"Jimmy Kane" as written by and Matthew James Bellamy....
Jimmy Kane can't sleep at night
Sex in pain
Keeps me alive
Keeps me alive

Your can't confuse yourself
Mimicking no one else
Your can't fake it
You will never make it
Your can't confuse yourself
Mimicking no one else
Your can't fake it
You will never make it
Yeah

Your to pay
For everything
Sex in pain
Keeps me moving
Keeps me

Your can't confuse yourself
Mimicking no one else
Your can't fake it
You will never make it
Your can't confuse yourself
Mimicking no one else
Your can't fake it
You will never make it
Yeah

    General Commentits a very early song so excuse them, its not bad.
    i like the base line, crazy funk!
    the lyrics are hard to interpritate, sounds like a person who has insomnia "can't sleep at night" and lives at night enjoyin drugs and sex "sex is pain, keeps me alive", however, they are detached from reality due to the lifestyle "you can't confuse yourself
    we're making no one out ", and are being put under pressure to succeed in life "you will never make it" "you're to blame for everything "...thus the pressure of reality cause the cycle of sex and drugs at night.

    General CommentI think this is a bit freaky this song, even for muse. Very drugged up sound to it, don't you think? The kind of thing you'd sing when you're totally drunk and think you're getting meaningful about....well sex and pain keeping you alive. :P

    General CommentI think it's about being really screwed up.

    General Comment1st it is not a very good song.

    i see it as a biblcel story kane as in "kane and habel" kane killed his brother habel in the bible'
    and as for jimmy (might be morrison or hendrix) looks like he is afraid of living without a god. so he blame's and trying to create confusion in the lyrics '
    'the lyrics were written from a point of view of the victim ( habel)

    General CommentIt's someone very messed up talking to himself.

    One of Muse's worst songs, I think. That, and Con-Science, and Fillip.

    Right, I agree with Fillip being terrible, but Con-Science is amazing! Jimmy Kane is good, because it makes me laugh. :D
