lyrics

Another line on the page I throw out.
Another sight on display; I throw up.
Anesthetized, I'm back here again. Swallow down.
What's left to find in this place? I go out.

And all I see, it can't be named.
Just what I see,
it has me believing that I am not here to stay

And that's okay.
Yeah, that's alright.

I saw my future today. I did "well".
Was it Wellbutrin or fame? I can't tell.
It's something new, and I'm desperate for change. Might as well.
I guess I'm used to this game of myself.

And all I hear, it calls my name.
Just what I hear,
it caused me to fear that the end is not far away

And that's okay.
Yeah, that's alright.

Another lie on the page I show off.
A new disguise for the day I wake up.
But who decides when nobody's offering? Ha. Ha. Ha.
I guess I'll try a new face I don't love.

And all I feel, it brings me shame.
Just what I feel,
it caused me to deal with my mind in dangerous ways

And that's okay.
Yeah, that's alright.

I filled the skies with your names and fell down.
Hospitalized for three days. I fucked up.
But in my eyes were friends dying everywhere, all my fault.
I guess I'll find, in this place, a new song.

And all I love, it don't exist.
So I guess that's one
to add to the list of the ways I'm misunderstood

And that's no good,
but I think I'll be alright.

For every time you tried to help.
You fucked it up but meant so well.
Every time you told yourself
"It gets good", no, "It gets better".

It seems you're cursed from the start.
You struggle just to play the part.
Death by a broken heart
waiting for it to get better.

And if you can't get used to this,
you'd better start to work through it.
You're chasing carrots on a stick
but I won't stop 'til it gets better.

And every time you stayed awake
for every little choice you made.
It's over now, accept your fate.
This is you now. This is you.

This is you.
This is you.
This is you.
This is you.
This is you.
This is you.
This is you.
This is you.
This is you.
This is you.
This is you.
This is you.
This is you.
This is you.
This is you.
