Joseph, Tyler - Blasphemy Lyrics




I start to part two halves of my heart in the dark and I
Don't know where I should go
And the tears and the fears begin to multiply

Taking time in a simple place
In my bed where my head rests on a pillow case
And it's said that a war's led but I forget
That I let another day go by

I wanna be afraid but it seems that these days
I'm caught under water and I'm falling farther
My heart's getting harder, I'm calling my father
Am I screaming to an empty sky?

Empty sky, no way, that's me
'Cause one half of my heart is free
Empty sky, no way, that's me
'Cause the other half of my heart's asleep

Sing a song but don't believe
Blasphemy is just for me
Hypocrite, take your pick
'Cause the poison's on my lips

Can I understand you?
Can I understand you?
Can I understand you?
Can I understand you?

Lights, camera, action,
Satisfaction
At your finger tips no one's lacking stuff
But it's not enough
When it seems that we have enough stuff
Just to blow stuff up

Lights, camera, stop!
We're killing ourselves just to get to the top
But we won't stop talking about what we got
And how we all love it when we're loved a lot

Enough about you, let's talk about me
And how everybody thinks I'm just so free
Free? Did you hear the verse that came first
And how my own body's waging war on me?

I bet you didn't know something as absurd
There's a word that I've said more than any other word
It's sorry, sorry
And I pray that our word was heard

Sing a song but don't believe
Blasphemy is just for me
Hypocrite, take your pick
'Cause the poison's on my lips

Can I understand you?
Can I understand you?
Can I understand you?
Can I understand you?

I want to be alive
When you see my eyes
Can I see your eyes?
Can I see your eyes?

Can I see your eyes?
Can I see your eyes?
Can I see your eyes?
Can I see your—
I want to be alive
When you see my eyes
Can I see your eyes?
Can I see your eyes?

Let the water wash away
Everything that you've become
On your knees, today is gone
And tomorrow's sure to come
Tomorrow's sure to come

  1. Alondra Munoz

    the fact his music is more than sounds and rhythm , its more than a man trying to get rich and richer it is more than just words, its meaning its beauty its a door that he has opened for us its that support that some of us don't have ....its life trough words

    "i bet you didn't know something that's absurd. there's a word i've said more than any other word. it's sorry, sorry. and i pray that my word was heard."
    oh. my. god. if that isn't me i've got no idea what is.

  12. Keir Blank

    Opening verse....dang. This boy can spit

  13. apokalyptikz yt

    *I HAVE CRACKED THE CODE PEOPLE*
    i believe he was struggling with his faith at this point (he is a Christian), and the line that says “i’m calling my father/am i screaming to an empty sky?” references God, whom most Christians reference to as ‘father’. the line that says “i want to be alive/when you see my eyes/can i see your eyes?” is his last hope for God to show Himself to Tyler. finally, in the line “let the water wash away/everything that you’ve become”, he is talking to himself and probably referencing the holy, consecrated water mentioned in the Bible multiple times which was often used before Jesus was born to wash away someone’s sin after they’ve made the necessary sacrifice.

  14. SHAGYY

    Masterpiece

  15. Tristan Shelley

    So this dude made these super deep songs and what not and then in the same album made a 6 minute song about taco bell and that's just considered to be okay

  16. Crazytown

    i don't know why but all day i had this song stuck in my head and i just needed to listen to it. now i'm lying in bed crying.

  17. Thndr_

    The fact a high schooler made this music is incredible to be.

  18. Lander

    yeah this is great, but did anyone else hear the mouse click at about 3:26 or am i going crazy again?

  19. Andrew Nelson

    He sounds a little like eminem in this

  20. RIP Headphone Users

    Anathema?

  21. Cindy Areli Letradø

    STAY ALIVE FOREVER I LOVE TWENTY ØNE PILOTS yes

  22. Christyn Koostachin

    I’m still listening to this 5 years after I first discovered it. Compared to then and now, my past would have never believe my present self.
    Growth takes time, understanding, healing, and so much more aspects specially to your individual selves. Don’t be so be hard on yourself, there was once a time you wanted to be where you are now...

