Pink Ego Box


It's gonna be ok
Can’t afford another day
At 50 bytes per second

I’ve never seen your face
I’ve never heard your voice

But I think I like it
When you instant message me
With a promise
I can feel it
I can tell you're gonna be
Just like me

My eyes are gonna strain
My heart is feeling pain
At 50 beats per second

I’ve never seen your eyes
I’ve never heard your lies

But I think I like it
When you instant message me
With a promise
I can feel it
I can tell you're gonna be
Just like me
Just like me

You tell
You tell
You turn on me

Extra information


Also known as 'Instant Messenger', but in this version you don't hear the ´you've got post´ in the beginning.

It's about having a virtual relationship with somebody through the internet witch an instant messenger (such as ICQ, MSN Messenger,…). But in real life you don't know eachother.

I was told that Matt has written this song for his ex-girlfriend (who he met on the internet), but later when showbiz was released they broke up with eatchother. (indeed, rumours :)



Matthew Bellamy

Kimmy: I don´t THINK I like it, I KNOW I like it!you know, actually this whole peoples comments section is shit cos you know that with every song that has a video the comment will be ´Matt is fucking gorgeous/cute´ and so on (not that I don´t agree..) and for the rest it´ll be ´this song is great´ . am I right? But it´s a great song (i´m so cliche) and I love it. I love Matt too. He´s the cutest guy alive. I think. I haven´t met anyone who´s cuter. So far goes my story. I talk too much. Always. So I´ll just quit. bye bye now. bye.
