The Top Ten

1 Migraine

"Sometimes to stay alive you gotta kill your mind"

Migraine has the best lyrics... sometimes to stay alive you gotta kill your mind, "kid," thank god it's friday cause fridays will always be better than sundays cause sundays are my suicide days, I am not as fine as I seem! pardon... are just to name a few. love this song

I actually love rapping this song a lot because of the lyrics. And because I always have headaches. But mostly the lyrics. - AnonymousChick

I am extremely glad that this song is at #1. It is the best song ever lyric wise, and it is one of the few songs that I’ve cried while listening to. However, no song is perfect, so I do have some criticism. I really don’t like the fact that the metaphor is given away in the first verse. I mean, they specifically say it! On the other hand, I guess it’s a good thing that people can’t make up meanings, because it directly says what the song is about. - saturatedsunrise

2 Car Radio

A story that's just too relatable about music drowning out the painful thoughts.
'sometimes quiet is violent' - AnonymousChick

3 Guns for Hands

It's about sucide and depression.
'Obviously best for them to turn their guns into a fist.' - AnonymousChick

4 Holding On to You
5 Stressed Out

'my taste in music is your face'
'You fell asleep in my car I drove the whole time trying to avoid the holes so you'll sleep fine' - AnonymousChick

The Contenders

11 Kitchen Sink

Nobody sees what I think. Nobody dreams when they blink. Think things on the brink of blasphemy, I’m my own shrink. Think things are after me, my catastrophe. But I’m a kitchen sink. You don't know what that means. Because a kitchen sink to you is not a kitchen sink to me. Okay friend? Are you searching for purpose? Then write something, yeah it might be worthless. Then paint something then, it might be wordless. Pointless curses, nonsense verses. You'll see purpose start to surface. No one else is dealing with your demons, meaning maybe defeating them could be the beginning of your meaning, friend. - sadical

Although in the song, it says that the song won’t mean the same thing to everyone, but I do have a theory about it. You know the expression “everything but the kitchen sink? ” Well, I feel like the lyric “I’m a kitchen sink” is about being left out. If that’s the case, that’s an excellent metaphor, and also a good lyric! - saturatedsunrise

12 Lane Boy

Why 18? No 8, just #1. Lane Boy should be...#1. It's true, in the industry, it seems to me that singles on the radio are currency. Lane Boy (and all of TOP's other songs) are better than the singles on the radio.

13 Taxi Cab
14 House of Gold
15 Forest
16 Goner
17 The Judge
18 Cancer
19 Fairly Local
20 We Don't Believe What's on TV
