Twenty One Pilots – Trapdoor lyrics

He wakes up early today,
Throws on a mask that will alter his face
.
Nobody knows his real name,
But now he just uses one he saw on a grave
.

He pretends he's okay, but you should see.
In his bed, late at night he's petrified
.

Take me out, finish this waste of a life.

[Chorus]
Everyone gather around for a show.
Watch as this man disappears as we know.
Do me a favour and try to ignore,
As you watch him fall through a blatant trapdoor
.
[End Chorus]

He thinks that faith might be dead,
Nothing kills man faster than his own head.
He used to dream things at night,
But now he's just watching the backs of his eyes
.

He pretends he's okay, but you should see
Him in bed, late at night he's petrified
.

Take me out, finish this waste of a life.

[Chorus]

Take me out, finish this waste of a life.

Everyone gather around for a show,
Watch as this man disappears as we know.
Do me a favour and try to ignore,
As you watch him fall through a blatant trapdoor
...

'Cause nobody knows he's alive.

    The song talks about how depression can eat away at someones sanity. "Cause no body knows his life" is saying that he hides behind a smile and pretends he's ok, but he isn't. "He wakes up early today".
    Throws on a mask that will alter his face.
    No one knows his real name. " He puts on a mask (a smile) no one knows his real name (they don't know who he actually is, they don't know that he is dying inside).
    "take me out, finish this waste of a life " is saying that he wants to die, he thinks his life is a waste in the universe so he's saying kill me now no one will care.
    " Watch as this man disappears as we know " is saying that he is slowly getting more and more sadder and slowly getting further and further away from his friends and family.
    " Everyone gather around for a show.
    Watch as this man disappears as we know. " is saying that his friends and family are just watching him falling down the rabbit whole of depression. They can only watch because he won't let them help him.
    " Do me a favour and try to ignore as he fall through a blatant trapdoor" is saying that he feels that no one wants to help him, that everyone is just ignoring him. And he feels that no one can help him so he just tells them he's fine, but he's not.

    I think this song is really just about a man who never gets what he deserves and everyone ignores him and that he pretends that he is ok and fine but under his feelings he just wants help or death and the verse watch as this man dissapear as we know is saying that anyone could die at any moment and people try to ignore it.
