Did he have a band?

I think there were 3 or 4 others with him, but he was the featured one. It was kind of like they played to set him up, then he just let loose.

Aaron- I see that you posted some Twenty One Pilots videos in the other music thread. I just recently heard them on the radio with 'Stressed Out'. I have been watching some of their videos on youtube. I am pretty much obsessed with them now. I love the sound of Fairly Local. I like the different sounds each song offers. A bit 311-ish in my opinion. Taking me back to my college days....

Oh they're legit huh. I'm happy for them getting on the radio and stuff, I hope they continue to stay true to themselves, they seem to want to make music that they like, to not be afraid of being different and I really identify with the theme of Blurryface as I also struggle with letting go of trying to control what people think of me. Anyway one of my favs is Hometown, I think it has this 80s feel to it with the drums:



All of the ones you mention are great, I've listened to them over and over. Tear in My Heart I like, that's his wife in the end of the video, I like that she is the only character in the video that builds him up, but is also the one who tears him down the most. Doubt is one that grew on me, didn't care for it at first but then one day it came on while I was driving home from work and the lyrics struck me and suddenly I completely related to the song, helped me out when I was down. Also check out their first album Vessel, there's some good stuff on there for sure. But yeah, total fan. Good stuff.

Honestly though I have to admit I've been completely stuck on Lacey Sturm's new album the past few days. She blew it up with that one, strikes a chord in me. Have you heard her cover of Roxanne? I love it, got kind of a Metallica sound to it and her screams are really good and I usually don't care for screaming in music, but hers are addictive.



I'm just glad to have someone who appreciates music I like. Go Stacie! :-)

I think one thing I like about these guys is that they are just plain 'ol guys from the midwest. Not from the ghetto. Not from LA or NY. (Not that those are bad, but that seems to be a lot of popular bands. They didn't seemingly have traumatic childhood experiences, just the ones we all have like wishing we had more playtime and less responsibility. They don't dress for extravagance.
I do find the masks creepy though :D

Lol, yeah, the first time I saw them on YouTube in the masks I was creeped out too. I guess it's just for effect, not sure. Apparently their live shows are really fun, energetic, wouldn't know living up here though... But yeah I agree, just regular guys, it makes them relatable.

Ha, yes.

I think these lyrics are really good, hit home, especially the line about ignoring people. :-)

"I'd die for you, " that's easy to say
We have a list of people that we would take
A bullet for them, a bullet for you
A bullet for everybody in this room
But I don't seem to see many bullets coming through
See many bullets coming through
Metaphorically, I'm the man
But literally, I don't know what I'd do
"I'd live for you, " and that's hard to do
Even harder to say when you know it's not true
Even harder to write when you know that tonight
There were people back home who tried talking to you
But then you ignored them still
All these questions they're for real like
Who would you live for?
Who would you die for?
And would you ever kill?

How old are you by the way?

I am 37 now and finding it difficult to keep up with the lyrics of the songs. Sooo fast. Lol. I find myself fumbling through trying to sing along. I've almost got Fairly Local down.

I'm 27 and I also have trouble, but I've listened to them so many times that I pick them up eventually, I even try singing them while driving, mostly though just rocking vivaciously to the beat when no ones looking :D

Ha!
Well, I drive a mini-van. It seriously inhibits my ability to rock out to a song. It just feels odd. Very odd.
I wait til dark..... Lol

Aaron - I like those lyrics. I too think it's harder to live for someone than to die for them.

Maybe you could make it your spring/summer jam too! :D

Nah, but I agree. ;)

What do you think the chorus lyrics mean?

I'm falling so I'm taking my time on my ride
Taking my time on my ride.

I assume he means the ride of life. We will all die.
Take time to enjoy life while it is here.

Yeah, I'm not sure actually. Your theory sounds good to me. I'm thinking though that when he says I'm falling it's calling the the message that's often found in music about what we'd do or give up for someone because we love them that much (I have Coldplay's Yellow in mind (another great song!!)) to the floor and asking well if we really love people that much then why don't we love them in all that we do, in all the small ways? And I think that's what he means by taking my time on my ride, he's taking the time to make sure he's actually there for people day by day, serving in the small ways that count and not just sitting around fantasizing and thinking about and singing about dying for people. Like Rian said, it's harder to live for someone than die for them, which I'm not sure I agree with entirely (I'm thinking of Jesus' statement about the greatest love we can show), but I do like what it draws out, that is that if we really love someone then we ought to love them all the time, not just at the end. This other thing is really just self worship I think, we are in love with ourselves, with how great we imagine ourselves to be to die for someone, but it's just a fantasy, what about real life? What about daily dying to self and taking the trash out or making lunch for your kids so your wife doesn't have to, whatever, just actually thinking about others and doing something nice because the love of God is springing out of your reservoir. Lol, you really got me going.... :-D
