Radioactive Remix - Imagine Dragons ft. Kendrick Lamar


The ExperienceYou've gone all the way down. You're a wreck. And the nightmare doesn't end: you wake up to the apocalyse. The only thing that could be worse would be checking out permanently. Is there any room for hope? Imagine Dragons thinks there is. Underneath the mess, something's waking up: the new you.

Music Video: Kendrick Lamar rocks The Grammy's with Imagine Dragons, dressed in a white chem suit to resist life's fumes.

Meaning of Radioactive-Remix: We can fall really low, and things can go very wrong. But there's something stronger than anything the world can do to us. Stronger than anything we can do to ourselves. Hope. The sun hasn't died. And if you hold on long enough, it will come out. Pain hurts, but it can also make us radioactive: someone new, someone we could have never dreamed of becoming if life had been a cakewalk.

Kendrick Lamar's new verse adds (along with a few expletives) attitude: sometimes persevering and hoping isn't enough. You can change everything. You just have to come out with your guns blazing, and tackle your problems head on. 

Ask Yourself: Where do I hurt? Have I given up, or am I growing through the pain?


LYRICS:


I'm waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I'm breathing in the chemicals
I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse, whoa

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive

I raise my flags, dye my clothes
It's a revolution, I suppose
We'll paint it red to fit right in
Whoa
I'm breaking in, shaping up, checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive

All systems go, sun hasn't died
Deep in my bones, straight from inside

[Kendrick Lamar]
Bury me alive, bury me with pride
Bury me with berries, that forbidden fruit and cherry wine
Thank you berry much, but tonight's my night and I'm Barry Bonds
Swingin' for the fences, barbaric Kendrick in idle time
Everything in life's subject to change, change whip, change grind
Change clothes, change opinions, right before I change my mind
I don't really know yah business, been in there since I was bendin' Lego blocks
Now you tell the world about me, dry snitch
Tater tots on my shotgun, now I gotta pop one at the stars
Sky's the limit, I gotta finish as the first rapper on Mars
Mark my word, Imma make my mark, even when they start their Marshall Law
Even when these martians alienate, my mental state is still at heart
F-ck, look in my eyes, tell me I died, tell me I tried, to compromise
Tell me you love me, tell me that I, don't give a f-ck and can barely decide
Wishin' good luck on my enemies, all of my energy go to the almighty God
I could drown in a bottle of Hennessy, f-ck your amenities, I'm gettin' better with time
AHHHHH!

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
