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
I'm breaking out
Escaping now
Feeling my faith erode

Hysteria is the eighth track on Muse's third album, Absolution. It was released as a single on 1 December, 2003, reaching #17 on the UK Singles Chart.

According to Matt, the song is about desire and the 'forbidden fruit'. The song is also notable for its bassline, which was first written in 2001 and used as a soundcheck before finding its way onto this song. When played live, it is often preceded by Interlude, just as on the album.
