009 Sound System – Born To Be Wasted lyrics

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

    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.

    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.

    This makes me think that we are born to be used and thrown away whether that be through capitalism, religion, war, drugs or just a fundamental belief of a certain way to live. We are living up to all the other ppls ideals around us and those who came before us and unless you break a cycle of repetition and blind fellowship you are wasting your own ability of destiny. We start at the bottom and through our own choices we can find peace.

    I'm just sleepless, trying to make it through the day so I hope everything I type make sense. Sleepless because forced psychiatric meds during my late teens. There were many other side effects too, battling throught them one by one.
    Well,
    "Oh the beat's gonna bash gonna break it up
    This car's goin' fast gonna speed it up",
    Should be self explanatory but the thing is we always want more of whatever good thing we have right now. Simple as that. Beat bash means when the rhythmic drum beat/drop sets in. Break it up doesn't mean breaking up a band, duh, it means leave your worries and tensions behind and party with even your enemies.

    "The night's not gonna last so let's keep it up
    We were born to be wasted",
    Because just from my perspective I can see that 24hrs a day ain't doing no justice for a day. Let alone 8 hrs sleep per night. I mean why won't people have 12 by 12 for day and night? Well then the corporate oligopolies can't have us working like a good goy slave. It's 30hrs/day or no deal. But we can't because the sun and the moon are set in motion and are gonna keep in motion. I haven't slept for a second last night but that behind, many people choose to live it in the nightlife when occasional insomnia hits. The reasons can be many from cradle to grave. I mean are we gonna be spending our whole life inside this little bubble, insecure, unable to do that thing because I don't have or I am not this thing right now, I'm gonna put it off for tomorrow....which is not guaranteed. Even when we pray daily as we should, the ones at the societal top, pulling the strings, had already perpetrated the destruction of our dreams.

    "Oh the rock's not gonna stop so let's rip it up
    The beats are gonna drop you can trip em' up",
    This part is strictly musical. The beat drop of the sophisticated electronic music, and the gritty rock music drum/guitar solo which exposes our ego for ourselves to see. We rip it up, meaning we might pull and tear our on clothes. We're tripped up which means we go crazy for that key part. I mean some get us crazy for that part too. Some producers actually misuse that part.

    "Your mind is on fire but it's not enough
    We were born to be wasted",
    This part is not about drugs. This is about sheer intellect alone. I mean hypothetically, I write all these things down, the server fails one day, my script is gone. Think about it. Many things we do in the name of intellect alone are wasted. Meanwhile, it's not enough because we try to contribute breakthroughs at the wrong time, to the wrong person, at the wrong place. Which never accomplishes anything.

    "This gun's blowin up it's just a warning shot
    This plane's takin' off on a terror run",
    The gun may explain Olympics countdown, maybe even a sprint. We're eager. Going for that medal and also that thrill. Having flown many times on airplanes over long distances, I can tell you, there's nothing more scarier than takeoff and landing. The turbulence is just a common thing. Takeoff/landing=extremely dangerous. But knowing that, we put our trust in God, so hey, there aren't as many mishaps, which would otherwise be. Although a few act like they don't care, sending selfies #takeoff, and jamming hard to their .mp3 file coded at 128 kbps. Lame.

    "This night's gonna end like a missile drop
    We were born to be wasted",
    Expecting the worst about an outcome at the end of the day. Oh my, the stocks are falling, 40% of my earnings are now worth nothing. Many may sell theirs which adds to the problem. To each his own? Learn when to, accordingly.

    "Baby out loud
    Knew that it would come to this",
    I told you so, I told you all this would happen, why didn't you listen? I was screaming my lungs out then and I'm screaming now. Why couldn't you just listen!

    "Ain't worth livin'
    If you can't get your kicks",
    This is a wake up call, they've got you encircled with materialistic pleasures. Everywhere you turn, you have many choices, most of them require big moneys. You'll be depressed and feel empty, or may reject God, when you don't get that one little thing you were hoping for. Ain't worth it, that thing ain't worth it. 2016 Will see the end of crony capitalism.
