Plug In Baby Lyrics

I've exposed your lies, baby
The underneath is no big surprise
Now it's time for changing
And cleansing everything
To forget your love

My plug in baby
Crucifies my enemies
When I'm tired of giving
My plug in baby
In unbroken virgin...

    HAHAHAHAHA I love Matt, Genetically what puppies? Stay young and what forever? I say the dude was high or drunk, funny as hell to begin with, we all know it. I mean for real, quit trying to analyze the song for 5 seconds and think of what he said, just do it.. Listen with me...

    BAHAHAHA Isn't that funny? Ok anyway,I say it's about A (noun) in witch can be used at any time for whatever purpose (noun-person/people)wants, that when used makes your "problems" go away.. I.E crucifying your enemies, broken virgin reality, etc...

    Changing things to forget the love, it's going to lose it's own game.... Sounds like an addiction of some sort, trying to be tossed away by the person who has it... Or thing for that matter.

    In the end I think the song was made for people with addictions of any kind in general that make you feel like real problems go away. That people should learn to go without them, maybe it's not so bad facing reality without this thing... Whatever it may be.

    If Matt want's robotic puppies that live and look cute forever, by god people, let's give the man some damn puppies! If you want it to be about is guitar, why the hell not? You like porn, go for it! Robotic future of whadah.... Ok maybe that one is a stretch... but at any rate that is what I think.. Take it easy on the overanalyzing alrite? ''''''This will stay anonymous so anyone who says they wrote this can go piss off.''''''''

    It is about him and his guitar. Women may cheat on you, play you, or whatever, but his "plug in baby" electric guitar, will always be there and they will conquer whatever life throws their way.

    It's definitely about his guitar, internet porn doesn't fit as well. many fans I know came to the same conclusion themselves, but I've only heard the porn interpretation when it's circulated on internet sites., Also, what kind of band would compose such an amazing, original, different and thoroughly rocking song, if it were about something as trivial as porn? Come on guys, use your heads...

    Definitely about his guitar...I'm not sure, but my interpretation is that his guitar is...well, in a way, loyal to him..."to forget your love", he wants to forget his guitar in a way because he keeps smashing all his guitars, and he tries not to be sad to see it go. "I see your loving, but mine is gone"...

    I don't know, but that's what I think.

    You guys are thinking too much into this. Matt himself said that he doesn't know what it means.

    I think I know what he was trying to say..

    I think the Plug in Baby is his Guitar. It helps him to carry on through times of lost love, of a girl that cheated him somehow by lying to him and hurting him. But as he sais his plug in baby crucifies his enemies and it does so through the music they make together.

    I feel exactly the same way right now though nowhere near as musical as muse in any sence my guitar still helps me through time of great emotional trouble or turmoil.

    I think he's talking about his guitar, only another guitar player would really understand how guitarists feel about their guitars, they're an outlet of you emotions. so when you're frustrated ("tired of living") you plug in and play, and feel much better for it. just my view anyway

    But in an interview, Matt says that this song is about his guitar.."his plug in baby" that's what I read.

    It's about almost all the things you guys have written about so far, and then some...its about his guitar, porn, himself, and yes, it is definitely about genetically engineered puppies....

    The song is an anthem mourning the void, make-believe, technologically driven world we're all so immersed in...its about a plastic world where real needs are given quick fixes via cables, wires, and wifi...

    Need love? try this plug in baby on for size...its a genetically modified puppy that never grows old..need friends? get a facebook account...need affirmation? plug in that guitar and rock out on stage..

    We turn on our various plug-in-babies to crucify our real world fears and concerns...

    I seriously doubt that the song is about any one specific thing...its about how so many of the things central to our lives these days just arent real anymore...

    It's about mother marry that born his son without a husband. Her virgin is unbroken and it's reality.

    The song is definitely about someone being heartbroken. The only way to soothe his pain is through his guitar. His guitar protects him and comforts him through all the heartaches.

    I always like to think that it's about his experiences as a young guy going out and getting laid, but the people he always thought were young women were actually disgusting women disguised under make up ("unbroken virgin realities")

    However he's wised up to this and he now knows who is tricking him, which is what the song is about. ("I've exposed your lies, baby, the underneath is no big surprise")

    He wants to forget all the times he has fallen for it and ("forget your love")

    The results of him getting with these women is likely something like an STD ("I've seen your loving, mine is gone, and I've been in trouble")

    He's wised up to it and he won't fall for it even if drunk ("don't confuse baby you're gonna lose your own game")

    Well that's what I like to think anyway :)

    I think in 'plug in baby' Matt tells about his love that will go immediately,Because he was tired of giving love to the woman who he love much whereas she act like a robot as if she didn't want to care about him. So, he decide to stop for loving because she like to play his feeling,but her own playing confided her own self so it shown and changed him....at the end, the girl begin to love him but the love is PLUG......kdunntnddfortherealmuser@yahoo.com

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
