Imagine Dragons – Whatever It Takes

After the triumph of their latest album “Evolve” released in June, Imagine Dragons decided to surprise their fans with a brand new music video for the song “Whatever It Takes”.

Imagine Dragon’s third album “Evolve” was released on 23rd June and has quickly become a chart-topper. It remains one the best-selling albums of this year so far. Reaching international success with their album “Smoke+ Mirrors” in 2015, Imagine Dragons have a promising future ahead of them.

To celebrate their success and further promote their record, the band decided to share a brand new music video for their catchy single “Whatever It Takes”. After months of teasing and their 360° lyric video which was released a few months ago, we finally get to see their latest creation.

Directed by Matt Eastin and Aaron Hymes, the clip was shot in band’s hometown, Las Vegas. Nothing can stop their furious tunes and guitars, not even bad weather, pouring rain or fire. Discover their aesthetically pleasing music video just down below.

Currently the band is touring through the United Stated since September for their “Evolve World Tour”.

Lyrics

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
‘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
