Do we need this

Lyrics

Too many young and too many old
Too many people left you in the cold
You want everything to change
Cause you are afraid of losing

She only exists when she's on a screen
He only alives inside a machine
We want everything to change
Cause we are afraid of losing

Tell me do you really need this
Tell me do you really care
Tell me do you really need this
Tell me do you really care

I don’t think you really need this
I don’t think you really care
I don’t think you really need this
I don’t think you really care

Too many young and too many old
To many people trapped in your mould
We want everything to change
Now I’m so afraid of losing

Meaning

Is it about a war, is it about world problems, is it about internet-relationships, is about us being blind for famine,... ? Indeed, it can be about everything.

fntkms: Hellies, For me, Do We Need This ? is one of the best songs of MUSE ! It gives me chill ! I like the intro on the Ride !Just wanted to tell u this !Cheers, jérôme
webmaster: it´s like first Matt´s girlfriend isn´t sure about the relation, and on the end is like Matt isn´t sure about it.´too many people left you in the cold´, it´s like Matt had a relation with her because he felt sorry nobody cared about her, and the girl doesn´t trust the situationThe line ´she only exist when she´s on a screen´, would it be about a tv star, computerfreak?o, what am i guessing...
sam!: yeh i also thought that he said she only exists on the screen, bt apparently its on a string :s nevermind! I think its about daily life and the struggle that it is and in the end he cant be bothered so he kills himself before the end of the world which was caused by an atomic bomb made by a man with a machine and a woman with a long string. . . maybe not
webmaster: On the inlay of Random 1-8 stands: ´screen´ not ´string´
bellamys bitch (lucy): kool song
susana: i like the beggining a lot... its very cool...
[BliSS]: ..i think it´s absolutely NOT about relationships! its like u people see all muse songs as love songs, and i really dont agree..
