Twenty One Pilots – Migraine lyrics

Am I the only one I know
Waging my wars behind my face and above my throat.
Shadows will scream that I'm alone
.

I-I-I I've got a migraine.
And my pain will range from up, down, and sideways.
Thank God it's Friday cause Fridays will always be better than Sundays
Cause Sundays are my suicide days
.

I don't know why they always seem so dismal.
Thunderstorms, clouds, snow and a slight drizzle.
Whether it's it the weather or the ledges by my bed
Sometimes death seems better than the migraine in my
head.
Let it be said what the headache represents
It's me defending in suspense.
It's me suspended in a defenseless
test
Being tested by a ruthless examiner
That's represented best by my depres-...-sing thoughts.
I do not have writers block my writer just hates
the clock.
It will not let me sleep I guess I'll sleep when I'm dead
And sometimes death seems better than the migraine in my head.

Am I the only one I know, waging my wars behind my face and above my throat.
Shadows will scream that I'm alone.
But I know, we've made it this far... Kid.

Yeah, yeah, yeah

I am not as fine as I seem.
Pardon, me for yelling and telling you green gardens
Are not what's growing in my psyche, it's a different me
A difficult beast feasting on burnt down trees
.
Freeze frame. Please let me paint a mental picture portrait.
Something you won't forget, it's all about
my forehead
And how it is a door that holds back contents
That makes Pandora's box contents
look non-violent.
Behind my eyelids are islands of violence
My mind shipwrecked this is the only land my mind could find
I did not know it was such a violent island
Full of tidal waves, suicidal crazed lions.
They're trying to eat me, red blood running down their chin
And I know that I can fight, or I can let the lion win.
I begin to assemble what weapons I can find
'Cause sometimes to stay alive you gotta
kill your mind.

Am I the only one I know, waging my wars behind my face and above my throat.
Shadows will scream that I'm alone.
But I know, we've made it this far... Kid.

And I will say that we should take a day to break away
From all the pain our brain has made, the game is not played alone.
And I will say that we should take a moment and hold it
And keep it frozen
And know that life has
a hopeful undertone.

And I will say that we should take a day to break away
From all the pain our brain has made, the game is not played alone.
And I will say that we should take a moment and hold it
And keep it frozen
And know that life has
a hopeful undertone.

Am I the only one I know, waging my wars behind my face and above my throat.
Shadows will scream that I'm alone.
But I know, we've made it
this far... Kid.

Made it this far,
Made it this far

    The letters by his bed may be a reference to the days and months on his calendar, because earlier he talks about how "Sundays are my suicide days". This is probably addressing that, with depression, any sort of little trigger (from a gloomy day to a Sunday) can set off a chain reaction that reawakens the monsters of his mind.
