  • Online uploads of the "Studio Version" [3]are usually given de facto titles like "Alternate Version" or "Alternative Version"; however, the file name titles it as "Air Catcher (Studio Version)".
  • The studio version was recorded after Twenty One Pilots and before Regional at Best.
  • It has also been erroneously stated that the track was never released by the band; however, in 2011, Twenty One Pilots uploaded "Air Catcher (Studio Version)" to their website for free download, amongst other tracks.[4]



Album version
[Verse 1]

I don't fall slow like I used to, I fall straight down

You've stolen my air catcher that kept me safe and sound

My parachutes would guide me safely to ground

But now my chord's not workin' and I see you staring me down


I won't fall in love with fallin'

I will try to avoid those eyes, oh

[Verse 2]

I think you would beat the moon in a pretty contest

And the moon just happened to be the very first thing that I missed

I was doing fine on my own and there wasn't much I lacked

But you've stolen my air catcher and I don't know if I want it back


I won't fall in love with fallin'

I will try to avoid those eyes

'Cause I'm not sure I want to give you

Tools that can destroy my heart


And I just don't say what you wanna hear

So I'll write my fears

And I don't believe in talkin' just to breathe

In fallin' selfishly


I won't fall in love with fallin'

I will try to avoid those eyes

But now I'm here to give you words as

Tools that can destroy my heart
