"New Born" as written by and Guy Edward John/potter Garvey....
Link it to the world
Link it to yourself
Stretch it like a birth squeeze
The love for what you hide
The 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
'Cause 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 the 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 the silence
'Cause I'm drifting away
Away from you
Oh, oh, woah

    General CommentI don't think its about an antichrist. I think its about built up anger and how one day you must release that anger. Only once you have relased this anger can you get away from the pain and be new born.

    General CommentI'm fairly sure that this song is about the internet. Mainly because I read it in an interview :0) Matt is fairly geeky so it's quite possible. The 'New Born' is the internet itself and the song discusses how young but powerful it is already.

    The video kinda presents this theme too - the little girl could be considered a personification of the internet.

    General Commentthis is my favourite muse song, it has evertything: a great organ intro, it sounds really scary!!! then a master bass riff and the drums and the voice...... really cool!! i think it´s about a kind of a future antichrist, it´s very related with the video!

    General CommentThis song is obviously about Star Wars. It describes the birth of Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia and the soulless world that they are born into due to the rise of the Empire.

    General CommentI guess I don't really see the whole future and anarchist part to this song like some have said, I think it is more talking about someone who is angry and unable to express their anger to the world, forcing it to swell inside of them. I think he is inferring that the person's anger came from when he or she was young and first began to witness all of the evil in the world, and the narrator is trying to convince this person to let out her feelings of anger and hate because it is eating at their relationship and he is "drifting away" from her.

    General CommentI think it could be about abortion... "destroy the spineless." in the beginning when it "iink it to the world, link it to yourself" it could mean fertilizing the eggs in the womb. "too young, young." could also mean abortion.

    General CommentSparks meets queen meets bowie etc..what a great combination of rock opera dynamics and drama! If you dont like this then, I'm afraid, you dont like music.
    p.s.Can you put Flamin' Lips on your data base please? They're brilliant.
