  • Their end of days looks more like tomorrow
    Their end of days started with a pill

    But they're not junkies like the news guy said
    They're just kids who've gotten over their heads
    Big Pharma hooked them in the first place
    And it won't stop

    Come on, Sean, you're on drugs
    You're gonna run out of luck
    You could still find your way, you know
    It won't get better

    Come on home while you can
    I know I don't understand
    You could still find your way, you know
    It won't get better

    When those pills are gone, what's gonna happen?
    When those pills are gone, what drug is next?

    We've made a nation full of kids on dope
    They're looking down now at the end of their rope
    So now who's gonna come and fix this
    'Cause it won't stop

    Come on, don't tie it off
    I'll be your undoer of knots
    You could still find your way, you know
    It won't get better

    Come on home while you can
    I know I don't understand
    You could still find your way, you know
    It won't get better

    It won't get better
    It won't get better
    It won't get better
    It won't get better

    Now we've made a nation full of kids on dope
    They're looking down now at the end of their rope
    So now who's gonna come and fix this
    'Cause it won't stop now
    Yeah, yeah

    'Cause they're not junkies like the news guy said
    They're just kids who've gotten over their heads
    Big Pharma hooked them in the first place
    And it won't stop

    Come on, Sean, you're on drugs
    You're gonna run out of luck
    You could still find your way, you know
    It won't get better

    Come on home while you can
    I know I don't understand
    You could still find your way, you know
    It will get better
