Cave

Lyrics

Leave me alone, it's nothing serious.
I'll do it myself, it's got nought to do with you
And there's nothing you could do.

You can see it and you can almost hear it too,
You can almost taste it, it's nought to do with you
And there's still nothing that you could do.

So come in my cave
and I'll burn your heart away.
Come in my cave,
and I'll burn your heart away.

Please close your ears and try to look away
So you'll never hear a single word I say
and don't ever come my way.

Leave me alone, it's nothing serious.
I'll do it myself, it's got nought to do with you
And there's still nothing you could do.

So come in my cave, and I'll burn your heart away.
Come in my cave,
and arrest me for my mistakes. Yeah.

Extra information

Meaning

īThe idea for īCaveī came from that rubbish American book, īMen are from mars, women are from venusī,ī explains Matt, lighting up a comforting cigar, after we abandon the West Wycombe Caves to their bats and waxwork dummies. īThereīs this bit about how men go into a cave when they get stressed and I think thatīs probably true, although, personelly, I tend to let it out. I did have a bit of a tantrum in my hotel bathroom last night - but I managed to repair the toilet, so thatīs OK.ī

People's comments

Lynds: One of my top three Muse songs...great lyrics and a fantastic ending.
Fillip: I just want to say: what a build-up towards the end! Great!
Tiffany: its the best song i ever heard!!
holyday: Very interesting and very cool song...itīs said to be one of the most boring tracks fort Matthew... maybe because itīs very long and tiring to play
[BliSS]: yeah or maybe because he has been playing it so many times.. =)tis the same for me.. i used to listen to it several times a day (...), now i always skip it when playing showbiz
jess: I think this is about feeling that people dont understand you so not to bother when they cant relate to how you feel. I think it is saying that dont try and help because i dont want your help kinda thing, and because of what youīve done to me you dont deserve to feel good about helping.
cross: cave is one of there best songs especially the ending and the piano solo. ive felt like this so many times
