Matt is very dark in his writing and he is an open Atheist so as you can see in Absolution's songs his writing is very End of the World-esque style. Matt combines the sounds of classical piano with prog rock and dance pop in Black Holes but as for his lyric writing it's really all about what crazy thing is going on in his head at the time, so it's not like you can re-create it but still that whole apocalypse thing can help you out.

Hope that helped

are you talking lyrically or musically?

my advice would be to get into the great songwriters. lennon, dylan, newman etc. and take it from there. it's pretty obvious that matt writes songs entirely around vocal melody, bar an occasional instrumental hook that they write around as a band. look for a beautiful melody. catch one and you can't go wrong.

Are you trying to be Matt Bellamy? Kinda not cool man. I understand writing about similar topics, but don't copy the guy exactly. If it helps, I'm pretty sure Bellamy writes his music and lyrics about things he cares about, not what his favorite singers and songwriters cared about.
