Doug Mayo-Wells 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?.

Track Name: You're Invited
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
Track Name: Hoax
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
Track Name: Better View
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
Track Name: Fake Thoughts
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
Track Name: Who's The Narcissist?
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???
Track Name: Relativity
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
Track Name: A Dramatization
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
Track Name: Empathy
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
Track Name: Everlasting Love
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
