Drown
Tyler Joseph Lyrics


Here I come, come to you in the very clothes
That I killed, killed you in and now I know I’m alone
I walk to you, rain falls from you
Can you wash me, can you drown me?

I wanna be a lot of things, so much pent up inside of me
I wanna be stronger, too long I’ve sat here undecidedly
Planning strategy, half of me know it’s all just a fallacy
Failing miserably, drastically and then I crash dramatically
Into a wall I’ve hit a hundred times before
And yet I still ignore the dark red blood stains on the floor
And I’m back in front of you, Lord, with the blood on the floor
Is the blood mine or yours? Don’t wanna do this anymore

Back and forth between me and me and who you call me to be
You see a man free who thinks he has to buy a key
To a door but he can’t ‘cause he’s poor and he can’t
Fall down anymore ‘cause he’s already on the floor
And his heart is broken and all and this is his scar
But it’s warm from crying ‘cause he will try nine times
To realize nine crimes but he has more than nine lives
So he picks himself up and keeps fighting for the prize again

Here I come again to you
Just to show the blood soaked through
Through my bones and all I own
Is there a way for me to grow?
I walk to you, rain falls from you
Can you wash me, can you drown me, please?

Every time I feel selfish ambition is taking my vision
My crime is my sentence, repentance is taking commission
It’s taking a toll on my soul, I’m screaming submission and
I don’t know if I am dying or living
‘Cause I will save a face for name’s sake
Abuse grace, take a aim to obtain a new name in a newer place
But my name is lame, I can’t walk and I ain’t the same
And my name became a new destiny to the grave and
They say the ocean’s blue but it’s black right now
In the dark, on the sand, looking out at my crowd
Depression and drowning singing now the full parts
Of lightning reveals where the ocean stops and the sky starts
I’ve been told by the sky that the ocean I shall win
But it’s hard for me to see where ocean stops, and where sky begins
A random strike of light reminds me of what is true
But right now the ocean is black and black the sky is too

I just realized that this whole verse is also in the song fall away by twenty one pilots

“Every time I feel selfish ambition
Is taking my vision
And my crime is my sentence
Repentance is taking commission
It's taking a toll
On my soul
I'm screaming submission and,
I don't know if I am dying or living
'Cause I will save face
For name's sake
Abuse grace
Take aim to obtain a new name
And a newer place
But my name is lame
I can't walk and I ain't the same
And my name became
A new destiny to the grave”

That’s neat :]

Hello,
Today you are alive
You are alive because of yourself
You should be proud of that
You didn't drown,
Even though you almost did,
Even though you were fighting for air,
Hoping that someone would reach out and grab your hand.
You struggled, yes
But you made it
You didn't drown
You're still here,
Still alive.



RandomCat

Not alive because of myself
I would die if left to myself..
I’m alive because of others.
My friends,
Some family
Helping others or others helping you
Is the only way to stay alive
Even if you don’t know them (Tyler <3)
Some people will be there for you
So be there for them.

I wrote this just now...its called...Sun

I had a glance in remembering what i had in my past
Two things that formed together but like the wind goes, it didnt last.
I formed the ways of my ways of the forming waves
I held together of the passing day to forget a day in which became my passing days.
I hold the colors of what creates my brother
And I fought against them, they fought against each other.
Forming in one single moment, blockade of which I've stolen.
It keeps ahead with the rest of us,catches the tongue
Catching the lyrics we all once sung
And by the end if the day we live under the same sun.
-JG

"He can't fall down anymore 'cause he's already on the floor"
I'd usually say I'm not emotional...






Tyler had different plans
Stay alive frens. You've made it this far. you can make it. You're not alone.
