twenty one pilots – Nico And The Niners lyrics

[Hook]
East is up, I'm fearless when I hear this on the low
East is up, I'm careless when I wear my rebel clothes
East is up, when Bishops come together they will know that
Dema don't control us, dema don't control
East is up

[Verse 1]
They want to make you forget
They want to make you forget

Save your razorblades now, not yet
Save your razorblades now, not yet


[Chorus]
I'm heavy, my jumpsuit is on steady
I'm lighter when I'm lower, I'm higher when I'm heavy, oh
I'm so high, my jumpsuit takes me so high
I'm flying from a fire, from Nico and the Niners, oh

[Hook]
East is up, I'm fearless when I hear this on the low
East is up, I'm careless when I wear my rebel clothes
East is up, when Bishops come together they will know that
Dema don't control us, dema don't control

[Chorus]
I'm heavy, my jumpsuit is on steady
I'm lighter when I'm lower, I'm higher when I'm heavy, oh
I'm so high, my jumpsuit takes me so high
I'm flying from a fire, from Nico and the Niners, oh

[Bridge]
I'm heavy, jumpsuit is on steady
Lighter when I'm lower, higher when I'm heavy, oh
I'm so high, I'm so high
So high, I'm so high
Fire, Nico and the Niners

[Verse 2]
What I say when I want to be enough
What a beautiful day for making a break for it
We'll find a way to pay for it
Maybe from all the money we made razorblade stores
Rent a race horse and force a sponsor
And start a concert, a complete diversion
Start a mob and you can be quite certain
We'll win but not everyone will get out
No, no
We'll win but not everyone will get out
No, no
We'll win but not everyone will get out


[Hook]
East is up, I'm fearless when I hear this on the low
East is up, I'm careless when I wear my rebel clothes
East is up, when Bishops come together they will know that
Dema don't control us, dema don't control
East is up

[Outro]
I'm so high, so high
Fire, Nico and the Niners
I'm so high, so high
Fire, Nico and the Niners

    This song is about a dystopian society called Dema where no happiness or bright colors are aloud in. Everything is dark and grey, the only colors in Dema are the robes that the 9 Bishops wear (the robes are dark red) also known as 'the niners'. The 9 bishops are Nico, Andre, Lisben, Keons, Reisdro, Sacarver, Mills, Vetomo, and Listo. The bishops are tyrants (meaning evil leaders) but Nico is the worst one, the Bishops are the ones that don't let happiness and color enter Dema.

    There is a large group of rebels known as the Banditos who wear jumpsuits with bright yellow on them to scare the Bishops. They all put there jumpsuits on every time they try to make an escape but they seem to always fail. The saying 'East Is Up' is how a Bandito (rebel) greets another Bandito.
