✖ twentyøne piløts | 7 songs to listen to this week

Hey, happy Monday you lovely people! I hope your week is filled with a bunch of amazing things and lots of coffee. Or tea, or basically whatever floats your boat to a way or another.

My week is going to be filled with train journeys, a lot of music, work, uni, a student party and a lot of music once again. This week, I wanted to share seven songs for you to listen to from Twentyone Pilots. It's one of my favourite bands and they've got some amazing lyrics and sounds. Also, I'm dedicating this week for them, as they're coming to Helsinki for a gig, and you guessed it right! I'm off to see them.

This is my second time I'll see them perform live, and I bet I won't be disappointed this time as they were so good the last time I saw them, that I've become to a conclusion that they really can't be bad. If Twentyone Pilots isn't for you, do not worry - I've got some goodies for you next Monday. Either way, I encourage you to take this journey into their music if you haven't. It's always fun and good to try new things out.

Oh, I know how to levitate up off my feet, and ever since the seventh grade I learned to fire-breathe. And though I feed on things I fell, you can learn to levitate with just a little help. Learn to levitate with just a little help.
✖ Levitate
Levitate is one of my favourite songs from their newest album, "Bandito". They are currently on the "Bandito Tour" and I believe they're going to play a bunch of songs from the album. Including this.
It has a simple and catchy tune in it, which itself makes it sound good and when you pay attention to the lyrics, it'll be better, let me tell you that.
It's only time before they show me, why no one ever comes back. With details from beyond.
✖ Leaving the City
This is kind of a sad song (which one of their songs isn't, to be honest?), but this is something I really can relate to. I left the small town I used to live in shattered, feeling a bit lost (a bit more lost than I am now), I left it because it had nothing to offer me, I didn't like the atmosphere, so many things had happened that honestly, and I am being brutally honest here now, I would not be on this planet if I had stayed. I would have killed myself. Times were tough at the time, and even almost 8 years later, I can find songs that hit me in such a deep level, reminding me of the things I've been through. However, this song doesn't remind me of the bad things, it tells me that I made it out alive and that's all that matters.
We don't believe what's on TV, because it's what we want to see. And what we want we know we can't believe, we have all learned to kill our dreams.
✖ We Don't Believe What's on TV
This is such a funny song and it has some killer ukulele chords in it! And holy crap it's hard to play, especially if you've got short fingers like I do. I mean, I've got serious baby hands it's ridiculous. But I'm determined to learn to play this with the ukulele by the end of the year, I'll keep you posted how that goes along.
I'm fairly local, I've been around. I've seen the streets you're walking down. I'm fairly local, good people now.
✖ Fairly Local
This one is such a powerful song. If you need a boost for basically anything, this should be one of your go-to songs. Not because of the lyrics, but the tempo and depth of the song. It instantly gives me the "I can kick ass today" -mood. It's odd I know if you listen to the lyrics.
No one really knows his mind, and no one knows behind his eyes. The man deserves a medal but he's never really won a prize, before.
✖ Johnny Boy
This is one of the most confusing songs they've ever created, and it was so fun to figure out what the lyrics could be about. They've got so cryptic lyrics in their songs at times, and that's what I really like their songs. They're puzzles I want to solve. And I really love puzzles. What do you think the song could be about?
And I know that I can fight, or I can let the lion win. I begin to assemble what weapons I can find, 'cause sometimes to stay alive you gotta kill your mind.
✖ Migraine
This song is not about a migraine, it's about mental health. It's about depression and suicidal thoughts. However, it has some hope in it too, as "we've made it this far" and "know that life has a hopeful undertone." It's deep and one of the most relatable songs I've listened.
You fell asleep in my car I drove the whole time. But that's okay, I'll just avoid the holes so you sleep fine. I'm driving, here I sit cursing my government for not using my taxes to fill holes with more cement.
✖ Tear in My Heart
And for the last but not least, the tear in my heart because sometimes you've got to bleed to know that you're alive and have a soul.
