"Con-Science" as written by and Matthew James Bellamy....
I can't pretend
Choose how it ends
You slipped away
Questions here to stay
In feel
In soul
In feel
In soul
I can't pretend
Consumed by an end
Try bend the rules
Ripped out the clues
In feel
In soul
In feel
In soul
I can't pretend
Choose how it ends
You slipped away
Questions here to stay
In soul
In feel
In soul
In feel
In feel
In soul
In feel
In soul
In feel

    General CommentCon = opposite of pro
    So it's basically lamenting the unscientific aspect of relationships, where you're left without any answers and are incapable of rationalising; all you can do is feel the consequences in your soul.

    General CommentI wouldn't admit it but this is a stunningly beautiful song. Bellamy's vocals are absolutely chilling.
    Especially "In fee-eeee-el, In sorrrr-owww-w"

    Incredible.

    General CommentI love the way it builds up to the ending, really progressive. Not somthing that'll get you bouncing around, but not all songs are about that.

    I love this song

    General Commentive never heard this song, but I've read about it under the title 'conscience' so, judging by the lyrics, he's got a guilty conscience about doing something, or feeling something.

    probably c o m p l e t e l y wrong, but oh well.

    General CommentWell, matt Bellamy's a devout atheist, and science is generally seen as atheism's answer to religion. So titling a song "con" science seems like an odd change for him.

    Perhaps he's talking about the way science itself has become a belief system; that atheists unquestioningly believe scientists the same way theists unquestioningly believe priests (how many of us really know how the Big Bang or the theory of relativity work?)

    General CommentYou are all wrong, bitches.
    It's a song about a friend of his who had died.
    Straight from the horse's mouth.

    General CommentMany possible meanings. Most of them are probably accurate.

    I love how the little piano ostinato is stubbornly repeated and harmonised throughout the entire song. Very Baroque, to be quite fair.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of just visuals of the holocaust and just how horrendous it was.

    General CommentLove this song its so beautiful

    however these lyrics are really wrong. Its 'questions you to stay', 'in fear' and 'in sorrow' not feel and soul.
