Sad song in Matrix about Neo's Heart (5)


I believe the answer is:


'sad song' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'matrix about neo's heart' is the wordplay.
'matrix' becomes 'grid' (I've seen this before).
'about' is a reversal indicator.
'heart' says to take the centre.
The centre of 'neo' is 'e'.
'grid' reversed gives 'dirg'.

'in' is the link.

(Other definitions for dirge that I've seen before include "Mournful music" , "Elegy" , "Melancholy song" , "Funeral hymn" , "Song or hymn of mourning" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun and The Telegraph.
