"Better" as written by and Richard/meltzer Landis....
Still didn't know what happened
When you knocked upon my door
The things you had, the life you lived
All the dreams you had before.
Your eyes you face your heart and soul
You know they said it all
What happened on that day back then
The moment hurt us all

Now you can see the reason why not everyone's the same
And you don't have to please them, or try hard to save your name

They said you'd never get anywhere,
Well they don't care and it's just not fair
That you know, and I know better.
They said you'd never get anywhere,
Well they don't care and it's just not fair
That you know, and I know better.
(Yes I do)

Well the days go by and you wonder why, "is this really true?"
Your heart says "No" but your feelings show everything you never knew
But you and I, we knew deep down, that ain't really you
We always knew that it'd work out right and we could start anew

Now you can see the reason why not everyone's the same
And you don't have to please them, or try hard to save your name

They said you'd never get anywhere,
Well they don't care and it's just not fair
That you know, and I know better.
They said you'd never get anywhere,
Well they don't care and it's just not fair
That you know, and I know better.

Well things ain't always what they seem
So wake up man get outta your dreams
Things ain't always what they seem so wake up!
Well things ain't always what they seem
Wake up man, you're in my dreams!
Things ain't always...

Oh now you can see the reason why not everyone's the same
And you don't have to please them, or try hard

They said you'd never get anywhere,
Well they don't care and it's just not fair
That you know, and I know better.
They said you'd never get anywhere,
Well they don't care and it's just not fair
That you know, and I know better.
They said you'd never get anywhere,
Well they don't care and it's just not fair
That you know, and I know better

A one, two, three, four, they said you'd never get anywhere,
Well they don't care and it's just not fair

You're never ever gonna get anywhere
That's what they tell me

Never, never, never, never, never, never, never gonna get anywhere
They don't care, and that's not fair!

They said you'd never get anywhere
They don't care and it's just not fair
That you know, and I know (better)

    I think this is about a girl who tried to suicide after being bullied because she tried to fit in and that he understands her