  23. aliens alive

    this is the rap that i just practiced for twenty minutes, what

  24. ImSorrySheWhat

    I want to be alive when you see my eyes.

    That lyric has me crying.

  25. In the M!ddle

    the other half of my hearts asleep... this lyric is beautiful because tyler is implying that after all that has happened like suicide attempts, bad dreary nights, night mares, he’s implying that there’s still hope out there. his heart is with hope and the other half is with blurryface

  26. Gaurav Basu

    I'm getting Eminem vibes. (not saying that Ty's a copycat)

  27. Artio

    in case no one knows this, almost all of tyler's old songs, especially the self titled album, is about God or has a strong christian undertone. for him it wasnt just the music that helped him, it was because he was singing to and for God

  28. Chezzy mouse 89

    0:49 help a krypt save yo peer

  29. Joaquín Yornet

    Omg Tyler joseph themes are beautiful

  30. Hi, I’m still a Piece of garbage

    the drumming kind of sounds of the same pattern in fall away?

  31. Trk Dori

    Well I’m crying thanks ty

  32. scatxla

    omg no one commented for 3 years

  33. bandito 05

    Is it just me or can others imagine Tyler just screaming this song at the top of his lungs in like an empty arena

  34. Drake Wilson

    Imagine how hard it must have been for his parents hearing him write these songs. you all can fight whats happening to you

  35. Meredith M

    beautiful

  36. Dav Mag20

    Just...These lyrics, they are so personal and deeply dark, but wonderful to think about.
    I personally think this songs sounds something like Anathema + Air Catcher (2:12 Totally sound like Air Catcher's Chorus!)

  37. Ema Svrčková

    listen to me
    about 5 minutes ago when I was listening to this, my best friend texted me and admitted that few months ago she was cutting herself. I was shocked, she never told me, she looked always happy, even though I knew something was wrong - before that she said a lot of suicidal things, and told us something about it. it was hard for her but she didn't tell anyone because she thought it's not important and nobody cares. she's okay now but.. you matter. people care but you have to let them know. your friends, family, someone on internet... just somebody. we can help you. please don't hurt yourself. promise. it's hard, it's so hard but it's not worth it. you are valid. you are amazing no matter what. you can do it and we believe in you. <3 stay alive, friend |-/💛

    andie

    u know this is a lyric video right..

    l8tt ;

    @andie yeah i know, but i did this for myself (and others who wanted it) to practice without having the trouble of looking at the lyrics in the video. basically i am trying to memorize it. but thanks for telling me i guess.

    andie

    l8tt ; alright just seemed a bit absurd to me at first lol but that makes sense my bad

    l8tt ;

    @andie it's fine lmao.

  39. Sadie Lawson

    tyler helped us with these songs from
    no phun intended and he didn’t even know

  40. Dimitra

    What a beautiful sound

  41. LilactheRuevet

    this song really hits hard doesn't it.

  42. It's shrimp in a bag!

    Look out! no phun intended has been getting taken off youtube by warner. . . thank you for having our backs for now!

  43. Garamo

    i think it’s been said, or not, but i will say it nonetheless

    this song is about a man (tyler) keeping others from suicide or self harm, but in helping others, he would be speaking blasphemy because he didn’t practice what he was telling others to do


    so this goes out to everyone. you all deserve to live. you matter so much as a human, you have a reason to be here.

  44. 21panicsattheeddsworld &gorillaz

    The 1.7k people who disliked this have committed *BLASPHEMY.*

  45. Myststorm

    Once I tried to count the number of times he's said sorry in his songs.

  46. •Xieon •

    I want to be more like tyler I also struggle with religion, suicidal thoughts, depression, and self harm but tyler wanted to be alive when he wrote this. But I don't want to be here, most people say that suicidal people don't want die they just want the pain to go away but that isn't the case for me I *want* to die. I don't want to be here I wish that I could just die without hurting anyone.

