LYRICS

*okay. and your diagnosis was officially... s-s-cystitis, right?*
~I don't know.~
*uh, uh, kidney infec-*

THIS WORLD WASN'T MADE FOR US
IT WAS MADE FOR THE HEALTHY
*so, it's hard to say what caused this, i'm gonna call it-*
DON'T THINK WE'RE ALL THAT FUCKED UP
LIVING OUR REALITY

*know what, I think you're right; we're not gonna come to an exact answer on it.*

OUR REALITY'S A REALITY TOO
EVEN IF YOUR LENS IS FOGGED SO YOU CAN'T SEE THE TRUTH

[beep] ~can I drink water now?~
*yes.*

(I'M IN THE)
ICU, AND I SEE YOU JUST ACROSS THE FLOOR
WHY CAN'T THEY SEE YOU?

THIS WORLD DON'T MAKE SPACE FOR YOU
NO, THE WHITE AREN'T STEALTHY
YOUR TRUTH NEVER HID FROM US
HOPE YOU'RE SAFE, HOPE YOU'RE HEALTHY

EVEN IF JUST IGNORING IT WON'T AFFECT YOU ONE BIT, OOH
EVERYONE ALREADY KNOWS YOUR IGNORANCE IS CHOSEN

EVEN IF YOUR EYES ARE CLOSED, YOU CAN'T EVEN SEE YOU
*you just have a little bit different clinical picture than most. like, I think if I would've done that-*
EVEN IF YOU DENY OUR PAIN CAUSE IT'S NOT PAINTED RED

NOWADAYS WE HIDE TOGETHER AND WE CANNOT BE ALONE
IF JUST IGNORING US WON'T AFFECT YOU AT ALL

THIS WORLD WASN'T MADE FOR US
IT WAS MADE FOR THE HEALTHY
DON'T THINK WE'RE ALL THAT FUCKED UP
LIVING OUR REALITY

*very nice about it, I appre--*
~doofy giggle~
*I just get shit on by so many people*
~I- I- I bet, that's why I wanted....~

[beeps]
"oh... it's recording"
~I know. because fuck this place.~
"good job buddy."
