Granted, the album sometimes sounds flat and underproduced or unfinished in many ways, but what we have here is an album that was foundational for their future success in Vessels and Blurryface. Although this album is rare, it still manages to be a monument of the band’s newly found sound, important to the band’s songwriting to this day. “You see rain” may mean that Tyler believes Nick and Chris left because they saw storms, or uncertainty in the future, they believed that the band would not be successful.
In the next verse, by saying “we are now just setting sail on the seas of what we fear” Tyler is saying that, though the world may be a horrible place, they will stay afloat on the water. Tyler once again explains his understanding of what the character is going through in the pre-chorus. In the chorus Tyler says to the character, “I’ll take you on a ride” similar to to song Ride, the ride may be a metaphor for living, as long as you are driving you are breathing but during the fall you are dying.

He is able to lay down thoughts musically in terms of chord progression, come up with a melody and then fit the lyrics into that song. Their music inspires song lyrics depending on what is being imparted most of the time. However, Joseph also likes to write poetry so sometimes he musically creates a song and then fits the poetry. Dun’s energetic drumming lays down a stable, equally prominent rhythm for Joseph as he shifts between the expressive lyrics of his verses and an almost melodic style of rapping during many of their songs. On August 8, 2013, Twenty One Pilots performed “House of Gold” on Conan in their late night debut.
