“Effort” lyrics:

Your stunning view is disappearing / behind four million dollar walls /
not that you had the chance to see it / with your second job /
and you realize that no one cares how hard you have to work /
or that you’re secretly a genius on your second book /
it’s been a long time coming / you are only pages away /
from being called the new Norman Mailer / from having your own parade /

There’s not a lot of effort to / put in to staying here / move across the world / see if I care

A crane is hanging in the night sky / wrapped up in holiday lights /
construction ringing rhythmless in / a somewhat silent night /
and you realize that no one here is waiting for your call /
and if you jumped into the river / no one cares at all /
it’s been a long time coming / you are only pages away /
from showing up at your old high school / carrying your N.B.A /

There’s not a lot of effort to / put in to staying here / move across the world / see if I care
