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.

    It's about having nothing better in life and experiencing today's subculture of substance abuse, while expressing it through electronic music ... nothing else to do, born to be wasted kids...

    I think that this song refers to young kinds being 'wasted' as in killed. The army gets them when they're young and then shits them out.

    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.
