Track Name: Selective Attention
Sometimes I forget about what got me here in the first place
All my attention is typically dead seat on anything meant to bring me down
I get hung up on the negative feedback as if the positive has no weight

This mind of mine may be a bit unbalanced and despondent at times
But if I can manage to embrace the damage I'll be one step closer to where I wanna be

My eyes adjust to see what's been right there in front of me this whole time
Distractions fade to black as I focus my vision to forget what I won't miss

You can't expect to reach your goals without running into some obstacles along the way
It really is just a matter of time before they try and discourage you

So sing louder than before
No doubter can ignore this talent that's in store

The path ahead of me is full of traps and bends as far as I can see
At least I have a read on what to expect and avoid to reach my destination

My eyes adjust to see what's been right there in front of me this whole time
Distractions fade to black as I focus my vision to forget what I won't miss

My eyes adjust to see what's been right there in front of me this entire time
Distractions fade to black as I focus my vision to forget what I won't miss

I said I'll focus my vision to forget what I won't miss
Track Name: Gone
Trust me, I'm good at sensing a lie
When you told me that things were fine, your lips were shaking
It's so frustrating

If all I'm good for is building you up to be broken down
Then I'm better off alone, away, a ghost

We both know I never cling to you
That's why I'm so confused
There's really no excuse
Don't blink or you'll miss me when I forget about us and all we had

It's not hard to see that I'm not to you what you are to me
And all this arguing makes it easy to hate you and hard to breathe
If you think I'll put up with this, you'll find out you thought wrong
'Cause by this time tomorrow you'll look for me and find out I'm long gone

So much for keeping us in check
I'm exhausted and out of breath from the weight I've been bearing alone

You don't talk to me like you do my friends
You keep me distant; keep my hanging around
...and around and around we go

It's not hard to see that I'm not to you what you are to me
And all this arguing makes it easy to hate you and hard to breathe
If you think I'll put up with this, you'll find out you thought wrong
'Cause by this time tomorrow you'll look for me and find out I'm long gone

I'm not to you what you are to me
This is getting old
It's easy to hate you and hard to breathe
I have grown so cold
Track Name: Head Change
Whenever it feels like the world is turning just to shut you down, you'll need to accept that you're thinking irrationally
Thoughts like that are fabricated by your own mind as a cop out

'Cause every time that you label your failures as a sign from a greater power saying "you weren't meant to succeed", you're robbing yourself the chance of achieving what you had initially planned to
With this mentality, you're only bound to fail

It's time for a head change

This destructive mindset is not grounded in reality
We're losing you
You're so delusional because it's easier to quit than to try again

(x2)

For every second spent second guessing yourself, you're moving equally as far in the wrong direction
So find your way back to the start

It's time for a head change

This destructive mindset is not grounded in reality
We're losing you
You're so delusional because it's easier to quit than to try again

(x2)

For every second spent second guessing yourself, you're moving equally as far in the wrong direction
So find your way back to the start
Track Name: Follow Through
If all it took to advance in life was talking of every plan that you'd like to achieve without even making an effort to do so, then everyone would never want or need to try
Nothing ventured, nothing lost but a will to fight
And I'm so thankful that things aren't like that

I only keep to myself...

'Cause you talk enough for the both of us
I've heard it all before and I'm sure that you're running out of breath
By now I hope you're starting to accept that you're never gonna get where you wanna be
You've gotta work as much as you wanna speak in order to accomplish anything
I know you'd rather say than do, but no one's gonna listen up unless you follow through

I'll be the first to admit that I've been subject to quit
I'm the king of excuses; prone to being reclusive
But I've learned how to make my way through this
I'm driven by failures and a hunger for greater things
With that being said, I've got too much on my plate and my head to let out so soon
I'll transpose these emotions into melodies chosen to reflect my drive

'Cause you talk enough for the both of us
I've heard it all before and I'm sure that you're running out of breath
By now I hope you're starting to accept that you're never gonna get where you wanna be
You've gotta work as much as you wanna speak in order to accomplish anything
I know you'd rather say than do, but no one's gonna listen up unless you follow through

I can tell by the words you say
The drive is there but the work you hate
You put up a front and it's all for the sake of the conversation at hand

If change is what you intend to find, it all begins with your frame of mind
In time you won't have to search for words; they'll be said about you instead

You'll then reflect after one long day on the power of actions over what you say
If and when from there you keep up the routine you'll be moving in the right direction

A week, a month, and a year have gone by
You don't bring it up much because you don't have the time
Everyone who ever doubted you is now on your side
'Cause what you said in the past is coming to light
