should have been there
    When I was aroused

    You know that I care
    You should have been there
    You know that I care
    You should have been there

    You know that I care
    You should have been there
    You know that I care
    You should have been there

    You know that I care
    You should have been there
    You know that I care
    You should have been there

     

  • Cave Show

    Leave me alone, it's nothing serious.
    I'll do it myself, it's got nought to do with you
    And there's nothing you could do.

    You can see it and you can almost hear it too,
    You can almost taste it, it's nought to do with you
    And there's still nothing that you could do.

    So come in my cave
    and I'll burn your heart away.
    Come in my cave,
    and I'll burn your heart away.

    Please close your ears and try to look away
    So you'll never hear a single word I say
    and don't ever come my way.

    Leave me alone, it's nothing serious.
    I'll do it myself, it's got nought to do with you
    And there's still nothing you could do.

    So come in my cave,
    and I'll burn your heart away.
    Come in my cave,
    and arrest me for my mistakes. Yeah.

     

  • Coma Show

    Confide in me
    Sustain all my apathy
    You're such a mess
    You can learn not to confess

    You will not find it in me
    Simply because I can't
    Wake up and find it in me
    I'm in a coma
    You will not find it in me
    And you'll reveal all your pains again

    We'll fall asleep
    So deeply out of reach
    For years feeling dead
    We can fall right out of bed

    You will not find it in me
    Simply because I can't
    Wake up and find it in me
    I'm in a coma
    You will not find it in me
    And you'll reveal all your pains again

    Hey, such a mess but I don't care
    Simply because I can't
    Wake up and find it in me
    I'm in a coma
    You will not find it in me
    And you'll reveal all your pains again

     

  • Escape Show

    You would say anything
    And you would try anything
    To escape your meaningless
    And your insignificance
    You're uncontrollable
    And we are unlovable
    And I don't want you to think that I care
    I never would, I never could again

    Why can't you just love her?
    Why be such a monster?
    You bully from a distance
    Your brain needs some assistance
    But I'll still take all the blame
    'Cause you and me are both one and the same
    And its driving me mad
    And its driving me mad

    I'll take back all the things that I said
    I didn't realize I was talking to the living dead
    And I dont want you to think that I care
    I never would, I never could again

    You would say anything
    And you would try anything
    To escape your meaningless
    And your insignificance
