alternative folk indie pop electronic indie

This is a conversation between lead singer Tyler Joseph and his mother. She asks a question regarding her aging, but in a rather grandiose fashion: she asks him to get her a house of gold. They go on to leave what they know to pursue their “dreams.” However, this was a bad decision, and they just did their best to think that this was a good decision, but here’s the kicker: Tyler realizes that life’s dreams and aspirations are pointless, seeing as how you can’t control every aspect of life.

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.

house of gold
twenty one pilots
She asked me, Son, when I grow old,
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone,
Will you take care of me?

I will make you
Queen of everything you see
I'll put you on the map
I'll cure you of disease

Let's say we up and left this town
And turned our future upside-down
We'll make pretend that you and me
Lived ever after, happily

She asked me, Son, when I grow old,
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone,
Will you take care of me?

I will make you
Queen of everything you see
I'll put you on the map
I'll cure you of disease

And since we know that dreams are dead
And life turns plans up on their head
I will plan to be a bum
So I just might become someone

She asked me, Son, when I grow old,
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone,
Will you take care of me?

I will make you
Queen of everything you see
I'll put you on the map
I'll cure you of disease
