"Plug In Baby" as written by and Matthew James Bellamy....
I've exposed your lies, baby
The underneath, no big surprise
Now it's time for changing
And cleansing everything
To forget your love

My plug in baby
Crucifies my enemies
When I'm tired of giving
Woah, my plug in baby
In unbroken virgin realities
Is tired of living

Don't confuse
Baby you're gonna lose
Your own game
Change me
Replace the envying
To forget your love

My plug in baby
Crucifies my enemies
When I'm tired of giving
Woah, my plug in baby
In unbroken virgin realities
And tired of living
And I've seen your loving
Mine is gone

    General CommentThe meaning of the song is matt belamy's love for his guitar; how he can revel in something he's good at, sing in expression to the world if he doesn't like someone rather than saying it to their face. it lets him escape the world or 'crucify his enemies'.

    General CommentIn line with what FozzyA said, I think good song-writers/novelists/religionists deliberately preserve a vagueness in their work, so that people come up with their own meanings, and find a way to love the works for themselves. Sorry if that burst anyone's bubble. This site is great, because mostly what you get is a reflection of how people see the world. Art is an expression of feeling, which doesn't try to make a point most of the time. It seems like distinct statements tend to destroy the fascination and mystery there is with feeling. This is why so many artists are lost or suicidal, and not particularly good role models. They are naturally inconclusive. But I love them still, especially Muse.

    Song MeaningOriginally this song had different lyrics and was about virtual reality technology. It was rewritten many times to the version you see here and can be able just about anything, but I still see the virtual technology references. Later Matt admitted that he forgot what it was even about. I read all of this from MuseWiki.org

    General CommentYou all have filthy minds, please heads out the gutters!
    This song is obviously about a girl, who gives him some hassle, so he plays his guitar or his 'plug in baby'. He writes songs and plays to escape from the crashing world around him.
    Why would it be about a bleeding vibrater?
    I don't think Matt Bellamy is like that!

    General CommentI like the interpretations of guitar, dildo etc and find them interesting... my initial impression of this song is that the "plug-in baby" is a baby jesus statue which perhaps lights up or something. I mean he references crucifixion and virginity, two main aspects of the jesus story. Just my knee-jerk interpretation.

    General CommentThis song is about being gay.The first verse is about coming out, the second is about getting rimmed in a kids playground. The chorus is just bullshit. The last section are the clearest lyrics "And I've seen your loving" - looking at a lover's erection, "But mine is gone" - inside his lover's anus, "And I've been in trouble" - a reference to when homosexuality was illegal.
