I say I wanna be healthy, but I turn up the noise
And the IV drips a steady stream of poison
I think I'm just in love with the feeling
Break my bones so I can feel them healing

PRE-CHORUS:
Crazy's, I believe, the medical term
When we wanna recover, but we don't wanna learn
Keep breaking what's been fixed a thousand times
And gimme some more of that iodine

CHORUS:
I can't make reality connect
I push 'til I have nothing left
But if we want to wake up,
Why we still singing these lullabies?
I'll run in circles 'til I crash
One day these steps will be my last
So if we want to wake up,
Why we still singing these lullabies?

I say I wanna be happy, but I quickly forget
When I sabotage all the good I've got left
Depression's like a big fur coat
It's made of dead things but it keeps me warm

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

I don't like pain but I bring it to life
I don't like scars but I'm good with a knife
I don't like tears but I'm starting to cry
When I realize I'm destroying my life

I do this to myself
I do this to myself
Stop blaming someone else
We do this to ourselves

CHORUS

So if we want to wake up,
Why we still singing these (why we still singing these lullabies?)

    General Commentthis is an amazing song!

    Im positive it means that no matter how many times she tries to go back to ¨normal¨ she just comes back to the never ending cycle of depression.
