A lot a people define twenty one pilot as ¨more than just music¨. If hip hop is
a lifestyle for some people, twenty one pilot is a ¨thinking style¨ to me.
I was intrigues by their sound, mostly, but also by the audience they had. It seemed like half the crowd came for them, and they were pretty intense to me. So, after the show, I bought Regional at Best and put it immediately in my car. I wish now I would have waited in line to meet them but I wasn't alone and we had to go.
Since then, my love for them constantly grew. I must have seen everything about them on Youtube, from interviews to live shows, and I never get tired of hearing them speak or play. I've never felt this drawn to any band before, and music is a big part of my life since my childhood. I just feel like they have so much more to say than any band I know.
Tyler said somewhere that love is not the most powerful feeling, it's fear. And i'm a very fearful person. I fear people, I fear loneliness, I fear love, I fear rejection, I fear failure... I fear life and I fear death. I know what feeling like you're stuck inside yourself is like. The intensity with which I give myself in my studies is the best way I found to forget basically all my problems. I feel numb most of the time. But then, when I listen to twenty one pilots, it's like being alive to me. It may sound silly, but listening to the lyrics brings all my problem back and, in the end of the process, I can focus again.
I wish I could tell personally Josh and Tyler how I feel about their music. It pains me to know I'll never get to give them as much as they gave me. I made a trip to Toronto to see them open for FOB. I put my job and my studies aside, I didn't care about the consequences and, believe me, that's a lot to me. I found this site surfing on the net while I am planning another trip to see them, this time in Detroit. It's near the end of the semester, and I'm poor, but I don't care. I know a lot of people will understand what I mean when I say that I need to see them perform.
A lot a people define twenty one pilot as ¨more than just music¨. If hip hop is a lifestyle for some people, twenty one pilot is a ¨thinking style¨ to me. They represent almost a brand new philosophy, a new kind of religion – forgive me the strong term – in the way they get people to unite, to ¨ponder of greater things¨, to find hope inside the chaos we call life. Above all the things they bring to me, they bring me hope.
Reading the other stories really got to me. It's been a few months since I often need to cry, for no obvious reason. And now it's come out. I know i'm not alone in my struggle, and I'm glad twenty one pilots exists to bring all the broken people together.
I never speak of myself, of my real problems, even to my best friend. And he doesn't nearly enjoy twenty one pilots as much as I do. I wish I had a friend who did, he/she'd get me so much better. So, now, writing in this white box really feels like therapy to me. For this I would like to thank the lady who created this website.
I hope reading this will eventually help someone or at least bring as little joy as it can.
English is not my native tongue, so forgive the mistakes I may have made.
Much love to every
Pilots around the world.
See you at a show.
