lyrics

Wake, take this pill and you'll feel better
No you'll never be just like the other kids
Wait, in a white walled doctors office
You won't always feel so toxic after this

But they don't know the half of it
The weight you carry in your sunken chest
Gawkers and onlookers will say
It'd be convenient if you weren't like this

So keep your chin up slugger in the morning you'll feel better
The hardest part is getting to sleep

Drink, anything to numb the feeling
Force a smile like everything is alright
Stand, on a ledge sixty-five feet above the ground
And think of taking your life
You can step back from the edge, you are stronger than this
I don't know you, but I know I've been there
Learn to live for yourself, and fuck everyone else
It's never easy, but tell me what is

No they don't know the half of it
The weight you carry in your sunken chest
Gawkers and onlookers will say
It'd be convenient if you weren't like this

It's a sad sick shame that they can profit off of sadness
At every corner pharmacy
And when the gunshot finally goes off no one ever seems to notice
The signs were always clear to see

So keep your chin up, slugger in the morning you'll feel better
The hardest part is getting to sleep
