Muse's seventh album Drones
opens with this funky rocker where Matt Bellamy sings about the tumultuous end of a relationship. The song sets up the record's concept concerning the journey of a person who has lost all hope. After being indoctrinated by the system into becoming a human drone, he eventually defects away from this oppressors.
Matt Bellamy explained: "This is where the story of the album begins, where the protagonist loses hope and becomes 'Dead Inside', therefore vulnerable to the dark forces introduced in 'Psycho
' and which ensue over the next few songs on the album, before eventually defecting, revolting and overcoming these dark forces later in the story."
