Rex Mobin I am in love with the overall production of "joy". The drums are so dry and Lopez's voice crawls into your pores. You can feel pain, truth, and victory in these songs. I can't help but sing along, start to finish. Favorite track: Temporary.

Let Me Down 02:38
You stay up late again and burn your regrets I never learn from my mistakes maybe I know better than to open up my mouth again and ruin it all. Dare i dare you to tell me the truth you can be honest for once is love an accurate description if it disappears like it wasn't there at all? It's something you never liked to talk about I love you but time is running out We were so selfish and stupid that day our clothes were thoroughly soaked the rain was wetter then I bet and I feel better when I get to see you. You be the monster and I'll be the ghost you see right through me anyway a sign I guess it's hard to miss that no one gets how hard it is to be you. It's something you never liked to talk about I love you but time is running out I love you but it's torture just waiting around I love you but you really let me down you really let me down.

Temporary 03:15
You're just going through a phase wipe that stupid smirk off of your face does the world look brand new? Do you still remember your favorite food? 'Cause i do. Do you have to go? It's bittersweet to know i never knew you this feeling must be temporary. Fuck your dad for leaving you Fuck your mom for going crazy too You're a victim you're a witch Try to drown you but it's useless. It's useless. Do you have to go? It's bittersweet to know i never knew you this feeling must be temporary Do you have to go? It's bittersweet to know i never knew you Your love was only temporary.

Earlybird 02:56
Tried to be an earlybird Truthfully I tried to make it work Usually mornings make me sick It's not easy to admit it That I've been missing in part for a long time But what's left is here to stay Tried to be an earlybird Every sunrise song just came out slurred Overthought and overspent Some things aren't worth the commitment I've been missing in part for a long time But what's left is here to stay I've been leaving, the feeling comes in waves But what's left is here to stay But what's left is here to stay.

We've been separating For months by now Always second place so What's different now? Oh can I ask who's speaking? Your voice is rough You're drifting further backwards I'll keep in touch There's no point in fighting We're worlds apart there's no sense in hiding Your plastic heart Oh can I ask who's speaking We talk too much You'll call again tomorrow I won't pick up Don't bother I won't pick up.
