Domingo en fuego
Translated: It means something like Sunday on Fire. I believe it's a religious reference. He (Tyler) feels like he's full of evil and can't stop doing wrong. Especially in that next verse where he says: I think I lost my halo.

Meaning
"Lane Boy" is a song about originality. The music industry is geared towards making the same sounds over and over, because they're safe; they'll make money. Twenty One Pilots is one of the few new bands that I've heard that have a extremely varied genre. Tyler, the lead singer, has a problem with this industry business. They want him to stay safe, with the same sounds and maybe he's slightly scared too. But, in the end they put out music that is all different. Some people want them to stay on the "highway" or in one "lane", but Tyler is saying that there is no lane to him. He's off the path in a whole new meaning. He doesn't want to produce what sounds like the same song over and over, but rather wants to try out new beats and crazy lyrics.

dying
You hear me screaming
Father
And I'm lying here
The Father, God, specializes in dying, because Jesus did die and he came back from the grave. Tyler feels like he's dying, probably spiritually, and is screaming out for help and guidance from God.

to run through the sand
As I hold the water
In the palm of my hand
Cuz it's all that I have
It's all that I need and
The waves of the water
Mean nothing to me
But I try my best
And all that I can to
Hold tightly onto
What's left in my hand
But no matter how
How tightly I will strain
The sand will slow me down
And the water will drain
I'm just being
Like Mike said above, I believe the sand are struggles, beasts that hurt and harm. The water is what he's fighting for, getting closer to God. He said[/i]"it's all that I have and all that I need". The [i]"waves of the water" are the worldly items and yes, distractions. And they mean nothing to him. But, Tyler also thinks that no matter how hard he strains to hold the water, the sand is going to be bigger and harder to pass through. He thinks the water will drain and then there will be nothing left.

Please use discretion when you’re messing with the message man
These lyrics aren’t for everyone
Only few understand
While I like what MythicSnow115 said, what I got out of it was something different. I thought he was talking about his other songs. Those were his messages. Not everyone understands why his songs are dark or talk about suicide. Only some people understand them because they are going through the same thing.

You don’t know my brain
The way you know my name
You don’t know my heart
The way you know my face
You don’t know what I’ve done
Sometimes people put on masks to hide what they're really feeling inside. Tyler is saying that you know his name or face, but not actually know how he's feeling. Based on some of his other songs, I think that maybe he's struggling with depression or something mentally.

wind
As it blows me back and fourth
Mindless, spineless, and pretend
Of course I'll be
Some things we love, aren't good for us. And, even if we don't love them, we're addicted to them. The wind is blowing him back and forth and I believe he feels helpless to stop it. The wind is his addiction or something that hurts him.

Regardless, all these songs I’m hearing are so heartless,
Don’t trust a perfect person and don’t trust a song that’s flawless,
Honest
I agree with the explanation above. All of twenty one pilots' songs are unique and very original. I think that's why most of us really like them. You shouldn't trust a perfect song because everybody has flaws. And also, most songs on the radio don't even have thought put into them. It's just another pointless love song or the same beat as the next.

that I'm alone.
But I know, we've made it
Tyler might be struggling with depression, but at the same time he's trying to find something to stay alive for. He's made it this far and I believe he's trying to connect with other people to encourage them and try to lift them up in their own problems.

He was a million miles from a million dollars
But you can never spend his wealth
He didn't have a million dollars or probably even a half million but he didn't care because that's not what he lived for. You could never spend his wealth because it wasn't worth anything to others, only to himself. What he cared about was God and other people so others can't spend happiness obviously.

It's not about the name we make
But the life we live
It's not about the labels or big names, but our actions. We can call ourselves Christians and still cuss and be mean people, but we prove who we really are through what we do.

It takes a soldier
Who knows his orders
To walk the walk I'm supposed to walk
It's hard to go against the tide or the world. They are so many against one so small, yourself. But, remember God is with you always even when you don't feel like it. It takes a soldier who has been trained to fight on the front lines or a courageous Christian to talk to others about Jesus Christ.

