Immortals Lyrics

They say we are what we are,
But we don't have to be,
I'm bad behavior but I do it in the best way,
I'll be the watcher (watcher),
Of the eternal flame,
I'll be the guard dog,
of all your fever dreams,

I am the sand in the...

    The meaning is about how an underdog decides that they need to step up and become a hero. That's why they say we can be immortal but not for long. They will be immortal through story telling, but they won't actually be immortal.

    I think that it means people are trying to tell him who to be, but he's saying why can't I be what I want to be? Like why do I have to listen to you? I want to be who I want to be. Not what you want me to be.

    I think this song is basically for the underdogs. It's basically saying,"People try to define you, but you define yourself."

    This song is about losing someone you care about then having to take on a bigger role to fill their shoes.

    I think it's about how a guy loves someone and will do literally anything to help and/or save them.

    I think that it's like a thing where they're all, "It doesn't matter what people say, i we feel like this is the real deal, why not act on it?"

    To put it simply,the chorus a guy wants to stay in this moment with a girl. The song focuses on the fact this guy loves this girl and time. He wants to spend his whole life with her RIGHT NOW.
