Effortless 04:28
You – You know all my ins and outs You – Know what it takes to make me shout You – Know I live inside my head You – Know how to send me to the red Chorus Oh, it’s so effortless The way you turn the screws ’til I confess That my sins are all I am and nothing else You – You hold my head beneath the waves You – You tell me that I cannot be saved You – You lock the door and leave me be You – You tell me no one’s really free Chorus You – You know the story of my days You – You know that hell is mine to pay You – Hold your hand out just like a friend But you – You'll keep that grip until the end Chorus You and I, we both know where this ends

Nowhere Fast 05:22
Did you think that I’d lose my head Because you decided to go Did you think that I’d rather be dead You don't know me... You should know better by now My life’s made of things that don’t last No matter the why no matter the how I’m going nowhere fast The dead end where I make my home Should show you all you need to know The tarpit that I call my heart Should be all that you need … Whatever you’re saying to me There’s no way for it to get past The echo that’s booming inside my head Saying I’m going nowhere fast So pack your shit and get out the door I’ll tell everyone we had a blast I’m not making plans cuz what for I’m going nowhere fast

Jinx 04:12
Face down in the mess that’s your own life Can’t let it go, sucking on the strife Scared to death of what it means to look inside When you turn around Then you realize That every goddamn time You’ve been your own jinx Flat out, out against the wind Fists up, charge the world again Saying “Fuck ’em all”, you know they’ll never let you win But if you’d turn around Then you’d realize That every goddamn time You’ve been your own jinx

Torched 05:04
A friend of a friend said you were no friend And that was the end, that was the end Nobody talked, maybe nobody knew And you just disappeared into the blue Sometimes in a window, I think I see your face Then it's gone again, back to whatever place Whatever place you've found, wherever you've gone to ground I hope you're happy and you're content 10 different stories told 20 different ways The mob has its voice and the mob will get its say Tiny little scenes in tiny little rooms And there's nowhere to hide when that voice looms Sometimes in the morning crowd, I think I see your face Then it's gone again, back to whatever place Whatever place you've found, wherever you've gone to ground I hope you're happy, and you're content I never said I wanted you to go I never said I wanted you to go I never said I wanted you to know I never said I wanted you to know I never said I wanted you
