"Spiral Static" as written by and Matthew James Bellamy....
Who's ever known
How much to moan and groan
And quiver inside
He needs to give you
Everything you need
Is it enough

You're running out of time
As it grows in your eye
Feel broken inside you feel

Sigh, static moans
A storm growing strong
And it's coming my way
Still she gives you
Everything you need
Is it enough

You're running out of time
As it grows in your eye
You'll feel broken inside
You'll feel
And I'll feel broken inside you

    General CommentIndeed. Awesome song. I just heard it for the first time. It's actually called 'Spiritual Static', not 'Spiral Static' :)

    General CommentHuh? This is weird. Just looked at the box again. The booklet says 'spritual static', but on the back of the box it says 'spiral static' :S

    General CommentI love this! It really is great if you blast it out as loud as you can.

    It's definately called Spiral Static, I have a newer version and it doesn't say Spiritual Static anywhere on the case or the booklet.

    As far as the lyrics are concerned...a guy who neglects a girl emotionally perhaps?...sorta gives that impression.

    General Commentsounds to me almost like prostitution or something. a guy going to a call girl because he needs sex to feel better, she's just as broken as him and he wonders if she can give him enough. in the end both will feel just as broken because the guy could've cheated on his girlfriend, wants sex just to feel worthy, feel better, etc. and the girl gave him sex because it's technically her job, and who's to say she's even in the business because she wants to be in it?

    it's definitely Spiral static -- i've never seen it as "Spiritual" and in the lyrics it says "spiral".

    General CommentI think its about a relationship in which the girl expects too much from the boy, while the boy doesn't really appreciate what she does for him. It probably devolves into just a mess of a relationship because of those problems.

    General Commenti think it may be about the singer who is witnessing a couple in a realationship thats about to end. For exapmle, when he says "he needs to give you" and "still she gives you" he is talking to the girl and the guy in the relationship, respectively. Other than those lines, he is talking about the relationship in general, and how he is witnessing it about to end.

    "Who's ever known how much to moan and groan, and quiver inside"
    This could be asking who knows what one should feel under such circumstances, being the imminent breakup.

    "You're running out of time...as it grown in your eyes...feel broken inside"
    Here he is saying that the couple may be beginning to realize the end of the relationship is near, the realization that its over is growing in their eyes and they feel broken inside.

    "A storm growing strong and its coming my way"
    This could possibly mean that the couple could make it a messy breakup and may get the singer involved somehow.
