Level of Concern - twenty one pilots

The Experience: Would you be my little quarantine... Do you want to keep growing closer?
The Vibe: Stress. Hope.
The Topic: Support.
The Value: Intimacy.
The Tension: Need you (I'm willing to go deeper and grow closer) VS. Tell me (But you have the power to say yes or no).

Music video: Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun mail Level of Concern back and forth and back and forth during quarantine. But it doesn't gel until they get help,  Josh from his fiancée Debby Ryan, and Tyler from his wife Jenna and daughter Rosie. The video ends as you discover they live next door to each other.

The Meaning of Level of Concern: Who would you pick to join you in a doomsday bunker? Who would you ask to quarantine with you? That now all too real question is twenty one pilots' springboard for a song about friendship and love. Love can't grow unless you both invite each other further into your lives. It either freezes into something static, and dies as you hit the roof of your care for each other - is this the way it ends - or it grows deeper. It can't stay the same. Doubt or hardship - my level of concern - can only be healed by more love. That's why twenty one pilots invites their lover closer: would you be my little quarantine? 

Ask yourself: Are you always willing to invite them deeper into your life and heart?

LYRICS:


(Need you, tell me)
(Need you, tell me)

Panic on the brain, world has gone insane
Things are starting to get heavy
I can't help but think I haven't felt this way
Since I asked you to go steady

Wondering
Would you be, my little quarantine?
Or is this the way it ends?

'Cause I told you, my level of concern
But you walked by like you never heard
And you could bring down my, level of concern
Just need you to tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay

Panic on the brain, Michael's gone insane
Julie starts to make you nervous
I don't really care what they would say
I'm asking you to stay
In my bunker underneath the surface

Wondering
Would you be, my little quarantine?
Or is this the way it ends?

'Cause I told you, my level of concern
But you walked by like you never heard
And you could bring down my, level of concern
Just need you to tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay

Tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay
Tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay
Bring down my, level of concern
Just need you to tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay

'Cause I told you, my level of concern
But you walked by like you never heard
You could bring down my, level of concern
Just need you to tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay

I need you to tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay
Need you to tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay
I need you to tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay
Need you to tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay

Need you now
I need you now

'Cause I told you, my level of concern
But you walked by like you never heard
You could bring down my, level of concern
Just need you to tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay

Tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay
Tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay
You could bring down my, level of concern
Just need you to tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay

In a world, where you could just lie to me
And I'd be okay
We'll be okay
We're gonna be okay

(My level of concern)
(Just need you to tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay)
I need you

(Need you, tell me)
(Need you, tell me)
