"Recess" as written by and Matthew James Bellamy....
Resuscitate
In my sleep
I wake to see
You are never here
And that losing uses
Another year
Face your hopes and fears
I wish
I could relieve this
There's more
Hopes that forgive
And you've used my life
And the planes and trains
Are too blame
For tempting us
To refrain
And to cut the cord
And dis everyone
Are but truce absurd
I wish
I could believe
There was more
Hopes that forgive
And you kissed my life
Hopes that forgive
Hopes that forgive
Hopes that forgive
And you kissed my life

    General CommentI can't believe nobody ever commented on this. It's been here for 3 years, and it's a great song. Although these lyrics are horribly wrong.

    Recessitate
    in my sleep.
    Awake to see
    you're never here.
    And the losing yields
    another year
    facing hopes and fears.

    And i wish
    I could believe there was more.
    Hope suffocating,
    and you've used my life.

    And the planes and trains
    are to blame
    for tempting us
    to refrain.
    And to cut the cord,
    and dis every word.
    All the truth's absurd.

    And i wish
    I could believe there was more.
    Hope suffocating,
    and you've kissed my life.

    (And i wish
    I could believe there was more.)
    Hope suffocating,
    hope suffocating,
    hope suffocating
    and you've missed my life.

    That said, I have no idea what it all means.

    General CommentAbout a long distance relationship. Missing someone but not able to see them. After a while, they break up because of the distance and then he remembers her.

    General CommentIf anyone has ever read Frankenstein or the Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelly, the freaky guitar riffs at the end remind me of the monster being brought to life. The Hope part, which I take as hopes are to kill, kind of reflects the dismissal of the hopes that Victor Frankenstein had for his creation before he realized what a horrible mistake he had made.

    Song MeaningFirst of all...I love this song. Muse is amazing

    I think the song is about someone who has been depressed and is thinking "what's the point of life? You just die in the end". And the person believes that you live, you die, and that's the end (I actually believe that), and is wishing that he could believe there was something more, but can't, because he knows there's not.
