Twenty One Pilots - Doubt

[Verse 1]
Scared of my own image
Scared of my own immaturity
Scared of my own ceiling
Scared I'll die of uncertainty
Fear might be the death of me
Fear leads to anxiety
Don’t know what’s inside of me

[Chorus 1]
Don't forget ab-b-b-b-bout me
Don't forget ab-b-b-b-bout me
Even when I doubt you
I'm no good without you, no, no

[Verse 2]
Temperature is dropping
Temperature is dropping
I'm not sure if I can
See this ever stopping
Shaking hands with the dark parts of my thoughts
You are all that I’ve got

[Chorus 2]
Don't forget ab-b-b-b-bout me
Don't forget ab-b-b-b-bout me
Even when I doubt you
I'm no good without you, no, no, no, no, no

[Bridge]
Gnawing on the bishops
Claw away at the system
Repeating simple phrases
Someone holy insisted
Want the mark he's made on my skin
To mean something to me again
Hope you haven't left without me
Hope you haven't left without me, please

[Chorus 1]
[Chorus 2]

[Outro]
Hey! Hey!
Don't forget about me, no
Hey! Hey!
Don't forget about me, no
Hey! Hey!
Don't forget about me, no
Hey! Hey!
Don't forget about me, no

"Doubt" is the eighth song on twenty one pilots' fourth album, "Blurryface". It echoes religious aspects seen most prominently in their earlier works. There are two possible interpretations that can be applied to this song’s lyrics. The first is that the song captures what it feels like to be falling away from God. Considering Tyler comes from a religious background, it makes sense that he communicates a feeling of “I doubt you, but I don’t want to” towards God, and he doesn’t want God to leave him. He hates the fact that he keeps “shaking hands with the dark parts” of his thoughts, giving in to doubts and insecurities, and he doesn’t know if it will ever end, something to which many religious people can relate. The other, more sinister explanation could be that Tyler has already fallen away from God completely, and is running toward Blurryface instead, for reasons explored in “The Judge.” It could be argued that Tyler no longer feels connected to God in any tangible way, due to the flawed modern-day religious system described in the bridge, and instead has decided to plead with Blurryface for forgiveness, asking him not to “forget about” him, so that Blurryface will grant him artistic inspiration and success.
