Analysis and Explanation

The song was first played in 2001 on the Origin of Symmetry Tour with it continuing to make regular appearances throughout 2001. It got a few plays the following year before getting dropped in May 2002. It wasn't played again for 6 years until the 2008 Royal Albert Hall gig where it was played on the massive organ featured in the hall. It was played a handful of times in 2011, the most notable at the Reading and Leeds gigs where the band played Origin of Symmetry start to finish, before getting dropped yet again.

It's unknown why the song has been dropped from setlists, but the most likely is the difficulty of playing it live and how different the sound is in contrast to the main Muse sound. And considering the small amount of piano songs being played on the recent tour, it's unlikely the song will return. However, it was a setlist option for the 2017 Shepherd's Bush Empire by-request show.
