"Sober" as written by and Matthew James Bellamy....
Royal Canadian blended
The spicy aroma had mended me
Matured for years and imported
Into my glass you poured it

And you're the only reason
That I remain unfrozen
Suppose it stands to reason
That you would turn on me

You're so solid
You're so solid
It burns inside of me
'Cause you're so solid
It burns inside of me

And Wild Turkey's been chosen
It's caramel nose can smell me
Arbourler/Jameson, I love you
The single malts came burning

And you're the only reason
That I remain unfrozen
Suppose it stands to reason
That you would turn on me

You're so solid
You're so solid
It burns inside of me
'Cause you're so solid
It burns inside of me

Royal Canadian blended
The spicy aroma had mended me

And you're the only reason
That I remain unfrozen
Suppose it stands to reason
That you would turn on me

You're so solid
You're so solid
It burns inside of me
'Cause you're so solid
It burns inside of me

    General CommentI think this song is about alcoholism, how for whatever reason his addiction has acted as something that has stopped him from committing suicide. "And you're the only reason, That I remain unfrozen" I think it can be asumed that the after effects of large alcohol consumption has not helped him at all, but he is still hooked to it - "Suppose it stands to reason That you would turn on me." I guess you can say that there is a split line as to what this line could be, "You're so solid." I think that when he says, 'You're so solid' he's talking about an empty bottle, his moment of joy of drinking has stopped, the bottle is empty, no liquid remains but the soild. But it could also mean that it's hard, like a hard obstalce to overcome.

    I love muse.

    General CommentI cant belive no ones said nething bout sober. U should all b ashamed!!!

    This is probs my fave Muse song cos it's the first 1 i eva heard. Methinks its about someone with a drinking problem and they're showing their love for the sweet stuff. Least that wot i think.

    General Commentits clearly abot matts hate of turkeys. his aunt bessie used to force him to eat turkey every xmas. so he covered it in alchole to cover the taste. the "Royal Canadian blended
    The spicy aroma had mended me" refers to his dad who was a mountie and used to bring back cheap whiskey for him from canada.
