Get Well Lyrics
We're not happy 'til everyone knows we're sick
And that's just how we like it
We've hurt bad enough, right, we've earned it
Don't tell the others but it's all getting old
I mean how many more times must...

I think she's saying how like someone else said, they get used to being sad. She actually wants to be happy. She wants to get well. "I want out, I know I don't need this. Can you find me friends that don't rank me on what I've been through
The more battle scars the more attention it gets you " She want's friends who don't judge her for her scars. "the rest of you so content, stay where you are but it hurts like hell" She's not okay with being sad. She knows she deserves to be happy.
This song made me realize I need to save myself.

Right now I'm feeling pretty sick. Going through a rough time. I just wanna get well. I think she's tired of feeling depressed and wants to get out of the hole. She wants to break free. I can relate.

I believe she means about being it means about being in a mental hospital..
''Check your pulse and check your vitals''
They do that to check on you if your normal or not
The mental people in a mental hospital are sick...
''all we got left is a sorry pile of hearts im getting out going to write myself a new start come on dry your eyes meet me on the other side ''
People that feel empathy about that person
and when she means new start is a new life or a new beginning
This song is about getting over depression. The chorus describes depression as a disease that one can recover from and also portrays depression as a sort of game people play with themselves. However, lead vocalist Ariel, says "if it's only a game you lost me, I quit it with the suicidal recital." Finally, to all people suffering from depression she says, "we know better now, we don't have to live like this, go tell them all we don't have to live like this."

I think in this song Ariel is saying that she's sick of emo culture, where people get used to being miserable and just brag about how messed up they are. She doesn't want to be stuck in that rut, she wants to break free, face her past and get well.

"Get Well", a song about overcoming the demons in your past. "I've gone through depression and found in talking with listeners that at some point almost everyone has hated their lives," vocalist Ariel says. "It's so easy to get stuck there, but we want to encourage people to quit letting the past ruin your life. So many people were molested, abused, have messed up home lives, or are dealing with their parents getting divorced, but we're trying to make a statement about getting over the past to the point of not just being healthy, but actually being happy."
