Believer

Holden’s favorite song is “Believer” by Imagine Dragons. Given that my favorite song when I was 8 was “2 Legit 2 Quit” by MC Hammer (and my dad still won’t let me forget it to this day), I’m going to go ahead and give Holden the edge when it comes to musical taste.

 

BELIEVER by Imagine Dragons

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

Write down my poems for the few

That looked at me, took to me, shook to me, feeling me

Singing from heartache from the pain

Taking my message from the veins

Speaking my lesson from the brain

Seeing the beauty through the

You made me a, you made me a believer, believer

(Pain, pain)

You break me down, you build me up, believer, believer

(Pain)

Oh 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

Building my rain 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

‘Til it broke up and it rained down

It rained down, like

You made me a, you made me a believer, believer

(Pain, 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

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

‘Til it broke up and it rained down

It rained down, like

You made me a, you made me a believer, believer

(Pain, 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
