Lyrics are Poetry

UNDISCLOSED DESIRES by Muse

I know you’ve suffered
But I don’t want you to hide
It’s cold and loveless
I won’t let you be denied

Soothing, I’ll make you feel pure
Trust me, you can be sure

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty’s not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

You trick your lovers
That you’re wicked and divine
You may be a sinner
But your innocence is mine

Please me, show me how it’s done
Tease me, you are the one

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty’s not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

Please me, show me how it’s done
Trust me, you are the one

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty’s not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

 

I love this song, I think it has such a deep meaning to it. The lyrics are not like poetry, they are poetry. The song includes exact rhyme, slant rhyme. And in the chorus, it has rhyme at the last word of each line but also in the middle, certain words rhyme too (reconcile, recognize, and exorcise). This lyrics are also rich in metaphors, especially in the chorus.
