Message Man Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
No no no no no no
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Verse 2
The loser hides behind
A mask of my disguise
And who I am today
Is worse than other times
You don't know what I've done
I'm wanted and on the run
I'm wanted and on the run
So I'm taking this moment to live in the future
Verse 3
Release me from the present
I'm obsessing, all these questions
Why I'm in denial
That they tried this suicidal session
Please use discretion
When you're messing with the message man
These lyrics aren't for everyone
Only few understand
Verse 4
No no no no no no
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Verse 5
You don't know my brain
The way you know my name
You don't know my heart
The way you know my face
You don't know what I've done
I'm wanted and on the run
I'm wanted and on the run
So I'm taking this moment to live in the future
Verse 6
Release me from the present
I'm obsessing, all these questions
Why I'm in denial
That they tried this suicidal session
Please use discretion
When you're messing with the message man
These lyrics aren't for everyone
Only few understand
Verse 7
My people singing
My people singing
Verse 8
Hope you're dead 'cause how could you sleep at a time like this?
People they rhyme like this, we're all impressed by this
They rip it, flip it but these are just triplets
Wrote this in three minutes, three words to a line
It's just poetry divided, I'm the kind of guy
Who takes every moment, he knows he can fight it
And music to use it, for others to use it
You're dead 'cause how could you sleep at a time like this?
Verse 9
Life is up here but you comment below
When the comments will always become common motivation
To promote you choose next episode
So your brain knows to keep going even though hope
Is far from this moment but you would not know it
Gets better when morning finally rears its head
Together we'll lose this, remember the future
Remember that morning is when night is dead
Verse 10
Release me from the present
I'm obsessing, all these questions
Why I'm in denial
That they tried this suicidal session
Please use discretion
When you're messing with the message man
These lyrics aren't for everyone
Only few understand
Verse 11
Please use discretion
When you're messing with the message man
These lyrics aren't for everyone
Only few understand
Verse 12
My people singing
My people singing
My people singing

4 Thoughts and Song Meanings

The Twenty One Pilots song "Message Man" is another one of my favorites. It is very catchy. Let's start the interpretation! When Tyler Joseph (the lead singer) says, "A loser hides behind, a mask of my disguise, and who I am today, is worse than other times, you don't know what I've done, I'm wanted and on the run, I'm wanted and on the run, so I'm taking this moment to live in the future" This is saying that he truly feels as if he is a loser hiding behind his face. Also, who he is today (his personality), is worse than it was at other times of his life. Tyler than is talking about how you don't know what he's done, and that he really could be wanted, and on the run. But you don't know his backstory well enough to be the judge of that. Tyler feels that living in the future would be better than now. Next, Tyler sings the chorus, or repeating part of the song that gets the point across, which is; "Release my from the prresent, I'm obsessing, all these questions, why I'm in denial that they tried this suicidal session, please use discretion when your messing with the message man, these lyrics aren't for everyone, only few understand." This is saying that he is sick of the present, and that he doesn't really think that he needs suicidal therapy. Tyler also feels that only people suffering will understand the lyrics that are said by him. Next, Tyler sang, :You don't know my brain,
The way you know my name, You don't know my heart, The way you know my face, You don't know what I've done, I'm wanted and on the run, I'm wanted and on the run,
So I'm taking this moment to live in the future..." This is all basically saying that you have no idea who he truly is. You know his name, but have no idea what is truly going on in his brain. You may know his face, but have no idea what's going on in his heart, and what he is feeling.

You don't know his backstory or who he is on the inside, if he doesn't express it. Then, Tyler repeats the chorus. Afterwars, Tyler does a small rap. He says, "Hope you're dead 'cause how could you sleep at a time like this, people they rhyme like this, we're all impressed by this, they rip it, flip it but these are just triplets, wrote this in three minutes, three words to a line, It's just poetry divided, I'm the kind of guy who takes every moment he knows he can fight it, and music to use it, for others to use it, your dead cause how could you sleep at a time like this?" That is the first part of his rap. This means that he doesnt understand how someone could slep at a time like this in their life, and that people are impressed but he raps that people do, but it's just poetry divided. Tyler is also saying that he is the kind of guy that takes every moment that he can to fight what's going on in his brain. He writes his music for himself and others to get help and use it. The next part of his rap is; "Life is up here, but you comment below, when the comments will always become common motivation, to promote you choose next episode, so your bbrain knows to keep going, even though hope is far from this moment, but you and I know it gets better when morning finally rears it's head, together we'll lose this, remember the future, remember that morning is when night is dead." Tyler is saying that our society is based off of comments of other people, and that this becomes motivation. For example, if someone calls you fat, it's motivation for the person to become skinnier. THERE IS NO PROBLEM WITH BEING FAT!!! But some people feel the need to put people down for you. REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL IN YOUR OWN WAY AND DON'T NEED TO CHANGE FOR OTHERS!!!! Tyler says to keep going, even though you are no where near hope. Things will get better, so just stau strong. Think about your future! Then, the song repeats the chorus multiple times, then the song is over. Thanks-- Emma
