                [Intro]
Bm   Em   D   A#dim/C#   x2
 
 
[Verse 1]
     Bm             Em      D                 A#dim/C#
I've never fit into any category, always deemed an outcast
      Bm            Em               D                  A#dim/C#
Since I was in Sunday School and all the cool kids said I was weird
      Bm
It's exactly the same, they say:
            Em                             D
"Why do you dress that way? Why do you act that way?
                             A#dim/C#
Why aren't you just like me?"
           Bm
So is that what you really wanna say to me?
            Em
You playin' games with me
                          D
Tellin' me if I'm a cunt, still you abandon me
                     A#dim/C#
Calling me words I'm not, paintin' a picture that's false
Bm                                Em
You must not know my heart, but I know it isn't your fault
    D                               A#dim/C#
You live in a world in your clutch, you don't get out very much
Bm                                Em                    D
Livin' in the fake world, full of facades and chaotic behavior
                       A#dim/C#
You pull the lever for fun, yell, "fire," then you just run
 
 
[Chorus]
     Bm                            Em
Fire drill, what would happen if a nuke just hit?
              D                             A#dim/C#
Would you say bye to your family? Would you post about it?
     Bm                          Em
Fire drill, if it all went up in flames one day
          D                               A#dim/C#
Would you give your mom a hug before your house burned away?
   Bm                Em
It kills, I wish the best for you
   D            A#dim/C#
And you think I ignore you too, but
Bm                  Em
  Really, I'm tryna live my own life
D                          A#dim/C#
  And be present more, and so should you, it's alright to
 
 
[Verse 2]
Bm     Em
Cry in-inside
       D                        A#dim/C#
'Cause nothin' I say ever comes out right
Bm           Em
We're on the same side
       D                         A#dim/C#
If I'm honest with you, you just run and hide
    Bm            Em
I'm bad at public speaking
        D               A#dim/C#
But I'm speaking now so hear me out (Shut up)
  Bm           Em             D             A#dim/C#
I personally believe that everyone is fully capable
   Bm                                       Em
Of more than what they're doing, all of the bullying
                                D                             A#dim/C#
All of the screwing around with people they don't even really know, oh (Blah, blah, blah)
Bm                            Em
Eatin' a hate soufflé, and an angry bitter sorbet
     D
All 'cause you were bored one day
            A#dim/C#
Losing your wits and your grace
 
 
[Chorus]
     Bm                            Em
Fire drill, what would happen if a nuke just hit?
              D                             A#dim/C#
Would you say bye to your family? Would you post about it?
     Bm                          Em
Fire drill, if it all went up in flames one day
          D                               A#dim/C#
Would you give your mom a hug before your house burned away?
   Bm                Em
It kills, I wish the best for you
   D            A#dim/C#
And you think I ignore you too, but
Bm                  Em
  Really, I'm tryna live my own life
D                          A#dim/C#
  And be present more, and so should you, it's alright to
 
 
[Bridge]
Bm
I am not the government
Em
I am not the f**ked up men
D                     A#dim/C#
I am not a part of anything that is hateful
Bm                              Em
Love is seeping out my pores, I don't hold anger anymore
 D                             A#dim/C#
Even for people who hurt and betray me (Okay)
Bm
I am not the government
Em
I am not the f**ked up men (Gross)
D                     A#dim/C#
I am not a part of anything that is hateful
Bm                              Em
Love is seeping out my pores, I don't hold anger anymore
 D
Even for people who hurt and betray me
 
 
[Chorus]
     Bm                            Em
