Information

Performed for Muse's 1997 Sawmills demo, Escape Your Meaningless was an early version of Escape.

The name obviously comes from the lyrics of the song, seen below.

The song was "remade" on the Muse EP

Lyrics

You would say anything

And you would try anything To escape your meaningless And your insignificance You're uncontrollable And we are unlovable And I don't want you to think that I care I never would, I never could again

Why can't you just love her? Why be such a monster? You bully from a distance Your brain needs some assistance But I'll still take all the blame 'Cause you and me are both one and the same And its driving me mad And its driving me mad

I'll take back all the things that I said I didn't realize I was talking to the living dead And I don't want you to think that I care I never would, I never could again

You would say anything And you would try anything To escape your meaningless And your insignificance
