Title: Origin of Symmetry
Length: 52.93
Release Date: 2001
Record Label: Mushroom
Catalogue Number: MUSH93CD

Origin of Symmetry came first about through the changes Muse underwent during their intensive touring in promotion of Showbiz, with a lot of material written whilst touring. However, this album is more riff orientated and slightly darker than Showbiz, containing several songs which use piano or organ. Origin of Symmetry was intended as a more progressive rock-styled album, with different vocal styles than that of Showbiz. The ambition behind the album was to show the harder rock and eccentric elements of the band, that they felt had not been seen so far. This included bringing back a lot of music "filtered out" from Showbiz. The bass in the album is also more prominent and distorted. Some of the songs of the album draw influence from the band members' relationships suffering from the effects of them being on tour.

  • New Born Show

    Link it to the world
    Link it to yourself
    Stretch it like a birth squeeze
    The love for what you hide
    The bitterness inside
    Is growing like the new born
    When you’ve seen, seen
    Too much, too young, young
    Soulless is everywhere

    Hopeless time to roam
    The distance to your home
    Fades away to nowhere
    How much are you worth
    You can’t come down to earth
    You're swelling up, you’re unstoppable

    ’cause you’ve seen, seen
    Too much, too young, young
    Soulless is everywhere

    Destroy the spineless
    Show me it’s real
    Wasting our last chance
    To come away
    Just break the silence
    ’Cause I’m drifting away
    Away from you

    Link it to the world
    Link it to yourself
    Stretch it like it’s a birth squeeze
    And the love for what you hide
    And the bitterness inside
    Is growing like the new born

    When you’ve seen, seen
    Too much, too young, young
    Soulless is everywhere

    Destroy the spineless
    Show me it’s real
    Wasting their last chance
    To come away

  • Bliss Show

    Everything about you is how I wanna be
    Your freedom comes naturally
    Everything about you resonates happiness
    Now I won't settle for less

    Give me all the peace and joy in your mind

    Everything about you pains my envying
    Your soul can't hate anything
    Everything about you is so easy to love
    They're watching you from above

    Give me all the peace and joy in your mind
    I want the peace and joy in your mind
    Give me the peace and joy in your mind

    Everything about you resonates happiness
    Now I won't settle for less

    Give me all the peace and joy in your mind
    I want the peace and joy in your mind
    Give me the peace and joy in your mind

     

  • Space Dementia Show

    H8 is the one for me
    It gives me all I need
    And helps me coexist
    With the chill

    You make me sick
    Because I adore you so
    I love all the dirty tricks
    And twisted games you play
    On me

    Space dementia in your eyes and
    Peace will arise
    And tear us apart

    And make us meaningless again
    You'll make us wanna die
    I'd cut your name in my heart
    We'll destroy this world for you
    I know you want me to
    Feel your pain

    Space dementia in your eyes and
    Venus will arise
    And tear us apart
    And make us meaningless again

    Ooooh...

     

  • Hyper Music Show

    Your golden skies feed my role
    In this forgotten space race under my control
    Who's returned from the dead?
    Who remains (just to spit in your face)

    You know I don't want you and I never did
    I don't want you and I never will

    You wanted for more than I was worth
    And you think I was scared
    And you needed proof
    Who really cares anymore?
    Who restrains (just to spit in your face)

    You know I don't love you and I never did
    I don't want you and I never will

     

  • Plug In Baby Show

    I've exposed your lies, baby
    The underneath no big surprise
    Now it's time for changing
    And cleansing everything
    To forget your love

    My plug in baby
    Crucifies my enemies
    When I'm tired of giving
    My plug in baby
    In unbroken virgin realities
    Is tired of living

    Don't confuse
    Baby you're gonna lose
    Your own game
    Change me
    And replace the envying
    To forget your love

    My plug in baby
    Crucifies my enemies
    When I'm tired of giving
    My plug in baby
    In unbroken virgin realities
    And tired of living
    And I've seen your loving
    Mine is gone

    And I've been in trouble

     

  • Citizen Erased Show

    Break me in, teach us to cheat
    And to lie, cover up
    What shouldn't be shared
    All the truth's unwinding
    Scraping away at my mind
    Please stop asking me to describe

