I have a hot thread going on my Facebook page about this but thought I’d just go ahead and throw a post up because…well…because.
Have you heard of the band Twenty One Pilots?
I am obsessed. Thought it was cool when I found out we used to go to church with the drummer. Of course, he was like 11 years old at the time, but still.
Their music. Their lyrics. The most christian lyrics I’ve ever heard. The artistry knows no bounds. I cry at almost every single song.
As somebody who has struggled the majority of my life with depressing thoughts. Thoughts no person should ever have. Thoughts that only the enemy could have put in my head with the intent of destroying me. These lyrics they sing are felt out. They are deep. They almost always point you to God. Nearly every single song.
One of my most favorites is Holding Onto You. My current favorite that had me crying while driving home the other day is Johnny Boy.
“I will carry all your names and I will carry all your shame”
That’s God singing to His children.
Dang, I’m crying even writing that.
I am so thankful that God put these lyrics in them to share with all of us. So much hate in this world and here you have two men singing to reach others who are where, I assume, they’ve been. You don’t sing with that much passion and with those kind of lyrics without knowing the pain and without knowing the hope there is to be had.
Well, this wasn’t a thought out post so I may write about them again later. I mean, I could write an entire post about each and every song.
Even Taco Bell Saga.
Ok, so not all their songs are pointing to God.
And for those who have never heard that one, you’re welcome 😉
It’s bedtime now, so till next time.
