Oh the beat's gonna bash gonna break it up
This car's goin' fast gonna speed it up
The night's not gonna last so let's keep it up
We were born to be wasted

Oh the rock's not gonna stop so let's rip it up
The beats are gonna drop you can trip em' up
Your mind is on fire but it's not enough
We were born to be wasted

This gun's blowin up it's just a warning shot
This plane's takin' off on a terror run
This night's gonna end like a missile drop
We were born to be wasted

Baby out loud
Knew that it would come to this
Ain't worth livin'
If you can't get your kicks

    Listing to this song really is a powerful song, the theory behind all the comments that I have read one stands out the most on you the song is made to make a person listen to it and vibe to it as well. Its just amazing song, and for the longest time I have not heard electronica music for awhile. This is one of the best groups I have hear since then.

    No body lives forever. Death will come for us all. By natural causes, an accident, murder, or war. -(born to be wasted) the second you are born the clock starts ticking on your life. You can waste your life doing nothing exciting or meaningful. So step on the gas and get a thrill now and then. Have fun before you get old, because no one knows when death will come for them.

    "the night's not gonna last so let's keep it up" - this will be end someday, so you have to put in as much as you can.

    The life is the same for everyone, it's up to you what you can get out of ot, so keep it up it wont last forever.

    We all are going to die, but we could have fun in the process. "the beats are gonna drop, you can trip 'em up" could mean life is the same for everyone, but you can change the way it goes temporarily, and then life returns to the set path. "your mind is on fire, but it's not enough" is being under the influence of something, and it's not quite enough fun.

    Seriously? I don't think the message it that profound! The guy was clearly on a trip when composing a catchy synthesiser soundtrack and needed some random sentences to make up the lyrics. So, "born to be wasted" and "keeping it up" all night wasn't that original after all. But I admit, it's a song good enough for me to have googled the lyrics.