    Emily Buening

    •Xieon • please don’t die. There can still be happiness. You can make it through this. Reply if you ever want to talk. I’d recommend getting a real therapist too

    •Xieon •

    @Emily Buening thank you

  47. Pingu the smol bean with lumbago

    Please God, protect us all under your tender wing. Amen.

  48. Lauren W

    This is probably one of my favorite songs by him, but the verses remind me of a mix of linkin park/Eminem lol

  49. Ravenna Hallow

    ☺ Such a good song. So understandable and relatable.

    "I start to part two halves of my heart in the dark and I
    Don't know where I should go
    And the tears and the fears begin to multiply"

    Tyler is by himself, it's probably night time and he doesn't know what to do. He could give in to his thoughts or he could try to be good. This is probably where the idea of blurryface starts to come in. He is trying to separate these two parts of himself and he doesn't know how and he starts crying and he's afraid. He starts overthinking and his problems get bigger and bigger, he feels overwhelmed.

    "Taking time in a simple place
    In my bed where my head rests on a pillow case"

    This is all happening at night, in a simple place. That would be his room. My guess is that he's just kind of laying there staring at his ceiling which might coincide with the self titled cover.

    And it's said that a war's led but I forget
    That I let another day go by

    This might be him thinking out loud about how the war inside his head is still going on and he's been trying to beat it, but yet another day has passed and nothing has changed. He's falling into the same cycles and patterns and he doesn't want it to be this way, it's just kind of happening.

    I wanna be afraid but it seems that these days
    I'm caught under water and I'm falling farther
    My heart's getting harder, I'm calling my father
    Am I screaming to an empty sky?

    He doesn't want to be afraid, he wants to trust his relationship with God, but he just keeps getting pulled back down by his demons. He uses water here as an analogy for suffering and falling away. Falling away could either be him falling away from God or his family or it could be another metaphor for his feelings. His hearts getting harder, so that's taking about how hes literally been screaming at God asking why he's going through what he's going through and he just feels like he's screaming at an empty sky. He feels abandoned by God.

    Empty sky, no way, that's me
    'Cause one half of my heart is free
    Empty sky, no way, that's me
    'Cause the other half of my heart's asleep

    Now he's taking his doubt in God back hes saying, the empty sky I was questioning? (essentially the absence of God) It's just me. It's not God that's the problem, because he knows that God is kind and loving and just. One half of his heart is free, so that's the good emotions like happiness and laughter and joy, the other half that's asleep is representing the darker stuff and the sadness and harmful things.

    Sing a song but don't believe
    Blasphemy is just for me
    Hypocrite, take your pick
    'Cause the poison's on my lips

    Can I understand you?
    Can I understand you?
    Can I understand you?
    Can I understand you?

    Sing a song but don't believe. This could either reference his church and the songs they sing. the worship might feel fake and he feels guilty about not engaging in the service, or it could be his own songs that he's writing. He might look at it as using his songs as an excuse for not paying attention to God, something to distract him. Blasphemy is just for me, this is probably him feeling like he's the only one whos doubted God. He feels alone and like a bad person for feeling how he does about God. Hypocrite, take your pick... my guess is that's refering to the blasphemy, he's talking about how he's a hypocrite. He does the religious thing, but he doesn't feel like he's really with God like he should be. Can I understand you? is either him asking God if God will allow him to understand God or his audience, seeing if we relate, if he understands us.

    Lights, camera, action,
    Satisfaction
    At your finger tips no one's lacking stuff
    But it's not enough
    When it seems that we have enough stuff
    Just to blow stuff up

    He's talking about the Hollywood affect of people's greed and plasticness. Hes saying these people have it all, money, fame, fancy cars, everything they could ever want and it's not enough. And then when it seems you have enough, just blow stuff up. This is him thinking along the lines of having everything you could ever want, getting bored and just for entertainment, blowing it up so you can have more stuff and do it all over again. This section is really about greed.

