Do Better (3:50)

Cover of Say Anything

From Say Anything and 3 other releases

Frontman Max Bemis told Alternative Press (Source Do Better Songfacts): “This is a song I wrote later on in the writing process. It’s about the recognition that we live in a flawed society. I wrote the lyrics first. They were a criticism about myself and, like, this really negative song. What I realized when I finally finished the lyrics is that I had overcome a lot of the things that I was making fun of about myself, and that to write a song about those things would be a novelty or sort of typical Say Anything act - to make a negative, self-deprecating song. So my goal was to write a positive, uplifting song, but still have it be very “Say Anything.” It’s about the ability every human being has to fulfill his or her potential. It doesn’t mean we can all be godlike, but we can do better than how we tend to do. Once you realize that, you have a lot more options open to you as a human being.”

Life is not a spark in space, an episode of Will and Grace,
Controversial yet mundane, Debrah's messing with your brain
Even scientologists know there's more to all of this
You search the ruins for trap doors, wonder what you're put here for
