Track Name: Awkward People
Awkward people walk on our streets,
Stiffened backs and arms that don’t swing
Where are they going? What do they know?
That I don’t

Awkward people think clearly too,
A weathered highway between mind and mouth
They know where they're going; they're always there
They never had a place to start

Oh, there’s a far better chance that I will win,
So get back in the car, we’ll take a spin
Never mind all the colours and trees you’ll see;
Try to focus here on you and me
Track Name: No Ghost, No Mess
Are you leaving? Or just getting in?
It’s hard for me to tell

Are you staying? Or just waiting out?
It’s hard for me to tell

You won’t be so lucky

No ghost, no mess
So long, my friend
You're buzzing around my head

So long, my friend

What’s the story now? Just wait it out?
It’s hard for me to tell
Track Name: On the Fence
I'm on the fence;
Observing, wandering
Which way to slip?
Which way to borrow another step?
Which way to God?
I'll cut my losses now

Well, it had never even fazed you!
Am I right?
Am I easily swayed?

And with a minor blow,
You're perfect in lovers' eyes;
And so it goes,
It's something to advertise

I'm all liquored up;
And you're a house;
I used to visit
How I get so nostalgiac when I'm fed up

Am I right?
Am I easily swayed?
Track Name: Lose the Attitude
Your words are well received;
Finding it hard to breathe
What, do you have simple thoughts?

Your purpose is in question;
Your will is strong and destined;
And I don't know why I stay

Looking out to view was a gamble;
Opportunity looked, Complacency ruled
Oh, you have had too many;
Trust me, I know

Pacing around back and forth;
Never planted in one place;
And I don't know why I stay

Lose the Attitude,
Lose the Attitude,
Lose the Attitude
Track Name: Heavy in Step
My head’s the lightest that it’s ever been;
Perhaps you could help lift my legs
For all the ideas never to return;
I’ve never seen a smile quite like that

My head’s the lightest it’s ever been

Just a little heavy in step,
Just a little heavy in step

Your hair’s the darkest that I’ve ever seen;
A race to see the top will prove nothing
I won’t concede, you won’t succeed;
That's my bet
I’ve never seen a smile quite like yours

Just a little heavy in step,
Just a little heavy in step
Track Name: Between Lakes
Five more and you'll be home, son;
You didn't expect me to run
Get some wine; we'll fill our faces
I could not avoid all of your graces

All of us; We're in it for the haul,
Or at least until we hit that wall
When inside; just like you said
My tongue tasted the stalest bread

You would knock, and I would answer
I sure am glad I found her

I sure hope my mind don't get as feeble,
'Cause I thought this church would have more people
Track Name: What You Look Like
You move too fast, I will never catch you;
Colour on the lines, it’s the surest sign;
When the sweet grass grows
In between the boards of a run down shed

You'll want to mind what’s said;
Or you’ll wind up dead

Because the flashing lights brighten up your eyes;
When the dimming smiles are controlled by dials;
I can see the followers you choose;
I can see when you will start to lose

You know what you look like with your eyes closed,
You know what you look like with your eyes closed,
You know what you look like with your eyes closed;
When smoke meets cloud we’ll see who cares

When you’ve receded back to the lowest tide,
It will never feel better, even when you cry;
When the sweet grass grows
In between the boards of a run down shed

You'll want to mind what’s said;
Or you’ll wind up dead
Track Name: None the Wiser
Listen, Feel, Absorb, Relax, Reflect;
How'd it go?
What do you think?

Take it all in;
Take it all apart;
Take it in stride

Your eyes are wide;
As are mine

We're stuck here;
Oh, I just realized

He told me he was numb today;
I didn't know what to say,
So I smiled like I understood

Behold the man;
Can't handle his plan;
So I'll sit down again;
The place I do every week

The new day is none the wiser,
and neither am I;

We're stuck here;
Oh, I just realized
Track Name: Patience My Patient
Patience, my patient;
You’ll be alright
Colour on your napkin,
But stay in the lines

The spot on the ground;
Confuses your mind
A thousand times you’ve seen it

But you won’t find comfort in there

Each glance a little change;
A darker blue
Every time you mention it;
Receding back to

Patience, my patient;
The volume’s down
At an even setting,
Just how you need it

Think of the last time you held her hand
Followed by a November;

But you won't find comfort in there;
Comfort, despair;
Comfort
