Twenty One Pilots' Fans Think The 'Smithereens' Lyrics Are About Jenna Joseph

"For you / I would get beat to smithereens"
Happy TRENCH Day! Twenty One Pilots have FINALLY released their much-anticipated fifth studio album today (Oct 5th) and fans are devouring the album like it's their first meal in years.
Previously in an interview with Zane Lowe, Tyler Joseph revealed how anxiety and depression played a role in the themes of the record. "My music is me talking about it and is the window into it but I don't think it is healthy for me to give you the keys to that house" he said.
In the same interview, Tyler also spoke about his wife Jenna, saying that "she the best thing that I've accomplished". Well, it looks like that Jenna has inspired the track 'Smithereens' from the new record.
The lyrics talk about the lengths Tyler would go for her. "For you, I’d go / Step to a dude much bigger than me / For you, I know / I would get messed up, weigh 153 / For you / I would get beat to smithereens", while the refrain in the bridge repeats: "You know I had to do one on the record for her like this / You know I had to do one on the record for her".
We're not crying, you are.
Fans are IN BITS over the lyrics and honestly we don't blame them.

This songs has JENNA JENNA JENNA all written over it. “You know I had to do one on the record for you.” It’s the cutest, it’s lovely, it mirrors his unconditional love he’s got for his absolutely astonishing wife. 🌻 pic.twitter.com/25W7RO0QyV

Is about how much Tyler loves Jenna and is willing to fight for her no matter what happens and no mater how big they get he will always take the time to write songs about her, even if we think he’s a sell out❤️
