Understanding the Lyrics: Level of Concern

When you're happy, you hear the music; when you're sad, you understand the lyrics. - frank ocean

I’m back with another song that has been stuck in my head/speaking to me lately.

On any given day, this is me:

MyHusband and I have been married for nearly 11 years and I still ask him things like this. And this one:

Now, I know we cannot always rely on others for our mental or emotional security, but sometimes it’s nice to just have that reassurance.

Lyrics from Level of Concern by twenty one pilots
'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
Lyrics from Level of Concern by twenty one pilots
tell me we're alright, tell me we're okay

Level of Concern

twenty one pilots

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

Wonderin’, 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 me nervous
I don’t really care what they would say
I’m asking you to stay
My bunker underneath the surface

Wonderin’, 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, yeah

Tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay, yeah
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, yeah

‘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
And you could bring down my level of concern
Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay, yeah

Tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay, yeah
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, yeah

In a world, where you could just lie to me
And I’d be okay, we’ll be okay
(My level of concern) we’re gonna be okay
(Just need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay)
(I need you)

Movie Synopsis:
Long ago, in the fantasy world of Kumandra, humans and dragons lived together in harmony. But when sinister monsters known as the Druun threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, those same monsters have returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the last dragon in order to finally stop the Druun for good. However, along her journey, she’ll learn that it’ll take more than dragon magic to save the world–it’s going to take trust as well. (source – Rotten Tomatoes)

My Take:

This movie was great. The found family trope was clearly the focus of this film and it did not disappoint. Highlighting how everyone brings their own strengths to any relationship or project, every character was wonderfully complex and helped accomplish their mission.

I also truly loved that the one who ultimately competes the task is not the one who you may have thought it would be. #NOspoilers

We highly recommend this movie.

The Final Verdict

SK Movie Rating Scale

Me:            5 stars
MyHusband: 5 stars
MyChild: 5 stars

We hope you enjoy!
