Track Name: Hear, My Dear (Feat. Parabellum)
Everyone knows what you're talking about
If you say what they want to hear
But nobody seems to get it
When you tell 'em how you really feel
I'm sorry it got a little crazy
I'm sorry if I drove you mad
Even though it came from a good place
Know it messed up everything we had

[Parabellum]
And though you refuse
The inspiration of my heart is you
Flashbacks to when we first met
My thoughts review
How can I do without your presence?
My heart is removed
In the absence of your affection
I just feel sorta nude
I'm prayin' for your return
'Til my heart is renewed
I can smell the depression on me
As I run from the fumes
But it's the fear of the truth
That's got my vision all skewed
Cuz I can only see as far
As my feelings for you
I sharpened my battle axe
Chopped my way through
Working my way toward a treasure
I just knew I could prove
I was special enough to keep
If I paid all my dues
Chasing the answer to a question
That you already knew
I pushed my efforts to the limit
Though my winnings were few
Cuz the future you seein'
Ain't including me in the view
Which shall I choose?
Give up and let the pain be subdued
Or pursue the love of another
Though my heart I might lose
Damn...
Track Name: Proof
I don't expect you to
Love me like I love you
I've always been too realistic for my own good
I just want you to
See me like you used to
And I think you know you could
Wish I could get a clue
Or just act more like you
But please don't let this sentiment be misunderstood
Cause if I thought I knew
What I could do for you
You can bet your ass I would

Tell me one more time
Give me the truth
Is it really only you?
Well I want proof

Did you ever think that I might be
That other fish in the sea?
Tell me baby what do you see
When you're looking straight into me

Well I don't mean to whine
I'm sure that I'll be fine
Just need a bit more time to figure all my shit out
It's just that in my mind
Baby you're still all mine
Now tell me what's that all about?
I know you've drawn a line
But I just want a sign
So give me one beyond chance of reasonable doubt
Cause since we redefined
I've gone and lost my spine
Now tell me what's that all about?

Tell me one more time
Give me the truth
Is it really only you?
Well I want proof

Did you ever think that I might be
That other fish in the sea?
Tell me baby what do you see
When you're looking straight into me
Did you ever think that I might be
That other fish in the sea?
Track Name: Is It Anything Or Is It Everything?
Sharing is caring
But what's so daring about sharing
When you're faring as well as you are?
Thinking that you're gonna be
Better than you'll ever be
That's because it seems like all you see is yourself
Is yourself, no one else
It's not all that awful being you
Until you're lying in bed
Hating every single thing you don't do
Thinking that you're gonna be
Better than you'll ever be
That's because it seems like all you see is yourself
Is yourself, and it's hell

The world revolves around you
Don't try to tell me that it ain't true
Cause no matter what you do
You'll never find yourself in anybody else's shoes
Just make peace with your point of view

Your self-esteem is dead on sight
Wondering who'll be the lucky one you're too scared to talk to tonight
Because it's been so long since your baby held you tight
And you still can't figure out why you couldn't make that right
Maybe it was something that you said
That pushed the girl of your dreams into someone else's bed
But there you go again getting caught up in your head
But wait... was it something that I said?
Track Name: Comfortable Instead
Can't think of anything
To do and now I'm tired
Of waiting here alone
And never catching fire
Cause all I wanna do
Is find a place to sit
And stop feeling bad about
How I don't give a shit

The world's at my fingertips
What's it gonna take for me to find my grip?
The world's at my fingertips
What's it gonna take for me to find my grip?

My job hunt's going great
Cause I don't want a job
Turns out there's no demand
For self-entitled snobs
My friends do what they want
I'm comfortable instead
Convinced that greener grass
Is only in my head

The world's at my fingertips
What's it gonna take for me to find my grip?
The world's at my fingertips
What's it gonna take for me to find my grip?
Track Name: Slumzzz
Look at you there
Up on your throne
Describing life on the pavement
All on your own
But when have you been there?
When are you going?
Eating shit with a silver spoon
Is all that you've known

Tell me again how the slums got so much soul
Tell me again how the slums got so much soul

Gentrification
Man that's your favorite word
But nobody's listening
It's like they've already heard
Plus they're probably thinking
"Man what gives him the right?
Isn't he the real problem?
How does he sleep at night?"

Tell me again how the slums got so much soul
Tell me again how the slums got so much soul
Track Name: What We Talk About When We Talk About Love
I know that I can be a real bore sometimes
But I'm starting to think that's just the way I am
And I've heard that loving me can be a chore sometimes
That's just something that I hope you understand

Cause I've tried to change too many times before
And where has it gotten me? What was it for?
Yeah I've tried to change too many times before
But where has it gotten me?

I wanted to be what she wanted me to be
But it's hard to be something that you're not
I'm not trying to push you away
I'm just trying to find a way to say

If you want me
Then you got me
But it's me that you got

If you want me
Then you got me
But it's me that you got

If you want me
Then you got me
But it's me that you got
Track Name: The Way Things Was
I've been thinking
About the way we used to be
And I've been thinking
About the way you used to smile at me

Well I think it's great that we made amends
And I think it's great we tried to be friends
But I just miss the way things was
When we were in love

I know that times have changed
And I know things ain't the same
But I just miss the way things was
When we were in love

Well I've been thinking
About the things we used to say
And I've been thinking
About all the things that stood in our way

Well I think it's great that we made amends
And I think it's great we tried to be friends
But I just miss the way things was
When we were in love

I know that times have changed
And I know things ain't the same
But I just miss the way things was
When we were in love
Track Name: I Just Don't Feel Like Picking Up My Phone Today
I just don't feel like picking up my phone today
I know exactly why you called, I know exactly what you'll say
It's not that I want you to go away
I just don't feel like picking up my phone today

Just because I'm alone doesn't mean I'm lonely
But I appreciate the love that you're trying to show me
Yeah I'm probably in a funk that I just don't see
But I'll keep telling myself that just 'cause I'm alone don't mean I'm lonely

Sometimes the best news is no news
Sometimes the best news is no news
Sometimes the best news is no news
Sometimes the best news is no news

I just don't feel like picking up my phone today
But I hope you'll keep calling
No matter what I say
Track Name: Won't Say Nothin'
I'd say that I love you
But that'd be too easy
I love you's been said before
By him and you and me

I'd say that I need you
But that'd be too easy
Of course I need you
Ain't that plain to see?

So I won't say nothin'
I won't say anything at all
No I won't say nothin'
I won't say anything at all

I'll probably never find a way
To put words to these feelings and say
You're the only thing that gets me through the day

Maybe that's fine
Maybe that's OK
Cause I'd rather keep my mouth shut
Than say something too cliche

So I won't say nothin'
I won't say anything at all
No I won't say nothin'
I won't say anything at all
