Palisades – Better Chemicals lyrics

[Verse 1]
Another night
Leaves up in my head,
Leaves me in my dread,
Recycling the bad dreams.
So can you tell me how to make it stop short of being dead?
Mouth is hanging open, shot eyes are full of lead.

[Pre-Chorus]
I just wanna let you know,
Sometimes I don't let it show.

[Chorus]
I need better chemicals, I know,
Cause nothing helps anymore, oh no!
Need better chemicals to show,
You that I can be more.

[Verse 2]
Another me
Free from hurting you,
But I guess that's what I do.
I'm stuck here in this complex,
And I can't
Separate the side of me that's putting up the walls,
I don't wanna lie so I just don't pick up the call.

[Pre-Chorus]
I wish I could let you know,
Sometimes I don't let it show.

[Chorus]
I need better chemicals, I know,
Cause nothing helps anymore, oh no!
Need better chemicals to show,
You that I can be more, oh oh.

[Hook]
Break me down and cut me up, this can never be enough.
Break me down and cut me up, my soul, my bones.
Break me down and cut me up, this can never be enough.
Break me down and cut me up, my curse, my hope
Break me down and cut me up, this can never be enough.
Break me down and cut me up, my soul, my bones.
Break me down and cut me up, this can never be enough.
Break me down and cut me up, my curse, my hope

[Bridge]
I need better chemicals, I know,
Cause nothing helps anymore, oh no!
Need better chemicals to show,
You that I can be more, oh oh.

[Outrp]
I need better chemicals, I know,
I need better chemicals, I know,
I need better chemicals, I know,
I need better chemicals.

    I absolutely love this song, It's meanings are relatable in a way not many other artists can express, I feel the emotion, "Break me down and cut me up, This can never be enough" - I have rc bpd and have chewed through many different medications that haven't helped, each one changing me in different ways, had kidney failure from one branch of treatment, the feeling of being broken down and wondering if anything will be enough to calm my mind is where this song really nailed it for me and got through on a very personal level, the whole song is awesome, the calm verse opposed to the more raw and expressive chorus.