    For one moment
    I wish you'd hold your stage
    With no feelings at all
    Open minded
    I'm sure I used to be so free

    Self expressed, exhausting for all
    To see and to be
    What you want and what you need
    The truth's unwinding
    Scraping away at my mind
    Please stop asking me to describe

    For one moment
    I wish you'd hold your stage
    With no feelings at all
    Open minded
    I'm sure I used to be so free

    For one moment
    I wish you'd hold your stage
    With no feelings at all
    Open minded
    I'm sure I used to be so free

    Wash me away
    Clean your body of me
    Erase all the memories
    They will only bring us pain
    And I've seen, all I'll ever need

     

  • Micro Cuts Show

    Hands are red with your blame
    Megaphone screaming my name
    Whimpers someone I should've loved
    Souls weeping above

    I've seen what you're doing to me
    Destroying puppet strings
    To our souls

    Micro waves me insane
    A blane cuts in your brain
    Sounds like forks on a plate
    Blackboard scratched with hate

    I've seen what you're doing to me
    Destroying puppet strings
    To our souls

     

  • Screenager Show

    Who's so phoney and always surrounded
    Stop your screaming, no-one can hear
    All the scars on your skin, post no bills

    Who you were
    Was so beautiful
    Remember who... who you were

    Hide from the mirror, the cracks and the memories
    Hide from your family, they won't know you now
    For all the holes in our soul host no thrills

    Who you were
    Was so beautiful
    Memories who... who you were

     

  • Dark Shines Show

    Passing by
    you light up my darkest skies
    You'll take only seconds to draw me in
    So be mine
    and your innocence I will consume

    Dark shines
    Bringing me down
    Making my heart feel sore
    Because it's good

    Hold your hands
    up to your eyes again
    Hide from the scary scenes,
    supress your fears
    So be mine
    and your innocence I will consume

    Dark shines
    Bringing me down
    Making my heart feel sore
    Because it's good
    Your dark shines
    Bringing me down
    Making my heart feel sore
    Because it's good

     

  • Feeling Good Show

    Birds flying high you know how I feel
    Sun in the sky you know how I feel
    Reeds driftin' on by you know how I feel

    It's a new dawn
    It's a new day
    It's a new life
    For me
    And I'm feeling good

    Fish in the sea you know how I feel
    River running free you know how I feel
    Blossom in the tree you know how I feel

    It's a new dawn
    It's a new day
    It's a new life
    For me
    And I'm feeling good

    Dragonfly out in the sun
    you know what I mean, don't you know
    Butterflies all havin' fun you know what I mean
    Sleep in peace when day is done
    That's what I mean

    And this old world is a new world
    And a bold world
    For me

    Stars when you shine you know how I feel
    Scent of the pine you know how I feel
    Freedom is mine
    And I know how I feel

     

  • Megalomania Show

    Paradise comes at a price
    That I am not prepared to pay
    What were we built for?
    Could someone tell me please

    The good news is she can't have babies
    And won't accept gifts from me
    What are they for?
    They'll just grow up and break the laws you've loved

    Take off your disguise
    I know that underneath it's me
    Who are you oooh

    Useless device it won't suffice
    I want a new game to play
    When I am gone - it won't be long
    Before I disturb you in the dark

    And paradise comes at a price
    That I am not prepared to pay
    What were we built for?
    Will someone tell me please

    Take off your disguise
    I know that underneath it's me

  • Futurism Show

    Ignorance pulls
    Apostasy and apathy still rules
    Yeah you know it's cool
    Just suck and see
    A future turns us into silent gods
    And I won't miss you at all

    Grounded
    Boxed in
    Like the evil in your veins
    Grounded
    Boxed in
    I am stuck with you

    Fate can't decide
    Alignment of the planets in your hands
    Come on crush our plans
    Just suck and see
    A future that won't let you disagree
    And I won't miss you at all

    Grounded
    Boxed in
    Like the evil in your veins
    Grounded
    Boxed in
    I am stuck with you

    Feel it, hear it, apathy
    See it, be it, you'll see
