Twenty One Pilots – Not Today lyrics

[Verse 1]
I don't know why
I just feel I'm better off staying in the same room I was born in
I look outside and see a whole world
Better off without me in it trying to transform it


[Hook]
You are out of my mind, oh
You aren't seeing my side, oh
You waste all of this time trying to get to me
But you are out of my mind

[Verse 2]
Listen, I know
This one's a contradiction because of how happy it sounds
But the lyrics are so down

It's okay though
Because it represents, wait, better yet it is
Who I feel I am right now

[Hook]

[Chorus]
Heard you say, "not today"
Tore the curtains down, windows open, now make a sound
Heard your voice, there's no choice
Tore the curtains down, windows open, now make a noise

[Bridge]
Don't you test me, no
Just because I play the piano
Doesn't mean I, I'm not willing to take you down
I’m sorry

I, I'm out of my mind, oh
I'm not seeing things right, oh
I waste all this time trying to run from you
But I, I'm out of my mind

[Chorus]

[Hook]

[Chorus]

[Outro]
Buh buh bah, buh buh bah
Bah bah bah bah bah, bah bah bah bah bah
Buh buh bah, buh buh bah
Bah bah bah bah bah, bah bah bah bah bah
Buh buh bah, not today
Bah bah bah bah bah, bah bah bah bah bah
Buh buh bah, buh buh bah
Bah bah bah bah bah, bah bah bah bah bah

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
