Drink up baby down,
Mmmm, are you in or are you out?
Leave your things behind
'Cause it's all going off without you,
Excuse me, too busy you're writing your tragedy,
These mishaps, you bubble wrap,
When you've no idea what you're like.

So let go, let go, jump in,
Oh well, whatcha waiting for,
It's alright,
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown,
Let go, l-let go, just get in,
Oh, it's so amazing here,
It's alright,
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown.

It gains the more it gives,
And then it rises with the fall,
So hand me that remote,
Can't you see that all that stuff's a sideshow.

Such boundless pleasure,
We've no time for later now,
You can't await your own arrival,
You've 20 seconds to comply,

So let go, let go, jump in,
Oh well, whatcha waiting for,
It's alright,
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown,
Let go, l-let go, just get in,
Oh, it's so amazing here,
It's alright,
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown.

So let go, jump in,
Oh well, whatcha waiting for,
It's alright,
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown,
Let go, l-let go, just get in,
Oh, it's so amazing here,
It's alright,
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown.

The breakdown.
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown.
It's so amazing here,
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown.

    idrk what this song means but as a cover goes, they did a wonderful job. On top of that the lyrics are really striking, almost beautifully tragic. I think of cities erupting in flames and lights shattering and lakes with sparkling reflections and Martin Johnson being amazing and beautiful and all-around kickass.

    It's just telling you that youo can let it go, jump into life, and not care. That it's alright to let go and breakdown, because that's what's beautiful.

    I personally think that the song is about how its okay to just let go and cry and let go of everything and to fall in love. hence "'cause there's beauty in the breakdown" which to me it means its beautiful to just breakdown and let go and just cry and feel what you actaully feel.

    I agree with "Faith babyy".
    You should never be afraid of falling inlove. No matter what happens in the end, you're bound to learn something from whatever happens. Just follow your heart, "so let go, let go, jump in. Oh, well whatcha waiting for ?"
