Think. Create. But most importantly, stay alive.

Screen

I do not know why I would go
In front of you and hide my soul
Cause you’re the only one who knows it,
Yeah you’re the only one who knows it

And I will hide behind my pride
Don’t know why I think I can lie
Cause there’s a screen on my chest
Yeah there’s a screen on my chest

I’m standing in front of you
I’m standing in front of you
I’m trying to be so cool
Everything together trying to be so cool
[x2]

I can’t see past my own nose, I’m seeing everything in slo-mo
Look out below crashing down to the ground just like a vertical locomotive
That’s a train, am I painting the picture that’s in my brain?
A train from the sky, locomotive, my motives are insane
My flow’s not great, okay, I conversate with people
Who know if I flow on a song I’ll get no radio play
While you’re doing fine, there’s some people and I
Who have a really tough time getting through this life
So excuse us while we sing to the sky.

I’m standing in front of you
I’m standing in front of you
I’m trying to be so cool
Everything together trying to be so cool
[x2]

We’re broken
We’re broken
We’re broken
We’re broken people, oh.
We’re broken people, oh.
[x3]

(We’re broken
We’re broken
We’re broken
We’re broken people, oh.
We’re broken people, oh.)
[x2]

I’m standing in front of you
I’m standing in front of you
I’m trying to be so cool
Everything together trying to be so cool
[x2]

  1. I remember when I first saw Twenty One Pilots live. They sang this song and I remember vividly the part repeating “We’re broken people”. I remember closing my eyes and hearing hundreds of voices saying it together. It was the most beautiful thing I have ever heard. The words in this song speak so much truth and it was so comforting hearing everyone in different walks of life and different issues of their own all speaking this one lyric that applies to all of us.

  2. Ok so I’m not sure if it’s too late to write a comment about this song or even how old it is, first I’m 45 and my 12 year old son has listen and asked me to buy the album on ITunes. So I did and one day I’m driving for the heck of it and I turn this album on, I get to Screen and I felt like I was hit by a bat,. This song to me is about God and trying to hide my soul from him. But realizing I can’t cause he sees all like having a screen door or window on my chest….. For me this Stong has. Conversation with God and then at the rap part a conversation with others about singing to God up in the sky cause we are having a tough time in life…..

    Hope it makes sense, not sure if it matters.

    • I completely agree. When I listen to this song I always feel the same way and that no matter how hard you try to put on a fake face for others or maybe even yourself God always knows how you feel deep inside and you can never hide you emotions from him.
