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.

stressed out
twenty one pilots
I wish I found some better sounds no one?s ever heard
I wish I had a better voice to sing some better words
I wish I found some chords in an order that is new
I wish I didn?t have to rhyme everytime I sang
I was told when I get older all my fears would shrink
But now I?m insecure and I care what people think

My name?s Blurryface and I care what you think
My name?s Blurryface and I care what you think

Wish we could turn back time
To the good old days
When our mama sang us to sleep
But now we?re stressed out
[x2]
We?re stressed out

Sometimes a certain smell will take me back to when i was young
How come I?m never able to identify where it?s coming from?
I?d make a candle out of it if I ever found it
Try to sell it, never sell out of it
I?d probably only sell one
It?d be to my brother, ?cause we have the same nose,
Same clothes, home grown, a stone?s throw from creek we used to roam
But it?d remind us of when nothing really mattered
Out of student loans and treehouse homes, we all would take the latter

My name?s Blurryface and I care what you think
My name?s Blurryface and I care what you think

Wish we could turn back time
To the good old days
When our mama sang us to sleep
But now we?re stressed out
Wish we could turn back time
To the good old days
When our mama sang us to sleep
But now we?re stressed out

We used to play pretend, give each other different names
We would build a rocket ship and then we?d fly far away
Used to dream of outer space
But now they?re laughing at our face saying
?Wake up you need to make money?
Yo
[x2]

Wish we could turn back time
To the good old days
When our mama sang us to sleep
But now we?re stressed out
Wish we could turn back time
To the good old days
When our mama sang us to sleep
But now we?re stressed out
[x2]

We used to play pretend, used to play pretend, money
We used to play pretend, wake up you need the money
Used to play pretend, used to play pretend, money
Used to play pretend, wake up you need the money
We used to play pretend, give each other different names
We would build a rocket ship and then we?d fly far away
Used to dream of outer space
But now they?re laughing at our face saying
?Wake up you need to make money?
Yo
