Warriors Lyrics


As a child you would wait
And watch from far away.
But you always knew that you'd be the one
that work while they all play.

And you, you'd lay awake at night and scheme
of all the things that you would change,
but it was...

    I know this was made for League of Legends but when i listen to it, it reminds me of a child who was abused and as when a kid is abused they're very unsocial at school so they watch while they all play. They'd also feel like they have to take lie seriously and not play as much and work instead, child under abuse would also dream of of things they'd change but usually children under abuse don't get a say as the abuser would objectify it. A child under that circumstance needs to be like a warrior and battle back their problems.
    That's how i see it.

    this doesn't have to be about LOL, this is about defying the norm and people who try to stop your dreams, and reaching your goals.

    I think its about a person who always dreamed big but wasn't into physical interaction with people instead he prefers online games. He got into a big gaming company and got his dream to happen virtually... He wishes his dreams to be something
    not so nonphysical and wishes to turn away but instead he realizes he don't have to touch his dreams to make them real.At least that's what i think.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think this song basically describes those that change the world. They were always odd children, different in the way they acted, their ideas. This "strangeness" allowed them to imagine completely new possibilities. When everyone is pulling then down they are always looking forward, struggling to make their voice heard. They fight to change the world.

    The song basically describes the life of league of legends players and how the professionals were all like us at one time. As children they would give up time with friends/sports/other activities and devote a large fraction of their life to this game. The ones that try, the ones that sacrifice, they are the ones that make it far. They are the ones that we all want to be. They go against their families who think they are wasting their time because they know that they all have a shot.
