Twenty One Pilots – Heathens lyrics

All my friends are heathens, take it slow,
Wait for them to ask you who you know. You knew you should have stayed (it’s blasphemy),
I tried to warn you just to stay away. You have trust issues, not to mention,
They say they can smell your intentions. Please, all my friends are heathens, take it slow (watch it),
Wait for them to ask you who you know. [Outro]
Why’d you come? (watch it,
Watch it)

[Chorus]
All my friends are heathens, take it slow,
Wait for them to ask you who you know. [Pre-Chorus]
You’ll never know the freakshow sitting next to you,
You’ll have some weird people sitting next to you. [Pre-Chorus]
You’ll never know the psychopath sitting next to you,
You’ll never know the murderer sitting next to you. Please don’t make any sudden moves,
You don’t know the half of the abuse. You’ll think, “How did I get here, sitting next to you?”
But after all I’ve said, please don’t forget. [Bridge]
All my friends are heathens, take it slow (watch it),
Wait for them to ask you who you know (watch it). Please don’t make any sudden moves,
You don’t know the half of the abuse. You’ll think, “How’d I get here, sitting next to you?”
But after all I’ve said, please don’t forget

[Chorus]
All my friends are heathens, take it slow,
Wait for them to ask you who you know. Please don’t make any sudden moves,
You don’t know the half of the abuse. [Verse 2]
We don’t deal with outsiders very well,
They say newcomers have a certain smell. Just because we check the guns at the door
Doesn’t mean our brains will change from hand grenades. Please don’t make any sudden moves,
You don’t know the half of the abuse. [Intro]
All my friends are heathens, take it slow,
Wait for them to ask you who you know. And now they’re outside ready to bust,
It looks like you might be one of us. [Verse 1]
Welcome to the room of people who have rooms of people
That they loved one day, docked away.
