"Polarize" as written by and Tyler Joseph....
Help me polarize, help me polarize, help me down
Those stairs is where I'll be hiding all my problems
Help me polarize, help me polarize, help me out
My friends and I, we got a lot of problems

You know where I'm coming from
Though I am running to you
All our feelings deny, deny, denial, oh

I wanted to be a better brother, better son
Wanted to be a better adversary to the evil I have done
I have none to show to the one I love
But deny, deny, denial, oh

Help me polarize, help me polarize, help me down
Those stairs is where I'll be hiding all my problems
Help me polarize, help me polarize, help me out
My friends and I, we got a lot of problems

Polarize is taking your disguises
Separating 'em, splitting 'em up from wrong and right
It's deciding where to die and deciding where to fight
Deny, deny, denial

I wanted to be a better brother, better son
Wanted to be a better adversary to the evil I have done
I have none to show to the one I love
But deny, deny, denial, oh

Help me polarize, help me polarize, help me down
Those stairs is where I'll be hiding all my problems
Help me polarize, help me polarize, help me out
My friends and I, we got a lot of problems

We have problems
We have problems

Domingo en fuego
I think I lost my halo
I don't know where you are
You'll have to come and find me, find me
Domingo en fuego
I think I lost my halo
I don't know where you are
You'll have to come and find me, find me

We have problems
We have problems

Help me polarize, help me polarize, help me out
My friends and I have problems
Help me polarize, help me polarize, help me out
My friends and I have problems

Help me polarize, help me polarize, help me out
My friends and I have problems
Help me polarize, help me polarize, help me out
My friends and I have problems

We have problems
We have problems

I wanted to be a better brother, better son
I wanted to be a better brother, better son
I wanted to be a better brother, better son

    My InterpretationSo the song name itself Polarize usually can also be thought of as a polar opposite or something along that nature. He wants help polarizing to help change things from how they are. He wants to get away from the 'stairs' I understand but I feel I can't place an exact point on what he is meaning with it metaphorically. He states that he wishes he 'was a better brother, better son' and helping defeat the 'evil I have done'. To myself, I see it as these are examples of his past sins that he wants to either redeem or erase.

    Domingo en fuego translates to Sunday on Fire
    'I think I lost my halo' could be referring to something along religious lines, for instance the whole our mind and body being a spiritual battle ground where our should is fought for. And Sunday on fire sounds like the idea of the church in flames, which is pretty bad, added to the halo lyrics sounds like stuff is not great right now, thus why he wants to be polarized.

    My take

    My InterpretationI think the big picture meaning of this song is trying to figure out your own value system-what's important to you, what you think is right and wrong. It seems like he's asking God to help him figure it out, but it's hard cause he's falling away from God. He just wants to be a better person and turn away from his sin("want to be be a better adversary to the evil I have done.") The one he loves that he's referring to is God, I think. Also I think the "my friends and I have problems" is him trying to include his fans in it so they feel like they can relate to it since we're all acing the battle of finding our morality.

    Song MeaningI think he want's to help everyone by stopping being himself in a human form and become something else by polarizing into the earth. And to help his friends with his problems maybe? XD

    General CommentIn Migraine (Vessel), there is a line "Sunday's are my suicide days," and in this song, "Domingo en fuego" translates to: Sunday is on fire.

    My OpinionI kind of think this song is an apology (I wanted to be a better brother, better son). In the second verse, Tyler talks about what 'polarize' means to him. He says: "Polarize is taking your disguises, separating 'em, splitting 'em up from wrong and right, it's deciding where to die and deciding where to fight". Polarize is, too me, a song about trying to be a better person, fix your mistakes. Similar to Fairly Local where he discusses knowing the difference between evil and good, I guess. Also, I feel like this song is connected to Addict With A Pen. Bottom line... Moving on taking control of these problems, which could essentially for this album mean kicking Blurryface out.

    General CommentI think by polarize he means to hide, so no one really sees him and his problems, hi is using a disguise because although he wants to defeat his demons he is afraid and is avoiding it instead.
    Have you seen polarized windows? you can se the persons but they cant see you.
