"Micro Cuts" as written by and Matthew James Bellamy....
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
Destroying puppet strings
To my soul

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

I've seen what you're doing
Destroying puppet strings
To my soul

    General CommentTo me the song is about how modern society is making people souless. If you imagine that a soul is the devine part of us, it's where our love and personally live. The 'Micro Cuts' are the tiny slices things like television and the media make to the link between ourselves and our souls. The 'red hands' are from the doctor making the slices in your brain that disconnects you from your soul - kind of like the experiments in Philip Pullman's 'His Dark Materials' books. Everyone's souls are 'weeping from above' as they have been cut away from us. The 'whimpering love' is because now he has no soul he can't love anyone anymore and it makes the person he should have falling in love with cry because he is dead inside. The 'micro cuts' are barely noticable, just a slight irritation like a fork squeaking on a plate, but over time they result in disconnection from your higher self and becoming a media zombie.

    So carry on listening to good music and switch off the television!!

    TV is the opiate of the masses and this song is basically Matt screaming out against it and how angry it makes him.

    Love it!
