Joseph, Tyler - Drown Lyrics




Here I come, come to you in the very clothes
That I killed, killed you in and now I know I'm alone
I walk to you, rain falls from you
Can you wash me, can you drown me?

I wanna be a lot of things, so much pent up inside of me
I wanna be stronger, too long I've sat here undecidedly
Planning strategy, half of me knows it's all just a fallacy
Failing miserably, drastically and then I crash dramatically
Into a wall I've hit a hundred times before
And yet I still ignore the dark red blood stains on the floor
And I'm back in front of you, Lord, with blood on the floor
Is the blood mine or yours? Don't wanna do this anymore

Back and forth between being me and who you call me to be
You see a man free who thinks he has to buy a key
To a door but he can't 'cause he's poor and he can't
Fall down anymore 'cause he's already on the floor
And his heart is broken and all and this is his call
But it's more of a cry 'cause he will try nine times
To realize nine crimes but he has more than nine lives
So he picks himself up and keeps climbing for the prize again

Here I come again to you
Just to show that blood soaked through
Through my bones and all I own
Is there a way for me to grow?
I walk to you, rain falls from you
Can you wash me, can you drown me, please?

Every time I feel selfish ambition is taking my vision
My crime is my sentence, repentance is taking commission
It's taking a toll on my soul, I'm screaming submission and
I don't know if I am dying or living
'Cause I will save a face for name's sake
Abuse grace, take a aim up to obtain a new name in a newer place
But my name is lame, I can't walk and I ain't the same
And my name became a new destiny to the grave and
They say the ocean's blue, but it's black right now
In the dark, on the sand, looking out at my crowd
Depression and drowning singing now the full parts
And lightning reveals where the ocean stops and the sky starts
I've been told by the sky that the ocean I shall win
But it's hard for me to see where ocean stops and sky begins
A random strikes of light remind me of what is true
But right now the ocean's blacker than black, the sky is too

Joseph, Tyler Drown Comments
  1. Malifalitic0

    I literally drowned several times when I was younger.

  2. takethistoyourgrave

    maybe i should leave
    all im doing is causing shit

  3. Øllie E8

    1:22 gives me chills every time

  4. julie

    haven't listened to that song in ages but it still gives me goosebumps.....

  5. דניאל צמח

    Its amazing how tyler can made me feel a whole emotional journey with in only three minute of a song.
    I jast love him.

  6. Icup

    There are 2 kinds of people. People singing to this and people listening to every word while being surrounded with all kind of emotions.

  7. Chip Animates

    Hopefully I’m still listening to this in 2021

  8. ̶M̶a̶y̶a̶h̶u̶a̶ I̶d̶k̶

    2:22 Fall away.

  9. Naijah Turner

    Weird how he used the same rap verses in other songs

  10. Boi

    I wish this was the one available on Spotify. Future of the Purples version just isn't this good :(

    Maarkus Kakus!

    Nintendo

  11. blurry face

    where is drum beats ??

    I- Don't-Know?

    This is only Tyler, I don't think Josh is in this song. I could be wrong, though.

  12. Ela T

    soooooo
    He will try NINE times???
    To realize NINE crimes???
    He has more than NINE lives???
    I think he was planning dema a loooooooooong time ago

  13. Leo

    A few weeks ago, I fell again. I relasped. Me and my girlfriend broke up and she replaced in less than a week and a bunch of drama happened between us. She convinced me that I was irreplaceable and than she proved I was replaceable. It hurt. Now I find myself turning back to Tyler. He saved my life less than a year ago, his words convinced me I was worth something. Now I'm back, crying and screaming along to his music. I'm just a kid... I shouldn't have to feel this much at once...

    Lou

    Oh no :(
    I’m mortified. No person should ever go through what you’re going through. I know there’s more than the break-up. Remember that you’re strong and brave. I really think that. You simply have to learn how to channel your strength. Just like Tyler did.

  14. Jebron Lames

    it sure is something how much tyler and his music have changed and how stagnant i've remained that i keep coming back to this. you guys still think tyler has his "drown" days?

  15. Brenden Garnett

    i remember finding this at 15
    almost 5 years ago
    still come here when i want to kill myself
    hopefully this gets buried

  16. Silver N' Gold

  32. Jonah Shade

    we made it to 2020 ||-// stay alive. we've made it this far, kid

  33. xXSavageBoyXx 1232

    About three weeks ago I died for the 3rd time in my 15 years of being on this earth, I keep saying “god won’t let me live, or let me die” but the more I think about it the the odder it seems, the 1st time I died was when I was 9 after getting a brick slammed into my head, the 2nd was when I was 12 from an OD on meth, and the most recent was from a seizure from almost freezing to death because my parents locked me out of the house for the entire night in 28 degree weather because I was 7 minutes late on getting home. But I’ve just been thinking lately that there has to be a reason, some kind of reason why I’m still here, but I just can’t seem to find it. So I’m making my own reason, I want to help the people who need it. I don’t give a fuck if it’s depression, anxiety, ptsd, the loss of someone or something that meant something to you, or your just feeling plain fucking alone in the world, because I know what that’s like, I could be at a point where there could be 100 people around me and I would still feel alone. If you’ve read to this far, than I know your obviously going through something, so please, please let me know how tf I can help you. My insta is - @7uc3f3r
    Just hmu whenever, okay, you don’t have to be alone in the world, because if nobody else cares about you, whether I know you or not, I still fucking care about you, I swear. Stay strong 💪🏼

