Information

Originally called Rusty One when played because of the buzz word that Bellamy used to describe it when played "Cheers, cheers... bit rusty that one" (Rock Oz'Arènes 2002).

Stylistically, it bears more resemblance to the epic, widescreen, cinematic tone of Black Holes and Revelations, featuring extensive use of synthesisers and vocodered backing vocals. The song is bookended by faint music box melodies and whispered vocals. Later, there is a fuzz-factory solo followed by a short instrumental breakdown featuring twinkling piano, thumping bass and eerie guitar in the style of Invincible, before Bellamy's humming build it up to a final chorus with the ever-thumping drums.

In the Making of Absolution documentary, Matt talks about how by the time they got to recording Absolution, they felt Eternally Missed was one of their best songs. However, after recording the album, Matt said he did not think it would even become a b-side.

Lyrics

Chase your dreams away

Glass needles in the hay The sun forgives the clouds You are my holy shroud

I just don't care if it's real That won't change how it feels I just don't care if it's real That won't change how it feels

No it doesn't change And you can't resist Making me feel eternally missed And you can't resist And you can't resist Making me feel

Chase your dreams away Glass needles in the hay The sun forgives the clouds You are my holy shroud

And I just don't care if it's real That won't change how it feels I just don't care if it's real That won't change how it feels

No it doesn't change And you can't resist Making me feel eternally missed You can't resist You can't resist Making me feel

You can't resist Making me feel eternally missed You can't resist You can't resist Making me feel

You can't resist Making me feel eternally missed And you can't resist And you can't resist Making me feel

Chase your dreams away Glass needles in the hay The sun forgives the clouds You are my holy shroud
