Car Radio
Twenty One Pilots Lyrics


I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire, exhale desire
I know it's dire my time today

I have these thoughts, so often I ought
To replace that slot with what I once bought
'Cause somebody stole my car radio
And now I just sit in silence
Sometimes quiet is violent
I find it hard to hide it
My pride is no longer inside
It's on my sleeve
My skin will scream reminding me of
Who I killed inside my dream
I hate this car that I'm driving
There's no hiding for me
I'm forced to deal with what I feel
There is no distraction to mask what is real
I could pull the steering wheel

I have these thoughts, so often I ought
To replace that slot with what I once bought
'Cause somebody stole my car radio
And now I just sit in silence

I ponder of something terrifying
'Cause this time there's no sound to hide behind
I find over the course of our human existence
One thing consists of consistence
And it's that we're all battling fear
Oh dear, I don't know if we know why we're here
Oh my, too deep, please stop thinking
I liked it better when my car had sound

There are things we can do
But from the things that work there are only two
And from the two that we choose to do
Peace will win and fear will lose
It is faith and there's sleep
We need to pick one please because
Faith is to be awake
And to be awake is for us to think
And for us to think is to be alive
And I will try with every rhyme
To come across like I am dying
To let you know you need to try to think

I have these thoughts, so often I ought
To replace that slot with what I once bought
'Cause somebody stole my car radio
And now I just sit in silence

And now I just sit in silence
And now I just sit
And now I just sit in silence
And now I just sit in silence
And now I just sit in silence
And now I just sit

I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire, exhale desire
I know it's dire my time today

I have these thoughts, so often I ought
To replace that slot with what I once bought
'Cause somebody stole my car radio
And now I just sit in silence

Uncle B

Just in case someone out there needs this

After my last break up I had this epiphany while trying to get over her.

This is just my opinion, so hear me out. Getting over someone is a lot like getting over a sickness. It's not something you can wish away, and it's not something you can simply "get over". There is more to it than that.

If you have the flu or a cold do you say to yourself, "oh I'll just get up and feel better now because that's what I need to do"? Of course not. That would not only be irrational, but also incredibly mis informed. If you go out and keep stressing your body out, and try to pretend like you're not sick, you usually end up getting more sick before you get better, or just prolonging the sickness itself.  I think it's only natural to hate being sick, to hate being taken out of your comfortability zone. It sucks, but if you are practical about it and you take care of yourself, the odds are it will make dealing with the sickness much easier in real time, and help the sickness go away quicker. That's just reality. Take care of yourself.

Now relating that to getting over a relationship really isn't that much of a stretch. Losing someone you love is a big shock to the system. If you sit around and beat yourself up and force the issue, you're actively making yourself obsessed with a potential outcome. You're forcing yourself to feel differently because you hate the way you are feeling. Why can't I get her out of my head? Why can't I just move on? Consciously I am over it, but yet I think about her before my eyes close at night, and the first thing when my eyes open... Why? These questions aren't helping you, because the questions themselves are suggesting there is something wrong with the place you're in. There is nothing wrong dude! That's love, baby! That's what makes this world so special and yet inherently fucked up. We get to share that love with people, places, and most importantly... With ourselves. Just as we get to share out sadness with the same people. You can't ride the lighting and expect not to get shocked once in a while!

I don't want to ramble. I don't want to preach. But damn man, cut yourself some slack! It's natural to feel this way. The only way the love you felt while you were happy could be so special is because days like this exist! Ride the lightning my man. Don't attach yourself to any specific outcome or time frame. Just keep it simple and TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF! Trust me, that's the best and most practical thing for you to do.

Think of it like a sickness and do what needs to be done. First off, remember to take your medicine. In this case your medicine is staying physically active, doing the things you love and what's important to you, and sharing what you need to share with people that love you. Treat this like a cold and don't over complicate it anymore than it already is. I promise it will pass. How, when, where, and why I can't tell you. All I know is if you help yourself, and keep it simple, you stand a much greater chance of dealing with this emotion in a healthy way. Your life will go on, and when this is all gone and forgotten you will look back and be thankful and grateful for the expirience.

Ok rant over. Hope you feel better! Good luck my man.

I was so focused on the car radio, I missed his message.
Faith is to be awake
And to be awake is for us to think
And for us to think is to be alive
And I will try with every rhyme
To come across like I am dying
To let you know you need to try to think


He talks to us here. He says that his music is for us. He sings to let us know we need to try to think. And for us to think is to be alive.
