Bliss

Lyrics

Everything about you is how I´d wanna be
Your freedom comes naturally
Everything about you resonates happiness
Now I won´t settle for less

Give me all the peace and joy in your mind

Everything about you pains my envying
Your soul can´t hate anything
Everything about you is so easy to love
They´re watching you from above

Give me all the peace and joy in your mind
I want the peace and joy in your mind
Give me the peace and joy in your mind

Everything about you resonates happiness
Now I won´t settle for less

Give me all the peace and joy in your mind
I want the peace and joy in your mind
Give me the peace and joy in your mind

Extra information

Meaning

Bliss is the song that represents the best state of mind you can have. It’s a state of mind where you give out everything you have without any need for return. It´s also a song aimed towards someone’s youth, someone who hasn’t been exposed to stuff yet. However it should be a positive song, the lyrics give the impression that you´re envy on a person and you want to be just like him/her because s/he looks perfect to you and you´re not.

Bliss is mostly played the last one on a concert. According to Matt, it’s his favourite song, because it´s got all these 80s arpeggios and keyboards on it which remind me of some music I heard on some children’s music programme when I was five. I think I ripped it off that. And that reminds me of when I was a bit simpler, a bit more of a pleasant state

The video goes about leaving everything behind, don’t care anymore, beginning at new point. (Just like newborn)



Chris: "We have just always loved playing that song live. Even if you don't know the song it has one of those discoy feels to it but recorded in a rock way. It was one of those songs that when we play it live you always know if you are having a bad gig it will be the song that will get the crowd going".

Official video

It was originally meant that Matt would fall from the air in the earth, then through the earth and come out at the other side of the earth. But they couldn’t afford to make earth so they did something else… Matt is falling into a tube in space. When he comes out of the tube he flies lost in space, to finally burn up. The idea behind the video is to leave everything behind, starting again from zero, and about all the joy you can have.

There's a making of this videos on the Bliss dvd.

sam!: yay bliss. well ya know, this song could possibly be my favorite muse song live and most possibly in my top three best songs! the lyrics really suit the tempo and the feel the music gives off, and it all combines into one pure class song, which has been made from one simple riff, how do they do it?
Dementia Eyes: so...have someone hear a little
