Tear in My Heart

I chose this song because it was at the top of my head and because it’s another song that’s, like Blackbird, about a girl, but in this case, it’s about a girl who causes him pain, but the pain helps him feel alive. This is a song with a lot of repetition in it, especially emphasizing the “She’s the tear in my heart” bit. He might actually have a bit of a warped mind because when I feel most alive is when I am doing something exhilarating like go-kart racing or jumping off a 15-foot high rock into a lake.

She’s the tear in my heart
I’m alive
She’s the tear in my heart
I’m on fire
She’s the tear in my heart
Take me higher
Than I’ve ever been

The songs on the radio are okay
But my taste in music is your face
And it takes a song to come around
To show you how

She’s the tear in my heart
I’m alive
She’s the tear in my heart
I’m on fire
She’s the tear in my heart
Take me higher

The song is also a metaphor for the psychological pain their love creates. The song uses visuals of him getting his butt kicked to show this to you in the sense of physical pain. The song reaches it’s apex right around the part where she punches him in the mouth and he spits fruit juice everywhere. Then the song abruptly quiets down for the kiss scene. I like this song because it has a catchy tune and I like other songs by Twenty-One Pilots. It’s also really funny the way he criticizes his government about not using taxpayer money to fix potholes. If he’s talking about the U.S., it’s kinda true for some places.
