About a year ago was when I first started listening to twenty one pilots.
At first, I was just really confused, because it’s a mess of genres and tempo changes and all kinds of weird stuff. I thought Tyler’s voice was cool but also a little weird. Car Radio was pretty cool though.
But the exact moment I fell in love with them was when I listened to Guns For Hands. It was late one night and I was on tumblr.. and I was contemplating cutting again. Relapsing. I was looking for some kind of distraction, some kind of sign not to do it. Someone had posted something about that song and so I thought, “Why not?”
I youtubed the song and tears started falling down my cheeks. That song utterly and completely touched my heart, my soul. Tyler and Josh may have well have been sitting on the floor of my room right next to me, the way it felt. For the first time in a long time, I felt like I wasn’t alone. The words, the way this was described, it was exactly how I felt. That’s when I knew this band is special.
Since then, I’ve grown to love all the songs, the music videos, the Blurryface happenings (if one could call them that?), the clique (even with a bit of fighting), and Josh and Tyler and their weirdness. But just now, listening to Guns For Hands, really just listening to the words and feeling them, it made me remember how much I love that particular song. This band has changed my life. And I will never be able to thank them enough for that.
