Track Name: Effortless
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
Track Name: Nowhere Fast
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
Track Name: Jinx
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
Track Name: Torched
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
