The outro's cool and the story is well-told and heartbreaking, but I feel like this shift toward storytelling might hurt the vocal melodies a bit. Hopefully it's good.

I really like the instrumentals, but my god I actually hate these lyrics. What I liked about their debut was that the lyrics were
ominous and quite abstract.(swallowing city lines and what not) but this has potential to be great.

The lyrics are actually what I was dubious about, but I felt that they fit the song surprisingly well

Dude, when he talked about playing video games I kinda laughed a little bit, which I don't think is a good thing when you are trying to be emotional and stuff. Eh, maybe the other songs will click with me better.

Good song, but I'm also unsure about the lyrics. When lyrics are this specific, I find them less interesting and harder to relate to. We'll see how the rest of the album turns out I suppose.

god what happened to this bands lyrical ability, WITTMF is in my top 5 albums of all time in terms of lyrics but this just sounds like an old man rambling while looking through a photo album, i cringed so hard at the line about video games ugh
