House of Gold by Twenty One Pilots

Chorus:
    C                    F
She asked me, "Son, when I grow old,
     Am           G
Will you buy me a house of gold?
    C                F
And when your father turns to stone,
     C        G       C
Will you take care of me?"
 
Chorus:
    C                    F
She asked me, "Son, when I grow old,
     Am           G
Will you buy me a house of gold?
    C                F
And when your father turns to stone,
     C        G       C
Will you take care of me?"
 
Bridge:
F      A7
I will make you
Dm       Bbm            F
Queen of everything you see
                    C
I'll put you on the map
                 F            C
I'll cure you of disease
 
Verse:
      C             F
Let's say we up and left this town
     Am               G
And turned our future upside-down
      C                 F
We'll make pretend that you and me
      C     G     C
Lived ever after, happily
 
Chorus:
    C                    F
She asked me, "Son, when I grow old,
     Am           G
Will you buy me a house of gold?
    C                F
And when your father turns to stone,
     C        G       C
Will you take care of me?"
 
Bridge:
F      A7
I will make you
Dm       Bbm            F
Queen of everything you see
                    C
I'll put you on the map
                 F            C
I'll cure you of disease
 
Verse:
    C                  F
And since we know that dreams are dead
    Am                  G
And life turns plans up on their head
C              F
I will plan to be a bum
   C      G       C
So I just might become someone
 
Chorus:
    C                    F
She asked me, "Son, when I grow old,
     Am           G
Will you buy me a house of gold?
    C                F
And when your father turns to stone,
     C        G       C
Will you take care of me?"
 
Bridge:
F      A7
I will make you
Dm       Bbm            F
Queen of everything you see
                    C
I'll put you on the map
                 F
I'll cure you of disease

    Are these song lyrics “highly original” or simply weird?

    • Hmm.. perhaps both, or neither. I’d say they’re more archetypical than original (Oedipal anyway)… and as for weird, nothing nearly so weird as the music video they made for this song. The song we love because it is catchy, fun and super beautiful. The BAND I love because they are so very innovative, interesting, different and compelling. In any case we’ll have to sing it for you asap! ❤
