LYRICS
When I get home,
You better not be there
We're placing bets you won't
Shed your modesty
And the only thing to leave behind
Is your own skin on the floor

Don't you shy away
Manifest a ceiling when you shy away
Searching for that feeling
Just like an 'I Love You'
That isn't words
Like a song he wrote
that's never heard
Don't you shh...

When you get home
You barely recognize the pictures they
put in a frame
'Cause you shed your modesty
Don't circle the track
Take what you have
and leave your skin on the floor.

Don't you shy away
Manifest a ceiling when you shy away
Searching for that feeling
Just like an 'I Love You'
That isn't words
Like a song he wrote
that's never heard

When I get home
Boy, you better not be there
You're long gone
Shed your modesty
Don't circle the track
Just break the cycle in half
and leave your skin on the floor.

Don't you shy away
Manifest a ceiling when you shy away
Searching for that feeling
Just like an 'I Love You'
That isn't words
Like a song he wrote
that's never heard

that's never heard...

an 'I Love You'
That isn't words
Like a song he wrote
that's never heard

Don't you shy away.

here's what I think is going on: Tyler is being controlled by the bishops. He is stuck in dema. And they are taking control over him. You can see that Tyler is dancing like a puppet. Now he also danced in LoC but that dance was so different than this one. It looks like someone is forcing him or controlling him. Also I watched the whole mv slowed in speed and you can see that Tyler actually seems depressed. Its just something is off. Even their livestream advertisement sounds a bit sad and depressing bc Josh *sighs* and says "see you there". He is being controlled. Also we dk who he is trying to call on the payphone but it looks like he is calling to ask for help. Also, in all the scenes from the gas station you can see tires and other car parts in the bg and I think it suggests that everything is falling apart (maybe it references to the car in hds but we dk yet). Also when he wore a ski mask he tears it up and tries to remove it in some way. Remember when in guns in hands they wore ski masks to be comfortable and Tyler said to Josh that "You can take it off when you're ready". Now in this song Tyler is actually trying to remove the ski mask which suggests that he is ready now. Now the questions that still remain unsolved are
1) whats with the car parts in the bg
2) is the dragon good or bad
3) why is everything falling apart
4) who is he calling

So there is a BBC interview with Tyler and he explains that the song was originally put together because his younger brother wanted to see how the process of making a song was from start to finish. He then goes on to say that “lyrically it turned into talking about being an older brother and the only thing tougher than to figure out what your purpose is, is watching someone whom you love try to figure out their purpose. “That’s what the song is kinda about, is trying to give that person that boost of encouragement and pushing them forward.” -Tyler Joseph

It sounds like if their self titled album, Regional At Best and Vessel had a baby. The hype is real.

I know Tyler and Josh are famous, but I still feel like they are WAY underrated.

Everyone has these theories, so here is mine: Tyler has a beautiful child with a great women and his life is much happier now

2015-2019:
everybody: living the best life
twenty øne piløts: sad and dark music

2020-...:
eberybody: living through a pandemic
twenty øne piløts: happy and jolly music XD

Anyone else getting Regional At Best vibes from this song? The more poppy and upbeat sound, fun synth tones, bright colors... Definitely pumped for this next album.

Tyler should write a book about dema and really explain the story when he’s done making music about it, so everyone can actually know what was happening

i feel like the fact that this eras logo isnt the normal one and is instead a new version of the east is up symbol is important. like maybe dema is trying to hijack the symbol used by the banditos and completely hiding away the old logo

Author — kryptid_ boy

Ok so recap and my theory

They have both been captured by dema, this leads to why this feels different compared to older songs by them and have a different logo, they are being forced to do what dema wants them to do. Another way we can see this is how in all the pictures Tyler is on the left compared to all other eras, this is because dema is a mirrored world. The masks tearing is meant to symbolize them being forced into a new era by dema.

Also if you want to add a bit more, they have become much more poppy and how they're music videos are much simpler to understand, this can be a reference to lane boy and how dema is the embodiment of the dark parts of Tyler's mind that tell him to make music to make money and become popular faster
