The Devil Wears Prada "Born To Lose" Reviewed

Holy Hell. 

So on September 13 we get new DWP.  Was it worth the wait?

Yes.

From the sound of the new single currently streaming the band has not only grown up- they got smart.   No longer your basic hardcore scream banter, lyrically its insanely thought provoking.  Many of you squares out there are not able to listen to hardcore so how about I do a cut and paste of lyrics so you can see whats being said:

Blessed be those who have no idols. Invoke holy honor, sanctify the patient.
I don't see the world the same. I'm no one's hero, so just forget my name. I abhor you, with every foolish thing that you say.
 None of it is worth the time: another meaningless war. You don't know what you need.
We're all so back and forth, nothing is as it seems. You don't know what you need. We make the same mistakes, we've ruined everything.
  What is it this time? What must you call holy?
This is your lifeline, nothing is at it seems. If I were you I'd give it up. If I were you I'd care.
I'm born to lose with a noose around my neck. World be damned and move forward. I abhor you, with every selfish thing that you say.
None of it is the worth the time.
You don't know what you need. We're all so back and forth, nothing is as it seems.
You don't know what you need. We make the same mistakes, we've ruined everything. Born to lose with a noose around my neck.

Yikes, Mike Hranika pretty much lays it down right there. 

The song is a joy it has a few weird pitchy things going on and a slight variation in volume which I cant figure out… maybe its the equivenlent of a rough draft.

Regardless its fantastic and I want September to hurry up.
