Learning from lyrics MUSE - Time is running out (Live)



I think I'm drowning

asphyxiated
I wanna break this spell
that you've created

you're something beautiful
a contradiction
I wanna play the game
I want the friction

You will be the death of me
You will be the death of me

Bury it
I won't let you bury it
I won't let you smother it
I won't let you murder it

Our time is running out
Our time is running out
You can't push it underground
You can't stop it screaming out

I wanted freedom
bound and restricted
I tried to give you up
but I'm addicted

Now that you know I'm trapped - sense of elation
you'd never dream of
breaking this fixation

You will squeeze the life out of me

Bury it
I won't let you bury it
I won't let you smother it
I won't let you murder it

Our time is running out
Our time is running out
You can't push it underground
You can't stop it screaming out
How did it come to this?
ooooohh

You will suck the life out of me

Bury it
I won't let you bury it
I won't let you smother it
I won't let you murder it

Our time is running out
Our time is running out
You can't push it underground
You can't stop it screaming out
How did it come to this?
ooooohh

Negative and destructive but addictive too, I read these lyrics as being the end of a relationship. Time is limited but clinging  to the shreds that are left is not a choice for him. He is fighting to preserve what he thought he had.

The promotional video appears to show the intimate relationship as a metaphor for a larger one between individuals and those who govern. 

I like to see it as my determination to write and be published.
