Oh, Ms Believer, my pretty sleeper
Your twisted mind is like snow on the road
Your shaking shoulders prove that it's colder
Inside your head
In the winter of dead

I will tell you I love you
But the muffs on your ears will cater your fears
My nose and feet are running as we start
To travel through snow
Together we go

We get colder
As we grow older
We will walk
So much slower

Oh, Ms Believer, my pretty weeper
Your twisted thoughts are like snow on the rooftops
Please, take my hand, we're in foreign land
As we travel through snow
Together we go

We get colder
As we grow older
We will walk
So much slower

    My InterpretationYour twisted mind is like snow on the road - her thoughts are dangerous, possibly life threatening
    Your shaking shoulders prove that it's colder/Inside your head/In the winter of dead - these say that she (possibly she is crying) thinks cold thoughts, or dark thoughts
    I will tell you I love you/But the muffs on your ears will cater your fears - Even when he tells her he loves her, she is so convinced that any compliments are lies and that no one could ever love her. The 'muffs' could possible be referring to low self esteem or depression
    The next lines are saying how he still doesn't give up on her
    We will walk/So much slower - to me, this is referring to making their way out of depression, saying it might take a long time, but they will support each other
    The next verse speaks about how its foreign to them both, but together they can do it

    My InterpretationIt is about love, probably romantic love but nor necessarily. The girl struggles with an internal world that is far worse than cold reality, but he is dedicated to helping her survive and convincing her she is loved.

    General CommentWow! And the light bulb shines! Thanks to my fellow commenters, I now have a better meaning to this song. (Misbeliever) gives the song so much more meaning, than what I thought. I never made the connection, but the rest of the lyrics fit perfectly.

    "Oh, Miss Believer, my pretty sleeper
    Your twisted mind is like snow on the road
    Your shaking shoulders prove that it's colder
    Inside your head
    In the winter of dead"

    -This is the picture of the unbeliever. Asleep, twisted thoughts and beliefs, without understanding, fear, cold (heart), death.

    (I will tell you I love you
    But the muffs on your ears will cater your fears
    My nose and feet are running as we start
    To travel through snow
    Together we go)

    -God, by his Holy spirit gives us opportunities galore to accept his love. To believe in his truth, but we are distracted by everything, like our car radios (down with them all!!!) :) We ignore his promptings to follow him because we would rather do things our way. We are selfish and sinful, but he offers life, for the wages of sin are death. Traveling through snow is hard, as is the journey of a believer, but the life of an unbeliever is no life at all.

    Anywayzzzzzz... Yesterday this song was just a pretty sounding one about some chick. And today it is new to me. The same, but better all around. I hope "Ruby" is metaphorical and will change too.

    General CommentI see this song as coping with uncertainty (in Tyler's case possibly religion) and misbelief. Sorting through doubt and questions with no answers is a slow and arduous process, and can feel like walking through thick snow. As you get older these fears and uncertainties don't go away, but rather increase in number. Hence, as we grow older, we get colder.

    General CommentI agree with the comments above but i have noticed one thing about the title: oh, ms. believer is a pun for oh, mis-believer so it just further shows that she doesnt believe him when he says he loves her.

    My Interpretationit think God is talking to MIS-believer as she doesn't believes in him and he is trying to call her back to him.

    "I will tell you i love you but the muffs on your ears would cater your fears"
    these lines perfectly explain my theory as God is telling her that he loves her but her 'muffs' which can represent the world or her sins are stopping him to do so and her fears are preventing her from coming back to God as well.

    "Please,take my hand,we're in foreign land/As we travel through snow/Together we go"
    this is also God requesting her to come with him.And as she is a misbeliever,it would be hard for her to come back to her religion which is why it says "As we travel through snow" as walking in snow is pretty difficult.

    also it says "pretty sleeper" and "pretty weeper" just to represent God's love and how God loves however his creation is.

    Lastly the twisted thoughts the person is getting can be blasphemy and doubt in God -the continuation of the comment made by me

    General CommentI discovered Twenty One Pilots while streaming music and started listening to all their albums. Usually during work, so I never actually learned song titles right away. When this song came on, I originally thought he was saying "misbeliever." So my thoughts on the song meaning are like what @ginnyboy posted on 05/03/2016. Not saying it can't be about a girl, BUT...from what I've read, apparently the first song he wrote about a girl is "Tear In My Heart", soooo...

    General CommentI like to think this song is a love song about a girl who believes in something, whether it is an aspiration to become or a fantasy world. Her thoughts are unique and dark, but beautiful in her own way. He sings about how much he loves her for the way she thinks rather than her appearance. He loves her unconditionally for who she is.

    My InterpretationI personally think that in this song he's talking about a girl her loves (maybe not like in a relationship, maybe just friendship) who he admires for believing. And although to most she's "miss believer" and she seems quite perfect because of it, he can tell how much she's hurting inside, for example when he says "your shaking shoulders prove that it's colder inside your head than the land of the dead.". But yet, even though she's struggling she still choses to have hope, and that to him is even more inspiring and he loves her for it. When he says "we travel through snow, together we go" he is referring to how he's going to stick by her side through the hard times because if they continue to stick it out, she believe they'll eventually reach the light at the end of the tunnel. However the chorus: "we get colder, as we grow older. We will walk so much slower" I believe refers to how as we grow up we lose sight of what we believe in often times and we become "colder". Also, the fact that they're walking so much slower as they grow up refers to that loss of faith and the doubt that they begin to have about there being a light at the end of the tunnel.
