The lyrics of 'The End' detail some of what they've been through.

"Every couple of years now, a doctor says I'm sick / Pulls out a brand new bag of tricks / And then they lay it on me / And at first, it was my brain, then a skeleton in pain," she sings. "When I met you, I said I would never die / But the joke was always mine 'cause I'm racing against time."

Halsey has previously spoken about their ongoing battle with endometriosis.
