Nothing But Thieves - I'm Not Made By Design Lyrics




I live on oxygen, a bastard monkey boy
Do what the hell I like, I'm no celestial toy
Your goddess is bathed in gold while keeping us in line
We're killing each other for a woman in the sky

Ooooooh
I'm not made, I'm not made by design
Ooooooh
Can you be, can you be satisfied?
Ooooooh
I'm not made, I'm not made by design
Ooooooh
Can you be, can you be satisfied?

This kiss in the parking lot is turning me to stone
You take the sweetest thing then claim it as your own

Ooooooh
I'm not made, I'm not made by design
Ooooooh
Can you be, can you be satisfied?
Ooooooh
I'm not made, I'm not made by design
Ooooooh
Can you be, can you be satisfied?

You take the sweetest thing and claim it as your own

Ooooooh
I'm not made, I'm not made by design
Ooooooh
Can you be, can you be satisfied?
Ooooooh
I'm not made, I'm not made by design
Ooooooh
Can you be, can you be satisfied?

  8. Sam Perkins

    2:54 to 3:06 is literally one of the greatest vocal takes ever recorded by a human being, don’t @ me.

    I agree, the power is incredible

  10. MisterStomper

    God give me the strength to fight thim

  11. Whiterun guard.

    Tbh they have been they greatest band since Nirvana in my opinion.

  12. Grimm Joke

    If these guys stay the course and keep going in this direction they may well be this generations version of TOOL.....this song has the subtlety of Pink Floyd....the power of Metallica....the vocal ferocity of Queen....it is a Masterpiece.

  26. Veeti Peeti

    Came here from eskay

  27. oh uwu

    FOR ANYONE WONDERING!! HES JUST AS FUCKING GOOD LIVE

  28. oh uwu

    I JUST KICKSTARTED MY OBSESSION WITH THIS BAND AGAIN (saw them st trnsmt and fell in love with the fuckin vocals oh my fuckin god)

  29. ralphb626

    the best singing voice I have heard since Robert Plant in the 70s, I love this group. This is my favourite so far

  30. TaterTodtStudio

    I love this song but god damn what are the lyrics😂

  31. Keefer Chapman

    My cat listened to this, it turned into a lion

  32. Hold my grapejuice-

    OML Conner rocked it!!! Awesome!

  33. AlgotGyll

    2:16 lost of words

  34. No subs with videos

    Eskay anyone?

    Totally a real Lion

    Lul yeah

  35. Dingus Danglers

    Anyone else here from the impractical rollouts video by Eskay?

    Aritzowo

    I’ve heard it from there but I feel like I heard it from something else...

    pto el que se suscribe

    Yes baby

    Adring TM

    I still here..

    saul sifontesc.r.

    Oh yeah!

  36. Mickey Frickin mouse

    This live is one of the greatest things I will ever see

  37. TheHazyDazeMadness

    this is a hot track!

  38. Nora Yogini

    I love all of your song, but this one... This one gives me goosbumps beginning to end. It's almost like I came, every time. Every time.

  39. Donny Wiggins

    This is probably my favorite by them. Got to see them live today. It was lit.

  40. titans77

    Neenkin killed this... Baken and Drewsky montage was DOPE

  41. Michael Sims

    Baken & Drewsky comp anyone?

    Kelvin Calloway

    Absolutely.

  42. Zane and Tara Magers

    They remind me a little of Muse and a band I loved from early 2000’s called Mad At Gravity. Mad at Gravity had all of the room to grow, huge first album, featured in the movie Reign of Fire.... and they split up, never to be heard from again. This band makes up for the loss I felt from Mad at Gravity breaking up. Keep it coming NBT!

  43. Ztack

    saw you guys in detroit lit af

  44. Isabella Williams

    God I LOVE this song 👏👏

  45. Robin Stahl

    perfection

  46. Jacob Staten

    I get wanting to be independent, but trolling people with this clumsy manifesto is just as annoying as someone knocking on your door uninvited to shove a pamplet in your face asn ask if you've heard the good news. This is a 180 from their typical quality.

  47. Fervb

    Son perfectooos!

  48. Mickey Frickin mouse

    That guitar solo in the middle tho😵👌💜can't get enough of these guys

  49. Seraphim Volkerts

    this song sends shivers down my spine

  50. Chantel Ramos

    I saw them in Dallas last night with my fiance. Truly an amazing experience.

  51. Afflxct1on •

    ¡GREAT! <3<3<3

  52. Christian James Boi Blue

    Zeppelin bridge 😉

  53. Shannon Johnson

    Never heard them before they opened on tour with MUSE. WOW just WOW! I'm hooked!

