“My Blood” by twenty one pilots

This song takes the beat of a pop track, even though soulful. There is a lot of repetition in the lyrics, but it works quite well in the context of the song.

There seems to be little connection to the story of Clancy in this new song. We do not hear about the banditos, the city of Dema, or even Clancy in the track. However, all previous singles have been about helping someone get out of their dark spots and in that line of thought, “My Blood,” too, connects with the rest of the album. it is unclear about whom Tyler is singing this song. But whoever it is, Tyler is giving a strong reassurance that they don’t have to be alone. The song could be for his wife Jenna, a friend, Josh Dun, or even the fans. These lyrics are a continuous repetition pleading for ‘somebody’ to stay with Tyler. He calls this person/s “my blood” which makes us wonder if he is speaking about family. Parents, siblings, relatives, or even his own children could fall into this category. Literally speaking, even his wife would not be ‘his blood.’ But metaphorically speaking, pretty much anybody could be “his blood.” I recommend you watch the music video to get the full experience and full story on this song. Overall, this is really great song and you feel every vibe from it.
