Guns for Hands
Twenty One Pilots Lyrics


I know what you think in the morning
When the sun shines on the ground
And shows what you have done
It shows where your mind has gone
And you swearing to your parents
That it will never happen again
I know, I know oh ow, what that means, I know oh oh oh ow

That you all have guns
And you never put the safety on
And you all have plans,
To take it, to take it, don't take it, take it, take it

I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
But I can't, but I can't when you all have
Guns for hands yeah

I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
But I can't, but I can't when you all have
Guns for hands yeah

Let's take this a second at a time
Let's take this one song, this one rhyme
Together, let's breathe
Together, to the beat
But there's hope out the window
So that's where we'll go
Let's go outside and all join hands
But until then you'll never understand

That you all have guns
And you never put the safety on
And you all have plans
To take it, to take it, don't take it, take it, take it

I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
But I can't, but I can't when you all have
Guns for hands yeah

We've turned our hands to guns, trade in our thumbs for ammunition
I must forewarn you, of my disorder, or my condition
'Cause when the sun sets, it upsets what's left of my invested interest
Interested in putting my fingers to my head
The solution is, I see a whole room of these mutant kids
Fused at the wrist, I simply tell them they should shoot at this
Simply suggest my chest and this confused music, it's
Obviously best for them to turn their guns to a fist

I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
But I can't, but I can't when you all have
Guns for hands

I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
But I can't, but I can't when you all have
Guns for hands

LYRICS
I know what you think in the morning,
When the sun shines on the ground,
And shows what you have done,
It shows where your mind has gone,
And you swear to your parents,
That it will never happen again,
I know, I know what that means, I know.

That you all have guns,
And you never put the safety on,
And you all have plans,
To take it, don't take it.

I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep,
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep,
But I can't, but I can't when you all have,
Guns for hands.

Let's take this a second at a time,
Let's take this one song, this one rhyme,
Together, let's breathe,
Together, to the beat,
But there's hope out the window,
So that's where we'll go,
Let's go outside and all join hands,
But until then you'll never understand.

We've turned our hands to guns, trade in our thumbs for ammunition,
I must forewarn you, of my disorder, or my condition,
'Cause when the sun sets, it upsets what's left of my invested interest,
Interested in putting my fingers to my head,
The solution is, I see a whole room of these mutant kids,
Fused at the wrist, I simply tell them they should shoot at this,
Simply suggest my chest and this confused music, it's,
Obviously best for them to turn their guns to a fist.

I know what you think in the morning

And shows, what you have done
It shows, where your mind has gone
And you swear to your parents
That it will never happen again
I know, I know-ow-ow what that means
I know-ow-ow-ow-ow
That you all have guns
And you never put the safety on
And you all have plans
To take it, to take it
Don't take it, take it, take it
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
But I can't, but I can't, when you all have
Guns for hands, yeah
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
But I can't, but I can't, when you all have
Guns for hands, yeah
Let's take this a second at a time

We've turned our hands to guns
Traded our thumbs for ammunition
I must forewarn you, of my disorder, or my condition
Cause when the sun sets
It upsets what's left of my invested interest
Interested in putting my fingers to my head
The solution is, I see a whole room of these mutant kids
Fused at the wrist
I simply tell them they should shoot at this
Simply suggest my chest and this confused music
It's obviously best for them to turn their guns to a fist
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
But I can't, but I can't, when you all have
Guns for hands, yeah
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
(I'm trying to sleep)
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep
(I'm trying to sleep)
But I can't, but I can't, when you all have
Guns for hands, yeah

Twenty Paphonies

The lyrics of this song are so freaking deep.  Tyler is saying that he stays up at night worrying about his suicidal fans, about the stories that he's heard.  He's screaming for us not to take our lives.  He's proposing that instead, we find our comfort in the music, that we find support in the clique.  And then the rap part tells us that he knows what we're going through.  He tells us that he too has considered suicide.  But he is saying to please take out their anger and their sadness towards him instead of themselves.  Because he can't stand the idea of someone going through what he has gone through.  Stay alive, lovelies.  I-/

One of my worst most recent ones anyway was a man who blew his brains out with a 38. I spare the details for the benefit of the sensitive suffice to say that it was gruesome. He was still "alive". I breathed for him. I noticed a tattoo on his arm. A Caduceus. He was a Medic once, just like me. I guess he saw some shit he just couldn't unsee. I told him I was sorry that this happened to him because hearing is the last thing that goes. I've seen quite a few suicides but that one GOT me......pretty bad for a minute. NOTHING cures suicidal ideation like seeing it. What's left behind.

i was having suicidal thoughts and then i found this song !! I am trying to sleep too...

Swapnil Banyal
