Supermassive Black Hole

Lyrics

Oh baby dont you know I suffer?
Oh baby can you hear me moan?
You caught me under false pretenCes
How long before you let me go?

You set my soul alight
You set my soul alight

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And superstars sucked into the super-massive

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the 'supermassive'

I thought I was a fool for no-one
Oh baby I'm a fool for you
You're the queen of the superficial
And how long before you tell the truth

You set my soul alight
You set my soul alight

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the 'supermassive'

Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
and the superstars sucked into the supermassive

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole

Extra information

Meaning

There has been a lot of talking about this song when it was first released. Comparisons with Britney Spears popped up, but according to Matt it was influenced by Belgian bands like Soulwax and Millionaire.


Matt drew a comparison with "women sometimes fight about stuff, and you think 'what's this all about?', and then you find out. And that's a little bit, a very broad comparison to the destruction of the Earth and the universe in relation to being attracted to discussion and destruction. That's part of our nature, you know. "Glaciers melting in the dead of night, and the superstar's sucked into the supermassive...", and that's happening as we speak. And that's the evolution, and maybe that's why we're attracted to distruction.
