    Never Better's sound could best be described as an aggressive mixture between 'Coheed and Cambria' and 'The Story So Far'. The name of the newly released EP is worth investigating, and fits the album well across the board as the songs work the listener through many different emotions.

Track Name: Introspective
I met you before the show. Rosation on your cheeks and chest.
And I never thought that we'd end up like this. But we all change. Try him on, hit the bed. Tie the knot, burn the bridge. You can run 'til you're sick, but you know that I’m pissed."
Track Name: Anguish
Well when the cold came we both called it quits. No pointing fingers, I’m as vulnerable as you. We both knew that we’d end up this way. I guess that this is just our day, and I don’t want to under play you. "She’s just off track”. And I’m pacing in this staircase, wondering if it was something I did or I said that got me in this situation. But I know just how wrong things can go..Well I’ve been waiting for someone to come and clue me in on what to do without you. To spend my life without you just seems like such a grand mistake, but i know that I will always think of you and him in that bed. Fornicator, where are you sleeping tonight? Fornicator, you’re just so ugly inside. You’re a sad image of a woman who in anger acted foolish and I can’t help but to feel sorry for you. I know you felt loved, but I guess you’d rather get some. Well I’ve been waiting for someone to come and clue me in on what to do without you. To spend my life without you just seems like such a grand mistake, but i know that I will always think of you and him in that bed.
Track Name: Schemer
Pull myself up, jump back in the game. I played so innocently until now. But if it’s coming down to picking sides, then you can go your own way. I don’t need you. And if it’s coming down to starting fights, well I’ve got something to say. You never taught, it was all hypocritical. I never thought it was you that would do me wrong. I always thought that it was best to view all people in their best state. I never thought that you could be so cynical, condemning, penetrating, exceptive, analytical. I think it’s time we venture ties with defamation. You're such a schemer. You play the game so well. But when the push comes to shove, you're not under the gun. You're at the trigger. I never thought that I'd be, thought that I'd be running from you. You're having coffee with my girl, I hope it burns you. I do. But it's just you. And I've been too caught up in this to think through. I knew that you were on call if I ever fell through. And I knew it was you on the phone. Yea, I knew that she was already gone. I guess I thought I could run from it all but I was fooling myself. You’re such a schemer.
Track Name: Empathy
It's for the better, that's what I said last spring when you left me. Well I put my hope in the worst things. But you specialize in your bed springs. You're pulling pages from the book that we wrote last September on a night that you'll always regret. I can't look past everything. I can't look past what you've done. When you say "I'm so set on done, I think I can live my life with purpose without feeling so un-done" and I'll say “But I'm so set on us. Where did the time go? When did things change?”. Hey. If you can take our love and throw it all away, then I know that it's over. And if you can reminisce and say it’s all ok, then I know that it's over. And if I'm never ok..It's when you say "I'm so set on done, I think I can live my life with purpose without feeling so un-done" and I'll say "But I'm so set on us. Where did the time go? When did things change?”. If I thought that you were anything that's less than brilliant, I’d still walk through a dozen states; a thousand miles for you. Yea, I've got empathy, affinity, but I can't appreciate the situation because I'm in it so deep. Yea, I've got empathy.
Track Name: Indigo
I'd give it all, I'd ask to take you back. I can't believe it’s just been so hard on me that I don’t think I could ever go back. I guess I’ll let you go. I’ll leave it. F*ck the time with you. Conceived it, now I'll see it through. I pushed this farther and farther. I can't stand to burden the things you did. You’re just a liar. Cut my teeth on leaving you, but that might give you the easy way out. I'm still down, and I might drown, I need purpose. I guess it's safe to say we're through. I guess this didn't mean much to you. Well I heard we’re making up, faking up, but that's not sincerity. I’ll move on, 'cause you're long gone. And I should be too. I never meant to let you take so much heart from me. I never meant to let this angst become part of me. I never planned to fall far from who I used to be. I never wanted this. I never wanted this.
