Track Name: Answers
It's been a long time
Since we spoke to an extent about our past,
'Cause truth's a land mine
And we're tip-toeing around to avoid the blast.

They say that you can pick your friends, oh and
You can pick your brain, but you all know the rest.
But if you don't break the rules and try to understand
I'd say picking friends is just a guessing game at best.

Asking questions to answers
I'm too afraid to admit that I already know.

It's been a long time
Since I took a real good look in the mirror.
Could that face be mine?
'Cause it's not the way I thought that I appeared.

I've lost the confidence to say I'm sure
I know any of my friends anymore.
And to be fair it's not like I can say
I know anything about myself anyway.

Asking questions to answers
I'm too ashamed to admit that I already know.
Track Name: The World's Not A Simple Place To Live
The world's not a simple place to live
Though some of us will tell you that it is.
It's "eat, sleep, work" and then repeat and don't forget to give.
But the world's not a simple place to live.

And the world's not an honest place to live
I mean honestly, did you really think that it is?
You can do your best, but it's useless if it's not lucrative.
Oh the world's not an honest place to live.

They'll tell you one thing, but learn to read their mind.
Don't become too confident, you know the narcissistic kind.
"We don't need authentic, the same old narrative is fine."
'Cause the world's not a simple place to live.

No the world's not easy for you and I.
But it's easy to start wondering why.
Why you dot your I's and cross your T's and keep praying to the sky.
But the world's not easy for you and I.

And the world's not forgiving to you or I
But I'll forgive you if you were lead to believe in that lie.
You do what you're told, when you're told
Yeah you're just trying to get by, oh dry your eyes, just dry your eyes.
'Cause the world's not forgiving to you or I.

They'll tell you one thing, but learn to read their mind.
Don't become too confident, you know the narcissistic kind.
"We don't need authentic, the same old narrative is fine."
'Cause the world's not a simple place to live.

And if you thought this isn't what you signed up for.
You've been a fool, this world is cruel, am I the first to tell you this?
This unforgiving, dishonest place is as hard as it is complex.
It's inconsistent, bruised and broke, and people are full of shit.
They'll lead you on, entirely wrong, but they're not a better fit
For this empty, violent, fucked up world that we're all living in.

No the world's just not any place to live.
