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.

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 give me some more of that iodine.

I can't make reality connect,
I'll push 'til I have nothing left.
Bit 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.

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 give me some more of that iodine.

I can't make reality connect,
I'll push 'til I have nothing left.
Bit 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 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.

I can't make reality connect,
I'll push 'til I have nothing left.
Bit 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.
So if we want to wake up,
Why we still singing these lullabies
(Why we still singing these lullabies)

    The song is about self muiltavtion (or cut). Because we she say "we do this to ourselfs" she is taking about the self inficked injures. Believe or not some people are in love with the feel that get when they harm themselves. Most people with is disorder will make themselves believe that nothing is wrong wish is way she's say "we want to wake up", but they keep thing themselves the lies (lullabies). She also talked about
    how she does it to herself and how she's going with a knife.

    I believe this song has alot about.. Heroin, (or some other drug which can be shooten up). Because she refers to pain and how she heals it with her so called "iodine" (heroin). The song deals a lot with how she found out baout her addiction and how "she does this to herself" even though "she doesn't like pain" but she "brings it to life" aka "cures" it with heroin