    Ayla Cem

    Wow. You're right, the world does have a plan for you, and i think you're going in the right direction. Im also making efforts to help people with mental health, since i lost my father to depression and ive nearly pulled the metaphorical trigger on myself. Im okay now, but not everyone is.
    But im still just a teenager. The only way i can currently help people is through the internet. Every day, i go through the newest comments on specific Twenty One Pilots videos (including this one) and try to guide people to the right places. My small efforts are probably worthless, but I'm sure you will find a way to save people who think they're alone.
    This is longer than i thought it'd be, so I'll end this off by saying good luck to you :)

    xXSavageBoyXx 1232

    Much thanks to you 🙏🏼 and just know that what you say to help people, doing what your doing to at least make an effort to help others who need it has more worth than you can believe, truly

  42. Kwwin

    Back in April of 2019 this was my favorite song that I would listen to every day with no emotion, just empty inside. It hurts my heart now that I got that far deep into depression that I didn't have the energy to realize that it was that bad. It was a dark place in my life for whatever reason.

  50. Charlize Downey

    I just realized that this whole verse is also in the song fall away by twenty one pilots

    “Every time I feel selfish ambition
    Is taking my vision
    And my crime is my sentence
    Repentance is taking commission
    It's taking a toll
    On my soul
    I'm screaming submission and,
    I don't know if I am dying or living
    'Cause I will save face
    For name's sake
    Abuse grace
    Take aim to obtain a new name
    And a newer place
    But my name is lame
    I can't walk and I ain't the same
    And my name became
    A new destiny to the grave”

    That’s neat :]

  68. JustAnotherPieceofTØPTrash

    Here I come, come to you in the very clothes
    That I killed, killed you in and now I know I'm alone
    I walk to you, rain falls from you
    Can you wash me, can you drown me?

    Tyler is using religion as his theme. Its a metaphor for his walk with God, hes coming to God, his father in the same clothes he killed in. This represents how Christ died on the cross for sin, he is using the bloody shirt as a way of taking ownership of the messed up things hes done and hes sorry. He feels terrible and he feels alone. Hes in the midst of his greatest despair and he's walking to god as the rain is falling and hes pleading. Wash me (forgive me of my sins and help me get better) or drown me (kill me, take me out so I don't have to feel this anymore). He wants an answer because he doesn't think he can keep going in purgatory.

    I wanna be a lot of things, so much pent up inside of me
    I wanna be stronger, too long I've sat here decidedly
    Planning strategy, half of me knows it's all just a fallacy
    Failing miserably, drastically and then I crash dramatically
    Into a wall I've hit a hundred times before
    And yet I still ignore the dark red blood stains on the floor
    And I'm back in front of you, Lord, with blood on the floor
    Is the blood mine or yours? Don't wanna do this anymore

    Tyler wants to do so much, he wants to be someone, he wants to do music, he wants to make a difference in the world and all of these thoughts and feelings and emotions are bottled up inside of him and he doesn't know how to get it out accept through music. He wants to be strong, but hes torn. Hes tried planing strategies to try to outsmart his head and nothing ever works. He fails and he keeps hitting the same wall, the same problem over and over again and he's tired. Still, he gets up and he tries some more and hits the same wall again and again. He's back in front of God pleading for help. The blood on the floor could either be God's meaning the sacrifice or it could be Tyler's from all the attempts he's made to try to find whatever hes looking for or get over whatever problem he's facing. He's tired, he's feels weak, he's tired of living, he doesn't want to go on anymore.

    Back and forth between being me and who you call me to be
    You see a man free who thinks he has to buy a key
    To a door but he can't 'cause he's poor and he can't
    Fall down anymore 'cause he's already on the floor
    And his heart is broken and all and this is his call
    But it's more of a cry 'cause he will try nine times
    To realize nine crimes but he has more than nine lives
    So he picks himself up and keeps climbing for the prize again

    He's going back and forth. He wants to do what he wants to do, which Christians refer to as sin nature but he know who God calls him to be. He has to make a decision and he's finding it hard to choose. God looks at Tyler as someone who is forgiven and loved and is already free because Tyler has accepted God into his life and he has a relationship with him, but Tyler doesn't feel free, he doesn't know how to reach out and take the freedom. He's at the end of his will to try anymore, he's hit rock bottom. He's saying he has 9 crimes, 9 things he struggles with, but he has more than 9 lives, which is Gods forgiveness, the 9 crimes almost don't matter because God is going to show mercy.The number 9 gives him hope. Yes, Tyler has messed up, but he's going to get another chance. He gets up and tries again and he keeps going even though he doesn't want to. 9 also probably parallels with the 9 bishops of Dema and each of them represent something he's struggling with, which are the sins he's trying to overcome to be a better person and get closer to God.


