"Overdue" as written by and Matthew James Bellamy....
You needed it when I was away
And no matter what I say
You'll never forget when I wasn't there
So why should I care?
I'm young, but I know when I'm aroused

You know that I care
You should've been there
You know that I care
You should've been there

It doesn't matter where I have gone
I just can't afford to
Pay for all the mistakes that you have made
It's about time I was paid
I'm young, but I know when I'm aroused

You know that I care
You should've been there
You know that I care
You should've been there

You know that I care
You should've been there
You know that I care
You should've been there

You know that I care
You should've been there
You know that I care
You should've been there

    General CommentIt ties in with Muscle Museum and is probably the dirtiest song on Showbiz. The unsupportive gf is sick of him being away playing all the time, when he gets back she won't give him any, so he finishes it.

    General CommentI had to listen to this song about 5 times before i started to like it, its very strange. The time signature is reallllly weird, and this song sticks out from the rest of the showbiz album. I think its about him cheating on some one because they've gone away or something. Or maybe its about running away from someone.
