[Verse 1]
Am Am Dm Dm C C Em Em
I’ve never fit into any category, always deemed an outcast
Am Am Dm Dm C C Em Em
Since I in Sunday School and all the cool kids said I was weird
Am Am
It’s exactly the same, they say:
Dm Dm C C
“Why do you dress that way? Why do you act that way?
Em Em
Why aren’t you just like me?”
Am Am
So is that what you really wanna say to me?


Dm Dm
You playin’ games with me
C C
Tellin’ me you’re for my kind, still you abandon me
E7 E7
Calling me words I’m not, paintin’ a picture that’s false
Am Am Dm Dm
You must not know my heart, but I know it isn’t your fault
C C Em Em
You live in a world in your clutch, you don’t get out very much
Am Am Dm Dm C C
Livin’ in the fake world, full of facades and chaotic behavior
E7 E7 E E
You pull the lever for fun, yell, “fire, then you just run


[Chorus]
Am Am Dm Dm
Fire drill, what would happen if a nuke just hit?
C C Em Em
Would you say bye to your family? Would you post about it?
Am Am Dm Dm
Fire drill, if it all went up in flames one day
C C Em Em
Would you give your mom a hug before your house burned away?
Am Am Dm Dm
It kills, I wish the best for you
C C E7 E7 Am Am
And you think I ignore you too, but
Dm Dm C C
Really, I’m tryna live my own life
E E
And be present more, and so should you, it’s alright to

[Verse 2]
Am Am Dm Dm
Cryin’ inside
C C Em Em
‘Cause nothin’ I say ever comes out right
Am Am Dm Dm
We’re on the same side
C C Em Em
If I’m honest with you, you just run and hide
Am Am Dm Dm
I’m bad at public speaking
C C Em Em
But I’m speaking now so hear me out (Shut up)
Am Am Dm Dm C C Em Em
I personally believe that everyone is fully capable
Am Am Dm Dm
Of more than what they’re doing, all of the bullying
C C Em Em
All of the screwing around with people they don’t even really know, oh (Blah, blah, blah)
Am Am Dm Dm
Eatin’ a hate soufflé, and an angry bitter sorbet
C C
All ’cause you were bored one day
E7 E7
Losing your wits and your grace


[Chorus]
Am Am Dm Dm
Fire drill, what would happen if a nuke just hit?
C C Em Em
Would you say bye to your family? Would you post about it?
Am Am Dm Dm
Fire drill, if it all went up in flames one day
C C E7 E7
Would you give your mom a hug before your house burned away?
Am Am Dm Dm
It kills, I wish the best for you
C C Em Em Am Am
And you think I ignore you too, but
Dm Dm C C
Really, I’m tryna live my own life
E E
And be present more, and so should you, it’s alright to

[Break]
Am Am
I am not the government
Dm Dm
I am not the fucked up men
C C E E
I am not a part of anything that is hateful
Am Am Dm Dm
Love is seeping out my pores, I don’t hold anger anymore
C C E E
Even for people who hurt and betray me (Okay)
Am Am
I am not the government
Dm Dm
I am not the fucked up men (Gross)
C C E E
I am not a part of anything that is hateful
Am Am Dm Dm
Love is seeping out my pores, I don’t hold anger anymore
C C E E
Even for people who hurt and betray me

[Chorus]
Am Am Dm Dm
Fire drill, what would happen if a nuke just hit?
C C Em Em
Would you say bye to your family? Would you post about it?
Am Am Dm Dm
Fire drill, if it all went up in flames one day
C C E7 E7
Would you give your mom a hug before your house burned away?
Am Am Dm Dm
It kills, I wish the best for you
C C Em Em Am Am
And you think I ignore you too, but
Dm Dm C C
Really, I’m tryna live my own life
Em Em
And be present more, and so should you, it’s alright to

[Outro]
I’m getting out of here
