Imagine Dragons - Whatever It Takes (Official Music Video)


Lyrics for Imagine Dragons - Whatever It Takes (Lyrics) 

Released May 8, 2017 by Imagine Dragons

… Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
'Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOsM-DYAEhY 

[Verse 1]
Falling too fast to prepare for this
Tripping in the world could be dangerous
Everybody circling, it's vulturous
Negative, nepotist
Everybody waiting for the fall of man
Everybody praying for the end of times
Everybody hoping they could be the one
I was born to run, I was born for this

[Pre-Chorus]
Whip, whip
Run me like a race horse
Hold me like a ripcord
Break me down and build me up
I wanna be the slip, slip
Word upon your lip, lip
Letter that you rip, rip
Break me down and build me up

[Chorus]
Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
'Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes
You take me to the top
I'm ready for whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes

[Verse 2]
Always had a fear of being typical
Looking at my body feeling miserable
Always hanging on to the visual
I wanna be invisible
Looking at my years like a martyrdom
Everybody needs to be a part of 'em
Never be enough, I'm the prodigal son
I was born to run, I was born for this

[Pre-Chorus]
Whip, whip
Run me like a race horse
Hold me like a ripcord
Break me down and build me up
I wanna be the slip, slip
Word upon your lip, lip
Letter that you rip, rip
Break me down and build me up

[Chorus]
Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
'Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes
You take me to the top
I'm ready for whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes

[Bridge]
Hypocritical, egotistical
Don't wanna be the parenthetical, hypothetical
Working onto something that I'm proud of, out of the box
An epoxy to the world and the vision we've lost
I'm an apostrophe
I'm just a symbol to remind you that there's more to see
I'm just a product of the system, a catastrophe
And yet a masterpiece, and yet I'm half-diseased
And when I am deceased
At least I go down to the grave and die happily
Leave the body of my soul to be a part of me
I do what it takes

[Chorus]
Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
'Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes
You take me to the top
I'm ready for whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes

On Dec. 25, 2001, the Christian rock band, P.O.D. released “Youth of the Nation”

P.O.D. - Youth Of The Nation (Official Video)

By Kevin Dayhoff, assembled from multiple sources Dec. 26, 2018

On Dec. 25, 2001, the American Christian metal band, P.O.D. released “Youth of the Nation,” a single from the album “Satellite,” written by Noah Bernardo, Marcos Curiel, Traa Daniels, and Sonny Sandoval. For many historians, the song is accepted as an anthem of the era in its telling of three stories of adolescent tragedy in American culture.

If you check out the official Atlantic Records’ music video carefully, directed by Paul Fedor, Carhenge is used as a backdrop for parts of the chorus; and the book “On the Road” by Jack Kerouac can be seen on the dashboard of the car - https://youtu.be/EDKwCvD56kw. 

According to multiple sources, but best explained by Zachary Fenell, in “Alternative Rock Songs About Suicide,” October 11, 2010, “It begins by describing a teenager unknowingly skating to school only to be shot by a fellow student. Lyrics go on to speculate whether or not the boy who committed the act felt unloved. 

“Following the chorus, a 12-year-old girl called ‘little Suzie’ is depicted as having been abandoned by her father and subsequently ‘finding love in all the wrong places.’ 

“Finally, another teen known as ‘Johnny boy’ fails to fit in with his peers and ultimately commits suicide by firearm, ‘[telling] the world how he felt with the sound of a gat.’”

In an interview with Mitchell Blatt in 2008, “Back Together, New Album in April” Curiel said, "When you can hear something that's going to uplift you like 'Alive' or something that's going to bring out knowledge like 'Youth of the Nation,' we've done our jobs as an artist."

Marianne Faithfull - Broken English 1979


Saw her perform this in Fells Point in the 1980s.

Marianne Faithfull - Broken English 1979

Could have come through anytime,
Cold lonely, puritan
What are you fighting for ?
It's not my security.
It's just an old war,
Not even a cold war,
Don't say it in Russian,
Don't say it in German.
Say it in broken English,
Say it in broken English.

Lose your father, your husband,
Your mother, your children.
What are you dying for ?
It's not my reality.
It's just an old war,
Not even a cold war,
Don't say it in Russian,
Don't say it in German.
Say it in broken English,
Say it in broken English.

What are you fighting for ?
What are you fighting for ?
What are you fighting for ?
What are you fighting for ?
What are you fighting for ?
What are you fighting for ?

Could have come through anytime,
Cold lonely, puritan.
What are you fighting for ?
It's not my security.
It's just an old war,
Not even a cold war,
Don't say it in Russian,
Don't say it in German.
Say it in broken English,
Say it in broken English.
Say it in broken English,
Say it in broken English.

What are you fighting for ?

What are you fighting

Crosby Nash BBC - Guinnevere September 11, 1970



Crosby Nash BBC - Guinnevere September 11, 1970 #amwriting

These videos are from a September 11 1970 half hour television performance Graham and David did for the BBC.

It was right after CSNY had finished their famous...or infamous... four way street summer tour. with stories of epic melt downs and cosmic feedings between them all, the all star endeavor which had only began two years prior had all but imploded on itself.


Fortunately, all of the guys didn't abandon their relationships all together. Neil recruited Stephen, David, and Graham for backing vocals on After the Gold Rush and Harvest. Crosby invited, among other amazing musicians, Nash, and Young to sing and play on his consummate album If I Could Only Remember My Name.

(Interestingly, of all the musicians David invited to play on his album: Nash, Young, Jerry Garcia,Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart,Bill Kreutzmann, Jorma Kaukonen, Joni Mitchell, Grace Slick, David Freiberg, Paul Kantner, Jack Casady, Gregg Rolie, and Michael Shrieve...missing was Stephen Stills)

Of all the members of CSNY David and Graham's relationship seemed to be the one that stayed most friendly. In these videos you can really see how jovial and genuinely humorous they were with each other and with their audience. not to mention their majestic vocal blending. (the two part harmonies, which sound like five part, on Guinnevere and Song With no Words are particularly mind blowing)

If you dig this flavor of Crosby and Nash i would recommend finding a copy of their 10/10/1971 live recording Another Stoney Evening if you haven't already.

------------------------------------------------
David and Graham play Guinnevere from the first CSN album; it's amazing to hear how well their voice blend. obviously the three part harmony on the album is out of this world, but it's almost another thing to hear just the two of them. voices dancing around like footprints on the beaches. 
------------------------------------------------
"[Following the break up] Crosby and Nash embarked on a successful acoustic tour accompanied only by their own guitars and piano, captured for the document Another Stoney Evening.

On tour, Nash and Crosby rediscovered the joy they had felt with CSN at first, minus the egotistic in-fighting that had made the last CSNY shows so difficult. That enthusiasm led to the studio for their first album as a duo, a mix of abstract introspection from Crosby and concise pop tunes from Nash prosaically entitled Graham Nash David Crosby, which peaked at #4 on the pop album chart."
