Black Holes and Revelations
Take a Bow calls on world leaders to take responsibility for their actions. Muse move through three musical stages: starting off as a classical piece before moving into a techno mid-section and a heavy "apocalyptic rock" ending. Initially described "a looping epic which morphs into a gothic fairytale". The chord structure moves in fourths upwards, by using the augmented fifth in between to move.
Initially called "Hex", "Take a Bow" was originally going to be at the end of the album. Read more on Last.fm.
