"DNA" as written by James R. Robertson, Terepai Richmond and Cameron James Undy....
When it came to pass,
Loaded, pass me by
Fate, with a single blow,
Has clustered by me now
True, I had my chance,
True, true, true I had those wild charms for you
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

My fire burned them out
But we will not be moved by it
We will not be moved by it
Your mind would never ache,
When you were young and sound
The way your heart aches now,
You feel you sent them onto ground

Love, love, love til you got enough,
Dance, dance, dance, if you got no love around you
Love, love, love, til' you got enough,
Dance, dance, dance, til' there's no one left to hound you
We will not be moved by it
We will not be moved by it

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Love, love, love til you got enough,
Dance, dance, dance, if you got no love around you
Love, love, love, til you got enough,
Dance, dance, dance, til' there's no one left to hound you
We, we will not be moved by it
We, we will not be moved by it
We, we will not be moved by it
We, we will not be moved by it

    General CommentThe song is about a lost love and the determination of both people to not be bummed out by its loss. With fantastic vagueness I might add.

    When it came to pass
    Lonely passed me by
    (alluding to the theme of lost love)


    Fate with a single blow
    Has custard pied me now
    (custard pied is a bit of a fill in
    verb. basically it just says fate
    has screwed me over)


    True I had my chance
    True true true I had those wild charms for you
    And oh oh oh oh oh my fire burned them out
    (missed out on love, missed her chance)

    But we will not be moved by it
    We will not be moved by it.
    (but we're not going to let it
    make us feel down)

    Your mind would never ache
    When you were young and sound
    (perhaps citing a reason for missing out
    on the chance. chalking it up to being
    young and dumb)

    The way your heart aches now
    Your fevers send them all to round
    (now old and wise, is sort of upset by this loss)

    Love love love till you've got enough
    Dance dance dance if you've got no love around you
    Love love love till you've got enough
    Dance dance dance till there's no one left to hound you
    (this is basically saying that instead of being bummed out,
    this is what they're going to do. Love and Dance.)


    We will not be moved by it
    We will not be moved by it
    (stating firmly that they will not be
    moved by anything in the past)

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Love love love till you've got enough
    Dance dance dance if you've got no love around you
    Love love love till you've got enough
    Dance dance dance till there's no one left to hound you

    We will not be moved by it
    We will not be moved by it
    We will not be moved by it
    We will not be moved by it

    My Opinionthe song could just be about stubborness and denial and alienating people. it's got gospel sound coming from the backup singers with smiles on their faces while singing " we will not be moved by it" but the lead singer is singing that part too- but with some rebellion.
