New Born

Lyrics

Link it to the world
Link it to yourself
Stretch it like a birth squeeze
The love for what you hide
The bitterness inside
Is growing like the newborn
When youīve seen, seen
Too much too young, young
Soulless is everywhere

Hopeless time to roam
The distance to your home
Fades away to nowhere
How much are your worth
You canīt come down to earth
Youīre swelling up - youīre unstoppable
īCause youīve seen, seen
Too much too young, young
Soulless is everywhere

Destroy the spineless
Show me itīs real
Wasting our last chance
To come away
Just break the silence
īCause Iīm drifting away
Away from you

Yeah, link it to the world
Link it to yourself
Stretch it like a birth squeeze
The love for what you hide
The bitterness inside
Is growing like the newborn
When youīve seen, seen
Too much too young, young
Soulless is everywhere

Destroy the spineless
Show me itīs real
Wasting our last chance
To come away
Just break the silence
īCause Iīm drifting away
Away from you

Extra information

Meaning

Matt: "Itīs about a semi-fear of the evolution of technology, and how in reality itīs destroying all humanity. My fear is that we canīt control it because itīs moving faster than we are, so the songs setting myself in a location in the future where the body is no longer important and everyoneīs plugged into a network. The opaning line is īlink it to the worldī, so itīs connecting yourself on a worldwide scale and being born into another reality."

Chris: "New Born I think between the three of us is probably one of our favourite tracks off Origins of Symmetry. It is a good live track. I think it one of the songs which showcases the experimental side of the band. It is not really a conventional pop song. I think a lot of the reason for choosing these songs is that we went for the heavier more direct kind of songs rather than going for anything too mellow".

Dinandtotti: Guitar riff is easy too. I play the whole song in my room. But my voice uhhmm just ainīt matts voice
Stonecold: Well itīs the first Muse song I heard.. No doubt it is the best one...Itīs what Muse is all about.. I can play the whole guitar parts but (agreeing with what Dinandtotti said) itīs almost impossible to sing it.. I think this song puts a dividing line between īMUSEī and īthe restī....
I WANNA PLUG INTO MY BABY: OH YEAH
susana: love the entry of the guitar in this song!!!! its fu**ing powerful!!!! and great song to sing too (very easy to sing! Stonecold, but ok... im a girl and bellamy has a weird voice, a beautiful voice, i mean)... nothing like we can hear on other bands...
iammattsguitar: i am a sheep. a sheep who loves this songbaa.
Lorraine: Genius, just pure genius. Love it! So good! Bloody hell, I love this band so much. The best bloody rock band in the world!!!!!! Muse rule the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stefouinette: New Born cīest vraiment la chanson de Muse que jīaime le plus : y a de ces putain de sons et dīambiances différentes...ca me transporte trop ce genre de musique...
Infra Riot: Well the keyboard ainīt that easy to play, cause you have to play the same melody with the left hand, but reversed! So Iīll just keep playing the song on bass or guitar (yes I can play the bass-line hohoho!)very amazin song, by the way
Sixthsense: The best rock band in the world!!!!!! :D:D
snowy_forever: the songs great! the only things is that its really hard to play on bass!!!!
Arbourler_Jameson: Piano bit is easy, guitar riff is easy but the bass part makes my hand cramp up. Still a top quality tune though
AMused fan : This song is brilliant , because it has this funny part when Matt goes from piano to guitar , no other band has never done that. Th video is excellent , with the light balls flowting in the video and the little girl is very cool . The coolest part is when the girl lookes angry , dark clowdes are comin and then it started to rain and Muse are getting wet. You also see Matt from very close images