    Lights, camera, stop!
    We're killing ourselves just to get to the top
    But we won't stop talking about what we got
    And how we all love it when we're loved a lot

    He's trying to say stop! This Hollywood thing? It isn't working, people are dying just trying to make it, that's not how things should be going. And then he talks about the fame and how people hype it up and talk about how much they love it when they are famous and loved by other people. Its like trying to tell us hey fame isn't as cracked up to be as you think it is.

    Enough about you, let's talk about me
    And how everybody thinks I'm just so free
    Free? Did you hear the verse that came first
    And how my own body's waging war on me?

    Enough about you... he shifts his focus from either the Hollywood affect or from God. He's saying hey I'm still here and ha! you guys think I'm free just because I have God or am a Christian? Think again, did you not hear the first verse? I told you my body's waging a war on me. Everyday he has to fight to stay alive, he has to fight this war every day and he must get so tired.

    I bet you didn't know something as absurd
    There's a word that I've said more than any other word
    It's sorry, sorry
    And I pray that our word was heard

    Here he's either talking to us or God. He admits that sorry is the word he says the most often and hes praying that somehow, somewhere that word was heard. Tyler wants to be loved, he wants to be forgiven, he values what people think and his relationship with God.

    I want to be alive
    When you see my eyes
    Can I see your eyes?
    Can I see your eyes?

    My guess is he's talking about a worship time where hes singing and looking up at the sky. He wants to be alive and see God in a surrendering way and not dead and cold when everything is too late to change or fix. Can I see your eyes? I'm under the impression hes wondering if God is looking down on him and wanting to know if God cares about him.

    Let the water wash away
    Everything that you've become
    On your knees, today is gone
    And tomorrow's sure to come
    Tomorrow's sure to come

    The water is a biblical reference to washing away sins and everything hes done. Hes saying hey if you just surrender and repent then you're going to be forgiven. On your knees... this is the surrender and that day is gone, but the next is sure to come. This gives him hope that even though he messed up today that he has hope hes going to see tomorrow because tomorrow is always a new day to try again.

    "Are you searching for purpose?
    Then paint something,
    Yeah it might be wordless.
    Then write something,
    yeah it might be worthless.
    Pointless curses,
    Nonsense verses,
    You'll see purpose start to surface.
    No-one else is dealing with your demons,
    Meaning maybe defeating them
    Could be the beginning of your meaning,
    Friend."

  68. Mason the Alien

    I'm sorry if this sounds rude but stop fucking praising him. He is a human being and I love him too. He's equal to us so stop acting like he's a god. Tyler Joseph is a great musician and I know fanboys and fangirls will attack me for this but Tyler isn't special, not like he's useless or anything but he's a person. Also, stop assuming you know shit. That's equally annoying. You don't know why he is depressed and you honestly don't need to, and that bullshit comment bout the rubberbands. Fuck off with that. Tyler is a person, he is equal to you and me.

    I can feel my familiar pain laced in his words. He helps us. He was hurting and that hurts me

  81. fellwoes ;

    I start to part two halves of my heart in the dark and I
    Don't know where I should go
    And the tears and the fears begin to multiply
    Taking time in a simple place
    In my bed where my head rests on a pillowcase
    And it's said that a war's led but I forget
    That I let another day go by
    I want to be afraid but it seems that these days
    I'm caught under water and I'm falling farther
    My heart's getting harder, I'm calling my father
    Am I screaming to an empty sky?
    Empty sky, no way, that's me cause one half of my heart is free
    Empty sky, no way, that's me cause the other half of my heart's asleep

    Sing a song but don't believe
    Blasphemy is just for me
    Hypocrite, take your pick
    Cause the poison's on my lips

    Can I understand you?
    Can I understand you?
    Can I understand you?
    Can I understand you?

