Citizen Erased
Muse Lyrics


Break me in, teach us to cheat
And to lie, cover up
What shouldn't be shared
And the truth's unwinding
Scraping away at my mind
Please stop asking me to describe
For one moment
I wish you'd hold your stage
With no feelings at all
Open-minded
I'm sure I used to be so free

Self-expressed, exhausting for all
To see and to be
What you want and what you need
The truth's unwinding
Scraping away at my mind
Please stop asking me to describe

For one moment
I wish you'd hold your stage
With no feelings at all
Open-minded
I'm sure I used to be so free

For one moment
I wish you'd hold your stage
With no feelings at all
Open-minded
I'm sure I used to be so free

Wash me away
Clean your body of me
Erase all the memories
They will only bring us pain
And I've seen, all I'll ever need

The voice in my head reads the title in a robotic voice. "Citizen Erased. Would you like to undo this action?"

And the truth's unwinding
Scraping away at my mind
Please stop asking me to describe

I wish you'd hold your stage
With no feelings at all
Open-minded

Self-expressed, exhausting for all

The truth's unwinding
Scraping away at my mind
Please stop asking me to describe

Erase all the memories
They will only bring us pain
And I've seen all I'll ever need

First few times I heard this I was dating a serial song skipper and we never made it to the end. The first time I heard it by myself and let it run past 4:56 I was absolutely floored. Before then it was a great rock song, but since that day I've though of it more as a tiny opera. That was a long time ago and now this masterpiece even has a 10 minute sequel that is even more operatic. I'll never get tired of this band.

He never let this ride the full distance, even once?

@Mama Owen Yeah I think Matt himself comfirmed it. It is cool!

Mama Owen

@Mama Owen Yeah. "The Globalist" off of Drones was written as a sequel to this song.

Mama Owen
