and you
you're gonna walk backwards through the room
does that mean i won't see you?
it means you'll walk backwards through the room
tiffany's crying
she's dying to make it out of this hell
well i just laugh
cuz it was my job to be her help
i'm in my bedroom
i found me a corner
where friends won't debate my health
like "how can he save some summer night when he cant save himself?"


you gotta pick me up
come on and pick me
when i'm falling down
you've got to pick me up


cut to december and how can a scalpel tear him to skin
reveal the walks in the park
lord, how can a heart come from two seperate organs?
are gonna make this simple?
do you wanna make me sweeter?
oh
well i know i know i know i know
i'll let you down


pick me up
come on and pick me up
when i'm falling down
you've gotta pick me up


and you
you're gonna walk backwards through the room
does that mean i won't see you?
it means you walk backwards through the room
are gonna make this simple?
do you wanna make me sweeter?
oh
well i know i know i know i know
i'll let you down


pick me up
come on and pick me up
when im falling down
you've gotta pick me up

    General CommentI think it's like he treats his girl like shit and always lets her down, but instead of feeling guilty, he's so fucke up he's kind of like what did you expect? The pick me up part seems kind of mocking like hey you want to be my guardian angel? well let's see if you can come fucking save me. Cool song, i like the concept

    General Comment"prescriptions scripting a timeline
    swing sets, grade schools, and black eyes
    first love, heartbreak and true love
    mistakes, heartbreak and truelove"

    they sing the chorus over that part, but yeah, its there.

    General Comment"cuz it was my job to be her hell" .. hell should be HELP.
    "do you wanna make me sweet?" .. sweetER

    and also in the lyric booklet it shares:
    "prescriptions scripting a timeline
    swing sets, grade schools, and black eyes
    first love, heartbreak and true love
    mistakes, heartbreak and truelove"
    at the end. i have to listen to the song again. but i dont think i ever heard this part?

    General Comment@ heyy there

    Seems to be talking about flawed logic. Like, if you do something backwards then it never happened.
