Track Name: Louder Than Words
What is it about you that keeps me anchored here?
Tied to an idea out of misery and fear
You strong-armed me into this selfish mess you made
Throwing lines, pretending like you know me the best

But things can change
Feelings especially
We’re not the same
You didn’t want to be

My intuition warned me this would be the last
Favor I ever did for you
I hope that this was worth it
Once the truth came into focus
I knew this couldn’t last

I took you off your pedestal
And realized this whole while
I was just somebody
Who could pass your time

But things have changed
Me especially
We’re not the same
I wouldn’t want to be

My intuition warned me this would be the last
Favor I ever did for you
I hope that this was worth it
Once the truth came into focus
I knew this couldn’t last

You always said “Actions speak louder than words”
Your actions told me everything
Even when I heard words I had waited too many years for
I don’t owe you anything
I don’t care anymore

My intuition warned me this would be the last
Favor I ever did for you
I hope that this was worth it
Once the truth came into focus
I knew this couldn’t last
Track Name: Dead Weight
Bracing myself for the watershed
I can see your levy break
I’m caught in the path
Destruction and self-hate
Both your middle names
Don’t you get tired of living afraid?

Don’t you get tired of living afraid?

Like everything’s darker on this side of town
Hide under covers and keep your head down
Unhappy at your core, nothing ever goes your way
Just sit there and mourn all your past better days
Past better days

Cry for attention
When I bend you scream
“I don’t want to talk about it”
Your bitter words keep ringing in my head
How can I listen when you talk like that?

How can I listen when you talk like that?

Like everything’s darker on this side of town
Hide under covers and keep your head down
Unhappy at your core, nothing ever goes your way
Just sit there and mourn all your past better days
Past better days

You always remember the bad
I can’t remember the last smile we shared
Dead weight, you pull me under
Consuming all I had to offer

Cause everything’s darker on this side of town
Hide under covers and keep your head down
Unhappy at your core, nothing ever goes your way
Just sit there and mourn all your past better days

Everything’s darker on this side of town
Hide under covers and keep your head down
Unhappy at your core, nothing ever goes your way
Just sit there and mourn all your past better days
Past better days
Track Name: Misery Loves Company
I’m so tired of singing you to sleep
Can’t dry your eyes
Living your victim life
I’m so tired
Can’t give you any more of me
Swallowed by your sheets
Shake your fist as I leave

Hang your arms over the bathroom sink
Asking “What have I become?”
What have I become?
“How is this what’s left of me?”
What have I become?
What have I become?

Even in the moments when
I catch a glimpse of who you’ve been
A prism in the window
Casting light over the room
Your anger keeps you crimson
The only color you see
Anymore

Hang your arms over the bathroom sink
Asking “What have I become?”
What have I become?
“How is this what’s left of me?”
What have I become?
What have I become?

Remember when
All the “could’ves” could have been?
I remember when
I remember when
Remember when
All the “could’ves” could have been?
You waited too long
Too long and I’m gone

Hang your arms over the bathroom sink
Asking “What have I become?”
What have I become?
“How is this what’s left of me?”
What have I become?
What have I become?
Track Name: Cheap Shots
Used to getting all you want
Walk around with your hand out
Smooth talker
Danger in a dark shirt
Set your traps and snare the weak
With a smile and well-placed wink
I see through your smoke
To the emptiness in your soul

What makes you think
I owe you anything?

Selfish, entitled
Think I’m hooked, but I won’t
Be bought by your methods
Your rich lines are tasteless

Careful not to lose your place
In each tale you weave and snake
Slither closer
Breathing deep you close in
Target marked, you strike to kill
Drive your venom deep
So sure “she’s hooked”
But a chill in my spine
Ensures your body won’t meet mine

What makes you think
I owe you anything?

Selfish, entitled
Think I’m hooked, but I won’t
Be bought by your methods
Your rich lines are tasteless
(x2)

(Instrumental Bridge)

Selfish, entitled
Think I’m hooked, but I won’t
Be bought by your methods
Your rich lines are tasteless
(x3)

Selfish, entitled
Your rich lines are tasteless
Oh, you’re tasteless
