Muse – Micro Cuts lyrics

Hands are red with your blame
Megaphone screaming my name
Whimpers someone I should've loved
Souls weeping above

I've seen
What you're doing to me
Destroying puppet strings
To our souls

Micro waves me insane
A blade cuts in your brain
Sounds like forks on a plate
Blackboard scratched with hate

I've seen
What you're doing to me
Destroying puppet strings
To our souls

    This song was inspired by a wine fueled hallucination Bellamy had after watching a documentary on the subject of mind control. The dream contained an alien desert where giant triangular blades swung from the sky and pierced his brain in search of information. Bellamy says "I was having these strange hallucinations of this triangular blade, really silver metallic, razor sharp. I was in this landscape, arid, grey, dead with an endless horizon and I was trying to dodge these blades that were flying about everywhere. They'd go into my head and I could feel them cutting into my brain... Then I went to the doctor and he told me to drink more water and that was that. Micro cuts are cuts into your being that you can't see or avoid".
