  • Oh baby, don't you know I suffer?
    Oh baby, can you hear me moan?
    You caught me under false pretenses
    How long before you let me go?

    Ooh
    You set my soul alight
    You set my soul alight

    Glaciers melting in the dead of night
    And the superstars sucked into the super massive (you set my soul alight)
    Glaciers melting in the dead of night
    And the superstars sucked into the super massive (you set my soul)

    I thought I was a fool for no one
    Oh baby, I'm a fool for you
    You're the queen of the superficial
    And how long before you tell the truth?

    You set my soul alight
    You set my soul alight

    Glaciers melting in the dead of night
    And the superstars sucked into the super massive (you set my soul alight)
    Glaciers melting in the dead of night
    And the superstars sucked into the super massive (you set my soul)

    Super massive black hole
    Super massive black hole
    Super massive black hole
    (Super massive black hole)

    Glaciers melting in the dead of night
    And the superstars sucked into the super massive
    Glaciers melting in the dead of night
    And the superstars sucked into the super massive

    Glaciers melting in the dead of night
    And the superstars sucked into the super massive (you set my soul alight)
    Glaciers melting in the dead of night
    And the superstars sucked into the super massive (you set my soul)

    Super massive black hole
    Super massive black hole
    Super massive black hole

  • Blake from WisconsinI've never actually seen the movie before, but am a big fan of Muse. The song is okay, but it overshadows the best ones on the album, like Knights of Cydonia or Starlight.
  • Emma from Kingston, EnglandFeeling Good isn't an original Muse song, it was written by English singer-songwriters Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse for the 1965 musical The Roar of the Greasepaint - The Smell of the Crowd. It's been covered by tons of people although I do like the Muse version.
  • Jessica from Richmond, VaI think Liam's wrong. He's clearly singing about some kind of twisted romance.
  • K from Nowhere, OnI don't think that. I think the books were great, the Twilight movie was crap, the New Moon movie was awesome, and half the songs on the soundtracks aren't that amazing. This isn't one of them. I love this one, and I love the one in New Moon, I Belong to You.
  • Emma from Adelaide, Australiathe music of the twilight soundtrack is actually quite good but the movies (and books)are terrible
  • Zachary from State College, PaIf I may, my interpretation of this song is of having to deal with someone with an over inflated. I know that to some it may not seem to be much (especially compared to some of Black Holes and Revelations' other song that deal with, like, big government conspiracy theories, aliens, and assassins, among other things), but I believe that the overinflated ego could very well belong to, say, a politician. (I have very anti-gov't leanings, by the way)
  • David from Dunfermline, United KingdomLiberty. feeling good was not originally muse and has been covered by many others
  • K from Nowhere, OnGotta say, compared to the book, the movie did suck. (LOL, there's some irony for you.) Something about this song made it fit perfectly into the baseball scene. I think it's fun enough (I'm lacking better words) for the game, and just dark enough to tell us what will happen soon.
  • Ashleigh from ?????, MoI agree. I'm a Twilight fan. (though I have to admit they ttly screwed up the movie. It kinda sucked. But it's twilight so I watch it neway.) I bought the soundtrack, loved it. But I wouldn't call myself a Muse fan until I've heard more of their music. I'm just a girl who thinks they're cool. But whoa ppl. Chill.
  • Liberty from Somewhere, In Audrey, Adam did sing a Muse song one week. It's called Feeling Good and its from Origin of Symmetry.(Sorry, to anybody who hates american idol.)
  • Liberty from Somewhere, InI love this song. I'm not mad that it was in Twilight because it was perfect for the scene. But I'm annoyed by people who are like, "Oh, I LUV Muse cause one of their songs was in Twilight." At least listen to some of their other music first.
  • Dc from ???, DcWow. Twilite sux, and doesn't deserve this song. play something by taylor swift. muse shouldn't have been embarrased like that.
  • Audrey from Peace, Althis song is really good
    dont be mad at me if you hate american idol, but i think Adam couldve sung this well
  • Nady from Adelaide, Australiai just get a bit excited when it comes to muse...my personal gods.
  • Nady from Adelaide, Australiait only annoys me when people say "omg i effing love this song IT WAS IN TWILIGHT EEEEEEE!!" im just sick of it thats all. i just wish some things stayed sacred and untouched by commercialism. it just p*sses me off how all these 14 yr old twilight fans think they're die hard muse fans because they heard 1 song in a movie. grates my goat it does
  • Jess from Cobram, Australiaummm twilight didnt ruin this song. it was put onto the movie because the auther stephanie meyer happens to be a massive MUSE fan and the director thought it would b great to have a MUSE song on there to please stephanie.
    MUSE is awsum and so is twilight!!!
  • Nady from Adelaide, Australiabloody twilight its ruined everything!!!lets hope muse stay sacred
  • Rosalie from New York, NyThis song was in the Twilight baseball scene! I love it!
  • Kelsey from Brandon, FlThis song is amazing
  • Emma from Brooklyn, Nyaaaaahh!!!!! this song is on the twilight soundtrack!!!!!!!!!!! i love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Nady from Adelaide, Australiathis is a pretty wicked song:)One of Muse's sexiest by far
  • Alayna from Somewhere, NjI don't know what this song is about, but I like it anyway! The music video is also pretty cool. :)
  • Elli from Beverly Hills, CaThis song is about Matt's obsessive girlfriend, [how long before you let me go; oh baby you know i suffer] who went out with him pretending to be someone she's not [you're the queen of the superficial; you caught me under false pretenses].
  • Ash from Mooroopna, AustraliaI dunno Liam... i dont think thats entirely true
