Muse - Hysteria - Meaning of the song
This obsessive song is about a stalker who is losing his mind going after a girl. "I want you now, I'll feel my heart implode," Matt Bellamy sings.
Chris Wolstenholme's bass line from this track was voted the best of all time in a poll run by MusicRadar. Rush's instrumental "YYZ"came a very close second, followed by two entries from Queen, "Another One Bites The Dust" and "Under Pressure." MusicRadar said of the winner: "Chris Wolstenholme certainly takes center-stage with his intricate processed riff driving the singalong and providing a fat bedrock for Matt Bellamy's guitar histrionics."
The actor Justin Theroux stars in the video, where he trashes a hotel room in an outburst that would have impressed Keith Moon. No members of Muse show up in the clip, which was directed by the UK filmmaker Mat Kirkby. His other credits include the Basement Jaxx video for "Good Luck" and Adele's "Make You Feel My Love."
Hysteria - Lyrics
It's bugging me, grating me And twisting me around Yeah I'm endlessly caving in And turning inside out 'cause I want it now I want it now Give me your heart and your soul And I'm breaking out I'm breaking out Last chance to lose control It's holding me, morphing me And forcing me to strive To be endlessly cold within And dreaming I'm alive 'cause I want it now I want it now Give me your heart and your soul I'm not breaking down I'm breaking out Last chance to lose control And I want you now I want you now I'll feel my heart implode And I'm breaking out Escaping now Feeling my faith erode
