No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2018
Nothing ever comes without a consequence or cost, tell me
Will the stars align?
Will heaven step in? Will it save us from our sin? Will it?
'Cause this house of mine stands strong
That's the price you pay

It's basically trying to say that unless you are willing to take a stand, metaphorically a fight, you are going to fade out and become nothing more than a statistic.

I think this song is basically saying that this guy is a natural at being cold he saying that you have to be tough and Have a Heart of Stone to make it through and not care about anyone and he also says living in a dog eating world try think as a metaphor for everybody attacks everyone no matter their relationship he also says leave behind your heartache which I think means don't care about what your heart says just move forward he also said this house of mine Stands Strong he saying his group of people doesn't get pushed around cuz they are tough and they learn how to live out life this is my interpretation on the song please correct me if I'm wrong

“Living in a dog-eat-dog world can bring out the worst in you, and sometimes, the best,” says the band’s singer Dan Reynolds. “It would be a lie to tell you I haven’t become somewhat skeptical about some things in the last decade of my life. However, I believe that when you truly learn to love yourself, the judging eyes and hateful words become meaningless. ‘Natural’ is about finding yourself and being willing and able to stand up to whatever adversity comes your way.”

I think it's a guy talking to himself who is fighting in a war or something. He says:"You're a Natural, a beating heart of stone". Maybe he doesn't want to kill people, but he says to himself that he should stand strong and ignore his pain."That's the price you pay", is maybe about when youre fighting, it's not easy but you need to do it.

It's saying this is a harsh world to live in and to make it this far is great for you. You are still fighting till the end.

Maybe they are saying "you've gotta be so cold to make it in this world" is just saying the world is rude and if they are rude you have to stand up for yourself show them you aren't gonna be pushed around

It’s a choice this guy has made
To leave behind a kinder way of being in the world to get what the society in these times think is important, to make it in the world What did he give up? What did it cost him?
What does he get,money? Prestige?
What did he leave behind? A family traded for a tribe maybe
I wonder what was the price
“my house stands strong”, his business, His band, his gang, his social group?
It doesn’t sound like loved ones does it

I interpret it to be that whomever is a cold hearted. ...due to the harsh world we live in. ..and that whomever is so good at it..they are a "Natural"

He is fighting depression and is trying to shut out the world.

If you think about it on a deeper level, it is almost a direct reference to depression. Just think about it.
you really need to listen closely to the one first lyric that says "In this house of mine". It really says "In this house of mind". You have to think about the song as if was coming from the mouth of someone struggling with depression.

I believe this song is somewhat about how the fittest survive and no matter what comes at you you keep fighting and keep it up. Because we live in a dog eats dog world every man for themselves.

This song basically pens that life is hard, but you need to be the "hunter rather than the prey" because people are crazy. And once you do it for a qhile, it becomes a habit, and it is natural for you to win or "make it in the world"

Made an oath with the blood of my hand, won't break it.
They are Illuminati!

It's basically saying that it's a dog-eat-dog world. "You've gotta be so cold, to make it in this world" is saying that you need to look out for yourself and no one else. "That's the price you pay
Leave behind your heartache, cast away
Just another product of today
Rather be the hunter than the prey" is saying that no one will notice you unless you put yourself out there, just like this shoutout for my own youtube channel, CrayBar277. So, yea. PLZ CHECK IT OUT
