Blurryface

Twenty One Pilots released their new album Blurryface a few days early, and they did not disappoint.Twenty One Pilots released their new album Blurryface a few days early, and they did not disappoint.

Having heard of them through Tumblr back in 2012, the band intrigued me. I liked what they had out, but I somehow forgot about them, but not for long!

Vessel came out, and I absolutely loved it, again it had been though Tumblr, and Holding Onto You was just my spirit song. As I listened to every single song they ever recorded, they all were my songs. They all spoke to me in a way that I understood.

I wanted to see them live, and it finally happened in November of 2014, and it was life changing. I can only imagine how their new performances are going to be from now on with songs from Blurryface.

Now the next time they will be here in Chicago is for Lollapalooza which sold out, but I have a ticket for that Sunday, the day that they're playing and to say I'm excited would be the understatement of a century.

Now, lets talk about Blurryface. One by one as twenty one pilots released tracks to this album, my excitement increased.r, and Holding Onto You was just my spirit song. As I listened to every single song they ever recorded, they all were my songs. They all spoke to me in a way that I understood.

Now, lets talk about Blurryface. One by one as twenty one pilots released tracks to this album, my excitement increased.

(I could never choose a favorite song, but I will choose my favorite line(s) from the songs)

First it was Fairly Local. ASDFGHJKL; Favorite Line: 
I’m evil to the core
What I shouldn't do I will
They say I’m emotional
What I wanna save I’ll kill



Then it was Tear in My Heart. Favorite line: But my taste in music is your face



They were complete opposites! I'm sure most of the fandom did not know what to expect, but with past albums, not every song sounded alike, each song was its own.

Stressed Out, do not even get me started on that song! Favorite Line(s):
We used to play pretend, give each other different names,
We would build a rocket ship and then we’d fly it far away,
Used to dream of outer space but now they’re laughing at our face,
Saying, "Wake up, you need to make money."
Yeah.


Lane Boy, Favorite Line: 
All these songs I'm hearing are so heartless
Don't trust a perfect person and don't trust a song that's flawless


Ride, this song just hit home, Favorite Line:
I'd live for you, and that's hard to do
Even harder to say when you know it's not true

I've been thinking too much
Help me


Heavydirtysoul, Favorite Lines:

This is not rap, this is not hip-hop
Just another attempt to make the voices stop
Rapping to prove nothing, just writing to say something
Cause I wasn’t the only one who wasn’t rushing to say nothing
This doesn’t mean I lost my dream
It’s just right now I got a really crazy mind to clean

The Judge, this was very hard to choose a line for, Favorite Lines:
I don't know if this song
Is a surrender or a revel
I don't know if this one
Is about me or the devil

So I head out
Down a route I think is heading south
But I'm not good with directions
And I hide behind my mouth
I'm a pro at imperfections
And I'm best friends with my doubt
And now that my mind's out
And now I hear it clear and loud
I'm thinking, "Wow
I probably should've stayed inside my house."

Doubt, Favorite Line:
Fear might be the death of me
Fear leads to anxiety
Don't know what's inside of me

Polarize, Favorite Line:
Domingo en fuego
I think I lost my halo
I don't know where you are
You'll have to come and find me, find me

I wanted to be a better brother, better son

We Don't Believe What's on TV, Favorite Lines:
I used to say I wanna die before I'm old
But because of you I might think twice

Don't want to know who I would be
When I wake up from a dreamer's sleep

Message Man, Favorite Lines:
You don't know my brain
The way you know my name
You don't know my heart
The way you know my face

Please use discretion when you're messing with the message man
These lyrics aren't for everyone
Only few understand

Hometown, Favorite Line:
Where we're from, we're no one
Our hometown's in the dark

Not Today, Favorite Lines:
Listen, I know
This one's a contradiction because of how happy it sounds
But the lyrics are so down
It's okay though
Because it represents, wait, better yet it is
Who I feel I am right now

You are out of my mind,
You aren't seeing my side,
You waste all of this time trying to get to me
But you are out of my mind

Goner, the song I have been waiting for, Favorite Lines:
I'm a goner
Somebody catch my breath
I wanna be known by you

Though I'm weak, beaten down
I'll slip away into the sound
The ghost of you is close to me
I'm inside out you're underneath

Don't let me be gone


I hope you guys enjoyed this post about my favorite band, twenty one pilots, one that has truly changed my life. 
Love you guys,
