"Born To Lose" as written by and Chris Rubey Andy Trick....
Blessed be those who have no idols, no idols!
Invoke holy honor, sanctify the patient.
I don't see the world the same.
I'm no one's hero, so just forget my name.

I abhor you,
With every foolish thing that you say.

None of it is worth the time:
Another meaningless war.

You don't know what you need.
We're all so back and forth,
Nothing is as it seems.
You don't know what you need.
We make the same mistakes,
We've ruined everything.

What is it this time?
What must you call holy?
This is your lifeline,
Nothing is at it seems.

If I were you I'd give it up.
If I were you I'd care.
I'm born to lose
With a noose around my neck.
World be damned and move forward.

I abhor you,
With every selfish thing that you say.

None of it is the worth the time.

You don't know what you need.
We're all so back and forth,
Nothing is as it seems.
You don't know what you need.
We make the same mistakes,
We've ruined everything.
Born to lose
With a noose around my neck

    General CommentIf you watch the video for this, it's definitely about idolising things. They're simply saying that you shouldn't sacrifice yourself or idolise things that aren't worth your idolising. Like false idols, we idolise money, our job, popularity or even music - when we should be focussing on God, our creator.

    General CommentWell, what I think is that they are trying to say that sacrifices need to made. From what I read from the title "Born to Lose" but like most of you said, we see the wrong things as an idol, instead of Jesus Christ himself.

    General CommentYet again this band never ceases to amaze me. I'm not Christian at all and I LOVE this band!!
    To me the lyrics can even be seen in a non-religious way as well.

    I see Mike saying that he isn't the world's hero. And he's sick of the crap that people/objects give him. Maybe it's suggesting that vanity is going to be the world's demise. Because we don't know what we need. We're back and forth and nothing's as it seems..
    As humans we constantly make mistakes and we hardly ever learn from them.
