EmEm chord         AmAm chord     GG chord      BB chord
Now is the climax to the story
     EmEm chord        AmAm chord         GG chord      BB chord
That gives the demons and angels purpose
EmEm chord       AmAm chord           GG chord      BB chord
They fly around while we are walking
    EmEm chord        AmAm chord      GG chord       BB chord          CC chord
And mold our emotions just to please them

     DD chord             EmEm chord
I am cold, can you hear
       GG chord         BB chord            CC chord
I will fly, with no hope, no fear
        DD chord                 EmEm chord
And the ground, taunts my wings
             GG chord     DD chord           
Plummet as I sing, plummet as I sing

    EmEm chord AmAm chord GG chord BB chord
    EmEm chord AmAm chord GG chord

BB chord                EmEm chord
All we are is an isle of flightless birds
            AmAm chord                              GG chord
We find our worth in giving birth and stuff
                                       BB chord
We're lining our homes against winding roads
And we think the going is tough
   EmEm chord                               AmAm chord
We pick songs to sing, remind us of things that no body cares about
    GG chord                            BB chord
And honestly we're probably more suicidal than ever now
EmEm chord                      AmAm chord                                        GG chord
If you decide to live by, what you think's wrong and what's right
                                         BB chord
Believe me you'll begin to wish you were sleeping
                                           EmEm chord
Your weeping will creep in head and you'll cry
                        AmAm chord                           GG chord
But if we wake up every morning and decide what we believe
                       BB chord                                     EmEm chord  AmAm chord GG chord BB chord
We can take a part our very heart and the light will set us free

CC chord    DD chord             EmEm chord
I am cold, can you hear
       GG chord         BB chord            CC chord
I will fly, with no hope, no fear
          DD chord               EmEm chord
And the ground, taunts my wings
             GG chord     DD chord             CC chord
Plummet as I sing, plummet as I

     DD chord             EmEm chord
I am cold, can you hear
       GG chord         DD chord           CC chord
I will fly, with no hope, no fear
          DD chord               EmEm chord
And the ground, taunts my wings
             GG chord     DD chord
Plummet as I sing, plummet as I

    CC chord
How frustrating, and so degrading
                       DD chord
His time, we're wasting
                                                             EmEm chord
And time will fly by and the sky will cry as light is fading

And he is waiting, oh so patiently
         GG chord                                  DD chord
While we repeat the same routine as we will please comfortability
CC chord
Please think about why you can't sleep in the evening
    DD chord
And please don't be afraid of what your soul is really thinking
EmEm chord
Your soul knows good and evil, your soul knows both sides
         GG chord                        DD chord
And it's time you pick your battle, and I promise you this is mine

  1. Red geek

    A goos strumming pattern is DuD

  2. JoshDunDrums|-/

    Help it’s hard

  3. Some_guy

    Does anybody know the note right before every other note? If you listen to the song you’ll hear the first note of the verse and I’m not sure what it is.

  4. pete wentz from my chemical romance

    tyler never said he has schizophrenia. in the run and go, he said ‘my prayers schizophrenic’, that didn’t mean he was, it meant he was praying for things that might not be real or something like that (i read somewhere)

  5. tortilla chips

    For the end instead of the chords, I just did this: (like everyone else I just changed the end a little)


  6. I would like to bring to attention that Twenty One Pilots’s correct genre, made by their fan base (Clique) because the genres of different didn’t suffice the correct genre of music. The correct genre of music is “Schizophrenic Pop” to honor Tyler Joseph in the way of the way he battles his Schizophrenia, and how you can hear the different voices in the music, it is almost like experiencing the Schizophrenia yourself. If UkuTabs could change the genre name, it is a better explanation of Twenty One Pilots music and what they stand for.

    • Hi, yes, I am A huge Twenty One pilots Fan, But I want to argue that They should not change it to schizophrenic pop, for two reasons.
      1) Schizophrenic pop Is both A) not an actual genre, and B) Never will be an actual music genre.
      2) Tyler, (somewhere else) Said that If he had to put a label to his music that he would call it a burrito. Does that mean that Ukutabs should add the genre “Burrito” to the song, even though it isn’t a proper genre?
      Now yes, I may agree that Tyler’s emotional, heartfelt lyrics don’t fall into a proper genre(because really, they span a lot of different genres) But It is Kinda unrealistic to create a whole new genre just for this song. A fan created genre, that is not properly recognized by any music industry should not be used on a public music site.
      Call it what you will in your own space, (like I do) But in public music industries, Try to keep it real genres.

    • attacusatlas

      You can’t just create a new genre with a snap of a finger. Also, I don’t believe Tyler has ever said he has schizophrenia. All the “voices” are just his inner dialogues, I believe. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong

    • Lyllierose122

      Tyler Joseph doesn’t have schizophrenic. although he does play characters in his music, it adds the story and the progression of the album

    • Tyler Joseph has never come forward and has said that he battles Schizophrenia. That is something that the Clique debated and decided for themselves. Therefore, it is most likely false.

    • MyPrettyWeeper

      Tyler has schizophrenia?

    • Although this is true, he does not suffer from this IRL. He uses this thinking in his music to be different from every one for example

      Bo burnham, wrote a song about country music that explains most music writers making up phrases that people can relate to,

      But Tyler Joseph writes his music in a way “only few would understand”— Message Man

      So if any one takes the time to read this it’s pretty much to explane what this singer/song writer does in music,

      But if I were you, and I really wanted to see who they are personally, (not sponsored or sponsoring XD) go to YouTube watch some Twenty øne piløts vines or watch the show they made about touring, (I think it’s called sleepers or something)

      Have a nice time playing ukulele and (in the words of the odd1sout)


    • Also Tyler doesn’t have Schizophrenia. He had severe depression, but not that.
