STORY OF SONG
This song has no chorus. It details the true story when Tyler Joseph was late for a class in college and forgot to lock his car door. When he returned he found that thieves had stolen his GPS, radio and CD’s. At the time, Joseph couldn’t afford to replace anything that was taken. In an interview with Rock Sound, he said: “When I get in the car my first reaction is to put the radio on and for a while I wasn’t able to do that and finding out that once I removed that piece of me I realized that sometimes music can act as a distraction and can get in the way of where your mind wants to go.”
