Sucker For Pain (lyrics)
I think that this song may mean that they self harm and since it's one of those things that you almost get addicted to, they feel like they can't stop. For example,"I'm a slave to your games." Also, "sucker for" means you really like something, so "I'm a sucker for pain." Means (in my point of veiw) "I have gotten used to the pain, it soothes me."
Sucker for pain (lyrics)
It's about living with all kinds of pain and the ways you cope with it. If you have emotional pain, sometimes you use cutting or lifestyle things like BDSM to express on the outside what you feel inside. Or you do it if you have physical pain as a way to take back control, to overwhelm the pain and to take your mind off the pain you can't stop and think about the pain you chose. Another way to cope with pain is to go dead inside, to shut down your own feelings. Or to be a sadist and hurt and kill other people because it lets out your own pain and helps you feel powerful and in control. These are all ways people deal with pain. The song is talking about them all. It's all the different ways we deal, we cope.
There are two voices in the song: the dominant and the sub. They may be suckers for pain because :1. being so infatuated/in love with someone that you become a 'slave to their games' even though you know they are a toxic 'flame' you want to burn just to feel the pain of being hurt by them. The pain even 'soothes' you. 2. Inflicting pain empowers you and is a way to manipulate others. You 'tie them up' to show them they are helpless and you are in charge. This could be constant teasing, negging, gaslighting etc. 3. A BDSM relationship of mutual consent based around a shared kink.
A group of people, maybe friends or siblings. All experience pain from someone of multiple people. They experienced pain for so long that that is all they know and they think pain is normal. They want more pain because that is all they are used to. And, from my perspective, one of them fights back.

Overall, "Believer" is about someone who finds meaning in the pain in his life. We don't know for sure that this is autobiographical to anyone in the band, but there's such emotion in the vocalization that it's hard to not believe that this song has deep personal meaning. The song is the declaration of a person who has experienced great pain in his life but who has learned important things about himself through those experiences.
In this stanza of "Believer," Reynolds tells us, "I was broken from a young age." This could mean any number of things, but perhaps it's meant to communicate to us that he's been introspective about his own weaknesses since he was a child. He's known his limits, and he's battled with them. That battle has led him to take his "sulking to the masses" in the form of song, or as he says, "Write down my poems for the few / That looked at me, took to me, shook to me, feeling me." People listened to what he had to say and understood what he meant. This is especially important because many of Imagine Dragons's songs can sound dark or brooding, suggesting a dark inner life for the songwriter. The fact that the fans understood him probably brought him comfort as he sang "from heartache from the pain."
In response to the pain, the band sings, "I let the bullets fly, oh, let them rain / My life, my love, my drive, it came from / Pain!" Knowing that pain has made him who he is today, Reynolds tells the pain to continue coming. He's not necessarily thrilled about, but he seems to believe that pain is a part of normal life, and he's ready to learn from it and be challenged.
Here, Reynolds tells us, "Third things third / Send a prayer to ones up above," referencing perhaps angels or religion. He's a Mormon himself, so this does seem to be a religious reference, perhaps to the Trinity or Godhead. When he sings, "All the hate that you've heard has turned your spirit to a dove," it seems to be him telling his listeners or himself that enduring pain has given them or him grace and patience.
Instead of things getting better when he hoped his "feelings . . . would drown," "they never did. . . ." Instead, they "ever lived, ebbing and flowing." But they were also boxed in or, as he says, "[i]nhibited, limited." Constrained like this, they "broke open and . . . rained down . . . like / Pain!" The violence of these emotions was too great to be contained and manifested itself in emotional pain.
Here, Reynolds adds, "Last things last / By the grace of the fire and the flames / You're the face of the future, the blood in my veins." There can be multiple theories about what this means, but it seems to be Reynolds telling fans how much they mean to him and how, despite all of the pain, they have given him support and power to continue sharing his songs and himself.
I really like "Believer," and I think it has a powerful, deep meaning. Sometimes life is a little difficult, and sometimes that difficulty makes us want to give up. But Imagine Dragons here is telling us that instead of giving up, we sometimes have to face the pain head-on and find out what we can learn from it.
If any of us look back at our own lives, we'll see that parts of who we are were shaped by pain at one point or another. I'm sure we'd rather not have been shaped by some of these experiences, but we are who we are nevertheless. Reynolds seems to be telling his audience that he has learned this and that he knows that pain will never go away, so he's going to meet it head-on instead of running away from it.
I think that's a good message as long as it doesn't prompt any of us to go looking for pain, which I know is a tempting thing for some. As a small example, I know that on days I'm incredibly stressed out, it's easy for me to just give into the feeling of being overwhelmed and say, "Oh, well. I'm not going to finish everything anyway. I might as well just be a loser the whole way." From self-inflicted punishment to activities like cutting, I think people are more open to seeking out pain than they think, but as long as we recognize the difference between pain that doesn't have to happen and pain that is a part of life, I think we can face the necessary difficulties better, much like what Imagine Dragons is telling us here in "Believer." 041b061a72
