This is the place where dreams are unmade,
Cut into pieces and left in the rain.
They're left in the rain.

This is the place where hearts come undone,
Spill onto the sidewalk and crack in the sun.

I'm boarding up my windows
And locking all my doors,
That's what they're for.
It's better if it's worse than before.

This is the day when promises break,
curl up at the edges turn into mistakes.

So I am smashing up my suitcase
And sleeping on my floor,
I'd rather be bored.
It's better if it's worse than before.

Go on, go on
Go on, go on
Without me

Go on, go on
Go on, go on
Without me

It's better if it's worse than before.
It's better if it's worse than before.
It's better if it's worse than before.
It's better if it's worse than before.

    General CommentThis song has always confused me, but I'm going to take a stab at it's meaning.

    I think it might be about a relationship that has gone bad in the past, but the two people keep holding onto it. As a result, the two people are falling apart. This song is written after a particularly bad fight and he's saying that it's better if our relationship is worse than before because it's about time we realized that we need to break up.
