Imagine Dragons: Tiptoe Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2012
Watch me from above, Like a vicious dove
They don't see me come, who can blame them?
They never seem to catch my eye but I never wondered why
I won't fall asleep, I won't fall asleep

TI's probably about aliens coming to take over Earth.....slowly and carefully...

Didn't anyone feel this could be used for a vampire series or movie? "Watch me fall above like a vicious dove, They don't see me come, who can blame them?"..." "From your slanted view see the morning dew
Sink into the soil, watch the water boil
They won't see me run, who can blame them?
They never look to see me fly, so I never have to lie"... Well, the first time I heard it I thought it was the soundtrack of a vampire movie... Anyway! :P

Well, there were hawks and doves in all wars, they were just a bit more open during the Vietnam war. My first thought was that it was a song about the Air-Force, or maybe more specifically a stealth bomber.

Unfortunately.. there is something going around called spiritual awakened.. It's kinda a religion.. but It's anti religion and basically your made from the earth and stars Andrey bellive what Christians believe.. except they leave out God and Christ they believe in they are their own his.. and God is everyone.. this particular song I believe is about when you what they call wake up.. I get this cause this hole album is basically about this.. is a New Age religion /cult

I see it as an individual who's going to be great but is climbing secretly. Tiptoe higher, don't let them know were coming, keep your head down low... At least that's what I saw.

I think that it is a song about routing for success and making sure no one gets in the way of you making your dreams come true and being successful. By using the word tip toe it could interpret that they don't want anyone to know that they are going for their dreams - a song about not giving up perhaps

That actually sounds like a good explanation, now that you bring it to my attention. . .

I was wondering if anybody else agreed with me. I think this song is related to the Vietnam War. The part about a vicious dove? During the war there were hawks and doves. Hawks were for the war and doves were against it, but started rioting after the tet offensive. The tet was an invasion on a holiday by the vietnamese. that would explain why some parts say " dont let them see we're coming". And also some parts talk about flying. During the vietnam war there were many helicopters in use which would explain that. Does anyone agree? Or do i sound crazy?
