In the spotlight
Deadline sends a tingle through your spine
Like light flashes before your eyes.

I've found a new religion based on you.
My friends and I were only out to seek the truth

Would you give it all up to see the dream?
Would you wash it all down if you don't believe? (Straight up and go)

Like a close call
So pressed for time
From the music to these lips
Let these lips send chills down through your fingertips

I've found a new religion based on you
My heart and I were only out to seek the truth

Like a cut-throat sing-along
So influential
Like a cut-throat sing-along
So influential (We are so influential)
Like a cut-throat sing-along, so influential (Make it now, make it now, it's time to decide)
Like a cut-throat sing-along, so influential (Make it now, make it now, it's time to decide)

Would you give it all up to see the dream?
Would you wash it all down if you don't believe? (If you don't believe)
(Make it now, make it now)
Would you give it all up, to see the dream?
Would you wash it all down, if you don't believe? (Straight up and go)

    Would you wash it all down if you don't believe?"

    These have to be the two most powerful lines in the whole song. If you just were to listen to the chorus one could easily infer that this song is about how badly you want something. How much do your dreams really mean to you? Are you willing to sacrifice everything for your dreams? Would you give-up if you lost hope? Thats all that is saying. How badly do you want it?

    However every other line in the song really has no relation to the chorus. Or at least I can't make a match. The opening stanza is obviously talking about pressure in situations when you need to make a quick and important decision. But the religion line throws me off completely.

    I don't know. It's a tricky song to decode. But definitely one of my favorites. The mind-blowing vocals, the upbeat rhythm, everything about it is just grade 'A'.

    General CommentAmazing song, amazing band. This song is about wanting something so badly that you don't let anything stop you from getting it. It's also about asking yourself, "Is it really worth it?" and basically saying, "Yeah, I'll do whatever it takes, because this matters more than anything else to me."
