Imagine Dragons - Round and Round
Round and Round by Imagine Dragons is an interesting song with a lot of imagery. Everything seems to come back full circle in the song as suggested by the title. Even the relationship is a return to the past, though he vows that he"won't run away this time." I wonder if the "guarding a tower of ancients" is about repeating the mistakes of the past (repeating cycles through generations). Can the "shooting down arrows of patience," be taken as knocking down the patient gestures of the singer? In any case, it seems like a hopeful song where the singer seems determined to fix an issue from the past and help someone heal. And that can never be a bad thing, right?
The group seems very talented. Their studio recordings seem inspired and each one different from the last. However, most of the videos on YouTube are live recordings where the quality is horrible. Their Continued Silence EP is definitely worth buying! Below is a link to an interview where they share the fact that Imagine Dragons is an anagram for a phrase. Not sure what the phrase is but if anyone figures it out, please share! Interview - The Mystery Behind Imagine Dragons
