Ode to Sleep
twenty one pilots Lyrics


I wake up fine and dandy but then by the time I find it handy
To rip my heart apart and start
Planning my crash landing
I go up, up, up, up, up to the ceiling
Then I feel my soul start leaving
Like an old man's hair receding
I'm pleading, please, oh please
On my knees repeatedly asking
Why it's got to be like this?
Is this living free?
I don't wanna be the one be the one to have the sun's blood on my hands
I'll tell the moon
Take this weapon, forged in darkness
Some see a pen, I see a harpoon

I'll stay awake
'Cause the dark's not taking prisoners tonight

Why am I not scared in the morning?
I don't hear those voices calling
I must have kicked them out
I must have kicked them out
I swear I heard demons yelling
Those crazy words they were spelling
They told me I was gone
They told me I was gone

But I'll tell them
"Why won't you let me go?"
"Do I threaten all your plans?"
I'm insignificant, please tell 'em
You have no plans for me
I will set my soul on fire
What have I become? I'll tell 'em

On the eve of a day that's forgotten and fake
As the trees, they await, and clouds anticipate
The start of a day when we put on our face
A mask that portrays that we don't need grace
On the eve of a day that is bigger than us
But we open our eyes, 'cause we're told that we must
And the trees wave their arms and the clouds try to plead
Desperately yelling, there's something we need
I'm not free, I asked forgiveness three times
Same amount that I denied, I three-time MVP'd this crime
I'm afraid to tell you who I adore
Won't tell you who I'm singing towards
Metaphorically, I'm a whore, and that's denial number four

I'll stay awake
'Cause the dark's not taking prisoners tonight (oh, oh, oh)

Why am I not scared in the morning?
I don't hear those voices calling
I must have kicked them out
I must have kicked them out
I swear I heard demons yelling
Those crazy words they were spelling
They told me I was gone
They told me I was gone

But I'll tell them
"Why won't you let me go?"
"Do I threaten all your plans?"
I'm insignificant, please tell 'em
You have no plans for me
I will set my soul on fire
What have I become?
I'll tell 'em

You have no plans for me
I will set my soul on fire
What have I become?
I'll tell 'em
I'll tell 'em
I'll tell 'em
I'll tell 'em

Please tell them you
Have no plans for me
I will set my soul on fire
What have I become?
I'm sorry

You did it!
You made it to 2020.
You've got this.
You can make it to next year.
You can do this.
Stay fed and hydrated.
Take your meds.
You aren't alone as much as it may feel like it.
Stay alive.

My family thinks I'm mad.
I played this song for the school rehearsal.
My friend sang.
It was so cool!
Everyone were dancing, but they didn't understand the lyrics.
So, when my parents asked «What it's about?» in front of our small crowd, I had to answer...

Now they think I'm mad, because I didn't share TOP sooner with them
They loved it!

Truce: I will fear the night again,
I hope I'm not my only friend.


Ode To Sleep: I'll stay awake
Cause the dark's not taking prisoners tonight
Why am I not scared in the morning?
I don't hear those voices calling
I must have kicked them out
I must have kicked them out

"I swear I heard demons yelling
Those crazy words they were spelling
But I tell 'em
Why won't you let me go
Do I threaten all your plans?"


We all are here basically because Twenty One Pilots have helped us to fight our dark times and thoughts, right?
So you know what...
He literally threatens the plans of demons.

I wake up fine and dandy but then by the time I find it handy
To rip my heart apart and start
Planning my crash landing
I go up, up, up, up, up to the ceiling
Then I feel my soul start leaving
Like an old man's hair receding
I'm pleading, please, oh please
On my knees repeatedly asking
Why it's got to be like this
Is this living free?
I don't wanna be the one be the one to have the sun's blood on my hands

'Cause the dark's not taking prisoners tonight

I must have kicked them out

They told me I was gone
They told me I was gone
But I tell 'em
Why won't you let me go
Do I threaten all your plans?
I'm insignificant
Please tell 'em
You have no plans for me
I will set my soul on fire
What have I become, I'll tell 'em all
On the eve of a day that's forgotten and fake
As the trees, they await, and clouds anticipate
The start of a day when we put on our face
A mask that portrays that we don't need grace
On the eve of a day that is bigger than us
But we open our eyes, cause we're told that we must
And the trees wave their arms and the clouds try to plead
Desperately yelling, there's something we need

I will set my soul on fire
What have I become?
I'm sorry

Is it normal that I can't listen to any other band now? 21P has spoiled me.... Music will never be the same.

RANDOM TROOPER

Miss you Steve ❤️

I second the MGMT suggestion. Though they are different genres, they are a good stepping stone to diversifying your music taste. Also, the whole little dark age album could be an example of something Tyler and josh would produce given some acid

Captain john price

@Talking Kitty Cat still listen to them for or any other bands