I learned the lines and talked the talk
He's saying that he went along with the crowd. He walked the walk or lived how everyone else did, not thinking about what God would want for him. Sometimes you get caught up in society and forget about what is truly right for yourself.

Meaning
Life isn't perfect; there is rough times and when it comes he's gonna be there for others to lean on. He will pick up the broken hearts and put them back together. He's gonna be the encouraging and shelter that protects them from harder times. God will find you those that need Him. He does not walk away because you are shattered, but actually this is the time where you could get the closest with Him. When you rely on His strength He won't let you down. He's your shoulder.

Meaning
He knows that he could never get through without his brothers there with him. He's offering his shoulder for them also. They aren't necessarily blood brothers, but people who he loves and loves him. He's letting himself protect them and guide them. When they are low he's there to shield them and take up their worries. They are his lighthouse, and he is theirs.

Meaning
When the world doesn't understand or accept the artist he goes to the person who will take him. When your depression gets too deep and you bleed just to know your alive, he's saying his life feels like a nightmare and needs to hurt them self so that it will overwhelm the mental pain. He's spilling everything so when he does get in a bad spot and he doesn't want the world to see him she'll know why he's acting the way he is.

Meaning
When you're a kid you don't think about what you're doing, you just do it. You throw a ball, no thinking about how fragile windows are. When you get older you start to see your actions affect you and others. Your voice is too loud is showing someon older wishing that he or she was still younger and could share in the fun without feeling responsibility weighing on their shoulders. The water is warm but it's sending me shivers, meaning maybe it looks cool but they have already grown up and knows that it won't have good consequences. There is a point in everyone's life where you grow up. Some are forced to take responsibility because others won't and that makes them tough. Others grow up but are still children on the inside because life gave them an easy deal of cards. Either way we all mature.

Meaning
The artist thinks "Virginia" is beautiful even with all of her flaws. He doesn't care that she doesn't own a dress or that she wears high heels when she exercises. He thinks it's awesome that she is unique and doesn't care what people think. She says she wants to be the queen but she likes the life she lives with all its quirks and everything else. You'd think most people want fame and fortune. That's what "Virginia" thought too but she realized her life is pretty cool how it is.

Meaning
If you let life go by and hold onto grudges then what are you really even living for? You're gonna die some day and that's inevitable so why not make it the best 100 years. A full life is only around 100 years and most people don't even make it that far. You are going to look back and be like why didn't I say something, or why didn't I just apologize. Don't live with regrets. Go for it. I know 100 years seems like a lot but it isn't. My brother died 2 years ago when he was only 7 months old. You never know when you'll pass on so love like it's your last day and make your life the greatest!

Meaning
Mr. Johnson is expressing his disappointment about a girl who doesn't have much feelings for him. He has put up with her friends and is waiting for her love in return. He wants a plot twist or something else than just flirting. He knows it's hard to wait for love but is always helping her thinking that will help the relationship keep progressing. He's always waiting on her and says if I was in your position I'd put down all my ammunition. Jack is saying if I were you I'd just give it a chance instead just keep tearing me down. He's kinda mad too probably that he's giving so much effort and she's doing nothing.

Meaning
Akon is apologizing for things he has done, hasn't done, will do, and things nobody else will take blame for. He had to be responsible when the people in charge wouldn't do their jobs. The first part is talking to his wife and saying sorry for the times he wasn't there for her and his son. The second part is to his mom. It's talking about when his dad divorced his mom and left her to take care of the kids. He's sorry that he had to turn into a thief and that he got taken away by the government which wasn't his fault. The third part is to an underage girl that got admitted to a club somehow. He should not be blamed and her dad, like Akon said, shouldn't have let her out that young. He's sorry for the embarrassment she felt and for everything else. Even though he's taking the credit he doesn't feel like he should have to do it, but he's doing it for his fans. This is pretty cool to me.
