"Save" as written by and Brent Allen Jimmy Gregerson....
The hands come from the ground
The hands come from the ground
Don't fear life
We came and saw
This has no meaning
I touch the sky
As it's burning

This bottles half way empty
Cause your glass is half way full
Can you please go without me
I swear that everything's alright
(It's not my money he owes)
And you say
The way we go
It's just as terrible
I can't turn around
Beware, before I allow them running away
Can you run

O whoa o, o whoa o, o wha-ah-oh-o-ah-o

Can't stop while the rhythm is going
Just say the first words that come along to your head
One touch and it's already over
I'm not ready, I'm barley sober
I just can't forget you
I'd do anything to get you
I don't want to get you
I just want to forget you

We can't go back
(And we can't go back)
Take a deep breath
And go for her
And two weeks have past
(I've haven't seen you since)
In spreaded letters
Just forget her

One thing remains
Save the cheerleader
Save the world!

    General CommentI have to say the first time I heard this song I cried. The lyrics are more real to me than most you would find about someone bearing heart to Jesus. I guess its easy for someone to miss the name in the song, but the moment I heard it, I realized that all of us in this world are so tightly connected and don't even know it. maybe it sounds silly, but that's the way it was and is. Its all about one man and how easy it is to become a slave to ourselves instead of a follower of the one who matters most.

    General CommentThis isn't a twenty one pilots song. Tyler wrote it, yes, but not for his band.

    Song MeaningDefinitely a powerful song. This is probably the one most obviously related to God.
    "Head tilted down, knees on the ground, and I will ask, "Please, save me!" Is someone praying, asking to be saved by God. "I deserve for you to turn away, I was ashamed to speak your name" is, I believe, praying for forgiveness in being apart from God and realizing their fault and feeling horrible about it. "I can't believe that all you see Is that you have covered me gracefully" is disbelief that God clans Jesus can be so forgiving and caring, even for people who feel that they don't deserve it. The lyrics are pretty straightforward, but the way Tyler delivers them is absolutely heart wrenching.
