Scraping away at my mind
Please stop asking me to describe

from Muse – Citizen Erased Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

As stated in the song’s description, this whole track is about what it feels like to be questioned.

Asking for nit-picky details is related to “scraping away” at one’s mind, trying to get everything that’s available and more in response to one’s questions.

Who wants to be thoroughly examined? As Bellemy echoes, here, no one wants to explain themselves, completely.
