LYRICS
I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire
Exhale desire
I know it's dire
My time today

I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
'Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence

Sometimes quiet is violent
I find it hard to hide it
My pride is no longer inside
It's on my sleeve
My skin will scream
Reminding me of
Who I killed inside my dream
I hate this car that I'm driving
There's no hiding for me
I'm forced to deal with what I feel
There is no distraction to mask what is real
I could pull the steering wheel

I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
'Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence

I ponder of something terrifying
'Cause this time there's no sound to hide behind
I find over the course of our human existence
One thing consists of consistence
And it's that we're all battling fear
Oh dear, I don't know if we know why we're here
Oh my,
Too deep
Please stop thinking
I liked it better when my car had sound

There are things we can do
But from the things that work there are only two
And from the two that we choose to do
Peace will win
And fear will lose
There's faith and there's sleep
We need to pick one please because
Faith is to be awake
And to be awake is for us to think
And for us to think is to be alive
And I will try with every rhyme
To come across like I am dying
To let you know you need to try to think

I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
'Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence

I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire
Exhale desire
I know it's dire
My time today

I have these thoughts
So often I ought
To replace that slot
With what I once bought
'Cause somebody stole
My car radio
And now I just sit in silence

Music video

The music video was uploaded to YouTube on April 19, 2013 and was directed by Mark C. Eshleman of Reel Bear Media.[3][4] It was shot at a concert. Tyler Joseph sits in a bathroom singing the song, he then shaves off all of his hair (a major reference to angst), puts on a ski mask, and heads out to the stage where Dun is seen playing drums. Joseph walks into the crowd that is standing still, and once Joseph jumps the crowd jumps with him. Joseph surfs the crowd and performs the rest of the song on stage with Dun. As the song ends, Joseph is by himself on the stage and the crowd is gone. He takes off his mask, revealing his face once again (as well as his full head of hair, as if it was never shaven). Joseph then sings the final lyrics to the song, in which he falls backwards off the stage and the screen goes to black, ending the video.

Live performances

On April 13, Twenty One Pilots performed "Car Radio" at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.[5] On April 28, the band performed "Car Radio" on Late Night with Seth Meyers.[6]
