Whatever It Takes
Imagine Dragons

'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins 
I do what it takes 
 
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 
 
Whip, whip 
Run me like a racehorse 
Pull 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 
 
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 
 
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 
 
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

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 
 
Whip, whip 
Run me like a racehorse 
Pull 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 
 
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
