Twenty One Pilots' lead vocalist, Tyler Joseph, on the album's fourth single: "For us, music has always been about transparency, so for me 'Lane Boy' is that song on the record that you kind of break that fourth wall and you can look into what it's like to really be a normal person in our position."
The music video opens with Tyler dancing along a dark road with two men dressed in Hazmat suits. They eventually end up onstage with drummer Josh Dun while the crowd, including the Hazmat men, kneels before the duo. Tyler explained to Fuse TV during Lollapalooza 2015: "Throughout the video, I'm kind of obeying them [the men] by bending down and listening to them, and being almost choreographed with them. Once we finally get out in front of an audience, people who are like-minded, they kneel down to us. It's kind of a manifestation of that battle with seeing some success."
John Lennon's lead guitar work on Yoko Ono's "Walking On Thin Ice" proved to be his final creative act. It was upon their return home after completing laying down the track that Lennon was murdered by Mark David Chapman.
