Muse – Showbiz lyrics

[Verse 1]
Controlling my feelings for too long
Controlling my feelings for too long
Controlling my feelings for too long
Controlling my feelings for too long
Forcing our darkest souls to unfold
And forcing our darkest souls to unfold
And pushing us into self-destruction
Pushing us into self-destruction

[Chorus]
And they make me
Make me dream your dreams
And they make me
Make me scream your screams


[Verse 2]
Trying to please you for too long
Trying to please you for too long
In visions of greed you wallow
Visions of greed you wallow
Visions of greed you wallow
Visions of greed you wallow


[Chorus]
And they make me
Make me dream your dreams
And they make me
Make me scream your screams

[Verse 3]
Controlling my feelings for too long
Controlling my feelings for too long
And forcing my darkest soul to unfold
And forcing our darkest souls to unfold
And pushing us into self-destruction!
And pushing us into self-destruction!

[Chorus]
And they make me
Make me dream your dreams
And they make me
Make me scream your screams

    If you think about it, you'll remember that we often hear about how becoming famous tends to 'change' people. Thus what 'Showbiz' is about.

    Showbiz is the entire commercial world in a nut shell. It controls you in the first place, then forces you to become the darkest part of you, the very thing you've been trying to control from the beginning. It turns you into a self-destructing machine, something so close to its feelings and to itself that it could go insane at anytime.

    And just when you think you're about to loose it, 'showbiz' sets you off again, on a trail that is not yours, change you and shape your public image so that the image that people out there have of you isn't YOU anymore; it's the person that 'showbiz' has made you into.

    I think this song is ultimately about how 'showbiz' doesn't change 'us' exactly, but rather the way we are seen and portrayed to the public. And about how that pressure can make someone suffer so much they'd want to die.

    Bellamy was quoted as saying, "The song Showbiz is about how we all have an inside personality that we sort of hide from the outside." The lyrics are possibly a reference to the difficulty of hiding your inner persona, or perhaps they are about the impact performing has on your life.
