Muse – Dead Inside

Dead inside!
Revere a million prayers
And draw me into your holiness
But there’s nothing there
Light only shines from those who share
Unleash a million drones
Confine me then erase me, babe
Do you have no soul?
It’s like it died long ago

Your lips feel warm to the touch
You can bring me back to life
On the outside, you’re ablaze and alive
But you’re dead inside!

You’re free to touch the sky
Whilst I am crushed and pulverized
Because you need control
Now I’m the one who’s letting go
You like to give an inch
Whilst I am giving infinity
But now I’ve got nothing left
You have no cares and I’m bereft

Your skin feels warm to caress
I see magic in your eyes
On the outside, you’re ablaze and alive
But you’re dead inside!

Feel me now, hold me, please
I need you to see who I am
Open up to me, stop hiding from me
It’s hurting babe
Only you can stop the pain
Don’t leave me out in the cold
Don’t leave me out to die
I gave you everything
I can’t give you any more
Now I’ve become just like you

My lips feel warm to the touch
My words seem so alive
My skin is warm to caress
I’ll control and hypnotize
You’ve taught me to lie without a trace
And to kill with no remorse
On the outside, I’m the greatest guy
Now I’m dead inside!
