Distorted instrumental interlude between Falling Away with You and Hysteria. The interlude samples the chord progression of the popular piece 'Adagio for Strings', by American composer Samuel Barber, on guitar with an extremely heavy fuzz effect.

It bears similarity to King Crimson's "In the court of the Crimson King".


If we listen to Absolution, Interlude sounds like it's more an outro for Falling Away With You. However, since its first live appearance during The Resistance tour in 2009, it is used as an intro for Hysteria, and played regularly ever since.
