There are plenty of reasons as to why I became a fan of the band twenty one pilots and I have yet to share my story until now. Pretty much every song off of vessel explains a portion in my life and ill explain why. Growing up for me was difficult I was always an outsider with my thoughts controlling what decisions I've made in life. Some good and some bad. Ode to sleep explains my life because I've spent countless nights awake because I never wanted to fall victim to any terrible thoughts or I just stayed awake because of the thoughts. Holding on to you shows that I'm not alone in all of this mess and migraine is again a battle with my thoughts. House of gold explains me well because I hate to say it I'm a momma's boy. I love my mom and that's all there is to it. Guns for hands is something more personal to me than probably any song on the album. Not only is it my favorite but I've had plenty times where I've had suicidal thoughts or helped a friend stop having suicidal thoughts. I mean I've spent so many nights staying awake and refusing to sleep just to make sure a friend of mine would not do anything they would regret. Guns for hands is by far my favorite song on the album.
The song trees explains the social awkwardness that I have always struggled with. Just knowing I could talk to someone but was too scared of the outcome unbeknownst to me that they could possibly feel the same way I do. Finally, truce explains me because even if today wasn't a good day despite all my flaws I know I have plenty of other days to try again. I can sit here and write pages upon pages of why I became such a huge fan of twenty one pilots. I've never been so close to a band in music and I myself am in a band. If I ever got a chance to just thank them for writing such relatable material and for having then save me from my terrible thoughts and anxiety, I would. I would thank them for all they have done even though I am just one kid. Thats why my first tattoo will be their logo. They understand who I am and the whole moral crossroads aspect of the whole play that Tyler has explained the name has stemmed from explains my life. I have never and will never have so much respect for a band and I will support them in anyway I possibly can. It's just great to know I'm not alone in all of this.
