Tell me that you're alright
Yeah everything is alright.
Oh please tell me that you're alright.
Yeah everything is alright.

Give me a reason to end this discussion,
To break with tradition, to fall and divide.
'Cause I hate the ocean, theme parks and airplanes,
Talking with strangers, waiting in line.
I'm through with these pills that make me sit still.
Are you feeling fine?
Yes, I feel just fine.

Tell me that you're alright.
Yeah everything is alright.
Oh please tell me that you're alright.
Yeah everything is alright.

I'm sick of the things I do when I'm nervous
Like cleaning the oven or checking my tires
Or counting the number of tiles in the ceiling.
Head for the hills, the kitchen's on fire!

I used to rely on self-medication.
I guess I still do that from time to time.
But I'm getting better at fighting the future.
Someday you'll be fine.
Yes, I'll be just fine.

Tell me that you're alright.
Yeah everything is alright.
Oh please tell me that you're alright.
Yeah everything is alright.

Give me a reason
(I don't believe a word)
To end this discussion
(Of anything I heard)
To break with tradition
(They tell me that it's not so hard)
To fall and divide
(It's not so hard)
So let's not get carried
(Away with everything)
Away with the process
(From Here to in-between)
Of elimination
(The long Goodbyes)
I don't want to waste your time.

Tell me that you're alright.
Yeah everything is alright.
Oh please tell me that you're alright.
Yeah everything is alright.

(Alright)
Tell me that you're alright.
(Hi, everything's great)
Yeah everything is alright.
(Hey, everything's fine)
Oh please tell me that you're alright.
(Hey, everything's great)
Yeah everything is alright.

Hey, everything's fine.
Hey, everything's fine.
Hey, everything's fine.
Hey, everything's fine.

    It sounds like he has a mental disorder "I'm sick of the things I do when I'm nervous like cleaning the oven or checking my tires" like OCD or something

    He is saying his doctors want him to tell them that he is getting better so they can end the appointment quicker because, for example, they don't really care about him and he's not getting better, but that's not what they want to hear.
