The duo that is twenty one pilots - Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun - has earned widespread applause for their energetic live sets and distinctive fusion of piano-driven pop and lyrical uplift. No strangers to the road, Twenty One Pilots has built a fervent national following via their electrifying live performances at innumerable headline shows and tours. The band made its Fueled By Ramen debut with a new EP titled Three Songs released Summer 2012 and was followed by a full-length album titled Vessel available now. The band is set to release their second signed album, Blurryface, on May 19, 2015 through Fueled By Ramen. The band was formed in 2009 in Columbus, Ohio by college friends, Tyler Joseph, Nick Thomas, and Chris Salih. Tyler came up with the band's name while studying All My Sons by Arthur Miller, a play about a man who must decide what is best for his family after causing the death of 'twenty one pilots' during World War II because he knowingly sent them faulty parts for the good of his business. Tyler explains that this story of moral dilemma was the inspiration for the name of the band. On December 29, 2009, they released their debut, self-titled album and began touring Ohio. In mid 2011, Thomas and Salih sequentially left due to busy schedules. Both posted farewell notes on the band's official Facebook page. Joseph was then joined by Josh Dun, former live drummer of House of Heroes. Twenty One Pilots bring a mix of piano (sometimes an electronic keyboard or a keytar), synthesizer, drums (also mixed with electronic drums some parts), vocals, and occasionally ukulele. Their songs are poetry-based (written by Tyler and Josh), and when his poetry is too long he stated that he needs to start rapping to fit the lyrics in. Read more on Last.fm.

fairly local
twenty one pilots
I'm fairly local, I've been around
I've seen the streets, you're walking down
I'm fairly local, good people now
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I'm evil to the core,
what I shouldn't do I will
They say I'm emotional,
what I wanna save I'll kill

Is that who I truly am?
I truly don't have a chance
Tomorrow I'll keep a beat,
and repeat yesterday's dance

Yo, this song will never be on the radio
Even if my clique were to pick and the people were to vote
It's the few, the proud, and the emotional
Yo, you, bulletproof in black like a funeral
The world around us is burning but we're so cold
It's the few, the proud, and the emotional

I'm fairly local, I've been around
I've seen the streets, you're walking down
I'm fairly local, good people now
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I'm not evil to the core
What I should'nt do I will fight
I know I emotional
What I wanna save I will try

I know who I truly am
I truly do have a chance
Tomorrow I'll switch the beat
to avoid yesterday's dance

Yo, this song will never be on the radio
Even if my clique were to pick and the people were to vote
It's the few, the proud, and the emotional
Yo, you, bulletproof in black like a funeral
The world around us is burning but we're so cold
It's the few, the proud, and the emotional

I'm fairly local, I've been around
I've seen the streets, you're walking down
I'm fairly local, good people now
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I'm fairly local, I've been around
I've seen the streets, you're walking down
I'm fairly local, good people now
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Yeaaah

I'm fairly local, good people now
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Good people now
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Good people now
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
