Track Name: I'm Good
Verse 1:
I see things I don’t care to remember
I watch thinking it’s good for me
I stay to prove I’m strong when really the tortures moving on Ab G
I’m a liar exhausting every reality

I’m hurt, I’m broken, I like it
I can’t get perspective on me
So when the voices in my ear whisper secrets I shouldn’t hear
There’s only one thing I know I could ever be

Chorus:
I’m good, I’m good, I’m good
I’m good, I’m good, I’m good
At breaking my own heart

Verse 2:
I swear I’ll calm down when it’s useful
For now, let me drown in negativity
These rhymes so cold and clinical out of a mind most cynical
Build a false sense of security

And walking away was never an option
I’ve got these vices that get me through
See I play these little songs and you’re too dense to catch on
Every fucking time it’s for you

Chorus:
I’m good, I’m good, I’m good
I’m good, I’m good, I’m good
At breaking my own heart

Chorus:
I’m good, I’m good, I’m good
I’m good, I’m good, I’m good
oh I'm good, I'm good I'm good
At breaking my own heart
and better at acting like
It never fell apart
Track Name: Backtracking
Verse 1:
It was simple , It was nice
But hot summer days fade to cool summer nights
I know I’ll recover from loving him but it might take some
Time, time, time

Weeks go by, Oh and I just cry
I sit and miss the days when he was mine
It kills me to know that he’s out there feeling just
Fine, fine, fine

Chorus:
He was out living while I looked through old photographs
He climbed up mountains, I burrowed into the past
He had adventures that taught him how to grow up
While I went backtracking through Europe

Verse 2:
Oh my friends, they don’t know, don’t understand
He’s out exploring and I’ve stopped making plans
He’s touched every ocean and lord he’s still got a hold on these
Hands, hands, hands

Chorus:
He was out living while I looked through old photographs
He climbed up mountains, I burrowed into the past He had adventures that taught him how to grow up
While I went backtracking through Europe

Bridge:
Retrace, rethink, rewind
He’s having great times and I’m just wasting mine

Chorus:
He was out living while I looked through old photographs
He climbed up mountains, I burrowed into the past
He had adventures that taught him how to grow up
While I went backtracking through Europe
Track Name: Obsessive Compulsive Reality
Verse 1:
Fire's slowly burning out
watch all the ashes fall to the ground
And broken windows aren't so scary
when you learn fixing them isn't your burden to carry

Pre-chorus:
You know it's only a matter of time
Everyone begins to blur the lines
Between what's right and what's easy
Goodbye obsessive compulsive reality

Chorus:
We're never the people we promise we'll be
And I'm afraid I'm already as good as I'll ever be
And I'm afraid that might be enough for me

Verse 2:
I'd like to drive away in my car
But sometimes the risk isn't worth the reward
We build up the pressure it's all we can do
And the world feels different when people are counting on you

Pre-chorus:
You know it's only a matter of time
Everyone begins to blur the lines
Between what's right and what's easy
Goodbye obsessive compulsive reality

Chorus:
We're never the people we promise we'll be
And I'm afraid I'm already as good as I'll ever be
And I'm afraid that might be enough for me
