Track Name: You Were Wrong
"You Were Wrong"
Featuring Jessica Ryan
Music + Words by Ben Landis

I thought you weren’t real
When it took you by surprise
That I was sick of playing games
And dealing with your lies

But then you begged me not to leave
A new kind of exchange
You said you would be different now
You promised you could change

You were wrong
I was right
Don’t need your excuses
And I’m not gonna fight
You were wrong
You blew it in the end
And now you’re gone

I never should have trusted you
I should have seen the signs
That you never meant a word you said
And now I’m spending time

Down at the bottom
With all these broken dreams
That slammed into the wall
Cause just when things started to look good
You went and wrecked them all

You were wrong
I was right
Don’t need your excuses
And I’m not gonna fight
You were wrong
You blew it in the end
And now you’re gone

I know that you were never worth it
Still it hurts that I wasted time
Trying to make you right
But when I saw the length of deception
I had my guarantee
Cause it didn’t matter what you could be
You never would have done it for me

You were wrong
Don’t need your excuses
And I’m not gonna fight
You were wrong
I’m finished with your games
Cause you were wrong
I was right
And I’m done with excuses
And I’m not gonna fight
You were wrong
You blew it in the end
I mean you screwed it in the end
And now you’re gone
Track Name: Reason
"Reason"
Featuring Jessica Ryan
Music + Words by Ben Landis

I think I’m lost but I can’t look around
And if I try I’m sure I won’t be found
There’s only a choice I have to make
There’s only a heart I have to break

We knew that it would be a harder day
And I thought we could find another way
Just tell me, does your love ever cry?
Just tell me how long that my love will try

Cause I’ve fallen down
But I won’t give into the game you’re playing
Taking over my life
And I cannot be so forgiving
So I can see now
There is a reason to leave

It had to be the last time that I saw you
We were deciding what we wouldn’t be
You couldn’t be anything you weren’t
And I could not be anything but me

And I’ve heard it all
But I won’t give into the game you’re playing
Taking over my life
And I cannot be so forgiving
So I can see now
There is a reason

I believe that a feeling
Is not all you’re dealing
And not all that really matters now
Because I just bought a ticket
I’m leaving
Right now

Cause I won’t give into the game you’re playing
Taking over my life
And I cannot be so forgiving
So I can see now
So I can see now
Give into the game you’re playing
Taking over my life
And I cannot be so forgiving
So I can see now
So I can see now
I have a reason
I have a reason
I have a reason
I have a reason

Now I look around and have
A reason to believe
Track Name: Unexpected
"Unexpected"
Featuring Jessica Ryan
Music + Words by Ben Landis

Another rumor
But this is what I get
For waking up each day

I thought we’re too old
For digging into trash
For stuff we want to say

Did someone tell you
That it makes you cool?
Or is your ego making
All the rules?

So you thought you’d gotten to me
And you made your getaway
But you never saw it coming
I stole your friends away
Unexpected

Ooh, no no

It’s never ending
You pick your targets
Based on who you think won’t fight

Then with your groupies
You laugh about their clothes
Or what they did last night

Will someone tell me
What’s your deal?
Or do I have to show you
How it feels?

So you thought you’d gotten to me
And you made your getaway
But you never saw it coming
I stole your friends away
Unexpected

The payback for
Every lie you sold
Cause it’s biting, so inviting
And it’s best served cold

So you thought you’d gotten to me
And you made your getaway
But you never saw it coming
I stole your friends away
So you thought you’d gotten to me
And you made your getaway
But you never saw it coming
I let you slip away

Did it sting when it hit you
You never saw it come your way
No you didn’t
No you didn’t see it
Did it sting when it hit you
You never saw it come your way
No you didn’t
No you didn’t see it

Track Name: Malignant Love
"Malignant Love"
Featuring Jessica Ryan
Music by Ben Landis
Words by Ben Landis & Megan Bachant

Drunk when I first met you
We made out on your car
Within minutes trading insults
We took it way too far

Don’t know why I liked it
I’m sure you never cared
It was terrible to start with
And it just got worse from there

Every time we fight
I wish I could escape this malignant love
But when I cry
You know I couldn’t break this malignant love
This is our chaos
And we never get enough
So we fight, we scream
We’ll never leave
What is the appeal of malignant love?

Does anybody understand?

Always love to make a scene
So we ruin every party
It becomes a big routine

And always leave together
Cause we’re codependent pros
You’re seething, dysfunctional
I’m tearing off your clothes

Every time we fight
I wish I could escape this malignant love
But when I cry
You know I couldn’t break this malignant love
This is our chaos
And we never get enough
So we fight, we scream
We’ll never leave
What is the appeal of malignant love?

I’ve got you on your knees
We both know you’ll never do as good as me
This struggle
Eternally at war
I just want more

Every time we fight
I wish I could escape this malignant love
But when you cry
I’m falling deeper in this malignant love
This is our chaos
And we never get enough
Yeah we go so well
We’re a match from hell
What is the appeal of malignant love?
This is our chaos
And we never get enough
Cause it feels so right
Just to hear us fight
What is the appeal of malignant love?

Do you get the appeal of malignant love?
This love
I can’t escape this love
