Track Name: Effortless (Acoustic)
Oh my god it’s not a secret what it is you do to me, you pick me up to watch me fall and you plan it carefully.
This love was a shot in the dark thought you knew it too, making something out of nothing is what we do.

I spent most of my days this summer convincing myself I’m well, but I tend to feel most human when I’m not feeling human at all.
I’d give if you’d give let’s find some common ground, this sinking ship can always be turned around.

I remember every condescending word you screamed at me, I remember every stupid fight it felt like your therapy.
Every missed call late at night slave to my phone, wake up with a voicemail message with your sarcastic tone.

I spent most of my days this summer convincing myself I’m well, but I tend to feel most human when I’m not feeling human at all.
I’d give if you’d give let’s find some common ground, this sinking ship can always be turned around.

But not one minute more, I won’t let this go to war, I’ll pick myself off the fucking floor, I refuse to be ignored.

All our old favorite songs are painful fucking memories of a better day when things came oh so effortlessly.
All our old favorite songs are painful fucking memories of a better day when things came oh so effortlessly.

I spent most of my days this summer convincing myself I’m well, but I tend to feel most human when I’m not feeling human at all.

Track Name: Weight of the World (Acoustic)
Starve myself of what I love thought I’d be a bit more honest, mechanical in thought all ambition discarded.
With a one track mind I thought I’d rule the world by now, I’ll never be looked over so you can keep your doubt.

Careful, I’m more toxic then I seem, don’t get to close to me, don’t get to close to me.
You say I’m fine but you know I’m not, it’s all in the way were taught, it’s all in the way were taught.

I’ll bend until I break say the words that no one means, just to make it through the day with a shred of dignity.
Dull planned lines read from a script I’m getting tired of, but no one seems to notice the damage that it does.

Careful, I’m more toxic then I seem, don’t get to close to me, don’t get to close to me.
You say I’m fine but you know I’m not, it’s all in the way were taught, it’s all in the way were taught.

The only thing that got me through those long nights waiting was the hope of better days doing what I love, if it doesn’t happen then I wasted all this time are you listening, are you listening, are you listening, are you listening, are you listening, are you listening?
Track Name: Better Days (Acoustic)
It’s been a long time since I’ve felt like myself, it’s the new me happiness based on wealth.
When I was younger I never would have thought, the world was so big and so fucked up.
Yes I know I’m feeling insecure. Yes I know I wanted this more.

It’s no secret we’ve seen better days, I’m not okay, it’s the one thing agreed upon.
Tonight’s the same as every night before, I’ll just ignore all my problems go back to bed.

All my oldest friends give me blank stares through dead eyes that I don’t recognize anymore.
It’s enough to make me sick if I even cared at all, I thought we’d never grow up miscalculated fall.
Yes I know in the years we’ve changed I just miss when we were one in the same.

It’s no secret we’ve seen better days, I’m not okay, it’s the one thing agreed upon.
Tonight’s the same as every night before, I’ll just ignore all my problems go back to bed.

I’m not mad, I’m more bitter, I got bored nothing mattered.
The pieces their all there I couldn’t see them, hard to walk when you stare at the ceiling.
Track Name: Live Defeated (Acoustic)
The weather dictates all my moods, I’d be afraid to fail if I had something left to lose, a blank slate for your abuse. I’m not at fault I was complicit, stood on the sidelines and watched you kill this, I’m not alright but I’m getting there.

I just want for us to be okay like we were when we were kids, said the years they would bring happiness but ignorance is bliss. Your keenly self-aware too much for your own good, you sabotage yourself more than I ever could.

As far as we drifted you always came back hell at its worst bearable at its best, I’m sick of it all now the way that your voice sounds saying were fine when you know were not. Saying were fine when you know were not.

It’s an arms race to see who cares less the spark we used to have all but useless, I see you waiting their right by my side just a little late a little far behind. Not a monster just have my own views about love and loss what it does to you, your speech unwavering so you don’t confuse what might be a lie and what might be true.

As far as we drifted you always came back hell at its worst bearable at its best, I’m sick of it all now the way that your voice sounds saying were fine when you know were not. I’d die daily, live defeated, under your rule I can see that it’s all in vain we’ll waste away, I’m at peace with it anyways.

You’re not the same as the last time that we met it’s not good or bad it’s just different, if you missed me you’re not showing it I’m a bit more cavalier you know this.
