Guided by Voices – Everybody Thinks I'm A Raincloud (When I'm Not Looking) Lyrics 13 years ago
I think it is about being depressed, but he sees hope in a certain someone. When everything seems hopeless he "can't forget about a world where every beam [he] chooses is shining alone on you"

Muse – The Small Print Lyrics 14 years ago
The original title was "Action Faust" which pertains to a play by Goethe called Faust. Read that and you'll understand more about this song.

It is basically the Devil talking about a contract he made with the character Faust. The "Small Print" in the contract is where they came up with this title. Faust sold his soul to the devil if the devil would be his slave during Faust's life. Faust would, in turn, have to be a slave to the devil in the afterlife.

Faust sold his soul to the devil for his earthly desires, but was not completely satisfied at his death. This song is written from the Devil's perspective.
