Playing: March to the Sea - Twenty One Pilots

There's miles of land in front of us,
And we're dying with every step we take,
We're dying with every breath we make,
And all fall in line

A stranger's back is all I see,
He's only a few feet in front of me,
And all look left and right sometimes,
But all fall in line

No one looks up anymore,
'Cause you might get a raindrop in your eye,
And heaven forbid, they see you cry,
As we fall in line

And about this time of every year,
The Line will go to the ocean pier,
And walk right off into the sea,
Then we fall asleep

As we near the end of land,
And our ocean graves are just beyond the sand,
I ask myself the question, why
I fall in line

Then out of the corner of my eye,
I see a spaceship in the sky,
And hear a voice inside my head
Follow me instead

Follow me instead
Follow me

Then the wages of war will start
Inside my head with my counterpart
And the emotionless marchers will chant the phrase
This line's the only way

Then I start down the sand
My eyes are focused on the end of land
But again the voice inside my head
Says, follow me instead

Follow me instead
Follow me
Follow me instead
Follow me instead
Follow me instead
Follow me instead
Follow me instead

Take me up
Seal the door
I don't want to march here anymore
I realize that this line is dead
So I'll follow you instead

So then you put me back in my place
So I might start another day
And once again, I will be
In a march to the sea
