Description

The last song on Showbiz and rarely played live by the band.

Additional information

Probable meaning: This song is probably about growing tired of a relationship of which you've given your partner too many chances.

Alternative meaning: Could be about the same person as in Hyper Music and Uno. Someone who was associated with the band before they made it, who Matthew Bellamy had reason to dislike. (On a similar theme Sunburn seems to be about a girl who was associated with them, who in contrast Bellamy regrets having to leave behind, because he sees her as a star).

Music trivia

If you listen closely throughout the song, cicadas can be heard chirping.

Lyrics

Oh I am growing tired,
Of allowing you to steal,
Everything I have, you're making me feel,

Like I was born to service you,
But I am growing by the hour.

You left us far behind,
So we all discard our souls.
And blaze through your skies,
So afraid to die.

'cause I was born to destroy you,
And I am growing by the hour.
I'm getting strong in every way, yeah. Yeah.

You led me on, you led me on, you ...

Oh, and I'm getting strong in every way,
yeah. Yeah.
