It was written by band members Matthew Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme, and Dominic Howard and released on their 2004 album Absolution. The song is set in a 6/8 time signature and is composed in the keys of F major and D minor. It features primarily electric guitar and piano instrumentation, as well as a string ensemble and computer-generated sounds. The song begins with an ambitious piano intro, followed by a driving low-end rhythm and soaring guitar harmonies. Bellamy's vocal performance is dynamic, with a strong vibrato and emotive delivery. The chorus builds on the tension of the intro and bridge, featuring harmonic backing vocals and a powerful anthem hook. The song culminates in the fading strings, gradually bringing the song to its melancholic resolution.