    Here I come again to you
    Just to show that blood soaked through
    Through my bones and all I own
    Is there a way for me to grow?
    I walk to you, rain falls from you
    Can you wash me, can you drown me, please?

    Now the blood is a parallel of the sin or the bad things that have has cause and effect on his life. Its seeped in to every aspect, his thoughts, his feelings, his actions, everything. He wants to know is there anyway I can get out of this? Is there anyway I can grow and fix this so my life isn't like this. He walks to God and rain falls down from him and Tyler is ok with being forgiven or dying, he thinks God will choose the right one for him, but he just wants an answer.


    Every time I feel selfish ambition is taking my vision
    My crime is my sentence, repentance is taking commission
    It's taking a toll on my soul, I'm screaming submission and
    I don't know if I am dying or living

    Ok here I think we find one of the nine things that he struggles with: selfish ambition. He sometimes gets blinded by wanting to do things his way and how he wants to do it. Tyler's sensitive though even him doing this is punishment enough, that the fact he did it is going to bother him. He's hard on himself and his way of repenting is surrendering and saying hey I'll do what you want, just tell me God. It's taking a toll on him though, he's tired of always loosing this fight and he's screaming at himself to submit and be a better person, but he still messes up sometimes. He doesn't know if he's alive or dying because he's so sad all the time and at this point he probably wants to die.

    'Cause I will save a face for name's sake
    Abuse grace, take a aim up to obtain a new name in a newer place
    But my name is lame, I can't walk and I ain't the same
    And my name became a new destiny to the grave and
    They say the ocean's blue, but it's black right now
    In the dark, on the sand, looking out at my crowd

    Here he's talking about how he will maybe not admit things in person like what hes struggling with to keep the image hes trying to portray of a happy perfect life. Tyler's also talking about how people abuse the grace of God and just expect it every time, they look at it as something they are entitled to. The new name part might be a biblical reference to heaven, when you get to heaven, you are supposed to have a name that's not your earthly name that only God knows and once you die, you are referred to as that name in heaven. The new place is probably referring to heaven as well. Then he goes back to talking about his earthly name, Tyler and is saying, its not that great. He can't walk because he's tired and bloodied and bruised and he's not like other people, he's not the same. He feels like he's the only one who thinks like this. His name is a destiny to the grave, he's feeling hopeless, he feels like because hes so different, possibly the only one, that he just wants to die. He's lacking companionship and community. He talks about the ocean which is his way of saying, yeah the ocean might be blue (life going well for everyone else around him) but its black for him. (things aren't going his way, hes sad, hes depressed, hes tired) He then uses standing on shore as an analogy for being on stage and the clique is his crowd. Other peoples lives and oceans may be blue, but ours is black. When he looks out at his crowd he sees people with other black oceans and lives too and together we form this clique that gives Tyler the companionship and community hes been looking for.

    Depression and drowning singing now the full parts
    And lightning reveals where the ocean stops and the sky starts
    I've been told by the sky that the ocean I shall win
    But it's hard for me to see where ocean stops and sky begins
    A random strikes of light remind me of what is true
    But right now the ocean's blacker than black, the sky is too

    Here hes talking about his shows. All these people come together that have depression and feel like they are drowning too and these kids are singing the lyrics back to him. The lighting is a metaphor for life and when the stage lights go up and they walk out of that venue, real life hits him in the face. The ocean is representing the clique throughout this and the ocean is a metaphor for how our brains work differently. When he's on stage he's unaware of where life begins and his clique ends, they become one and he shares a moment with them. The sky in this case is God and God has promised him that hey I'm going to give you that crowd and now that he has it, hes trying to balance his relationship with God and this clique he's been given. He might loose sight of some things for a while but then lightning (life) reminds him that God is sovereign and keeps Tyler in check. Then he says the oceans blacker than black and the sky is too, so the kids in his crowd are really sad and they have black oceans and at this moment Tyler isn't hearing anything from God and he feels alone.

    Also when he says can you drown me please? The way he says “please” it hurts me so much that our smol bean went through this too. I am so proud of his growth and i wish I can just tell him how much his music has helped me...well, stay alive. :) Thank you twenty one pilots. And josh you too. Your just as amazing and we appreciate and love you both immensely. I hate that people call them emo because their not. Just because they talk about serious topics that scare other people doesn’t mean their emo. They are simply being straight forward about hard topics that people don’t like to talk about and their honesty is what we love. They even say themselves that they want to raise awareness and get people thinking. I’m just so happy I got into them. :D please stay alive. Whoever may read this you are worthy, everyone deserves a life including you. We are all beautiful people inside and out and we all deserve happiness. (Lol I’m such a hypocrite. When I’m the one with crippling depression saying YAY LIFE. 😂 srry but for real guys. This is why the cliques here- to keep us alive.

I’m not doing homework cos I’m to busy listening to music and crying. My behaviours getting worse. I’m on a waiting list for therapy but I’ll have to kill myself to get actual help.
