Heavydirtysoul is the first song on the album Blurryface. It was recorded in Hollywood and is produced by Ricky Reed.

It was released as a single on December 9, 2016, presumably to celebrate the release of TOPxMM only 10 days later. A live version remixed by Twenty One Pilots and Mutemath appears on TOPxMM.

On February 3, 2017, the music video for Heavydirtysoul was released.

Lyrics

There's an infestation in my mind's imagination
I hope that they choke on smoke
'Cause I'm smokin' 'em out the basement
This is not rap, this is not hip-hop
Just another attempt to make the voices stop
Rappin' to prove nothin', just writing to say somethin'
'Cause I wasn't the only one who wasn't rushin' to say nothin'
This doesn't mean I lost my dream
It's just right now I got a really crazy mind to clean

Gangsters don't cry
Therefore, therefore I'm
Mr. Misty-eyed, therefore I'm

Can you save?
Can you save my?
Can you save my heavydirtysoul?

Can you save?
Can you save my?
Can you save my heavydirtysoul?

For me, for me
Can you save my heavydirtysoul?
For me, for me
Can you save my heavydirtysoul?

Nah, I didn't understand a thing you said
If I didn't know better I'd guess you're all already dead
Mindless zombies walkin' around with a limp and a hunch
Sayin' stuff like, "You only live once"
You've got one time to figure it out
One time to twist and one time to shout
One time to think and I say we start now
Sing it with me if you know what I'm talkin' about

Gangsters don't cry
Therefore, therefore I'm
Mr. Misty-eyed, therefore I'm

Can you save?
Can you save my?
Can you save my heavydirtysoul?

Can you save?
Can you save my?
Can you save my heavydirtysoul?

For me, for me
Can you save my heavydirtysoul?
For me, for me
Can you save my heavydirtysoul?

Death inspires me like a dog inspires a rabbit
Death inspires me like a dog inspires a rabbit

Can you save?
Can you save my?
Can you save my heavydirtysoul?

Can you save?
Can you save my?
Can you save my heavydirtysoul?

For me, for me
Can you save my heavydirtysoul?
For me, for me
Can you save my heavydirtysoul?

Can you save?
Can you save my?
Can you save my heavydirtysoul?

Can you save?
Can you save my?
Can you save my heavydirtysoul?
