"Miserable Exaggeration" as written by John Reuben Zappin and Brandon Harris....
Inconsistent, my feelings change quicker
Than I can get the words out and tell you what I’m thinking
Inconsistent, I don’t have much grace or patience
I hold this grudge and my tongue no further statements

It plays out in my mind
All the lost words I could have used to describe
And even though it’s left such a bad taste in my mouth
I guess I’d rather swallow my pride than spit it out

What a miserable exaggeration
Happier said than done
What a wasted conversation
In my head everyone was listening
Everyone was interested

Failure cuts the spirit to hear
That’s why I have to let my pride interfere
I’ll take it from there
If you see me acting differently, don’t worry

That’s just me, dialoging with me internally
About the hypothetical over analytical, still what do I know
Central Ohio’s gray skies provide a lot of time to be stuck inside
Close the world out, introvert's paradise

What a miserable exaggeration
Happier said than done
What a wasted conversation
In my head everyone was interested
Everyone was listening

It’s that wishy washy, topsy turvy monotony
I’ve been here before both emotionally and logically
You know that you know until the wind blows
It’s as easy as no and as hard as no

People pleasers never win, spread yourself too thin
It’s best to just do what you feel in the end
But you’ll change how you feel for the sake of the truth
When the world you’re living in becomes bigger than you

What a miserable exaggeration
Happier said than done
What a wasted conversation
In my head everyone was interested

What a miserable exaggeration
Happier said than done
What a wasted conversation
In my head everyone was listening
Everyone was interested

    General CommentI dont have an ultimate meaning of this whole song but i must say i love the third verse. i feel like this often, when people, especially Christians, are trying so hard to make people happy that they wont stick to the truth. If someone is sinning, we should tell them that what they're doing is wrong, even if its not an easy message to give ("it's as easy as no and as hard as no").
    dont get me wrong, im not saying we should be judgemental creeps about it, but we cant compromise the truth to make others feel good.
    also, i like the stuff about having conversations in your head. like when someone makes you mad, and you come up with the perfect comeback to defend yourself....three days later! I hold conversations in my head all the time about how i'm gonna defend myself and my actions to those who dont understand them, but the real-life conversation rarely plays out how i planned it ("in my head everyone was interested, everyone was listening")
