Rippin' my heart was so easy, so easy
Launch your assault now, take it easy
Raise your weapon, raise your weapon,
One word and it's over

Rippin' through like a missile,
Rippin' through my heart,
Rob me of this love
Raise your weapon, raise your weapon,
And it's over

Love your ego, you won't feel a thing
Always number one,
The pen with a bent wrist crooked king
Sign away our peace, for your war
One word and it's over
Dropping your bombs now, on all we've built
How does it feel now to watch it burn, burn, burn?
Raise your weapons, raise your weapons,
And it's over

Rippin' through like a missile,
Rippin' through my heart,
Rob me of this love
Raise your weapon, raise your weapon,
And it's over

How does it feel now to watch it burn (burn)?

Rippin' my heart was so easy, so easy
Launch your assault now, take it easy
Raise your weapon, raise your weapon,
One word and it's over

Rippin' through like a missile,
Rippin' through my heart,
Rob me of this love
Raise your weapon, raise your weapon,
And it's over

Love your ego, you won't feel a thing
Always number one,
The pen with a bent wrist crooked king
Sign away our peace, for your war
One word and it's over
Dropping your bombs now, on all we've built
How does it feel now
To watch it burn, burn, burn?
Raise your weapons, raise your weapons,
And it's over

    General CommentGreat song. As any long time fan of deadmau5 will notice....this song is moving more into the dubstep era. This isnt too bad because I know mau5 will still keep his style without moving all the way into the Dubstep genre.

    My OpinionActually, I feel the lyrics are using war as a metaphor for the breaking point in a relationship. As mentioned above, the weapons used in this seemingly one-sided war of words are fueled by anger and mistrust. The antagonist is assaulting the singer with words, "dropping [his] bombs now, on all [they've] built" and slowly "rippin' [her] heart" out. The singer at the end leaves one last scornful remark for her ex-lover; "How does it feel now to watch it burn, burn, burn?"

    Kinda brings back to mind the phrase: "All's fair in love and war." Even if it really has nothing to do with the point of view of the lyrics.

    Check out Madeon's Remix of this. Its really great for being done by a 16 year old!

    My InterpretationThis song is about a one sided divorce from the view of the one desiring reconciliation (peace), but it is analogized with war. The weapon is a pen, the war is a divorce ("one word"), and the ego-lover is a narcissistic spouse.

    "Love your ego, you won't feel a thing, always number one, the pen with a bent wrist crooked king, sign away our peace, for your war, one word and it's over."

    General CommentIt's obviously about a relationship. I see it as a break up. The action of breaking up. Dropping bombs, watching it burn- he's watching her burn, and tearing down all they've built.

    It's really interesting actually, because in the original version I get the feeling of her (the singer?) giving up, while in the remix The girl is daring the boy to raise his weapon, as if it's war. Very Curious.

    Song MeaningIts a story of a murderer who had to murder someone he didn't want to murder, a popular girl who was getting away with assault. The one word was not rape but a word used as a murder cue to his friend. Robbed him of love because the assaultee had to run away. Then in the end a stalking Nanny takes over a house with an underworld with a bunch of stuff harming African Wild Dogs. I could have proved this theory but the French police didnt catch the attempted murder.

    My InterpretationMaybe the "one word" is simply sorry. Say sorry "and it's over". It is clearly a romantic relationship.

    General CommentI would say that this song is about a relationship. and she is comparing her loved on leaving. she compares the feeling of being heartbroken, to a missle ripping through her heart, raising the weapon is the moments leading up to the exact moment when they are over.

    General CommentI definitely think "weapon" is words. This song is about someone whose anger is destroying a relationship. The singer wanted the relationship to work, but she's broken now and she's ready to give up with just one more angry word. At this point, she's actually encouraging him to bring it on, and reflecting on what he has destroyed.

    General CommentThis song can seem like its about a relationship. but if you really pay attention to what is being said it sounds more to me like its about a war. Korean war maybe? I don't know.

    "Love your ego, you won't feel a thing, always number one, the pen with a bent wrist crooked king, sign away our peace, for your war, one word and it's over. Dropping your bombs now, on all we've built, how does it feel now to watch it burn, burn, burn? Raise your weapons, raise your weapons... And it's over."

    I really love this song though. can't stop listening to it.
