"Heavydirtysoul" as written by and Tyler Joseph....
There's an infestation in my mind's imagination
I hope they choke on smoke cause I'm smoking them out the basement
This is not rap, this is not hip-hop
Just another attempt to make the voices stop
Rapping to prove nothing, just writing to say something
'Cause I wasn't the only one who wasn't rushing to say nothing
This doesn't mean I lost my dream
It's just right now I got a really crazy mind to clean

Gangsters don't cry
Therefore, therefore I'm
Mr. Misty-eye, therefore I'm

Can you save
Can you save my
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
Can you save
Can you save my
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
For me, for me, oh
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
For me, for me, oh
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?

No, I didn't understand the thing you said
If I didn't know better, I guess you’re all already dead
Mindless zombies walking around with a limp and a hunch
Saying stuff like, "You only live once"
You got one time to figure it out
One time to twist and one time to shout
One time to think and I say we start now
Sing with me if you know what I'm talking about

Gangsters don't cry
Therefore, therefore I'm
Mr. Misty-eye, therefore I'm

Can you save
Can you save my
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
Can you save
Can you save my
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
For me, for me, oh
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
For me, for me, oh
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?

Death inspires me like a dog inspires a rabbit
Death inspires me like a dog inspires a rabbit

Can you save
Can you save my
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
Can you save
Can you save my
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
For me, for me, oh
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
For me, for me, oh
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?

Can you save
Can you save my, save my
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?
Can you save
Can you save my, save my
Can you save my heavy dirty soul?

    Song MeaningSong's are Tyler's way to deal with his problems, and throughout the album, Blurryface, he tells us he might not be alive if he didn't do so.

    Heavydirtysoul is a melancholy song; very thoughtful and metaphoric. It reveals how he thinks how he "didn't lose his mind but he has a crazy mind to clean" (he isn't hopeless in this particular track and think he can be fixed) Ironically, songs on the album like "Goner" is the exact opposite, showing how the album is really the brain of Tyler's and how it thinks, but that's a whole another topic.

    A bigger purpose of the song is how people look up to him, similar to the infamous "gangsters" that led their people. The entire song compares himself to a gangster, or looked up figure in some people's lives (weather it has a good or bad correlation). Think about your role model, do they cry? Most likely, you think of them as a strong person, but the song's about how people look up to him (Tyler), but he's not a hero, he's a person who has feelings and expresses them. "Gangster's don't cry, therefore I'm Mr. Mistyeye", a play on the term "I just have an itch in my eye, I'm not crying" (or something in that regard).

    Like curiazadeh said above, "I hate to be the one to point out the most obvious lyric in the song, but "Death inspires me like a dog inspires a rabbit," means "Death scares me so much that it startles me into action." " Death is an adrenaline rush for him, and seems good in the moment that it is presented but when he's thinking, it's a scary thought.

    Because of all his crazy thoughts and emotions, he asks "can you save my heavydirty soul?" Or, purify my thoughts, in simpler terms.

    In a nutshell, Heavydirtysoul addresses how although he seems strong, he's emotional and has depressing thoughts in his mind that he wishes weren't there and want's to be saved.

    General CommentI want to add that this lyric "Just another attempt to make the voices stop" might be referencing the end of glowing eyes as it also say's "make them stop" refering to the voices inside his head. as both songs are about trying to stop the voices in his head. it kind of seems simple to me making the connections.
