#Lyrics Migraine-Twenty One Pilots

 

Am I the only one I know
Waging my wars behind my face and above my throat
Shadows will scream that I’m alone
I-I-I I’ve got a migraine
And my pain will range from up, down, and sideways
Thank God it’s Friday cause Fridays will always be better than Sundays
‘Cause Sundays are my suicide days
I don’t know why they always seem so dismal
Thunderstorms, clouds, snow and a slight drizzle
Whether it’s the weather or the ledges by my bed
Sometimes death seems better than the migraine in my head  Suicide is not the answer)
Let it be said what the headache represents
It’s me defending in suspense
It’s me suspended in a defenseless test
Being tested by a ruthless examiner
That’s represented best by my depressing thoughts
I do not have writer’s block my writer just hates the clock
It will not let me sleep I guess I’ll sleep when I’m dead   (Sometimes sleep is the hardest)
And sometimes death seems better than the migraine in my head
Am I the only one I know
Waging my wars behind my face and above my throat
Shadows will scream that I’m alone
But I know, we’ve made it this far, kid
Yeah yeah yeah
I am not as fine as I seem
Pardon, me for yelling and telling you green gardens
Are not what’s growing in my psyche, it’s a different me
A difficult beast feasting on burnt down trees
Freeze frame, please let me paint a mental picture portrait
Something you won’t forget, it’s all about my forehead
And how it is a door that hold’s back contents
That makes Pandora’s box contents look non-violent
Behind my eyelids are islands of violence
My mind ship-wrecked this is the only land my mind could find
I did not know it was such a violent island
Full of tidal waves, suicidal crazed lions
They’re trying to eat me, blood running down their chin
And I know that I can fight, or I can let the lion win
I begin to assemble what weapons I can find
‘Cause sometimes to stay alive you gotta kill your mind
Am I the only one I know
Waging my wars behind my face and above my throat
Shadows will scream that I’m alone  (Unfortunately, the voices, the anxiety tells you that you are all alone, that it is only you in this fight…it’s not true.)
But I know, we’ve made it this far, kid
And I will say that we should take a day to break away
From all the pain our brain has made, the game is not played alone
And I will say that we should take a moment and hold it
And keep it frozen and know that life has a hopeful undertone
And I will say that we should take a day to break away
From all the pain our brain has made, the game is not played alone
And I will say that we should take a moment and hold it
And keep it frozen and know that life has a hopeful undertone
Am I the only one I know
Waging my wars behind my face and above my throat
Shadows will scream that I’m alone
But I know, we’ve made it this far, kid
Made it this far
Made it this far
I don’t know about you. But I have had my share of migraines. But is this song truly about migraines?
I don’t think so. I think it is more about what causes those migraines. Like a fight between yourself. Where your anxiety tells you one thing and you tell yourself something else.
Some of the powerful lines that I thought stand out I have underlined.
The song ends by saying we’ve made it this far, kid. made it this far. made it this far. That is the most powerful thing. We may have this war raging in our head but we made it this far. And we will continue to keep fighting. Music is truly the most powerful coping mechanism that I have found.
