I used to stay up late
And turn the TV and the internet both up to eleven
It was a smokescreen for how
I used to wallow in the hollow sound of my shallow breathing
I used to sit and wait
For Fate to finally contemplate the cards that she was dealing
Me, I never saw fit to meet the blinds
I'd rather fold up tight and try to hide
And just hit to the
Ceiling

I like dead bars, I like slow cars
And I like red lights
I like slow bars, I like dead cars
And I like resolving fights
With words
I don't know what you've heard
But I've changed for the better
I've changed for the better

I used to stay up late
And drone on like a dial tone 'bout my lonely life in space
Drinking sweet lemons, eating sour grapes
When the starlight hit me harder than your fist into my face
I used to sit and wait
For the phone to break my cone of silence
Break me out my just-in-case
I used to eat to beat the band
But then my heart could hardly keep a beat
And my feet were stumbling in
Place

I like dead bars, I like slow cars
And I like red lights
I like slow bars, I like dead cars
And I like resolving fights
With words
I don't know what you've heard
But I've changed for the better
I've changed for the better

I know you've heard many awful things
And I know you're wondering
If I'm sorry for the man I've been
Or sorrier for the man I'm becoming
And time makes more change than a soda machine
But if you go for the cherry coke
Your life could be this sweet
And I've seen and done many awesome things
That I've become the one who keeps
Evolving

I like dead bars, I like slow cars
And I like red lights
I like slow bars, I like dead cars
And I like resolving fights
With words
I don't know what you've heard
But I've changed for the better
I've changed for the better
I've changed for the better (I have)
I've changed for the better (this time)
I've changed for the better (at last)
I've changed for the better (I'm fine)
