    What's my problem?
    Well, I want you to follow me down to the bottom,
    Underneath the insane asylum,
    Keep your wits about you while you got ‘em,
    ‘Cause your wits are first to go while you're problem-solving.
    And my problem?
    We glorify those even more when they..
    My opinion, our culture can treat a loss,
    Like it’s a win and right before we turn on them,
    We give them the highest of praise,
    And hang their banner from a ceiling,
    Communicating, further engraving,
    An earlier grave is an optional way.

    Neon gravestones try to call for my bones.

    What's my problem?
    Don't get it twisted.
    It's with the people we praise who may have assisted,
    I could use the streams and extra conversations,
    I could give up, and boost up my reputation,
    I could go out with a bang, they would know my name,
    They would host and post a celebration.
    My opinion will not be lenient,
    My opinion, it's real convenient,
    Our words are loud, but now I'm talking action,
    We don't get enough love? Well, they get a fraction.
    They say "How could he go if he's got everything?"
    I'll mourn for a kid, but won't cry for a king.

    Promise me this,
    If I lose to myself,
    You won’t mourn a day,
    And you'll move onto someone else.

    But they won’t get them. No they won’t get them.

    Don’t get me wrong, the rise in awareness,
    Is beating a stigma that no longer scares us,
    But for sake of discussion, in spirit of fairness,
    Could we give this some room for a new point of view?
    And could it be true that some could be tempted,
    To use this mistake as a form of aggression,
    A form of succession, a form of a weapon,
    Thinking “I’ll teach them,” well, I’m refusing the lesson,
    It won’t resonate in our minds.
    I’m not disrespecting what was left behind,
    Just pleading that it does not get glorified,
    Maybe we swap out what it is that we hold so high.
    Find your grandparents or someone of age,
    Pay some respects for the path that they paved,
    To life they were dedicated.
    Now that should be celebrated.

      Neon graves... Makes you think of scooby doo right? Suicide is real eventhoguh you hear about it and sometimes think it's not happening as much... Just a thought. If I could make lyrics I'd love to do music like you bro. Hope you're doing good. Brother to brother *nods*

              I found this guy recently named Clayton Jennings and he makes spoken word art.

              Today he released a video titled "Suicide." He said that a month ago he nearly took his own life but he was thinking about fans who said he saved them.

              Of course, my emotional self cried like a baby.

              It made me realize that we stay alive _for each other._

              Tyler tells us to stay alive for him in "Truce." But he thinks of us in his darkest moments, too. It's evident here as well as in "Pet Cheetah."

              Listening to Tyler perform "Holding On To You" on ukulele at 2 AM made me realize my purpose.

              I was thinking about that line--the one that shocked me the first time I heard it, even though I understood but I was afraid because of what people would say--and I thought, I understand this, but the rest of society doesn't. I wish someone could explain it to them.

              Then it hit me. That's _my_ job.

              I'm writing different pieces right now to adults I trust (unfortunately not my parents or family) and they include TØP stuff. I didn't plan it at first, but it's important now to what I need to say.

              I struggle to express myself and communicate, but in that struggle my writing has improved drastically and I create art and beautiful things.

              I didn't know when to say it but I'm saying it now. I'm writing to my pastor, his wife, and two teachers.

              We're at the bottom of this hole, we've been to So Far Gone, some of us are still there, some of us are fighting our way out, some are helping others as we help ourselves, some are pulling people out of the holes that crawled out of, some of us are making it through, some are just surviving, some of us are just clinging to the end of a rope, some of us are slipping and losing the last piece we had, some of us have hurt ourselves, some of us have thought about taking our own lives, some or us have attempted, we are in Dema and Trench and what we find after that, we are creatures of emotion, the Failed Perimeter Escapes and The Few The Proud and The Emotional, we wage our wars behind our faces and above our throats, and we are the Skeleton Clique.

              It's time to tell our story to the world. Starting with my small corner of it. I will tell the story. We can fix this.

              We must make the difference. I know what my part is.

              Tell me who you are, I will tell the world.

                        Tyler is talking about how if you kill yourself everyone will know about you and all that shit, it's glorifying suicide and this song is saying no to the Neon gravrstones (Gravestones that are neon are more noticeable) That are calling for his bones. (Death) but he's saying that they won't get his bones.

                              "Don't get me wrong, the rise in awareness is beating a Stigma that no longer scares us, But for sake of Discussion and spirit of fairness, could we give this some room for a new point of view? and, Could it be true that some could be tempted to use this mistake as a form of aggression, a form of a succession, a form of a weapon thinking "I'll teach them, well i'm refusing the lesson, it won't resonate in our minds.

Find your grandparents or someone of age, and pay some respect for the path that they paved to life they were dedicated, now THAT should be Celebrated."

                              Tyler has a deep passion for music and I hope that all of you find a passion that suits you and let your heart guide you to where you need to be. Not just where you want to be. Ask God to give you all a passion, and if you have never Heard of Jesus, I encourage you to read a Bible and just say this simple thing: "Dear Lord, I accept you as my Lord and savior through all my heart soul, strength and mind and I have faith that you will lead me to where I need to be, and when the time comes, you keep my soul for all eternity." ask God to forgive you from all of your sins and I promise your life will change.

                                          This song makes me think about a lot. as well as other songs from the album trench, it's really sad. Thanks for talking about it. You helped me so many times, and this song helped me once again, thanks for that ||-//.

                                            3:26 It is true. I've been there myself. In fact, I feel like this verse is describing how I felt a couple years ago. I wish I had this song back then so I could use it to remind myself that this is not the answer. Either way, despite the fact that I still have my rough days here and there, I'm glad that I'm still here and have this song now. It genuinely helps me so much.

                                            Suicide is never the answer. Stay alive ||-//

In 4 days it’s gonna be a months ever since he left this earth. When listening to it I think of a soul leaving the body and going somewhere beautiful where they will never feel pain. I hope everyone stays alive because y’all are worth it. If your struggling talk to someone your never alone. Remember someone will care.
