Link it to the world
Link it to yourself
Stretch it like a birth squeeze
The love for what you hide
For bitterness inside
Is growing like the new born
When you've seen, seen too much
Too young, young
Soulless is everywhere

Hopeless time to roam
The distance to your home
Fades away to nowhere
How much are you worth?
You can't come down to earth
You're swelling up
You're unstoppable
Cos you've seen
Seen too much
And too young
Young
Soulless is everywhere
Destroy the spineless
Show me it's real
Wasting our last chance
To come away
Just break a silence
Cause i'm drifting away
Away from you

Yeah link it to the world
Link it to yourself
Stretch it like it's a birth squeeze
And the love for what you hide
And the bitterness inside
Is growing like the new born
When you've seen, seen too much
Too young, young
Soulless is everywhere
Destroy the spineless
Show me it's real
Wasting our last chance
To come away
Just break a silence
Cause i'm drifting away
Away from you
Oooohhhhaaaaaahhhhh

    I think it means when you've seen to many things when you're young you tend to get away from your home more and be distant. You'll do anything to come out on top. (Thats what i have so far)

    I think this song is about a loss of innocence. It talks about how a young person has seen and heard a lot of unpleaseant things at a young age.

    I always thought of abortion... Just because he says "stretch it like a birth squeeze" and "the bitterness inside is growing like a new born" as if he is saying that the bitterness in the world takesaway the babies life and how peoplehave no soul if they are willing to kill a baby. It's probaby not matt bellamy's intentions when writing this song, this is just what it reminds me of.

    Most muse songs are pollitical. I'll say it's more about that anger in the people in high positions that can't fix anything that's wrong with the system.

    I think it means that if you see things you weren't supposed to see when you were young something, be it hate or fear, will grow and make you feel further away from your home than you were...
    "Cause i'm drifting away, Away from you"
