What's the meaning behind the broken heart?
Watch your feelings, try not to fall apart
I think we're dying to play the victim card
You taste like chemicals, and you are the one they want
What makes you feel good at the moment?
What breaks you down, what makes you whole?
Oh you know
Oh you know

You said it's all the rage
Love dies and we relate
I hope you're entertained
God bless the renegades
Let's watch the superstars run from the cannibals
They think they're gonna be saved
God bless the renegades
God bless the renegades
God bless the renegades

What's the reason for the guilty one's love
Go wash that blood off your hands
Oh you won't believe this, no matter what you are
We live like animals, and the cowards die alone
We die alone

You said it's all the rage
Love dies and we relate
I hope you're entertained
God bless the renegades
Let's watch the superstars run from the cannibals
They think they're gonna be saved
God bless the renegades
God bless the renegades
God bless the renegades

So tell me how do we change
We give ourselves away
No words can take the place
Beautiful lies we chase
Entirely erased

You said it's all the rage
Love dies and we relate
I hope you're entertained
God bless the renegades
Let's watch the superstars run from the cannibals
They think they're gonna be saved
God bless the renegades
God bless the renegades
God bless the renegades




God bless the renegades

Overall Meaning

The song God Bless The Renegades by Clint Lowery is a powerful anthem about standing up to societal norms and expectations. The opening lines talk about a broken heart and trying not to fall apart, which could refer to the pain of being rejected by the mainstream for being different. The singer seems to be aware of the insincerity of some people ("You taste like chemicals, and you are the one they want"), indicating that there are those who pretend to be something they are not just to fit in. The lyrics delve into the question of what makes people tick, what brings them up and what tears them down, and the sad reality that some people thrive on negativity.


The chorus, "God bless the renegades", celebrates those who go against the grain and refuse to conform to societal norms. The second half of the chorus is a poignant reminder that even the biggest celebrities and stars are not immune to being eaten alive by the same system they serve. The bridge talks about the importance of change and how we sometimes lose ourselves in the quest for acceptance ( "Beautiful lies we chase, Entirely erased"), but there is a hopeful note in the line "No words can take the place", which implies that actions speak louder than words.


Overall, the song is a powerful message about staying true to oneself, even if it means going against everyone else, because in the end, being a renegade is better than being a follower.

Damn, even better than the first single! Definitely sounds like it could be on a Sevendust album.

I like this one better too. The soaring melodies and all the driving octave sounding guitar work in the background is like 90's Deftones shit and I love THAT.
