twenty one pilots Backslide Lyrics

I don’t wanna

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

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?
It’s over my head

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

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?

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

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
You should let go
It’s over my head

I don’t wanna backslide
