Lane BoyBy Twenty One Pilots“Blurryface”, 2015They say, "Stay in your lane, boy, lane, boy"/But we go where we want to/They thinkthis thing is a highway, highway/But will they be alive tomorrow?/They think this thing is a highway/If it was our way, we'd have a tempo change every other time change/'Cause our mind's changed on what we think is good/I wasn't raised in the hood/But I know a thing or two about pain and darkness/If it wasn't for this music I don't know how I would have fought this/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/There's a few songs on this record that feel common/I'm in constant confrontation with what I want and what is poppin'/In the industry it seems to me that singles on the radio are currency/My creativity's only free when I'm playing shows/They say, "Stay in your lane, boy, lane, boy"/But we go where we want to/They think this thing is a highway, highway/But will they be alive tomorrow?/Theybe alive tomorrow?/I'm sorry if that question I asked last/Scared you a bit like a Hazmat, in a gas mask if you ask Zack/He's my brother, he likes when I rap fast/But let's backtrack/Back to this/Who would you live and die for on that list?/But the problem is, there's another list that exists/And no one really wants to think about this/Forget sanity, forget salary, forget vanity, my morality/If you get in between someone I love and me/You're gonna feel the heat of my cavalry/All these songs I'm hearing are so heartless/Don't trust a perfect person and don't trust a song that's flawless/They say, "Stay in your lane, boy, lane, boy"/But we go where we want to/They think this thing is a highway, highway/But will they be alive tomorrow?“Lane Boy” embodies the theme of disgust with the hypocrisy of the adult world.
