The Twenty One Pilots band is an American musical duo from Columbus, Ohio. Initially a band, the group was formed in 2009 by lead vocalist Tyler Joseph along with Nick Thomas and Chris Salih, who both left in 2011. Since their departure, the line-up has consisted of Joseph and drummer Josh Dun. 

The lyrics by Twenty One Pilots delve into the complexities of personal struggle and external pressures, painting a vivid picture of a relentless rat race and the burden of carrying past mistakes and unresolved issues. Through imagery of a “rat race” and feeling like one is drowning “in logistics,” the song captures the overwhelming weight of societal expectations and the relentless pursuit of success.

Despite the desire to break free from this cycle and overcome challenges, there is a poignant acknowledgment of vulnerability and a longing for support and redemption. Themes of loneliness, self-doubt, and the yearning for connection are woven throughout the verses, creating a narrative that resonates with the universal human experience of striving for growth and self-improvement while grappling with internal and external obstacles.

Ultimately, the song’s chorus reflects a plea for assistance and understanding, as he seeks a lifeline to navigate the tumultuous waters of life, expressing regret for past shortcomings and a willingness to embrace change and move forward.

Backslide Lyrics by Twenty One Pilots

[Intro]
(I don’t wanna)

[Verse 1]
Rat race, place to place, adding weight
Tendencies on repeat, innit?
Benefit from a shoe with no lace
Take the seat with the crease in it
I don’t mind if it’s lonely
I don’t mind if it’s fair
I don’t care, you control me
Leading me anywhere

[Chorus]
I don’t wanna backslide to where I’ve started from
There’s no chance I will shake this again
‘Cause I feel the pull, water’s over my head
Strength enough for onе more time
Reach my hand abovе the tide
I’ll take anything you have
If you could throw me a line
I should’ve loved you better
Do you think that now’s the time
You should let go?
It’s over my head

[Verse 2]
Bad place, on a hundred-dollar bass
Kinda wishin’ that I never did “Saturday”
“Is that a stain? You should change
Are you doin’ good?
Did you solve all of your problems?”
Thanks for asking, in a way, but
Accidentally uncovered a new one yesterday
What happened to what I brushed under the rug?
I used to be the champion of a world you can’t see
Now I’m drowning in logistics

[Chorus]
I don’t wanna backslide to where I’ve started from
There’s no chance I will shake this again
‘Cause I feel the pull, water’s over my head
Strength enough for one more time
Reach my hand above the tide
I’ll take anything you have
If you could throw me a line
I should’ve loved you better
Do you think that now’s the time
You should let go?

[Bridge]
I don’t mind if it’s lonely (It’s over my head)
I don’t mind if it’s fair (You should let go)
I don’t care, you control me (It’s over my head)
Leading me anywhere

[Chorus]
I’ll take anything you have
If you could throw me a line
I should’ve loved you better
Do you think that now’s the time
You should let go? (I don’t mind if it’s lonely)
It’s over my head (I don’t mind if it’s fair)
You should let go
It’s over my head

[Outro]
I don’t wanna backslide
