Believer - Imagine Dragons




The Experience: Pain! You break me down, you build me up... Some people spend their lives running from pain. Other people are believers in the power facing pain and coming out the other side...


Music video: Dan Reynolds faces off against a crusty veteran. And the pain begins. They box and box, and bleed and hurt. At one point Reynolds gasps a complaint, "I wanna stop." The answer? "We can't." Life doesn't stop. And neither does the fight.

The Meaning of Battle Symphony: Imagine Dragons embrace something today's world runs from - pain. They learn four lessons from it. 1: it comes when you decide to change. 2: it comes when you go against the current, against what others want to make you. 3: it doesn't have to break you. It can forge you - all the hate has turned your spirit to a dove. It can make you great like God and the saints - the ones above. 4: for all of that to happen, you can't try to ignore or drown the pain - hoping my feelings they would drown. You have to own it. And struggle on.

Ask yourself: What is your pain? What does it teach you?

LYRICS:

First things first
I'ma say all the words inside my head
I'm fired up and tired of the way that things have been, oh-ooh
The way that things have been, oh-ooh
Second thing second
Don't you tell me what you think that I can be
I'm the one at the sail, I'm the master of my sea, oh-ooh
The master of my sea, oh-ooh

I was broken from a young age
Taking my sulking to the masses
Writing my poems for the few
That looked at me took to me, shook to me, feeling me
Singing from heart ache from the pain
Take up my message from the veins
Speaking my lesson from the brain
Seeing the beauty through the...

Pain!
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer
Pain!
You break me down, you build me up, believer, believer
Pain!
I let the bullets fly, oh let them rain
My life, my love, my drive, it came from...
Pain!
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer

Third things third
Send a prayer to the ones up above
All the hate that you've heard has turned your spirit to a dove, oh-ooh
Your spirit up above, oh-ooh

I was choking in the crowd
Living my brain up in the cloud
Falling like ashes to the ground
Hoping my feelings, they would drown
But they never did, ever lived, ebbing and flowing
Inhibited, limited
Till it broke open and it rained down
It rained down, like...

Pain!
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer
Pain!
You break me down, you build me up, believer, believer
Pain!
I let the bullets fly, oh let them rain
My life, my love, my drive, it came from...
Pain!
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer

Last things last
By the grace of the fire and the flames
You're the face of the future, the blood in my veins, oh-ooh
The blood in my veins, oh-ooh
But they never did, ever lived, ebbing and flowing
Inhibited, limited
Till it broke open and it rained down
It rained down, like...

Pain!
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer
Pain!
You break me down, you built me up, believer, believer
Pain!
I let the bullets fly, oh let them rain
My life, my love, my drive, it came from...
Pain!
You made me a, you made me a believer, believer
