twenty one pilots
Transcript of twenty one pilots
Formed in 2009 in Columbus, Ohio
At the time, band members were college friends Tyler Joseph (vocals/piano/ukulele/keytar/synthesizer), Nick Thomas (bass), and Chris Salih (drums). In mid 2011, Thomas and Salih left the band due to busy schedules
Tyler met Josh Dun (drums) through mutual friends and then became the duo known as Twenty One Pilots
They are mixed genre of rock/electronic/pop/rap, but in simpler terms, "schizophrenic pop"
the meaning behind their name
Tyler (vocals) took a theater class at Ohio State and studied a play called, "All My Sons" by Arthur Miller. The play was about a man who made airplane parts for war planes during WW2 and went through the dilemma of knowing he sent out twenty one pilots with faulty parts and knowing it would've been the right thing to do to recall the parts, but he didn't, and then the twenty one pilots ended up dying. His son was one of the pilots. When his daughter found out what had happened, she ultimately blamed the father. In the end, he committed suicide. The theme of the play relates to us as individuals because we constantly go through life making decisions, and sometimes the right decision may not be the decision that benefits you in the moment, and it may take more effort to work for, but it is totally worth it.

"I know what you think in morning,
When the sun shines on the ground"
This is an example of imagery because it creates an image that is it early in the morning and the sun is rising.
"And shows what you have done,
It shows where your mind has gone"
"We've turned our hands to guns, trade in our thumbs for ammunition"
"Let's take this a second at a time,
Let's take this one song, this one rhyme"
"I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep,
I'm trying, I'm trying to sleep,
But I can't, but I can't when you all have,
Guns for hands, yeah"
" 'Cause when the sun sets, it upsets what's left of my
Interested in putting my fingers to my head"
The words "time" and "rhyme"
The phrases "I'm trying" and "but I can't" repeat throughout the choruses of the song.
The morning is being personified by saying that when you wake up, it shows (or reminds) you the things you've done or the things you think of.
The songwriter (Tyler Joseph) compares hands to weapons because he knows that we, humans, especially teenagers, have the capability of causing great harm to ourselves and the power to even take our own lives.
The same -eh- sound repeats itself in "sets", "upsets", "invested", "interest", "interested", and "head", creating
