Description

Matt had the idea of being lost, when you are tethered to a space station and get snipped off and floating off into space and seeing how the planet is disappearing.[1]

Matt composed The Void after watching some movies with Rich Costey, according to Matt, Costey has a projector and they had some sci-fi films from the 80s playing in the studio, and Matt liked the Synth sounds very ominous and slightly threatening sound like the work from John Carpenter, which inspired him to compose The Void.[2]

Is the closer track of Simulation Theory. It had been called by many fans the "Exogenesis Part IV" due to the ambientation and the similarities with other closer tracks like Exogenesis Part III, Redemption, Isolated System and Ruled by Secrecy.

The Void (Acoustic)

With more piano and without synths. This version contains Matt's lowest note on studio (an 2D) when he say "A STAR".

You can watch the official lyric video of this version here.

Additional information

The Qmagazine made a preview of Simulation Theory on 23th October, and they said this about the song: "Closer The Void is Muse at their over-the-top best, a blend of Bellamy's call-to-arms vocals, classical piano and ominous sci-fi soundscapes."

This song, alongside other yet unreleased songs, was leaked in a series of short 20 second video clips showing the vinyl player.

You can see the official lyric video of the song here.

Live

Matt played an excerpt with the piano on an interview the 9th November. But it has to make the live debut.

More info will be uploaded here.

Lyrics

They'll say, no one can see us

That we're estranged and all alone They believe nothing can reach us And pull us out of the boundless gloom

They're wrong They're wrong They're wrong Yeah baby, they're wrong They're wrong They're wrong

They'll say the sun is dying And the fragile can't be saved And the cold, it will devour us And we won't rise up and slay giants

They're wrong They're wrong They're wrong Yeah baby, they're wrong They're wrong They're wrong

It takes a leap of faith To awake from these delusions You are the coder and avatar A star

They'll say, no one will find us That we're estranged and all alone They believe nothing can reach us And pull us out of the boundless gloom

They're wrong They're wrong They're wrong Babe they're wrong They're wrong They're wrong
