Heathens: car sirens, background harmony, “watch it,” the talking in the background that give the illusion of voices in your head.
Cancer: the bass that run though your whole body, the sadness in Tyler’s voice, “turn away,” the way Ty says “agony.”
Heavydirtysoul: the weird sounds at the beginning and when the drums start, they way Tyler’s voice sounds in “death inspires me like a dog inspires a rabbit.”
Stressed Out: the little “oh” between verses, the “yo” at the end.
Ride: “I know, it’s hard, sometimes,” the little popping sounds at the beginning, “help me,” “So I’m taking my TIIIIIIIMMMMEEEE, OH! YA!”
Fairly Local: the bass, synth, and “Ah!” at the beginning, “eeh eeh eeh,” the “YEEAAAAHHHH!” and the background screaming of “good people now.”
Tear In My Heart: “But my taste in music is YOUR FACE!” “oh oh oh oh ohhh, ooh ooh ooh ooh” before “you fell asleep in my car…” and the quiet, emotional, “Than I’ve ever been,” at the end.
Lane Boy: the “boing boing” (synth) noices at the beginning, this song makes me want to violently rock my car seat back and fourth to the beat while my mom yells at me while driving lol, the low “
Will they be alive tomorrow?”
The Judge: the WAY TOO LONG opening that everyone hates but secretly loves, “na na na na oh oh,” “Set me FREEEEEE” and “JOSH DUN” near the end.
Doubt: the “please” at the end of the third verse, and “heeeyy heeeyyy” at the end.
Polarize: reminds me of the vine wheres someone throws a bowl of rice down the stairs, “da da da da dada da,” “ You’ll have to come and find me, FIND ME!” scream, and the chill “yeeeaaaahhh.”
We Don’t Believe What’s on T.V: -little ukulele stums- “Yeah yeah yeah!” -violent ukulele strums-, the little whiny “ohhh!” in the middle, and “oh oh oh oh oh (yeah yea yeah)” at the end. The little “yeah yeah yeah” at the end are so friendly they make me smile.
Message Man: “Eh! Eh! Eh! Eh!” “beep beep beep beep beep beep beep boop,” and “my people singing.”
Hometown: every time Tyler sing high notes (they are particularly good in this song), when Josh does the drum thing that sounds like the beginning of “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley, and the “ooh ooh,” throughout the song.
Not Today: “Don’t you test me though, just because I play the piano, Doesn’t mean I am not willing to take you down, (I’m sorry)” and “
Buh buh bah, buh buh bah,” at the end.
Goner: “DON’T LET ME BE!” the scream part of the chorus at the end that abruptly lowers at “you,” and the hard smashes on the drums during the scream chorus. I also love the sound of piano and I imagine Tyler showing Josh this song for the first time and Josh being like “shit dude you’re sad af give me a hug.”
I will do one for Vessel, Self-Titled, and Regional at Best if you want me too. I can also do one for Tyler Joseph’s solo album when he was a sad lil teen boy.
