Radio X flips through the Matt Bellamy songbook and picks his finest words of wisdom.

  1. “Rise up and take the power back/It's time the fat cats had a heart attack/You know that their time's coming to an end/We have to unify and watch our flag ascend.”

  3. “I want to reconcile the violence in your heart / I want to recognise your beauty's not just a mask.”

    Map Of The Problematique (2007)

  10. “Oh baby don't you know I suffer / Oh baby can't you hear me moan? / You caught me under false pretences / How long before you let me go?”
