H8 - is the one for me
It gives me all I need
And helps me coexist
With the chill

You make me sick
Because I adore you so
I love all the dirty tricks
And twisted games you play
On me

Space dementia in your eyes and
Peace will arise
And tear us apart
And make us meaningless again

You´ll make us want to die
I´d cut your name in my heart
We´ll destroy this world for you
I know you want me to
Feel your pain

Space dementia in your eyes and
Venus will arise
And tear us apart
And make us meaningless again

    General Comment:Space dementia is a term Nasa use to describe what some astronaughts experiance when theyre in space, looking at all the planets and feeling insignificant. I think that Matt is trying to say that that is the feeling he gets when he looks at the person he is singing about. He is in awe of them, I wouldnt call it love as such but he extremely admires and respects them in a way he cant explain.......I think :)

    General Comment:could be about the whole war or dicator (like hitar) thing. while he is at war and on top of the world he feels great and would do anything (they all would) for their dictator. But when the war is over the relationship will be meaningless and the glory will be gone. Just a little insignificant suggestion . lol :)

    General Comment:H8 is a supercomputer used by NASA. It does NOT mean 'hate' and it does NOT mean 'Heil Hitler'

    General Comment:the song is like "i have no mouth and i must scream" a game about a super computer (h8) that plays sadic games on people but keep then alive, until they kill each other for mercy

    General Comment:i think it's about admiration of a certain person, so much so that he would gladly do anything for him/her: "i cut your namein my heart" an emotional statement. probably :-p

    General Comment:This is defenitely the best work of piano in any rock song, ever. The reason that Muse is my favorite contemporary band.

    General Comment:I'm sure this song is about a person he loves so much.. It's a really strong song, because there are a lot of emotions in, especially the "you make me sick because i adore you so" and "i love all your dirty tricks" show his love for someone. my english isn't very well because i'm dutch sorry :)