    Lights, camera, action, satisfaction
    At your finger tips no one's lacking stuff
    But it's not enough when it seems that
    We have enough stuff just to blow stuff up

    Lights, camera, stop! We're killing ourselves
    Just to get to the top
    But we won't stop talking about what we got
    And how we all love it when we're loved a lot

    Enough about you, let's talk about me
    And how everybody thinks I'm just so free
    Free? Did you hear the verse that came first
    And how my own body's waging war on me?

    I bet you didn't know something as absurd
    There's a word that is said more than any other word
    It's sorry, sorry
    And I pray that the word was heard

    Sing a song but don't believe
    Blasphemy is just for me
    Hypocrite, take your pick
    Cause the poison's on my lips

    Can I understand you?
    Can I understand you?
    Can I understand you?
    Can I understand you?

    I want to be alive
    When you see my eyes
    Can I see your eyes?
    Can I see your eyes?

    Can I see your eyes
    Can I see your eyes?
    Can I see your eyes?
    Can I see?
    I want to be alive
    When you see my eyes
    Can I see your eyes?
    Can I see your eyes?

    Let the water wash away
    Everything that you've become
    On your knees, today is gone
    And tomorrow's sure to come
    Tomorrow's sure to come

    this has 6 million views... that's insane

  83. Owen McVey

    This feels like Tyler stole the flow from Eminem

    Cade Newbrand

    That's a pretty far cry from Eminem chief.

    Owen McVey

    Cade Newbrand the rhythms are alike I don’t know why but it just feels that way. I guess I’m trying to say that they are both really talented at rapping, and using rhythms on different beats and piano tracks and such. Not comparing them just their rhythms

  84. Owen McVey

    I’m trying to rap it

  85. Clara Is a name

    Some of these kids don't even know what blasphemy is and it's funny.

  86. vampa champa

    Love is Eternal

  87. Mjacobie3

    It’s interesting to see Tyler question himself, his faith, and his purpose in such a poetic, intense way in such a beautiful song

  88. Jayvin does Art

    i cant stop listening to this song for some reason

  89. Lexi Zuerker

    I love this song and I shouldn’t laugh, but does anyone kinda crack up at the beginning because of the way he says “I”? Lol

  90. Aurora Beach

    Yo I miss those days when I used to listen to this on repeat.

  91. LeTs DiVe RiGhT InTo It

    Cries in emo

  92. Adrian

    Maybe when he got all depressed in high school, he became questioning his faith? It explain the "sing a song but don't believe" as I assume he still went to church. Maybe the part about the eyes at the end represents how you have to be dead to see Heaven, but he already feels dead? And the water is obviously baptism, but I can't really see what the other parts would mean. Anyone got ideas?

  93. Ashton Windshield

    what tyler was going through that led him to write this... i can't even think about that without wanting to cry.


    i'm so very thankful he chose to stay alive. he was in this terrible place years ago, and now he's going to be a father. this is proof that you, you amazing lovely person reading this, can stay alive too.


    i'm so proud of tyler |-/ <3

  94. Kennedy Clough

    i’m so proud of ty for hanging in there for so long, and now he has all these fans to lean on. it all pays off.

  95. Nina Harris

    When I have anxiety attacks... the only thing that will stop me from crying is him... I don’t know why but he seems to understand me better then anyone

    twenty øne weasleys

    Please stay alive, i believe in you and im proud of you, i know that it feels horrible, i know it feels hard, but you'll make it, i know it, you are so strong |-/

  96. indecisionskevlar

    it gives me the chills just by thinking what was going through his head when he wrote these songs

    DestielSnot

    @Kayla :/ My idol killed himself so I understand how you feel. Seeing them depressed or just upset with things is hard to even think about.

    Banditø Stella

    Now him and Jenna are expecting and I'm so excited and happy for them

    Kiya Vassar

    Daniel Wood I’m crying laughing

    Myststorm

    And his poor family, hearing it...