  54. C_S

    Sounds alil like the popier side of alexisonfire...his voice reminds me alil of Dallas Green in full flight...abit of muse too...banging track either way 👌

  55. Kameron Berkly

    Good Lord

  56. Sophie Jackson

    SORRY BUT HOW TF DOES THIS NOT HAVE MILLIONS OF VIEWS

    S.R.

    It's good that it hasn't :) that means it's special.. that means it's not mainstream 👐

  57. LJ.黄色的橡皮鸭

    Y'all tripping for why y'all want a band to not go mainstream; my reason is the price for concert tickets. I like seeing phenomenal people for $30 a pop.

    LotusLatte

    LJ.黄色的橡皮鸭 dude yes, $30 what a steal for them.

    Nathan McGuire

    NBT and AWOLNATION near the front row for 30 dollars. It was fucking amazing. And I got my sweatshirt signed by Connor Mason (NBT frontman)

    LotusLatte

    danngg you got a solid deal. He's such a cutie! I'm stoked that you got that experience!

    Darrin Davis

    I'm sayin! One of the best perks of being a metal head. Great music, for a fair price. I wanted to see foo fighters in April but nosebleed tickets were like $150, so annoying! I hope I can catch a NBT show before their prices skyrocket

    Mickey Frickin mouse

    Yeasss, going to see them in July this year for 60 bucks👌so stoked!

  58. Shaggy'sScoobySnacks

    I THINK IM IN LOVVVEEEEEE HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  59. Ryan Fitzgerald

    Their sound is so familiar yet so new and refreshing at the same time. Honestly believe they are the best band in the world right now.

  60. Kameron Berkly

    3:02-3:06 ❤

    oh uwu

    Kameron Berkly OH MY FUCKIN GOD

  61. Kameron Berkly

    Ah yes.

  62. 72Z15SS

    My Wife turned me on to this band and this song is one of my favorites!!!

    Minks Rule

    72Z15SS that sounds wrong

    Minks Rule

    72Z15SS it sounds like you're saying that your wife turned you on with this song. Maybe she did but I didn't think you initially meant that

    72Z15SS

    Just the Band, the song I found very intense...Especially his vocals!

  63. Eli Tukz

    I finally found them!!. Can't say I'm into bands, but if the eardrums love it then I wanna know whos got my attention.. :P

  64. Troy Rono

    Heard this on Triple j for the first time. [email protected]#!ng blown away!!!

    Juanita Vernik

    Troy Rono same 😁

  65. Minks Rule

    HAAAAAAAWWWWOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

    amani w/ a shorter name

    Minks Rule WHY DID THAT MAKE ME LAUGH SO HARD OML

    Minks Rule

    Lohia IsAmeme I have no idea. All i know is that I've been looking everywhere for this song just to write that comment!

    amani w/ a shorter name

    Minks Rule i appreciate the effort! It made my day lol

  67. Nostentegy

    I can imagine an epic music video to this.

    Setting: Gloomy, run-down church with Christ hanging on a cross above everything else, looking down below (lighting is a really faded, almost depressive blue, almost black&white)
    Conor & Co. are set up playing this song in the church; Conor looking particularly dark and almost evil/serious-looking.
    Close up on Conor's face as he sings and song progresses; random shots of the church and band as they play.

    Chorus comes in: Much more focus on Conor and the band. Conor holding the stand-mic doing his thang as he sings.

    Random faded lighting coming through the church windows, as if clouds keep passing by the sun outside

    Solo/Bridge first section: Slow-mo shots of Christ hanging on the cross, looking down at Conor and the band as they play
    Solo/Bridge second section: Conor in the foreground with his arms outstretched, imitating Christ being strung on the cross
    As Conor leads into the chorus again, everything suddenly stops at the end

    As the chorus reappears, random parts of the church begin to collapse
    Fire appears (from somewhere), where we see it trailing up to Jesus Christ on the cross and setting fire to him and the entire backdrop behind Conor and the band as they play

    Outro: Conor looking down in a similar way like Christ was, whilst ash falls down all around him and the camera pans out to show the ruins of the church and the surrounding landscape


    *I know this would seem extremely controversial, but seeing as the song seems to follow a strong theme of religion and religious-opposition, this would almost be totally fitting

    Oscar Nuñez

    Very fitting, although I would not enjoy the scene. Ironically, I am a Christian and enjoy this band's music very much.

    MIҞE ƵEPħҰR

    I had a different idea where it was showing like him alone in a dark-setting of a room, either a messy bedroom or an interrogation room, and to me the song seems to be him lashing out at his ex (for treating him like shit of course) so the wall can be covered in torn pictures of a girl he used to be with, while he loses his shit as he sings (Punching the wall, violently moving his body about, grasping onto his head, etc). Or maybe it's just me.

