Fake You Out
twenty one pilots Lyrics


I want to drive away
In the night, headlights call my name

I, I'll never be, be what you see inside
You say I'm not alone, but I am petrified
You say that you are close, is close the closest star?
You just feel twice as far, you just feel twice as far

And I'll fall
And I'll break
And I'll fake
All I wanna

And I'll fall down
And I'll break down
And I'll fake you out
All I wanna

I'm so afraid
Of what you have to say
'Cause I am quiet now
And silence gives you space

I'll never be, be what you see inside
You say I'm not alone, but I am petrified
You say that you are close, is close the closest star?
You just feel twice as far, you just feel twice as far

And I'll fall
And I'll break
And I'll fake
All I wanna

And I'll fall down
And I'll break down
And I'll fake you out
All I wanna

It's the same game today as it always is
I don't give these places fake my name explaining this
And the wrists of my mind have the bleeding lines
That remind me of all the times
I have committed
Dirty dirty crimes that are perfectly form-fitted
To what I've done and what I'm doing
I'm brewing and losing and spewing infusing
And believe me that's what all the kids are doing
What kids are doing are killing themselves
They feel they have no control of their prisoner's cell
And if you're one of them then you're one of me
And you would do almost anything just to feel free
Am I right, of course I am
Convince me otherwise would take all night
Before you walk away, there's one more thing I want to say
Our brains are sick but that's okay

I'll fake you out
I'll fake you out
And I'll break down
I'll fake you out

And I'll fall
And I'll break
And I'll fake
All I wanna

I'll fake you out
I'll fake you out
I'll fake you out
And I'll break down

I'll fake you out
I'll fake you out
I'll fake you out
And I'll break down

All I wanna
Yeah, and I'll fall down
And I'll break down
And I'll fake you out
All I wanna
Yeah, and I'll fall down
And I'll break down
And I'll fake you out
All I wanna

I'm so afraid
Of what you have to say
'Cause I am quiet now
And silence gives you space

What a brilliant song from a Christian perspective! The lyrics and happy tune portray a very relatable experience for everyone, but especially the anonymity / distant feeling when we separate from God. Struggling in our faith in Christ. Like sometimes he really does feel twice as far as the closest star. Cos sometimes you fall down in your faith journey, and break, indeed. In that serious struggle, you’ll fake being alright to the public, but yourself too. It affects our relationship w/ God and thus we’re anxious, depressed, caged, etc.
My interpretation of the verse, “It's the same game today as it always is
I don't give you space to speak my name explaining this”
Is Tyler telling the audience that it’s not in his name to explain what he said is true. Because it is. But it’s in His name—Jesus. Meaning, that this game of anxiety and worry and stress we all as humankind endure and battle, some harder than others respectively, is part of this Great Controversy between The kingdom of God vs Satan, that’s happening now from sin and rebellion, “That remind me of all the times
I have committed dirty, dirty crimes that are perfectly form-fitted.” Everyone has sins they choose and are well fitted with their false identities. We are all wretched in deep ways only ourselves and God knows, that only He can rescue us out of.
“What kids are doing, they're killing themselves
They feel they have no control of their prisoner cell”
This will sound preachy, but it’s in good faith that my interpretation of this verse leads to: only Jesus Christ can help you. Rescue you from any prisoners cell or deep dark struggles that your soul needs a cleanse and rebirth in. Wherever you’re at in this game we’re all under (an eternal depressing game) you WILL make it. Don’t let the enemy have your mind. Take a hard truthful look at yourself and life, and repent—admit you actually DON’T have it together in fulfilling your identity with you hearts desire’s cos they don’t satisfy. They’re not of (or rooted in) God. “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
‭‭John‬ ‭14:6‬ ‭
“Before you walk away, there's one more thing I want to say
Our brains are sick but that's okay”
1. I love his screams.
2. God accepts every sick brain no matter how shattered and broken, or deeply fallen in whatever muck you feel imprisoned in, His Son Jesus Christ will accept you and love you like no one else ever could except than Him. “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.” John‬ ‭6:37‬
So yeah, I guess he’s onto something telling us to stay alive. Because Life IS too precious to lose for anyone, regardless. Suicide will never be the answer. The Father of Lights—God, our Heavenly Father—will enrich your life like no other if you choose Him, and give you a life with Him so real and alive than what you’re capable of thinking. Anyway, great song. Definitely an underrated Christian artist how he delivers the message, but they’re music reached me before I believed and now looking back, I am so glad God was there and working His Spirit through their music to finally have me. I thoroughly enjoy being a child of God, the Greatest King and Lord. The most loveliest and merciful God there is. Come to Jesus. You won’t ever regret it, even when you’ve fallen again.
Stay Alive |-/

Can’t find anyone who posted the lyrics soo:

I want to drive away
In the night, headlights call my name

I, I'll never be, be what you see inside
You say I'm not alone, but I am petrified
You say that you are close, is close the closest star?
You just feel twice as far, you just feel twice as far

And I'll fall
And I'll break
And I'll fake
All I wanna
And I'll fall down
And I'll break down
And I'll fake you out
All I wanna

I'm so afraid
Of what you have to say
Cause I am quiet now
And silence gives you space

I'll never be, be what you see inside
You say I'm not alone, but I am petrified.
You say that you are close, is close the closest star?
You just feel twice as far, you just feel twice as far

And I'll fall
And I'll break
And I'll fake
All I wanna
And I'll fall down
And I'll break down
And I'll fake you out
All I wanna

It's the same game today as it always is
I don't give these places fake my name explaining this
And the wrists of my mind have the bleeding lines
That remind me of all the times...
I have committed
Dirty dirty crimes that are perfectly form-fitted
To what I've done and what I'm doing
I'm brewing and losing and spewing infusing
And believe me that's what all the kids are doing
What kids are doing are killing themselves
They feel they have no control of their prisoner's cell
And if you're one of them then you're one of me
And you would do almost anything just to feel free...
Am I right? Of course I am
Convince me otherwise would take all night
Before you walk away, there's one more thing I want to say
Our brains are sick but that's okay

And I'll fall
And I'll break
And I'll fake
All I wanna
All I wanna
Yeah, and I'll fall down
And I'll break down
And I'll fake you out
All I wanna
Yeah, and I'll fall down
And I'll break down
And I'll fake you out
All I wanna

I'm so afraid
Of what you have to say
Cause I am quiet now
And silence gives you space

Is it just me or like.... okay. Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun don't know i exist. at the concert i was just another unidentifiable face in the crowd. but somehow it's like they're your best friend. tyler writes in a way where its as though he's talking to you. they just feel close even though we've never met. i love that about this band.
