zephyrluse I can't tell you how much I love this album. It's the grungy, dark sound I've been searching for since the 90s. Favorite track: Future Discounted.

summer villain I love a good "guitars drop out on the verse," and "Who's The Narcissist" is a verry good one, with a barbed lyric, solid hook, and an excellent vocal performance. Song of the week! Favorite track: Who's The Narcissist?.

All death It's got me thinking that I'm next Not yet My hand's confirmed what's in my chest I'm ready to leave It's a long road It's a little of a stretch You're invited You're invited You're invited You're invited and I won't take your energy I just want you there with me All threats They've got me thinking that I'm next And yet My heart confirms I won't regret I'm ready to leave It's a long road It's a little of a stretch, inside You're invited You're invited and I won't take your energy I just want you there with me Okay don't come I'll make you come You're invited You're invited and I won't take your energy I just want you there with me

Hoax 03:14
We will have to save ourselves Blunt but thoughtful nonetheless We are hiding way down low Sacrificing limbs for rope, a hope hoax Oh no Oh no Just us Just us We will have to save ourselves With physical and mental health We're ascending way too slow Plagiarizing hymns and troves, a growth hoax Oh no Oh no Just us Just us No one is coming, no one No one is coming, no one

Better View 03:32
One drink, fight, now we're here at the party Nothing to eat, so let's snack on our attitudes Fills us up, it's the foreplay, it's bonding You wanted the middle, so show me some gratitude And I adore you better When we're talking shit outside And you ignore the effort When I'm on my knees, well We've reached a high, I'm trying to show you A better view while I'm trying to know you Reached a high, I'm trying to show you A better view is better for you and I Taking us home to a new floor, I'm sorry Nothing predictable, hope that it flatters you When we awake, reconnect with some coffee while we Smoke on a mount, and recite some beatitudes And I adore you better When we're talking shit outside And you ignore the effort When I'm on my knees, well We've reached a high, I'm trying to show you A better view while I'm trying to know you Reached a high, I'm trying to show you A better view is better for you and I And I adore you better When we're talking shit outside And you ignore the effort When I'm on my knees, well We've reached a high, I'm trying to show you A better view while I'm trying to know you Reached a high, I'm trying to show you A better view is better for you and I

I I I think you see nothing good about me lately I'm in fact sure that you find me super uninspired I'm on a ride that will, will inevitably be over Fake thoughts, they come and go Fake thoughts, I should not show them I hate myself and my body and all that goes along with I'm not myself so I latch onto what makes you different I bet you think about what it would be like if this were over Fake thoughts, they come and go Fake thoughts, I should not show them I look inside and think maybe it's me who wants this over Fake thoughts, they come and go Fake thoughts, I should not show They come and go They come and go They come and go I should not show They come and go They come and go They come and go I should not show They come and go They come and go They come and go They come and go

I like what I like and you like what you like And sometimes the likes meet and explode into fights We whisper our concerns, and somehow it still hurts Reflections are deadly, rebirth impending We don't leave each other this time We have to play out the contract we signed Hired help by the universes Maybe that's just me, the cards read and they hissed Uhh, who's the narcissist??? Coexist? We just exist here in resist And maybe that's just you which makes me helpless We re-voice our concerns, and somehow it still hurts The mirror distorted, the images warn us Uhh, who's the narcissist??? We don't leave each other this time We have to play out the contract we signed Hired help by the universes Maybe that's just me, the cards read and they hissed Uhh, who's the narcissist???

Relativity 04:13
Tapped into childlike my mind My puzzles, so clandestine Been fast to fix the party fouls Could heal you with a phone call now I am the unconventional I'll be the unconditional I found the weight of the world and feel it now How the hell did we get here How the hell did we get here How the hell did we get here How the hell did we get here I used to make you first inside That's just the way I felt inside I want to love myself the most And still get fucked by you the most I am the unconventional I'll be the unconditional I heard the fate of the world and feel it now How the hell did we get here How the hell did we get here How the hell did we get here How the hell did we get here How the hell did we get here How the hell did we get here How the hell did we get here How the hell did we get here

I did a hard thing but I don't get hard now A dramatization of How it pains to grow I wanna know for sure How I know for sure That it'll work for sure I wanna know Oh I know you're not a liar But don't you know you can't expect what you push away from And while I know I'm not a liar I guess I can't expect what I push away too I did a hard thing so You don't get hard now A dramatization of How the envy shows I wanna know for sure How I know for sure That it'll work for sure I wanna know Oh I know you're not a liar But don't you know you can't expect what you push away from And while I know I'm not a liar I guess I can't expect what I push away too So scarred So barred So necessarily hard Oh I know you're not a liar But don't you know you can't expect what you push away from And while I know I'm not a liar I guess I can't expect what I push away too

Empathy 03:23
The outside facts Show that I did call for you For years inside I tried to find this part of truth And when you're totally lost You get to find everything And when you're totally lost The next thing is everything I never wanted company Then welcomed almost anything I always wanted empathy I feel it now My insides tried To draw this ride 'til it had a soul The slide outside Is now alive, length unknown It's funny to be lost in Something you designed yourself It's funny in the sense that The right word can't exist I never wanted company Then welcomed almost anything I always wanted empathy I feel it now My body cannot comprehend My body cannot comprehend My body can't process love I never wanted company Then welcomed almost anything I always wanted empathy I feel it now

It's not likely now Everlasting love's not meant to be found And I told you what I thought of you That stage lights only move you But nothing beats the punchline Of the joke you thought I told you You come around like creatures on a carousel so slow But they can't dismount, I can't amount to where you'd rather go, oh It's not likely now Everlasting love is on it's way out 'Cause I wanted to be wanted But we disagree so often And we know that this is temporary Hold our breath, don't make a sound So count on breaking, count on nothing I do the math alone But I can't count this cause it doesn't count I can't, no Everlasting love Everlasting love Everlasting love Everlasting love Well this is how it goes my friends Everlasting love's a trend Everlasting love
