E21.twenty one pilots! 二十一飞行员【晚】
You don't know my brain
The way you know my name
You don't know my heart
The way you know my face
But I know a thing or two about pain and darkness
If it wasn't for this music I don't know how I would have fought this
Regardless, all these songs I'm hearing are so heartless
Don't trust a perfect person and don't trust a song that's flawless,
There's a few songs on this record that feel common
I'm in constant confrontation with what I want and what is poppin’
In the industry it seems to me that singles on the radio are currency
My creativity's only free when I'm playing shows
We don't believe what's on TV
We don't believe what's on TV
Because it's what we want to see
An' what we want we know we can't believe
We have all learned to kill our dreams
I don't care what's in your hair
I just wanna know what's on your mind
I used to say I wanna die before I'm old
But because of you, I might think twice
The Run and Go
Don't wanna call you in the nighttime
Don't wanna give you all my pieces
Don't wanna hand you all my trouble
Don't wanna give you all my demons
You'll have to watch me struggle
From several rooms away
But tonight I'll need you to stay

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.
As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.
As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.
