Period 5 Car Radio
Twenty One Pilots Lyrics Rhyme Tone Symbolism "I ponder of something great." Personification Car Radio I chose this song because I really like this song. The whole song to me is what makes it unique, it's sort of a rap song and most rap songs don't have the same meaning as this one. This song does relate to me, but I feel that it can relate to everyone because it's about having to face your inner demons with nothing to distract you from your thoughts. In my opinion, this song has a special emotional value because of the tone of the artists' voice. The song is mostly dominated by pathos because it's a very emotional song, that has a very deep meaning. "I find over the course of our human existence that one thing consists of consistence." "Oh dear, I don't know if we know why we're here. Oh my, too deep, please stop thinking." "I hate this car that I am driving." I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire
Exhale desire
I know it's dire
My time today
I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
'Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence Sometimes quiet is violent
I find it hard to hide it
My pride is no longer inside
It's on my sleeve
My skin will scream
Reminding me of
Who I killed inside my dream
I hate this car that I'm driving
There's no hiding for me
I'm forced to deal with what I feel
There is no distraction to mask what is real
I could pull the steering wheel I ponder of something terrifying
'Cause this time there's no sound to hide behind
I find over the course of our human existence
One thing consists of consistence
And it's that we're all battling fear
Oh dear, I don't know if we know why we're here
Oh my,
Too deep
Please stop thinking
I liked it better when my car had sound
There are things we can do
But from the things that work there are only two
And from the two that we choose to do
Peace will win
And fear will lose
There's faith and there's sleep
We need to pick one please because
Faith is to be awake
And to be awake is for us to think
And for us to think is to be alive
And I will try with every rhyme
To come across like I am dying
To let you know you need to try to think "My skin will scream, reminding me of who I killed inside my dream..." The artist is giving his skin the qualities of a human by saying that it's screaming. "I have these thoughts so often I ought to replace that slot with what I once bought." The artist uses rhyme to make the song more catchy, and to catch the listener's attention. "I'm forced to deal with what I feel, there is no distraction to mask what is real." The tone of the song is somewhat depressed. It's as if the artist is over-thinking things, or having a mental breakdown while writing the song. Conflict "I have these thoughts so often..." The artist's conflict is between him and himself. He's thinking too much and basically fighting his own thoughts. "'cause somebody stole my car radio and now I just sit in silence." "I could pull the steering wheel." There are many ways to interpret this song, but I feel that the artist could be using his car as a symbol for his life, his car radio as his heart, and his steering wheel is meant to be his mind.
