Hey, I hear the voice of a preacher from the back room
Calling my name and I follow just to find you
I trace the faith to a broken down television, and put on the weather
And I’ve trained myself to give up on the past ’cause
I froze in time between hearses and caskets
Lost control when I panicked at the acid test
I wanna get better

While my friends were getting high and chasing girls down parkway lines
I was losing my mind because the love, the love, the love, the love, the love
That I gave wasted on a nice face
In a blaze of fear I put a helmet on a helmet
Counting seconds through the night and got carried away

So now I’m standing on the overpass screaming at the cars
“Hey, I wanna get better!”

I didn’t know I was lonely ’til I saw your face
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better
I didn’t know I was broken ’til I wanted to change
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better

I go up to my room and there’s girls on the ceiling
Cut out their pictures and I chase that feeling
Of an eighteen year old who didn’t know what loss was
Now I’m a stranger
And I miss the days of a life still permanent
Mourn the years before I got carried away

So now I’m staring at the interstate screaming at myself
“Hey, I wanna get better!”

I didn’t know I was lonely ’til I saw your face
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better
I didn’t know I was broken ’til i wanted to change
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better

‘Cause I’m sleeping in the back of a taxi
I’m screaming from my bedroom window
Even if it’s gonna kill me

Woke up this morning early before my family
From this dream where she was trying to show me
How a life can move from the darkness
She said to get better
So I put a bullet where I shoulda put a helmet
And I crash my car ’cause I wanna get carried away

That’s why I’m standing on the overpass screaming at myself
“Hey, I wanna get better!”

I didn’t know I was lonely ’til I saw your face
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better
I didn’t know I was broken ’til I wanted to change
I wanna get better, better, better, better
I wanna get better

I threw my phone out of the window tonight
So you couldn’t go and change my mind
What doesn’t kill you can drag you for miles
Til there’s nothing left to recognize

Meet me out at the end of my rope
Won’t you meet me at the end of my rope?

Every song was an anthem that the radio played for us
Every word was poetry rolling off our tongues
We were blooming like flowers, we were bending toward the sun
Now all that’s left of you and me is playlists and apologies
Oh, apologies
Oh

We burned for years; we never could get enough
We had an epic movie trailer love
How could I slip so easy out of your mind?
From your trophy to your alibi

Meet me out at the end of my rope
Won’t you meet me at the end of my rope?

Every song was an anthem that the radio played for us
Every word was poetry rolling off our tongues
We were blooming like flowers, we were bending toward the sun
Now all that’s left of you and me: playlists and apologies
Oh, apologies
Oh

I’m not thinking clear; get myself away from here
Broken hearts and souvenirs
I’m not thinking clear; I’m a mess to you, my dear
Broken hearts, souvenirs
My God, what a way to go

Every song was an anthem that the radio played for us
Every word was poetry rolling off our tongues
We were blooming like flowers, we were bending toward the sun
Now all that’s left of you and me: playlists and apologies
Oh, apologies
Oh

fallout

Empty room, I’m empty too
Everything reminds me of you
So many things I shouldn’t have missed
The more that I push and the more you resist
It’s easy to say its for the best
When you want more while you leave me with less
I know you’re fine but what do I do?
I know you’re fine but what do I do?

I’m awake and trying
While you’re sleeping like a babe beside him
I’m on the ledge while you’re so
Goddamn polite and composed
And I know you see me
And you’re making it look so easy
What comes and goes I’d go with out
I know you’re fine but what if I
(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout)
Fallout, through the fallout
(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout)
You’re the fallout

Well now there’s him and now there’s me
The secrets you give and the secrets you keep
And nevertheless it’s never you let
It’s more that I gave and the less that I get
Don’t tell me to fight, to fight for you
After this long, I shouldn’t have to
I know you’re fine but what do I do?
I know you’re fine but what do I do?

I’m awake and trying
While you’re sleeping like a babe beside him
I’m on the ledge while your so
Goddamn polite and composed
And I know you see me
And you’re making it look so easy
What comes and goes I’d go with out
I know you’re fine but what if I
(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout)
Fallout, through the fallout
(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout)
I know you’re fine but what if I
(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout)
Fallout, through the fallout
(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout)
You’re the fallout

(What do I do?
But what do I do?
What do I do?
But what do I do?)
I know you’re fine, but what do I do?
I know you’re fine, but what do I

I know you’re fine but what if I
(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout)
Fallout, through the fallout
(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout)
I know you’re fine but what if I (fallout)
I’m awake, (fallout) and trying (fallout)
While you’re sleeping like a babe beside him (fallout)
I’m on the ledge (fallout) while you’re so (fallout)
Goddamn polite and composed
(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout)
Fallout, through the fallout
(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout)
Fallout, through the fallout
(Fallout) fallout (fallout) fallout (fallout)
