(Version #1)
Twenty One Pilots
[Intro]
C D Em B
 
C D
 
[Bridge]
Em x8
 
                        Em x2
Welcome back to Trench!
                        Em x2
Welcome back to Trench!
 
 
C       D
   I created this world
Em     B
   To feel some control
C       D
   Destroy it if I want
Em      B          C  D    Em  B
   So I'll sing Sahlo    Folina
      C  D    Em  B
   Sahlo    Folina
 
 
[Verse 1]
(Em Em Em D) x2
 
             Em
Earned my stripes, three hundred tracks in my Adidas track jacket
               D
Bless your ear holes while you react, acting
Em                                        D
Gobsmacked, don't hesitate to maybe overcompensate
            Em
I feel like I was just here, same twitchin' in my eyes
                        D                             Em
Don't sleep on a boy who can fall asleep twice in the same night
                                D
And won't hesitate to maybe overcompensate
 
 
[Chorus]
 
       C     D      Em        B
I said I fly by the dangerous bend symbol (Wait, what? Wait, what?)
C          D           Em        B
Mm, don't hesitate to maybe overcompensate
         C      D         Em         B
And then by the time I catch in my peripheral (Wait, what? Wait, what?)
C          D          Em         B
Mm, don't hesitate to maybe overcompensate
 
 
[Verse 2]
 
           Em
Where am I from? I was born right here, just now
                    D
Originated right in front of your eyes
                 Em
If you can't see, I am Clancy, prodigal son
                                   D
Done running, come up with Josh Dun, wanted dead or alive
           Em
So now you pick who you serve, you bow to the masses
                           D
Get kicked to the curb for passin' the classes
     Em
Half empty, half full, save half of your taxes
              D
Then overtake your former self
 
 
[Chorus]
 
C     D      Em        B
I fly by the dangerous bend symbol (Wait, what? Wait, what?)
C          D           Em        B
Mm, don't hesitate to maybe overcompensate
         C      D         Em         B
And then by the time I catch in my peripheral (Wait, what? Wait, what?)
C          D          Em         B
Mm, don't hesitate to maybe overcompensate
 
 
[Bridge]
 
Em
Days feel like a perfect length
                      Em
I don't need them any longer, but for goodness sake
´                 Em
Do the years seem way too short for my soul, corazón
Em                   D
Way too short for my soul, corazón
    Em
The days feel like a perfect length
                      Em                       D
I don't need them any longer, but for goodness sake
                  Em
Do the years seem way too short for my soul, corazón
Em                   D
Way too short for my soul, corazón
 
 
[Refrain]
 
             Em
Earned my stripes, three hundred tracks in my Adidas track jacket
               D
Bless your ear holes while you react, acting
Em                                        D
Gobsmacked, don't hesitate to maybe overcompensate
 
 
[Chorus]
 
       C     D      Em        B
I said I fly by the dangerous bend symbol (Wait, what? Wait, what?)
C          D           Em        B
Mm, don't hesitate to maybe overcompensate
         C      D         Em         B
And then by the time I catch in my peripheral (Wait, what? Wait, what?)
C          D          Em
Mm, don't hesitate to maybe overcompensate

[Bridge]

Chords: Em (played x8)
Play Em twice for "Welcome back to Trench!".
Keep a constant level of strumming.

This will accent the beat by providing a mixed combination of down and up strums.
Play Em with a big down stroke and then add the upstrokes for rhythm.

Strumming Pattern: Down-up-down-up.
Emphasize the first beat of each bar.
Light on the upstrokes for a smooth feel.

Now make sure you stick to the strumming.
Make sure every chord change is clear.

[Bridge]

Chords: Em, D (repeated 8 times for Em, 1 time for D)
Make the strumming regular and steady.
Create dynamics and intensity with your strums by varying the intensity of your strums.

Keep a steady rhythm, with a consistent strum throughout.

[General Tips]

Tuning: Standard tuning (E A D G B e).

Practice this slowly to play legato at first and then up to tempo.

[Common Mistakes]

Hastened transitions: Work on changing chords slowly and steadily.
Inconsistent strumming: Keep a steady pulse.
