Information

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

Despite the diferent lenghts, all the songs are actually the same studio version, only with less/more silence at the end (the actual international version is 5:09 long).

Interpretation

  1. This song is probably about growing tired of a relationship of which you've given your partner too many chances.
  2. 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, crickets 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 And 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

1997 demo

Oh I am growing tired

Of allowing you to steal Everything I had And it's making me feel

Like I walk all over you I am growing by the hour

You left me far behind And I'm always on your track And when I catch you out I will tear your soul apart

I walk all over you And I am growing by the hour And I'm getting stronger every day Yeah, yeah

You scared us both, you scared them

And I'm getting stronger every day Yeah, yeah, yeah Oooooh
