Warriors - Imagine Dragons




The ExperienceAs a child, you would wait and watch from far away. But you always knew that you'd be the one to work while they all play. But you, you lay, awake at night and scheme... No one is truly content with being anything less than the best...



Music video: Warriors is a great promo video for the 2014 League of Legends World Championship. However, the fact that we're talking about online heroism, instead of the real thing, begs the question. Is fantasy the only place for heroism? Is fantasy enough, or do you need real life troubles and triumphs?

The Meaning of Warriors: Warriors starts with simple realism - you, you lay, awake at night and scheme of all the things that you would change, but it was just a dream. However, Imagine Dragons know that dreams are powerful things, and the song soon shifts into power ballad as the children, now grown into heroes, stand up for their world - here we are, don't turn away now, we are the warriors that built this town. Following your dreams means sacrifice - farewell, I've gone - but that sacrifice is full of meaning - Don't weep for me 'cause this will be the labor of my love.

Ask yourself: Is your heroism real?

LYRICS:

As a child, you would wait
And watch from far away.
But you always knew that you'd be the one 
To work while they all play.

But you, you lay, awake at night and scheme
Of all the things that you would change, 
But it was just a dream! 

Here we are, don't turn away now, 
We are the warriors that built this town.

Here we are, don't turn away now, 
We are the warriors that built this town. 
From Dust.

The time will come, when you'll have to rise
Above the best, improve yourself, 
Your spirit never dies! 
Farewell, I've gone, to take my throne above
Don't weep for me 
'Cause this will be the labor of my love

Here we are, don't turn away now, 
We are the warriors that built this town.

Here we are, don't turn away now, 
We are the warriors that built this town. 
From Dust.

Here we are, don't turn away now, 
We are the warriors that built this town.

Here we are, don't turn away now, 
We are the warriors that built this town. 
From Dust.
