Vessel

afternoon Driving morning summer winter

One of the slower songs during their sets, Tyler makes heavy use of his ukulele and piano along with some electronic sounds. In the live shows, the band connects with their fans in a profound way, especially during the bridge. As Tyler said in an interview: "The point of the song is to have more than just me singing it, I hate playing this song in front of people who don’t know who we are or don’t want to be part of the show – it doesn''t make sense."

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.

twenty one pilots
I do not know
Why I would go
In front of you
And hide my soul
Cause you're the only one who knows it
Yea you're the only one who knows it

And I will hide behind my pride
To don't know what I think I could lie
Cause there's a screen on my chest
Yea there's a screen on my chest

I'm standing in front of you
I'm standing in front of you
I'm trying to be so cool
Everything together trying to be so cool
(Repeat x 1)

I can't see past my own nose
I'm seeing everything in slow-mo
Look out below, crashing down to the ground
just like a vertical locomotive, that's a train
am i painting the picture that's in my brain
a train from the sky, locomotive, my motives are insane
my flow's not great
okay
i conversate with people who know if i flow
on a song il get no radio play
While you're doing fine
There's some people and I
Who have a really tough time
Getting through this life
So excuse us
While we sing to the sky

I'm standing in front of you
I'm standing in front of you
I'm trying to be so cool
Everything together trying to be so cool
(Repeat x 1)

We're broken we're broken we're broken
We're broken people we're broken people
(Repeat x 3, continues as background)

I'm standing in front of you
I'm standing in front of you
I'm trying to be so cool
Everything together trying to be so cool
(Repeat x 2)
