Plug In Baby


I´ve exposed your lies, baby
The underneath is 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
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
My plug in baby
In unbroken virgin realities
Is tired of living

And I´ve I´ve seen your loving
Mine is gone
And I´ve been in trouble

Extra information


Plug in baby was the first single of Origin of symmetry, and has a video. Muse is playing in a house and you see two girls who’re some kind of robots.

Every time someone asks Matt what his Plug In Baby is, he always gives a different answer.

Matt: “My plug in baby is my own physical body. I´m using it objectively a bit more these days. I´m not in it; I´m sort of using it. I can´t explain what I mean. I make it do things now that I used to be worried about. What is it? I don´t know. It´s like I am my own ventriloquist. Oh, I can´t remember. Help me! “
Dom: “You´ve said it before. You´ve said, ´Blah, blah, blah, and that´s my plug in baby”.
Matt: “I´ve explained what the meaning of it is, but I don´t know what it is. It´s definitely myself, I think. [to Dom] Do you think we´ve lost it in the last few weeks? Just fucking blown it? “

Matt: "You know how it would be really cool if we could genetically engineer puppies that never grow old? Plug in Baby is about that."
I´ve heard on MTV that he said this at a dinner where they were talking about genetics, and that´s when he got the idea for the song. He said that these genetically engineered puppies could be used to satisfy people´s sexual needs.
tnx to [BliSS]

Or he tells it’s about his guitar, or his pet, or his computer,…

Official video

I don’t think there’s a real meaning behind this video. The director must have thought: “Plug In Baby, sounds like a mix between a girl and a computer, so why not combining them?” The girls in the video are some kind of robots. At the end a robogirl gets sucked up by a toaster.

Note: have you ever thought about it how it’s possible that a robot can survive in water?

NeW BoRn : This One Got me into the band i mean listn to the guitar intro it says it all
ˇAspirex!: Has anybody heard Sexy Boy by Air? Well it happens to be my least favorite song EVER. So, you can appreciate my concern when I first heard this and heard such a similar bassline. However, somehow, I do love this song, and I still hate the Air song. It´s very frantic and powerful, and just has some great melodies. (Could Air fans please not abuse me about this).
webmaster: You also thought on ´sexy boy´ by Air? Same here.
sam!: well im a plain and simple guy, so i think the songs about getting fed up with women cos they aint perfect, so he gets a plug in baby instead! cos they dont argue! (oh and he prefers plug in babies cos theyre virgins dont ya know ) matts opinion not mine, im not a perfectionist
Zara: One of the best Muse songs! well i think so anyway! :D When i first heard this i got into Muse! And im glad! They are now my fav band! :)
tom: this one kinda got destroyed for me after watching some 13 year olds murder it at a school battle of the bands, but i like matt´s comment about genetically engineering puppies that never grow old. that would rule.
pegasus: I love this song. It is my favourite Muse song and has a lot of meaning for me. It´s also the first Muse song i heard and the one that got me into the band. The thing i love about the song is the way Matt sings the chorus. That no
