Cut the Cord Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom, follow me)
(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom) cut it
(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom, follow me)
(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom)
Verse 2
Let me tell you, I'm vicious
Not pass-aggressive
I got my finger on my pulse, staring straight into a hole and I'ma get it
And I'm a savage
It's automatic
I got a way of making noise, the power to destroy with no static
Verse 3
Now victory is all you need
So cultivate and plant the seed
Hold your breath and count to ten, just count to ten
Verse 4
I'm gonna make it rain, so ring the bell
I know it all too well
Switchblade on the edge of your wrist
Can I get a witness? (witness)
'Cause agony brings no reward
For one more hit and one last score
Don't be a casualty, cut the cord
Verse 5
(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom, follow me) cut the cord
(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom)
Verse 6
You gotta feel courage
Embrace possession
If it was easier to shatter everything that ever mattered
But it's not, because it's your obsession
Be a fighter, backbone, desire
Complicated and it stings, (but we both know what it means)
And it's time to get real and inspired
Verse 7
Now victory is all you need
So cultivate and plant the seed
Hold your breath and count to ten, just count to ten, just count to ten
Verse 8
I'm gonna make it rain, so ring the bell
I know it all too well
Switchblade on the edge of your wrist
Can you witness (witness)
'Cause agony brings no reward
For one more hit and one last score
Don't be a casualty, cut the cord
Verse 9
Cut it
Cut it
Verse 10
'Cause victory is all you need
So cultivate and plant the seed
Hold your breath and count to ten, just count to ten
Verse 11
I'm gonna make it rain, so ring the bell
I know it all too well
Switchblade on the edge of your wrist
Can you witness? (witness)
'Cause agony brings no reward
For one more hit and one last score
Don't be a casualty, cut the cord
Don't be a casualty, cut the cord
Verse 12
(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom, follow me) cut the cord
(Freedom, la la la la)
(Freedom, follow me, me, me)

2 Thoughts and Song Meanings

The song is brutally honest, its about the fact that being dependent on other things that hold you back is like selfharm/suicide (as in the line "Switchblad on the edge of your wrist") and that you need to break away from those bonds to truely live freely as yourself (as stated in the lines "Don't be a casualty, Cut the Cord") - Comment by Agent_Crispy 2 years ago