    Pine Apple

    Nostentegy lol I found this song from a montage made by my favourite youtuber (he’s only got 69k subs tho) and the montage is so fucking bad ass

    Kiara Corbo

    MAKE. THIS. HAPPEN.

  68. Angelica Rodriguez

    YAAAS COME THROUGH WITH THE JEFF BUCKLEY INFLUENCE omg I love this

  69. Odins Throne

    awesome track

  70. E C

    AMAZING!

  71. Koolman 29

    That note though....my God....

    Daja Hall

    Koolman 29 oomg yess ikr!!!!

  72. SaraCe

    Thoes 4 thumbs down must borderline def

  73. Erin J.

    i hear that falsetto like in excuse me!! 😃😅😅 *dies*

  74. raison d'être

    I FREAKING LOVE THIS BAND

  75. Zach

    Another interesting comment on religion by this band. Graveyard Whistling was more of a comfort to people negatively affected by religion. This is a song about defying it. Great guitars in this too. ONE MORE DAY

  76. Fletcher Stone

    A part of me wants this band to get really well known and popular.

    A bigger part of me wants them to stay underrated and preserve their sound and avoid the mainstream.

  77. Jonathan Laurents

    I love his voice so much!!😍

  78. zoe

    THIS IS SO GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  79. Corralyn

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this song!!! <3

  80. Sarah Angelica

    The one person who thumbed down this video is my mortal enemy

    Shane Jones

    sarah levy Not just yours but all of ours

    Hunter Blacc

    Nuclear is the only way

    YOU GOT YOUR SELF AN ENEMY, muahahaha......just kidding.

  81. Bitch Cult

    Wow- can you guys believe Nothing But Thieves invented music? Iconic.

  82. LiliaDarwin

    i swear conor's vocals would cure any disease

    Connor Simmons

    helps reduce my depression

    PAPA SENJU

    uncripples my crippling depression

    absolute trash

    snatches my anxiety

  83. koolcid42

    I don't think I'll make it to September 8th

    Minks Rule

    Its past that date. Did you make it?

  84. 단하미

    Im waiting for sep 8 but cannot wait

  85. Kaitlin Forsting

    *waits impatiently for september 8*

    Ruby Gibes

    i cant swim i cant dance and i dont know karate your name tho... lets face it, you're never gonna make it to September 8

    amani w/ a shorter name

    Ruby Gibes That was amazing!

  86. Zachary Rizzo

    he sounds very much like Brandon Flowers

    Haley Marie

    Zachary Rizzo As an active listener of both bands, I have to tell you that he doesn't.

    thankyoumisterspell

    More like a modern Jeff Buckley if anything.

    Zachary Rizzo

    Why doesn't he. I know it's not exact but their emphasis on voice is similar

    Luis Camacho

    Brandon is okay, this guy is a different level. And musically this band is superior, although they are very different styles. NBT is heavier.

    J E

    Luis Camacho lmao "musically superior". You said it yourself they're different styles, don't compare them

  87. Fletcher Stone

    Very Muse-ish. Love it. Switch between Radiohead, Muse and another sound uniquely theirs. For me, who still mainly listens to bands of the 90s and early 00s, it is so refreshing to finally be into a band that's just beginning, amongst the pseudo-rock and cacophonous pop that is in fad right now.

    Michael Giblock

    hipster-pop-"folk"

    Aussie Girl

    Damn I never even saw the connection til you said it. Very Muse.

  88. sklort mcfungus

    this single song alone cleansed my skin and cured me of every problem ive ever had. thank you

    sklort mcfungus

    let it die.... hewwo?? more like... heww no....

    suzanne leonard

    seriously tho

    KAFF’FX

    sklort mcfungus 💜

    Aussie SAKman

    Same. Thank you for being normal.

    Grimm Joke

    The note at 3:00 made my cat pregnant....

  89. Jessica Blondell

    Man, this album is going to be so incredible I can't wait! This song is just so good!!

    Zachary Rizzo

    Jessica Blondell I hope this wins rock song of the year.

  90. Keith Demolder

    One of the most underrated bands. Truly fantastic music and a complete/well-rounded album

    Zachary Rizzo

    They'll be awesome the next 20 years

    Dee Kennedy

    Yes... campaigning to all my Aussie resident UK mates & beyond to get on the NBT band wagon, just so we can see them headlining, not supporting! (Muse)
    As another UK band fav would say; "Get on it!" 😆🤘🏻😜😍

  91. Jenna Martin

    I've never been so pumped for an album in my life, not only is the music amazing but the art is beautiful as well

  92. jenna elliott

    love love love love

  93. ADDY

    Bloody brilliant! more please.
