twenty one pilots – We Don't Believe What's On TV lyrics

[Verse 1]
We don't believe what's on TV
Because it's what we want to see

And what we want we know we can't believe
We have all learned to kill our dreams

I need to know
That when I fail you'll still be here
Cause if you stick around, I'll sing you pretty sounds
And we'll make money selling your hair

I don't care what's in your hair
I just wanna know what's on your mind

I used to say I wanna die before I'm old
But because of you I might think twice

[Verse 2]
Alright, second verse
What if my dream does not happen?
Would I just change what I've told my friends?
Don't want to know who I would be
When I wake up from a dreamer's sleep


[Chorus] (x2)

    Song is about Josh, the drummer, the lyrics, "I don't care what's in your hair" and "cause if you stick round I'll sing you pretty sounds" prove this, because the first one is referring to Josh's hair, which is constantly being dyed different colors. Tyler wrote this song about Josh because they are best friends. You know this isn't a love song referring to Tyler's wife because he said tear in my heart is the only love song.
