Verse:
 G                                     C
There's miles of land in front of us.
                                           Em
And we're dying with every step we take.
                                         D
We're dying with every breath we make.
                       G
And I'll fall in line.
                                  C
The stranger's back is all I see.
                                     Em
He's only a few feet in front of me.
                                 D
And I'll look left and right sometimes,
                  G
But I'll fall in line.
                         C 
No one looks up anymore,
                                            Em
Cause you might get a rain drop in your eye.
                                D
And heaven forbid they see you cry,
                G
As we fall in line.
                                   C
And about this time of every year,
                                    Em
The line will go to the ocean pier
                             D
And walk right off into the sea.
                       G
And then we fall asleep.

Interlude -x3-: G  C  Em  D

Verse:
G                               C
And as we near the end of land,
                                                Em
And our ocean graves are just beyond the sand.
                             D                    G
I ask myself the question, "Why... I fall in line?"


                                  C
Then out of the corner of my eye,
                              Em
I see a spaceship in the sky 
                           D
and hear a voice inside my head.
                      C   G   D   
"Follow me instead."
                      C   G   D   
"Follow me instead."
                      C   G   D  
"Follow me."
                      C   G   D  
"Follow me."

Interlude: G   C   Em   D      

Verse:
G                                 C
Then the wages of war will start
                                    Em
Inside my head with my counterparts.
                                                      D
And the emotionless marchers will chant the phrase,
                            G
"This line's the only way."
                                C
And then I start down the sand.
                                       Em
My eyes are focused on the end of land.
                               D
But again the voice inside my head says,
                      C   G   D
"Follow me instead."
                      C   G   D
"Follow me instead."
                      C   G   D
"Follow me."
                      C   G   D
"Follow me instead." 
                      C   G   D
"Follow me instead." 
                      C   G   D
"Follow me instead." 
                      C   G   D
"Follow me instead." 
                      C   G   D
"Follow me instead." 

Verse:
G                         C
Take me up, Seal the door.
                                 Em
I don't wanna march here anymore.
                             D
I realize that this line is dead.
                       G
So I'll follow you instead.
                                    C 
So then you put me back in my place,
                             Em
So I might start another day.
                         D
And once again I will be,
                      G
In a march to the sea.

GIGI

Um no you. You cant just say “no” at someones opinion even if you disagree with them.

ribbons

GIGI I’m pretty sure you can because thats an opinion in itself

LUBBY

Exactly ribbons

Battle scars to show I have lived

I’ve always enjoyed Twenty one pilots, but this song has been the most meaningful one to me. Keep doing what you do because you save lives, like mine.

I love twenty one pilots. Their so inspiring because they make music for the point of just making it, or making a point. They don’t care if people don’t like it, but we love it, and hopefully they know that. They save freaking lives, that’s just how powerful their music, and themselves are. Keep doing what your doing and NEVER stop because we love it!

Also just a tip with the song, in my opinion it sounds sweeter if you do C, F, Am, G. You don’t have to just a tip :)

Pan!c at my 21 boys romance

SpotifyPremium

No, I’m not crying, you’re crying. This freaking band means the freaking world to me.
