Liquid State
by Muse

Album: The 2nd Law (2012)
  • Like the previous 2nd Law track "Save Me," Muse bassist Chris Wolstenholme wrote this about his alcohol addiction. He told NME: "Liquid State was written about the person you become when you're intoxicated and how the two of them are having this fight inside of you and it tears you apart."
  • Taking the lead and playing his songs to the band was a step up for Wolstenholme. He told The Sun: "After five albums of one songwriter, suddenly the roles changed for those songs. It was hard having to take the lead a little more."
