Stressed Out — twenty one pilots

stressed out - twenty-one-pilots

I wish I found some better sounds
No one’s ever heard
I wish I had a better voice that sang
Some better words
I wish I found some chords
In an order that is new
I wish I didn’t have to rhyme
Every time I sang

I was told when I get older
All my fears would shrink
But now I’m insecure
And I care what people think

My name’s Blurryface
And I care what you think
My name’s Blurryface
And I care what you think

Wish we could turn back time
To the good old days
When our momma sang us to sleep
But now we’re stressed out
Wish we could turn back time
To the good old days
When our momma sang us to sleep
But now we’re stressed out

We’re stressed out

Sometimes a certain smell
Will take me back to when I was young
How come I’m never able to identify
Where it’s coming from?
I’d make a candle out of it if I ever found it
Try to sell it, never sell out of it
I’d probably only sell one

It’d be to my brother
‘Cause we have the same nose
Same clothes, homegrown a stone’s throw
From a creek we used to roam
But it would remind us of
When nothing really mattered
Out of student loans and tree-house homes
We all would take the latter

My name’s Blurryface
And I care what you think
My name’s Blurryface
And I care what you think

Wish we could turn back time
To the good old days
When our momma sang us to sleep
But now we’re stressed out
Wish we could turn back time
To the good old days
When our momma sang us to sleep
But now we’re stressed out

We used to play pretend
Give each other different names
We would build a rocket ship and then
We’d fly it far away
Used to dream of outer space
But now they’re laughing at our face, saying
“Wake up, you need to make money!”

Wish we could turn back time
To the good old days
When our momma sang us to sleep
But now we’re stressed out
Wish we could turn back time
To the good old days
When our momma sang us to sleep
But now we’re stressed out

Used to play pretend, used to play pretend
Bunny
We used to play pretend, wake up, you need the
Money

We used to play pretend
Give each other different names
We would build a rocket ship and then
We’d fly it far away
Used to dream of outer space
But now they’re laughing at our face, saying
“Wake up, you need to make money!”
