I don't bother anyone
Nervous when I stand
Choking on the circumstance
Only smoking secondhand
Cut us open, spread us out
Dry us in the sand
Lay the fibers side-by-side
And you'll begin to understand
I know it's over
I was born a choker
Nobody's coming for me.
...coming for me
I don't bother anyone
Never make demands
Choking on the circumstance
Self-sabotage is a sweet romance
Seems like all I'm worth is what
I'm able to withstand
Sooner I can realize
That pain is just a middle man.
I know it's over
I was born a choker
Nobody's coming for me.
I see no volunteers
to co-sign on my fears
I'll sign on the line
I'm gonna change my circumstance
I know I need to move right now
I know it's over
I was born a choker
Nobody's coming for me.
(only smoking secondhand)
Like a little splinter
buried in your skin
Someone else can carve it out
But when you've got the pin
It hurts a little less
and you can even push it further in
When your body's screaming out
Trust your mind's listening.
Like a silhouette that you can barely see
As the shadow casts upon the ground
where you'll eventually
lay forever, but the day goes on
the sun moves behind you
You get taller, bolder, stronger,
and the rear-view only blinds you

    I’m really sorry but this is the absolute worst TOP track I’ve ever heard. It is the most bland, pathetic, stupid 21 pilot’s song ever. Everything from the terrible drums, to the annoying mm-hmm sample that plays throughout the song. The rap verse isn’t absolutely terrible but is still way to short.

    8m views in two weeks and sadly they still feel like they need to prove themselves and not being considered rock. Who else has a DUO who takes care of drums, percussion, piano, synth, vocals, rap, guitar, bass, ukulele and who knows what else!?!

      They have nothing to prove! Real music is still trying to creep its way through mainstream 21st century and the record companies can't take it!

    just realized how much choker sounds like bandito- also, "i could take the high road, but i know that i'm going low" and "i know it's over, i was born a choker" both imply that that's just the way it is; accepting and/or surrendering. choker is more upbeat or happy sounding, probably since "sai is propaganda," and propaganda has to be appealing to everyone, even if it is misleading. idek if these were supposed to be related, but the instrumental and the rap in both of these songs sound really similar to me. idk, i'm tired lmao

    So I think that Josh is ignoring Tyler because it is not Tyler it is blurryface, that is why there is no handshake. That is how Josh knows it's Tyler so if he is just not even acknowledging him untill Tyler's vessel is running away and Josh knows he has to save it and keep is safe untill Tyler returns from Trench.
