"Bliss" as written by and Matthew James Bellamy....
Everything about you is how I'd want to 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

    General Commenti think this song is about envying the way a certain person is...admiring the persons morals/views/way of life...etc

    General Commenti saw an interview in which matt bellamy said that this song is about loving somebody just for who they are and not wanting anything in return.

    General CommentYes i agree with you! I think that they are made out to be too much like a radiohead rip off. Ok so Radiohead may be one of their influences, but they have a different style. It's a really unique style as well, and if anyone knows any bands similar to them i'd love to know cos i love it. When i went to see them i was totally blown away by Matt's vocals and piano, even tho i couldnt see anythin cos im so short, i could hear it, and that was enough to make it an amazing gig.

    General Commentwell personally i think this is more about admiring someone and realsing that they're just a bit 2 perfect, and admiration turns into envy which turns into hatred

    General Commentwow, three pages of comments and all of them entirely missing the point.
    the song is clearly about Matthew Bellamy's love and admiration for his idol, Thom Yorke.
    now go and read the lyrics again...it all makes sense now, doesn't it?

    cheers.

    General CommentThis song may have the most incredible lyrics in human history. This song is the prelude of "Thoughts From A Dying Atheist." It is basically about consciousness. If you really think about it...lets just suppose that we have have eternal consciousness and we live beyond this physical life...that is one of the scariest propositions ever. Think about it...it never ends...goes on forever. Trapped in consciousness.

    What Matt is hoping for in this song is to be absorbed by "god" and its love and joy. Consciousnes...especially eternal consciousness is a very frightening thing. Now, fast forward to TOADA...that is the antithesis of this song. Instead of eternal consciousness, you die and the lights turn out. Which one is better?
