Tom A This LP was certainly “worth it.”

‘I think it doesn't get better than this
and I hope I never take it for granted.’ Favorite track: worth it.

PandasForDinner This album rips open a void in me that I tried to close for years. But in a way that I love. Best album of 2018 for me, good job guys. Favorite track: where you've gone.

Track Name: worth it
with time to think at night, awake
reflecting on our choices made
on several points it's hard to say
but no one's asking anyway
there's always other shows to play
there never was a better way

I think it doesn't get better than this
and I hope I never take it for granted
when one day what we have comes to an end
will it feel like we gave it all that we had?

How would we exist if we never took those chances?
How long can it go?
Will we ever get to a place of satisfaction?
Will we ever know?

I think it doesn't get better than this
and I hope I never take it for granted
When one day what we have comes to an end
Will it feel like we gave it all that we had?
Track Name: where you've gone
Did you know that it'd end this way?
At 22 with so much left to say
You had to go but we needed you to stay
We stood there helpless as you slipped away
Did you know that our hearts would break
and we'd never find someone to take your place?
Dysfunctional, but learning to accept our fate
We moved on knowing of your better days
I'd like to meet you where you've gone
It's harder without you around
I'd like to meet you where you've gone
It's harder without you around
Track Name: you aren't the only one
I've felt this way for so long
I've held your name for too long
and I'm never gonna say it again
I've let resentment go on
You've had your chance to respond
and I'm never gonna hear it again
You aren't the only one I've ever welcomed through
to take a part of me and turn and leave
I'll let the next one do the same you did to me
because I never learn to disbelieve
I think the chances are strong
that you're gonna disappoint me again
I can't admit when you're wrong
For all it would take to show my best side
It's easier to hold on for dear life
Since compromise can't connect with my pride
I'm stuck with this bitterness 'til I die
You aren't the only one I've ever welcomed through
to take a part of me and turn and leave
I'll let the next one do the same you did to me
because I never learn to look out for me
Track Name: move on
I'm thinking about what would happen
if I were to try something bold
and start a new life. wouldn't that be nice?
I'm taking a look at the long list
of every mistake that I made then
and lighting a match and not looking back
With the time that we get let's make the most of it
Learn from the past and forget
I was pretty sure you were wrong
but I did my best to carry on
Until it wasn't feeling right
and I wouldn't put up a fight
I didn't see until the end that it wouldn't make a difference
if the blame was placed on you or me
it would fizzle out eventually
Once we started to live
words meant less than they did
Old distractions lifted
No remembering when
And it's time to let go (we know)
and the lies that were told (can go)
and it's time to move on
Now that i's done I can see straight
it's not really over, it's starting
I'm fixing my life. Will I get it right?
I'm not looking back for a second
I'm not looking back in this lifetime
Track Name: a window
Appreciate the blinding light, it validates your sight
Divert yourself in spectacle and learn to love the world you know
Sometimes it feels like I'm the only one engulfed in fantasy
If I don't question the significance, then I am fast asleep
If I wait for more then all I want will be gone
if the best is in store then what we have now's a lost cause
They know I know and I know you know
I don't wanna let you down but my head is in the clouds
I hope that it's profound that I'll never settle down
A window is all we get
but we just don't see it yet
Appreciate the blinding light it validates your sight
and learn to love the world you know
I don't wanna let you down but my head is in the clouds
Whenever you're around there's this new distracting sound
Like this shiny thing I found has me completely unwound
I hope that it's profound that I'll never settle down
I don't wanna let you down
Track Name: the harder I try (again)
the harder I try, then the further you go
the closest I get's when I leave you alone
the only real thing keeping this afloat
is the distance between the two of our homes
the harder I try, with diminishing hope
I'm reaching the end of a withering rope
the only reason that I haven't let go
is the thought of starting over or being alone
don't leave when I refrain from your petulant games
don't mind making me wait for your attention again
don't leave when I refrain
don't mind making me wait
the harder I try, then the further you go
the harder I try I just end up alone
the harder I tried left diminishing hope
the harder I tried was letting it go
don't leave when I refrain
don't mind making me wait
Track Name: better days
it all was wrong since way back then
so now you're gone and I can breathe again
and I felt it from the first time you let me down
but I never thought you'd let us just drag it out
and I wonder if you can see yourself through other's eyes
I doubt it. when all you see is you it's no surprise
the lines were drawn but you erased them
the feeling's gone..or was it ever there?
now I've been set free from old resentment
it go to the old me, but never again
now you can go your way
while we find better days
it all was wrong since way back then
so now you're gone and I can breathe again
it all was wrong
Track Name: consider the source
to define what you know by a textbook you don't own
probably helps reach your goal of excluding everyone
sure you'd like to explain why you do things this way
but the source you draw from just confuses everyone
I'll wait until you are done making fools out of everyone
using hate speech and misinterpreting old words
to serve your purposes now
to defend using words that you've never really heard
doesn't help make amends, but it creates arguments
your divine influence is a blatant pretense
guess the source you draw from wasn't made for everyone
I'll wait until you are done making fools out of everyone
using hate speech and misinterpreting old words
I'll wait until you are done making fools out of everyone
using hate speech and misinterpreting old words
to serve your purposes now
Track Name: great again
(USA..USA...USA...WOW!)
if change is what you want, then I hope for all our sake's
the change you represent is like you: completely fake
we laughed and shook our heads with disgust and skeptic's fear
but when the results came back we knew the end was here
great again. will we ever be great again?
when were we comparing now to again?
great again. did it ever make any sense?
some men get inspired by vague statements
some say either way we never had a choice
while others hang their heads
and never raise their voice
(What a great honor it must be...for you to honor me tonight. *LOL*)
Track Name: pangaea
well, I know you had your reasons
but you probably should have disclosed them before you left the state
and I guess I never deserved you.
doesn't matter now. you're not here anymore
I felt the wake you left behind
Remember your front lawn? The plans we had to grow?
An endless list was drawn of places we could go
Now I'm on a solo mission to carry on what was drawn
I felt the wake you left behind
Life seems to take the good friends I find
Take note of all the days that we ever spent discovering
Make peace with how it ends. We'll always have the younger years
Take note of all the days. We'll always have the younger years
No matter where you are, I hope you found your home
If I could find my own I won't be so alone
I wonder where you are?
