Imagine Dragons – Whatever It Takes

I do what it takes
I’m ready for whatever it takes
[Verse 2]
Always hanging on to the visual
I was born to run, I was born for this
‘Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
‘Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
I’m an apostrophe
Everybody needs to be a part of ’em
Run me like a race horse
Falling too fast to prepare for this
Word upon your lip, lip
Whip, whip
Whatever it takes
Always had a fear of being typical
Everybody circling, it’s vulturous
[Verse 1]
[Bridge]
Don’t wanna be the parenthetical, hypothetical
I do what it takes
Everybody waiting for the fall of man
[Pre-Chorus]

Whatever it takes
Whip, whip
Whatever it takes
Leave the body of my soul to be a part of me
I was born to run, I was born for this
Negative, nepotist
‘Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
‘Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
Looking at my body feeling miserable
Hold me like a ripcord
Letter that you rip, rip
I’m just a symbol to remind you that there’s more to see
And when I am deceased
Whatever it takes
Hypocritical, egotistical
I wanna be the slip, slip
You take me to the top
You take me to the top
Run me like a race horse
I do what it takes
Break me down and build me up
[Chorus]
Word upon your lip, lip
[Pre-Chorus]
Everybody hoping they could be the one
‘Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
Break me down and build me up
An epoxy to the world and the vision we’ve lost

Break me down and build me up
‘Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins

Working onto something that I’m proud of, out of the box
Looking at my years like a martyrdom
‘Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Everybody praying for the end of times
Letter that you rip, rip
‘Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I wanna be the slip, slip
At least I go down to the grave and die happily
Never be enough, I’m the prodigal son
I wanna be invisible
I’m just a product of the system, a catastrophe
You take me to the top
I do whatever it takes
‘Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
Whatever it takes
I’m ready for whatever it takes
[Chorus]
[Chorus]
I do whatever it takes
I’m ready for whatever it takes
Break me down and build me up

Tripping in the world could be dangerous

Whatever it takes
Hold me like a ripcord
And yet a masterpiece, and yet I’m half-diseased
I do whatever it takes
I do what it takes
