Muse – Hyper Music lyrics

Your golden skies feed my role
In this forgotten space race under my control
Who's returned from the dead?
Who remains?

You know I don't want you and I never did
I don't want you and I never will

You wanted for more than I was worth
And you think I was scared
And you needed proof
Who really cares anymore?
Who restrains?

You know I don't love you and I never did
I don't want you and I never will

    Matt said that the song it's about "Wanting to destroy a person you've loved" He also said in another interview: "This one really rocks out, it's really full-on but the lyrics are just plain negative, just pure anger and disregard for affection, the opposite of "Bliss". It's actually linked to a book I read called "Hyper Space", which is about how all the laws of nature and physics combine in the 10th Dimension in pure mathematics to form one main theme" Could be about the same person as in "Hate This and I'll Love You" and "Uno". Someone who was associated with the band before they made it, who Matt had reason to dislike.Other readings of the song's lyrics have developed a hypothesis that this song is of an anti-religious nature. The lyrics could be a narrative from a messianic figure such as Jesus Christ. "Golden lies" could be those of priests, rabbis, etc. who "feed [God's] role" in the world. The lies not being that God/Jesus exists, after all he says "Who's returned from the dead? Who remains?" (somewhat rhetorical questions); the lies are more likely to be that he was here to save mankind, "I don't love you and I never did". The second verse deals with his reason for not wanting us, "You wanted more than I was worth" - a superhuman messiah that has evidently not saved us from our sins; "And you think I was scared" being a reference to Jesus' apparent fear of his upcoming crucifixion, in the Garden of Gethsemane (Mark 14, Luke 22: 43-44); "And you needed proof", something which our modern secular and scientific age begs for and which there is very little in any religion's defence. "Who really cares any more?" - it is over, God does not love us, he does not care, he has forsaken us and hence the suffering we see across the world.
