Lyrics

I’ve never fit into any category
Always deemed an outcast
Since I was in Sunday School
And all the cool kids said I was weird
It’s exactly the same, they say
“Why do you dress that way?
Why do you act that way?
Why aren’t you just like me?”
So is that what you really wanna say to me?
You playin’ games with me
Telling me if I’m unkind
Still you abandon me
Calling me words I’m not
Painting a picture that’s false
You must not know my heart
But I know it isn’t your fault
You live in a world in your clutch
You don’t get out very much
Livin’ in a fake world full of facades and chaotic behavior
You pull the lever for fun
Yell, “Fire” then you just run
Fire drill
What would happen if a nuke just hit?
Would you say bye to your family? Would you post about it?
Fire drill
If it all went up in flames one day
Would you give your mom a hug before your house burned away?
It kills
I wish the best for you and
You think I ignore you too, but
Really I’m tryna live my own life
And be present more, and so should you
It’s alright to
Cryin’ inside
‘Cause nothin’ I say ever comes out right
We’re on the same side
If I’m honest with you, you just run and hide
I’m bad at public speaking
But I’m speaking now, so hear me out (shut up)
I personally believe that everyone is fully capable
Of more than what they’re doing
All of the bullying
All of the screwing around with people they don’t even really know, oh (blah, blah, blah)
Eatin’ a hate soufflé and an angry bitter sorbet
All ’cause you were bored one day
Losing your wits and your grace
Fire drill
What would happen if a nuke just hit?
Would you say bye to your family? Would you post about it?
Fire drill
If it all went up in flames one day
Would you give your mom a hug before your house burned away?
It kills
I wish the best for you and
You think I ignore you too, but
Really I’m tryna live my own life
And be present more, and so should you
It’s alright to
I am not the government
I am not the fucked up men
I am not a part of anything that is hateful
Love is seeping out my pores
I don’t hold anger anymore
Even for people who hurt and betray me (okay)
I am not the government
I am not the fucked up men (gross)
I am not a part of anything that is hateful
Love is seeping out my pores
I don’t hold anger anymore
Even for people who hurt and betray me
Fire drill
What would happen if a nuke just hit?
Would you say bye to your family? Would you post about it?
Fire drill
If it all went up in flames one day
Would you give your mom a hug before your house burned away?
It kills
I wish the best for you and
You think I ignore you too, but
Really I’m tryna live my own life
And be present more, and so should you
It’s alright to
I’m getting out of here
