Description

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 is credited as being Muse's shortest track.

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

It saw its live debut only during The Resistance tour in 2009 and has been played as an intro to Hysteria regularly ever since.
