Muse Glorious Lyrics

Last updated: 10/04/2013 08:25:03 AM

Rose-tinted view
And satellites that compromise the truth
But I wanted more
With the cuts and the bruises
Touch my face
A hopeless embrace

Faith, it drives me away
But it turns me on
Like a strangers love
It rockets through the universe
It fuels the lies, it feeds the curse
Believes we could be

I need to believe
But I still want more
With the cuts and the bruises
Don't close the door
On what you adore

Faith, it drives me away
But it turns me on
Like a strangers love
It rockets through the universe
It fuels the lies, it feeds the curse
Believes we could be

THIS SONG! | Reviewer: Jas | 10/4/13

I love this song! Especially what the meaning behind it is.

Yeah. It's pretty much about religion and how in the modern era, with science and all, we lose our faith. And it's strange really. Because humans need to believe in something. We were born with faith. But its a shame that we are all turning to atheism.

Beauty | Reviewer: SwedishMusefan_Josefine | 4/10/12

I love this song, I never grow tired of it. It's always beautiful, astonishing & new.
I love the melancholic yet hopeful sound to it.
Specially the lyrics. I believe it's some kind of rejection towards religion for it does not satisfy enough in a certain way, yet, the attempt to understand & accept it, for God may see glory in any of us.

Interpretation of these lyrics | Reviewer: Rami Ojares | 4/20/11

The postmodern era has lost it's faith in modernistic atheism and rationalism.
Yet it is clueless about what to do about it.
It is estranged from the emotional, physical and imaginative facets of man. It is very unsatisfied yet it yearns for something deeper.

This song touches upon the concept of the glory of god, life and existence.

"But I wanted more
With the cuts and the bruises"

But true to the postmodern darkness it still falls down to hopelessness
"A hopeless embrace"

muse bonus tracks are bonus tracks for a reason | Reviewer: jack | 1/15/11

i dont think people should be tryin to get muse to release these songs as none bonus tracks because thats what makes them so good theyre totally free they arent makin them to sell the record theyre makin the songs for themselves thats why spiral static fury and glorious are the best muse songs on the respective albums

Breathtaking | Reviewer: Bananas | 6/17/10

I have been a muse fan since I was about 8, I am 13 years old now, and nothing has just, I have just deepened my love for them. After listening to EVERYTHING they have ever written, including every unreleased track, B-Sides, I have to say, this song still sometimes makes me cry at how amazing it truely is. It is my favourite of every single muse song. I am going to see them live at the end of this year for the first time, and I think it is going to be absolutely amazing.
Muse Forever :)

a gem | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/2/10

i've listened to this band for about 3-4 years now, but i've found this song now recently, and i gotta say THIS is my top favorite muse song! so much power and it feels like it's just filled up with a lot of positive energy that sends chills down your spine every time you listen to it!

muse are really fantastic | Reviewer: Falk | 4/21/10

when anyone talks about muse says that the best songs of their are black hole but the people don't know it is a orrible song of this group. black hole is very commercialy song. I prefear uprising or invincible. but also glorius is fantastic. This song give a lot of adrenaline

Fucking Pwoper Rock'n Roll | Reviewer: Alex | 3/25/10

I've been istening to muse for 11 years now, since I was four which is amazing. I'm now 15 and I have to say, after hearing every song Muse ever wrote (Including the Newton Abbot Demo and All the B-sides/Unreleased tracks) this one tops on one of the best. It's got that vibe that makes your mind wander. Muse has got to be the all time greatest fucking band in the universe.

Hidden Gems | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/2/10

I realised that this was a bonus song for the Japan CD; when I bought this particular track from iTunes, though, I fell in love - it's one of those songs that surprise you, and can metaphorically knock you out. That said, I'm surprised that Muse decided to NOT put this song as a track on Black Holes and Revelations; it fits right in with Hoodoo, Map of the Problematique, and the like.
The tabs and chords played by Muse are stupendous; just the way they play best. Hidden Gem of a song? I think so.

the best | Reviewer: Rusty | 12/9/09

I'v been listening to this awsome band since early 1995, and they have got better and better as time went on, However there most recent album "The Resistance" only has about 2-3 great songs on it, the sound and feel of it suggests they have sold out a little... but yeah, Black holes and revelations is probably one of the best albums ever written, Glorious being the second best song on the album (next to KoC)

Wow. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/1/09

I started listening to MUSE when I was 10 years old, when I heard Apocalypse Please.. that song got me into this amazing, illusive, band that just make my insides lift up inside of me every time I listen. 5 years on from then I'm still loving their music and highly anticipating The Resistance, the 30 second clips of each song on the website sound epic... However Glorious just sums up my love for the band. Matt's really outdone himself this time.

My silly imagination | Reviewer: nana | 7/5/09

After reading many interpretations and letting my mind wander, I always imagine this sci-fi movie premise when i hear this song:

it's in the future, everyone where these masks that force you to perceive the world differently, like a virtual reality that controls your five senses(at least 4) b/c some sort of horrible war or accident destroyed the earth and some computer or govt or something is sustaining life w/ automated factories and farms and whatnot. the people are blissful when they where the glasses, but it's a fake existence. so along comes the main character who meets teh girl who also feels a lack of identity and are having trouble in deciding to keep their faith in the system, which should restore Earth after generations of regrowth (nature) and industry (human), or if they should try to survive 'with the cuts and the bruises' of being self-reliant in a barren world.

But b/c the song doesn't have a resolution, just an idea 'we too could be glorious', neither does my day dream when i listen to this song.
