"Ever feel like your relationship is an awkward slow dance, where you and your partner are constantly tripping over each other and struggling to find a balance that makes everyone happy?  “Faults” is my most honest attempt at telling that story.  The song begins with an unapologetic tone, defending the petty jabs we take at each other, and evolves to explain that we only want to feel acknowledged.  My goal was to try to depict how an actual argument goes down in with my girl, and when all is said and done, I feel painfully guilty, even unworthy of what I’m truly blessed with.  I urge everybody to remember that the shallow conflicts we find ourselves in are nothing to crushing loneliness we could have instead.  Tell her you love her, because we don’t deserve anything at all." Lyrics: When you pass the blame think again if it’s to me Your concerns are none of my concern I think I might just leave Actively making my voices but passively So that you’re left to wonder if I’m mad and what I really mean Its pretty funny right? Hope that soon enough you catch on That when I’m playing with your emotions I’m having fun I know it’s wrong but for some reason I keep it going strong It’s dawned on me that I’m sadistic twisted when I play along Call me on my faults you know I do the same to you Every day when we fight it seems it’s always something new I love it though Makes it actually seem real for a second But I know I’ve learned my lessons counting tallies never blessings Back to studying your every move it’s one of my obsessions Can’t believe you look the other way and keep on letting me Get away with all I get away with second guessing if it’s your fault I wanted to write a song today and so I wrote a song I got somewhat emotional and so I called my mom It’s funny how we deal with what we have for so long Project my insecurities right up on the wall Autobiography I guess is what you’d call it That projector of mine I wonder how you uninstall it I think I’d know the answer if by chance I ever saw it But I doubt I ever will so for now I’ll keep talking like.. All I got to say to you doesn’t always come across how I meant for it to I meant it when I say my every word is true But my sincerity is drowned in my bad attitude It’s 9 am and I’m already sorry I constantly make it rain on your party That I wasn’t even invited to I guess that’s all I really want from you The hostility that lives in me I don’t know how to fake What it takes to lie and keep the peace I know you know that face barely hanging by my sanity what’s wrong inside my brain Can’t account for why I put us through another hurricane but wait You couldn’t see the fine print when you signed I don’t blame you for your positivity at the time Hard to believe even in me you saw the light So innocently unaware it brings tears to my eyes I’m a charity case no other way around it I’m a hundred stairs and you’re forever falling down it Whatever keeps you hear forever grateful that you found it I owe my happiness to you even with I’m without it Yeah

"I went through a period in the last year where I felt like nothing was worth doing and everything seemed totally bleak. For the life of me I couldn’t pin point a real reason I was feeling this way, and it just made me feel even worse. “It’s Aright” is a tribute to those dark patches we inevitably fall into through the course of our lives. I think it’s important to note that just by acknowledging these feelings, you’re already facing them head on, which tends to make things seem a little brighter. Depression doesn’t always need a reason and it’s often pointless to search for one, so with that, I hope everybody can remember that it gets better, just give it time." Lyrics: I got a lot on my mind and it feels like Maybe I don’t want to wake up keeping closed eyes This smile’s getting harder to wear as a disguise Please do not resuscitate where do I sign, yeah Rough days that come back to back The last one came with a side of panic attack I know it’s chill and I try not to over react Got hit and didn’t know that I was up to bat, yeah It’s been the music gets me through it all But lately I’ve been turning more to drugs and alcohol It’s like I’m coping with the hurt what I’ve done wrong That and writing down the words that I put in these songs, yeah The truth is that I struggle day to day Figure out defining who I am and what to say I just want to tell my story in a relatable way And tell my girl we’re gonna make it it will all be ok But fuck it 2x It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright 2x And I don’t want to think, too much time to be alone Why I gotta smoke and drink to get up in my zone What’s it even mean if I never leave my home and Whats’s the point if I never take off my headphones 2x Wish I could take off these lenses Wish that I could see over these fences Wish everything wouldn’t make me apprehensive Wish that I could feel the real consequences Be the captain of your fate, master of your soul This philosophical shit is getting old The substances that I take make my mind consoled I can’t win with this hand I guess it’s time to fold Yeah I do a lot of drugs hoping I find just what I’m searching But sometimes I see an ugly side of me emerging Burry them deep down these feelings that are hurting And if I lose my mind behind the sadness it’s deserved well At least I’m talking bout it I hope you don’t mind In retrospect I think my souls another kind One that doesn’t know what type of happiness I’ll find and If I never find it least these beats will stay shining like It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright 2x And I don’t want to think, too much time to be alone Why I gotta smoke and drink to get up in my zone What’s it even mean if I never leave my home and Whats’s the point if I never take off my headphones 2x
