Twenty One Pilots: Migraine Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Waging my wars behind my face and above my throat?
Shadows will scream that I'm alone.
I've got a migraine and my pain will range from up, down, and sideways,
Thank God it's Friday 'cause Fridays will always,

'Migraine' is about Tyler's depressing thoughts that are basically hurting his head or giving him a migraine. 'Sometimes death seems better than the migraine in my head' means he would rather die than have his depressing thoughts control his life. "Thank God it's Friday cause Fridays will always be better than Sundays, cause Sundays are my suicide days" means he is glad its Friday because he doesn't want to deal with his suicidal and depressing thoughts that usually happen on Sundays. This song is about mental illness, anxiety, and depression. "Sometimes to stay alive, you have to kill your mind" This part of the song describes how the mind can drive a person to choose whether or not to live, and sometimes the only way to stay alive is to kill your mind. For people with depression, "killing your mind" is basically an escape.

I think that this song is about a dude who has faced many obstacles while trying to reach his goal and often face a lot of depressions. Although he might have thought of suiciding, he still persisted to work even harder as he looked back to how far he has achieved. Idk that's my opinion and I really like this song tbh!

It's about needing someone there to help threw the struggles.

I think this song is about a dude that suffers depression and thinks about suicide often, as the song cuts off at the end, referring to that he has succumbed to suicide.

My opinion to what the meaning is, Is sending a message that Your mind is killing you. And your thoughts are drowning you and you can't escape. Only certain people will understand the deeper meening towards this song, As some people will find the song crazy because they do not know the meening behind the lyrics. I've been listening this song since it was released and It has been my favorite since.I find thet the meening is to send a message to all the people out there who is overthinking and getting depressing thoughts,That they should STOP THINKING.

To me this song is a reach to show how you can attack your mind: less an actual migraine, but more "waging your war behind your face, above your throat." Aka your brain. How your own thoughts can begin to change the way you see yourself.
