What Just Happened? || Twenty One Pilots Giveaway

By 3:34:00 PM , , , , , , , ,

There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. This is why it says:
“When he ascended on high, he took many captives and gave gifts to his people.”
Ephesians 4:4-8

If you listen to Radio U then you have no doubt heard the Twenty One Pilots song “Guns For Hands” with its eclectic stylings and powerful message towards the youth (people) of today. After I heard their latest single “Holding On To You” I had no choice but to head over to iTunes and purchase their recent release “Vessel" a few days ago.

Upon listening to the entire compilation “what just happened” was the thought that bounced around in my noggin as it felt after the final track stopped someone had secretly syphoned some of my inner most kept thoughts and mumblings to God from the past 29 years I have been on this earth, penned them down in rhythmic lyrical form and laced it with some wonderful instrumental beats.

Mind = Blown

Of course you have read many writings about bands and songs that I find most enjoyable, but Twenty One Pilots are on a whole other level! So as much, I have listened to album more than I care to divulge and I refuse to pick a favorite or even compile a list of a few of my favorite tracks. It is impossible; they are all uniquely amazing, heartfelt, raw and masterful in their own way. Literally the only snippet I feel I cannot relate to is the fact I’ve never had my car radio stolen. O_o However that doesn't mean a thing in comparison to how I dropped my jaw when I heard on a prior track, Migraine, what day seems to be worse than the rest (for an unknown reason at that). So yeah - I feel it (and mean it when I say it for this song and the entire album), a lot.

In “Fake You Out” the lyrics beckons that many people go through the things he is talking about and that for me is what it so powerful about this cd. The evil one likes to play hacky sack with our brains, he likes to make us feel like we are alone – with no recourse, however that is so far from the truth it is laughable. Not only is God everywhere around [watching beside us and in us (Holy Spirit)], but there is also an entire world out there that is dealing with the same things that each of us are (and a host of people who have gone through it whose stories are written in the B-I-B-L-E)!

I could go through track by track and give a deep personal opinion, connection and mental recollection to how the lyrics apply to my life, but I would rather you take it from here and go on your own journey with Twenty One Pilots (whom I am thankful for doing what they do, honesty goes a long way). Below are just a few of the songs from the album, enter to win an iTunes copy (either for yourself or to share with a friend) and may each of you who read this, overcome all of the demons you are facing or may face in the future. There is but one hope for us all, cling to that hope and remember that you are never alone! 

P/S It looks like if you use Spotify (I don't), but you can get some commentary action by the band. Woot!
