Natural
Imagine Dragons Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Will you hold the line
When every one of them is giving up or giving in? Tell me
In this house of mine
Nothing ever comes without a consequence or cost, tell me
Will the stars align?
Will Heaven step in? Will it save us from our sin? Will it?
'Cause this house of mine stands strong
That's the price you pay
Leave behind your heart and cast away
Just another product of today
Rather be the hunter than the prey
And you're standing on the edge, face up 'cause you're a

Natural
A beating heart of stone
You gotta be so cold
To make it in this world
Yeah, you're a natural
Living your life cutthroat
You gotta be so cold
Yeah, you're a natural

Will somebody
Let me see the light within the dark trees shadowing?
What's happening?
Looking through the glass find the wrong within the past knowing
Oh, we are the youth
Cut until it bleeds, inside a world without the peace facing
A bit of the truth, the truth

That's the price you pay
Leave behind your heart and cast away
Just another product of today
Rather be the hunter than the prey
And you're standing on the edge, face up 'cause you're a

Natural
A beating heart of stone
You gotta be so cold
To make it in this world
Yeah, you're a natural
Living your life cutthroat
You gotta be so cold
Yeah, you're a natural

Deep inside me, I'm fading to black, I'm fading
Took an oath by the blood of my hand, won't break it
I can taste it, the end is upon us, I swear
I'm gonna make it
I'm gonna make it

Natural
A beating heart of stone
You gotta be so cold
To make it in this world
Yeah, you're a natural
Living your life cutthroat
You gotta be so cold
Yeah, you're a natural





Natural
Yeah, you're a natural

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Imagine Dragons's song Natural speak to the strength and determination required to survive in the world. The opening lines pose a question of whether one will "hold the line" and "stand strong" despite the challenges faced by oneself and others. The lines also suggest that the house that the singer refers to comes with a cost, which raises the question of what the cost might be.


The chorus of the song seems to suggest that in order to make it in the world, one has to be "so cold" and leave behind their feelings of love and compassion. The lyrics seem to celebrate the strength required to be a "hunter" rather than "prey," and the "natural" qualities needed to survive in a cutthroat world. There's an element of darkness in the chorus, suggesting that one has to be tough to succeed in this world.


The bridge of the song hints at the personal struggle one might face in the world. The singer asks to be allowed to "see the light within the dark trees shadowing" and talks about how it's necessary to confront the truth, no matter how bleak it may seem. The song ends on a somewhat optimistic note, with the singer vowing to "make it" despite the challenges faced in the world.
