“Won’t Stand Down” is the comeback single by Muse released on January 13, 2022.

On December 26, 2021, frontman Matt Bellamy revealed a snippet of the song on his Instagram stories, specifically the chorus, while driving with his son.

“Won’t Stand Down” is notable for the dramatic change in sound, stepping back from pop motifs to their heavier roots. Having taken the ‘80s aesthetic to its Weird Science extreme on 2018’s Simulation Theory, Bellamy told NME in 2020,

I like the idea of totally resetting and going back to where we come from… as in, physically moving back to our hometown and getting back to how we used to be at square one.

Lyrically, Muse take up iconic elements that characterised songs like “The Handler” and “MK Ultra”: an intimate uprising and revolution. There’s an internal and personal battle underway, where the protagonist has become the victim of a “user and abuser” situation.

As for the style, the use of heavy riffs, electronic elements, powerful falsetto vocals and harmonic minor scales can remind of Absolution and suggest vibes of the more recent album Drones.

Lyrics

[Verse 1: Matt]
I never believed that I would concede and let someone trample on me
You strung me along, I thought I was strong, but you were just gaslighting me
I’ve opened my eyes, and counted the lies, and now it is clearer to me
You are just a user, and an abuser, living vicariously

I never believed that I would concede and get myself blown asunder
You strung me along, I thought I was strong, but now you have pushed me under
I’ve opened my eyes, and counted the lies and now it is clearer to me
You are just a user, and an abuser, and I refuse to take it

[Chorus: Matt]
Won’t stand down
I’m growing stronger
Won’t stand down
I’m owned no longer
Won’t stand down
You’ve used me for too long, now die alone

[Verse 2: Matt]
Now I’m coming back, a counterattack, I’m playing you at your own game
I’m cutting you out, a shadow of doubt
Is gonna hang over your name
I’ve opened my eyes, I see your disguise
I will never see you the same
I know how to win, before you begin
I’ll shoot you before you take aim

Now I’m coming back, a counterattack
A psychological war
I’m cutting you in, I’m under your skin
Now I’m gonna settle the score
I’ve opened my eyes, I see your disguise
I will never see you the same
I know how to win, before you begin
I’ll shoot you before you take aim

[Chorus: Matt]
Won’t stand down
I’m growing stronger
Won’t stand down
I’m owned no longer
Won’t stand down
You’ve used me for too long, now die alone

[Interlude: Chris]
(Won’t stand down)
(Breaking out)
(Won’t stand down)

[Chorus: Matt]
Won’t stand down
I’m growing stronger
Won’t stand down
I’m owned no longer
Won’t stand down
You’ve used me for too long, now die alone

[Outro: Chris]
(Won’t stand down)
(Won’t stand down)
