Ride
Twenty One Pilots Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I just wanna stay in the sun, where I find
I know it's hard sometimes
Pieces of peace in the sun's peace of mind
I know it's hard sometimes
Yeah, I think about the end just way too much
But it's fun to fantasize
All my enemies who wouldn't wish who I was
But it's fun to fantasize

Oh-whoa-whoa, oh-whoa-whoa
I'm falling so I'm taking my time on my ride
Oh-whoa-whoa, I'm falling so I'm taking my time on my ride
Taking my time on my ride

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 ignore 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?

Oh-whoa-whoa, oh-whoa-whoa
I'm falling so I'm taking my time on my ride
Oh-whoa-whoa, I'm falling so I'm taking my time on my ride
Taking my time on my ride

I've been thinking too much
I've been thinking too much
I've been thinking too much
I've been thinking too much (help me)
I've been thinking too much (I've been thinking too much)
I've been thinking too much (help me)
I've been thinking too much (I've been thinking too much)
I've been thinking too much

Oh-whoa-whoa, oh-whoa-whoa
I'm falling so I'm taking my time on my ride
Oh-whoa-whoa, I'm falling so I'm taking my time
Taking my time on my ride
Whoa-oh-oh, (whoa yeah)
Oh-whoa-whoa, oh-whoa-whoa
I'm falling so I'm taking my time on my ride
Oh-whoa-whoa, I'm falling so I'm taking my time on my

I've been thinking too much, help me
I've been thinking too much, help me
I've been thinking too much (I've been thinking too much)
I've been thinking too much (help me)
I've been thinking too much (I've been thinking too much)
I've been thinking too much
Help me

Overall Meaning

The song "Ride" by Twenty One Pilots stands out among their discography for its catchy melody and introspective lyrics. The first verse talks about finding peace in the sun, but acknowledging that it's not always easy to maintain that peace. The singer admits to fantasizing about the end, which could mean death, but also could mean the end of a difficult situation. The second verse gets more personal, describing a willingness to die for someone, but also admitting that these are just words and they don't know what they would actually do in a dangerous situation. The chorus repeats the idea of taking time on the ride, which could mean the journey of life, but could also refer to a physical ride, like a roller coaster. The final line of the song, "I've been thinking too much, help me," could be interpreted as a plea for help with anxiety or depression.


Overall, "Ride" seems to be a reflection on the ups and downs of life, and the struggle to find meaning and purpose in it. It touches on themes of mortality, loyalty, and mental health, all set to a catchy beat that makes it easy to sing along.

I just wanna stay in the sun where I find
I know it's hard sometimes
Pieces of peace in the sun's peace of mind
I know it's hard sometimes
Yeah, I think about the end just way too much
But it's fun to fantasize
On my enemies who wouldn't wish who I was
But it's fun to fantasize
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
I'm fallin' so I'm taking my time on my ride
Oh, oh, oh, oh
I'm fallin' so I'm taking my time on my ride
Takin' my time on my ride
"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's a lie
There were people back home who tried talking to you
But then you ignore 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?"
Oh, oh, oh, oh
